For busy people, the idea of spending time getting better at whatever you do can often conflict with just getting the job done. If you run a small business, manage a home, or manage a team of people - whatever you do, it can be difficult to justify spending even more precious time on getting better, or just getting time to yourself. But it doesn't have to be that way. In fact, spending time sharpening the saw can reduce the time it takes you to cut down the tree. This podcast takes that principle and shows you how to be intentional about what you do, apply a little structure, and actually spend less time - but get more done.
