225 The One Where Rory Vaden Teaches Us How To Multiply Our Time

2018 Summit Of Greatness – Speakers

Any long-time listener will know that Rory Vadens book “Procrastinate on Purpose” changed my life. I am a BIG fan of his books and talks and I know I’m not his only fan because millions of people watched his TEDx talk titled “Multiply your time by asking 4 questions about the stuff on your to-do list.”

Rory is a professional speaker, author, and entrepreneur who has a childlike curiosity with regard to what makes people successful and influential, which allows him to kick to the curb old thought models and create entirely new ways of looking at how we spend our time. This curiosity and inner drive Rory generously shares with the world allows others to unlock their untapped potential and accomplish what they were put on the earth to do. He is electrifyingly passionate, has high EQ, and is always looking to make things better.

If you feel that there are never enough hours in the day and that you cannot afford to hire someone to take those exhausting tasks off of your plate, then I encourage you to listen to today’s episode with an open mind because, if you act on what he teaches us today, it has the potential to change everything in your life for the better. 


Bottom line: Rory Vaden is going to teach you how to multiply your time. Yes, you read that right, I said “Multiply.”

“You should be willing to spend at least thirty times the amount of time it takes you to do a task once when training someone else to do that task for you.
