Make Time

What’s the one critical thing you need to get done today? When John Zeratsky worked at Google with his co-author Jake Knapp, they noticed they had trouble prioritizing what needed to get done. Together, they wrote the book Make Time, which details tactics you can use to structure your day for maximum productivity. Discover how to create and protect the most important action item in your day, how to budget your energy when you’re swamped, and the importance of reflection.


“We as individuals, we can’t wait for these tech companies to give us our time back.” Practical advice from @jazer about #productivity and protecting your time



Bio: John Zeratsky has written for the Wall Street Journal, Time, Harvard Business Review, Wired, Fast Company, and many more publications. For nearly fifteen years, he was a designer at technology companies, including YouTube and Google Ventures. Originally from Wisconsin, John and his wife now live aboard their sailboat, “Pineapple.”
