The Art of Less Doing

  1. 1. The Art of Less Doing
  2. 2. Ari Meisel Founder, Author, Coach Optimize, Automate, and Outsource Everything in Life.
  3. 3. 1. Optimize 2. Automate 3. Outsource
  4. 4.  80% of the consequences flow from 20% of the causes.  80% of the results come from 20% of the effort and time.  80% of company profits come from 20% of the products and customers.  80% of all stock market gains are realized by 20% of the investors and 20% of an individual portfolio.
  5. 5. One of the most important things you can do to have a life of Less Doing is to have a system that allows you to find anything at any time. You need constant, universal, instant access to everything you know.
  6. 6.  We’re fortunate to live in a world where we have great access to thousands of products at cheap prices, all readily available.  However, when a product is created to work for everybody, there’s a good chance it won’t be exactly right for you.  If a problem presents itself to you, a solution may or may not exist. If it doesn’t, creating it may be easier than you think.
  7. 7.  The concept of choosing your own workweek comes back to timing. This applies to people with 9-to-5 jobs as well as people with more flexible schedules.  The idea is that some times are better than others for certain people to do certain things.  By choosing your own workweek, you set up your schedule to match tasks to your best times for them.
  8. 8. Don’t run errands, ever, ever, ever again. They’re not efficient, and there’s no way to make them efficient. They’re a waste of your time.
  9. 9.  The Less Doing lifestyle is about efficiency, and this efficiency should translate to financial savings, too.  It’s not enough to simply manage your finances. You want to be a financial sushi chef, cutting out all of the fat and leaving nothing but the tastiest bits.
  10. 10.  Organization comes in many forms, from mental checklists to email processes to designing the layout of your physical space.  Many people find it difficult to get or stay organized, but we have a method that is simple to execute and requires only a modicum of discipline to follow.  It’s all about setting limits.
  11. 11. Batching is all about “getting in the zone” and minimizing transition time. Instead of constantly getting interrupted and switching focus, you let similar tasks accumulate and deal with them all at once.
  12. 12. Wellness is the foundation of everything else. As technologically efficient as I can make you, you’re still a person. If you’re not sleeping enough or eating well, there’s a limit to how productive you can be.
