Leverage literally means “using something to gain the maximum advantage.”
Because life moves so fast, most people end up getting mired down in tactical activities and don’t take the time to balance tactical with strategic to get the greatest benefit of both. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a formula for getting the most leverage out of your career to get the right results faster?
In his powerful new book, best-selling author Tony Jeary, hits the mark again by diving deeper into his breakthrough concept of HLAs (High Leverage Activities) that was introduced in his best selling book, Strategic Acceleration, and was devised from decades of studying and honing the best practices of working with the world’s top CEOs and most successful people.
HLAs are those things that if you do them consistently will have the biggest impact on getting the results you want. By leveraging those things and minimizing or eliminating other non-critical things that take up time but have little or no value, you can maximize your time spent with less energy and effort in the process. This means getting more done with less. It means getting more accomplished faster. It means achieving goals in reduced time. It means creating a competitive advantage from the way you think.
The foundation of this book is rooted in the idea that success is a results contest and that achieving superior results is based on both eliminating the distractions that plague us daily and learning how to identify and focus on the things that really matter. If you’re ready to change your thinking, let LEVERAGE help you identify your HLAs so you can discover a whole new world of opportunity and success both personally and professionally.
