Top Productivity Hacks
By Jan Rezab
Serial Entrepreneur, Founder of
Time is relative. How we experience time is also relative.
And what we can manage in given time
is completely up to us.
That’s why try hard to learn do everything
faster and get done more in less time.
How to Approach Work?
My actual calendar

Think in “Blocks”

As people, we are short on time…

I try to plan my day perfectly
so every block counts

My Overview in 2015
Why do I live according
to these principles?
“We have a certain limited amount
of productive years on this planet.”

education
making money
giving it away
I started my first company when I was 14.
Messed it up, learned a lot and started over.
I’m 29 and have been working for 15 years now.

... and I try to make as productive as possible
Communication
Entertainment
Business
Social Networking
Design
My business relies on perfect communication.
I make sure to have inbox zero.
COMMUNICATION
Managing 800 Pesky Emails a Day
DELETE “SPAM” FIRST
Delete all the emails that are clearly irrelevant straight away.
USE FILTERS
I’ve built my own set of filters, identifying urgency,
responsibilities and ownership etc.
PRIORITIZE
I always handle the external messages first. The client goes first.
SET THE RULES
If someone is CC’s you in an irrelevant email,
remind them not to do that.
COMMUNICATION
Using Productivity Tools
I use email extensively, but it’s only one of the channels I use for communication.
Plain text in general does not always convey the enthusiasm or urgency.
This is why I think internal social networks and social messaging
platforms are going to replace email.
COMMUNICATION
Wunderlist Podio Slack
Social Networks is another great channel
for communication.
But don’t get too carried away. Focus.
SOCIAL NETWORKS
How to Manage Your Social
Find 5 minutes every 2 - 3 hours to check for updates.
Turn off all notifications. They just keep you from working.
If you have an important announcement to make,
dedicate more than 30 minutes
Don’t mistake social messaging for social networking.
I believe social messaging and internal social networking
are key - and it will eventually replace email.
SOCIAL NETWORKS
Sometimes you need to handle
things in person.
MEETINGS
Design a Productive Meeting
Agenda: focus on the goal.
Always try to give more than you take.
Make sure next steps are clear.
Do an immediate follow-up.
I think of every meeting is a time investment. Make sure you invest it effectively.
The best live by this: I had a meeting with a CEO of one of the largest
advertising companies in the world and as I was writing the follow-up,
he beat me to it just 46 minutes after the meeting.
MEETINGS
There are some activities
you can combine.
ACTIVITY COMBO
My Favorite Activity Combos
TV Shows & Workouts Driving & Phone Calls
Flight Time & Emails Walking & Emails
ACTIVITY COMBO
Find a great Executive Assistant.
Someone you can trust!
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT
Give your EA full access to your email account
and calendar, and allow them to send emails and other
messages on your behalf.
Set the rules very carefully
(e.g. emails must be approved before they’re sent).
Make sure your EA has your back. (If you are in a meeting,
your EA has to be able to reply urgent things).
Stellar EA Workflow
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT
Business travel
doesn’t have to be a pain.
BUSINESS TRAVEL
Flying 1 000 000 km in 5 years...
...taught me to squeeze maximum
work into
my schedule. This means I try to
do as much work when I am away
from my family as possible
and leaves me more time
to spend with my dear ones
when I am back.
BUSINESS TRAVEL
Travel Scheduling Tips
Prioritize. First take the meetings you really
want and need – for those, move your schedule around.
International travel time is a problem – if you live in Europe,
try and make trips to East Coast, West Coast,
and maybe Mexico City in one go.
BUSINESS TRAVEL
Sometimes, it can feel exhausting.
So find time for relax & creativity!
CREATIVITY
Time for Creativity!
Planes and conferences work great for me. Inspirational talks
do too, but they don’t give the same kick and vibe.
When at home, leave the office by 6 PM at the latest.
Be with your family and friends, and start working again
after the kids go to bed. It will help clear your head, and more
ideas will come in the 8PM+ work session.
CREATIVITY
I love TV shows but watching those would take up to much of my time.
So I watched all the TV shows last year at double play speed.
In the end I watched around 600 hours worth of content,
saving 300 hours = 28 productive 12 hour work days.
Need an Extra Month while Having Fun?
CREATIVITY
Work-life balance is challenging at times.
Having a supporting family and co-workers
is crucial.
TAKEAWAY
Don’t forget your health.
Find time to relax and exercise.
TAKEAWAY
And most importantly,
be productive so that you can spend
more time with the ones you care about.
TAKEAWAY
Thank you!

Top Productivity Working Hacks by Jan Rezab

  • 1. Top Productivity Hacks By Jan Rezab Serial Entrepreneur, Founder of
  • 2. Time is relative. How we experience time is also relative. And what we can manage in given time is completely up to us. That’s why try hard to learn do everything faster and get done more in less time. How to Approach Work?
  • 4. 5 840 blocks365 days 1 hour = 1 block 16 a day =x As people, we are short on time…
  • 5. +365 extra blocks per year If you give up 1 hour of sleep, you get
  • 6. I try to plan my day perfectly so every block counts
  • 7. 800 hrs external meetings (with a lot of overlap!) 1300 hrs internal meetings 1100 hrs working online 500 hrs traveling 3700 hrs worth of work My Overview in 2015
  • 8. Why do I live according to these principles?
  • 9. “We have a certain limited amount of productive years on this planet.” 20 years 20 years 20 years education making money giving it away
  • 10. I started my first company when I was 14. Messed it up, learned a lot and started over. I’m 29 and have been working for 15 years now.
  • 11. Distribution of my Online Time 1 420 hrs online in 2015 Communication Entertainment Business Social Networking Design 30 % 21 % 11 % 9 % 7 %
  • 12. ... and I try to make as productive as possible Communication Entertainment Business Social Networking Design
  • 13. My business relies on perfect communication. I make sure to have inbox zero. COMMUNICATION
  • 14. Managing 800 Pesky Emails a Day DELETE “SPAM” FIRST Delete all the emails that are clearly irrelevant straight away. USE FILTERS I’ve built my own set of filters, identifying urgency, responsibilities and ownership etc. PRIORITIZE I always handle the external messages first. The client goes first. SET THE RULES If someone is CC’s you in an irrelevant email, remind them not to do that. COMMUNICATION
  • 15. Using Productivity Tools I use email extensively, but it’s only one of the channels I use for communication. Plain text in general does not always convey the enthusiasm or urgency. This is why I think internal social networks and social messaging platforms are going to replace email. COMMUNICATION Wunderlist Podio Slack
  • 16. Social Networks is another great channel for communication. But don’t get too carried away. Focus. SOCIAL NETWORKS
  • 17. How to Manage Your Social Find 5 minutes every 2 - 3 hours to check for updates. Turn off all notifications. They just keep you from working. If you have an important announcement to make, dedicate more than 30 minutes Don’t mistake social messaging for social networking. I believe social messaging and internal social networking are key - and it will eventually replace email. SOCIAL NETWORKS
  • 18. Sometimes you need to handle things in person. MEETINGS
  • 19. Design a Productive Meeting Agenda: focus on the goal. Always try to give more than you take. Make sure next steps are clear. Do an immediate follow-up. I think of every meeting is a time investment. Make sure you invest it effectively. The best live by this: I had a meeting with a CEO of one of the largest advertising companies in the world and as I was writing the follow-up, he beat me to it just 46 minutes after the meeting. MEETINGS
  • 20. There are some activities you can combine. ACTIVITY COMBO
  • 21. My Favorite Activity Combos TV Shows & Workouts Driving & Phone Calls Flight Time & Emails Walking & Emails ACTIVITY COMBO
  • 22. Find a great Executive Assistant. Someone you can trust! EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT
  • 23. Give your EA full access to your email account and calendar, and allow them to send emails and other messages on your behalf. Set the rules very carefully (e.g. emails must be approved before they’re sent). Make sure your EA has your back. (If you are in a meeting, your EA has to be able to reply urgent things). Stellar EA Workflow EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT
  • 24. Business travel doesn’t have to be a pain. BUSINESS TRAVEL
  • 25. Flying 1 000 000 km in 5 years... ...taught me to squeeze maximum work into my schedule. This means I try to do as much work when I am away from my family as possible and leaves me more time to spend with my dear ones when I am back. BUSINESS TRAVEL
  • 26. Travel Scheduling Tips Prioritize. First take the meetings you really want and need – for those, move your schedule around. International travel time is a problem – if you live in Europe, try and make trips to East Coast, West Coast, and maybe Mexico City in one go. BUSINESS TRAVEL
  • 27. Sometimes, it can feel exhausting. So find time for relax & creativity! CREATIVITY
  • 28. Time for Creativity! Planes and conferences work great for me. Inspirational talks do too, but they don’t give the same kick and vibe. When at home, leave the office by 6 PM at the latest. Be with your family and friends, and start working again after the kids go to bed. It will help clear your head, and more ideas will come in the 8PM+ work session. CREATIVITY
  • 29. I love TV shows but watching those would take up to much of my time. So I watched all the TV shows last year at double play speed. In the end I watched around 600 hours worth of content, saving 300 hours = 28 productive 12 hour work days. Need an Extra Month while Having Fun? CREATIVITY
  • 30. Work-life balance is challenging at times. Having a supporting family and co-workers is crucial. TAKEAWAY
  • 31. Don’t forget your health. Find time to relax and exercise. TAKEAWAY
  • 32. And most importantly, be productive so that you can spend more time with the ones you care about. TAKEAWAY
