These days our culture seems to expect overcommitment and over-connectedness to one's work. Add this expectation to the constant pings from our devices and you get a very fragmented day. It's time we focus on eliminating distractions and managing our time better. It's time we focus on the right things at the right time. But how do you know what the "right thing" is? We'll cover that and other things that will help you do more by doing less.

The original slide deck has been reduced to make more sense in a "slides-only" context.
