Overview

To succeed in today’s ever-accelerating world, speed is the name of the game. Forget “slow and steady wins the race.” The key to getting ahead is not fighting or hiding from speed, but embracing speed and using its power to your advantage. As Vince Poscente demonstrates in this rewarding and, yes, fast-paced book, speed has a unique ability to enrich your life. He empowers you to take control of your time, your tasks, your priorities, and your talents, and start making life everything you want it to be. Twenty new tips–exclusive to this paperback edition–show you how to:

• recognize the difference between repetitive chores and passionate pursuits, and assign the appropriate amount of time and energy to each

• mentally shatter the outdated idea that work, home, and leisure should be completely separate, and create a new, purpose-driven model of organizing your time

• discover how to control interruptions, including how and when to accept them–by learning when to multitask and when to focus

Speed provides amazing benefits–you become more conscious of how you spend your time, understand your authentic purpose, and find yourself more flexible and open to new opportunities. When you harness the power of speed, your life and work become less stressful, less busy, and more balanced. What are you waiting for?
