Episode #393: My new book, Time Rich, is out today + 10 Productivity Tips

Today’s the day (finally)! My fifth book, Time Rich: Do Your Best Work, Live Your Best Life, is now available. The book was originally slated for release in May, but with all of the uncertainty surrounding coronavirus at the time, my publisher (Wiley) and I decided to push it back to October, thinking that the world would have returned to some semblance of normality by then.

While that isn’t exactly the case, the book is perhaps more relevant now than ever, with people spending, on average, 11 hours a day staring at screens since remote work became more than just a fringe startup and freelancer movement, and a reality for almost everybody employed in a white collar profession. As Roman statesman and philosopher Seneca put it almost two millennia ago, “people are frugal with their money but not with their time”, but unlike money, time cannot be earned back once we’ve spent it and it is by virtue of the shortness of life, the most precious commodity we have.

Time Rich builds upon the foundation laid by my Harvard Business Review article,The Case For the 6-Hour Workday, and provides actionable insights for not only the lone worker, but teams and leaders at large organizations. It’s about reorganizing how we work - something we’ve never truly learned how to do - in order to not just be more productive and more innovative, but free up time to lead our best lives.

The book has been endorsed by a number of thought leaders, including Adam Grant, Nir Eyal and Whitney Johnson. Adam Grant (bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take) was kind enough to say that “Steve Glaveski understands something that few leaders have figured out: it’s possible to do less and get more done. This book offers a blueprint for working smarter.” Nir Eyal (bestselling author of Hooked and Indistractable) put it simply; “Steve Glaveski offers countless ways to get more out of each day”. If you’re looking to get more out of your days - whether that be at work or in your personal life - then I am sure that a modest investment in this book will repay itself in orders of magnitude.

And if you’re not convinced, below you’ll find ten quick tips which scratch the surface of what you will find in Time Rich.
