Slides for a half hour tour through three segments where little improvements can make a big impact on your life as consultant:
1) Evading Entropy (GTD, inbox zero, etc.)
2) Staying Sane (Gear to take on the road, staying focused, fitness in the hotel, realizing 5-4-3, winding down)
3) Hidden Happiness (measures against Monday morning bitterness, connecting with people and having a laugh once in a while)
