  1. This has been one of our most highly requested video topics ever, so we partnered with our friends at Cut the Crap Podcast to bring you the facts! Listen to the full podcast and 100+ more episodes here: http://bit.ly/CutTheCrapPodcastM2S

  2. thank you thank you so much !!!! I got verrrryyy delightful when ending up ur video cause it has allowed me to figure out my daily problems that reduce my productivity !! and now after watching you I think I'll be able to fix my troubles and become more successful 😊😊

  3. I watched video and translate it that i can understand clearly and write those golden nuggets to my calender. Thanks a lot of video.😊

  4. to do list part hit me deep, i just checked my TDL, over 200 list in there, lol. might try calendar and list only 4 MIT per day.

  5. Wow. Sickness can be alot of things and not everyone necessarily get healthy again. You're video is just based on common sense.
    It's a shame a lot of people are lacking this attribute.

  6. Poor advice, shallowly distilled.
    1) "Lose money, just get it back. If you get sick, you can always get better again. Time is the most important thing." These two things are not independent. If you get sick, do you not waste time getting back to health? Understanding the importance of time means optimising it to lower the chance of getting sick, or losing money.
    2) "We all have the same amount of time" – should be self-evident that this is false. Just because you don't know how much time you have doesn't mean we all have the same amount of it.
    3) "CEOs don't work from to-do lists, they work from calendars." Very misleading – the thing to rail against is lengthy, rambling to-do lists. But working from calendars just means chunking up your to-do list, and putting it in calendars! To-do lists are good, not bad!
    4) "Follow the pareto principle" is a very strangely-named tip. If the pareto principle tells you that 80% of results come from 20% of work, to 'follow the principle' means to waste 80% of your group's work on 20% of the results. But the tip is actually telling us to increase the percentage of our work that leads to results, so the tip should be entitled "DON'T follow the pareto principle".

  7. I don't agree with TO DO list point. Each and every billion dollar company has daily/weekly/monthly plan…off course u need a calendar..but if u r not focussed on to do list u will never ever succeed..thats a promise. To do lists are like stepping stones DISCIPLINE & CONSISTENCY is the key here.

  8. I'm not sure if the majority of people watching/listening to this video is aware of the GTD system ("Getting Things Done") by David Allen, but To Do Lists are good for capturing things that you want to get done eventually, which helps free up your mind from having to remember things. It does tie into the calendar concept portrayed in this video since the calendar captures the most important items, mentioned in this M.I.T.s (Most Important Tasks).

    I don't care for the idea of not using To Do Lists because there are certainly things I'd like to do that don't have a definitive timeline. This is where the GTD system comes in beautifully.

  9. my sincerest thanks, never better such a whole set of time management it's a great "condensed full mini course", well done

  10. "Once time is gone, it's gone." So true! This is why time is one of the most valuable things we have and we need to figure out how to effectively manage it in business and in life. Cheers!

  11. I make Todo lists everyday and I think it is really the key to why I get everything done. I always do the most important thing first, then everything else.
    Without a list, how am I supposed to remember everything I have to do? Honestly I'd forget about half of those things.
    When something pops up, instead of putting my work down and losing my focus, I quickly write it on the list and do it afterwards. Easy

  12. Well, to-do lists are invaluable and you can't be productive without them. If you are still productive though, then this is zero compared to your actual production capability.

  13. 👁️ luv these Golden nuggets dam sho ain't GMO'S👁️👀😇😉 facts that's organic👁️@15pc 😂😂😂 only tho👁️.

  14. I see a certain risk for a burn out by using every single minute… we need alsp time and days that we "waste" to stay healthy…

  15. We can't all be winners and you're most likely going to be average no amount of motivation can give you the perfect environment for success
    Sometimes I feel like the universe is predetermined

  16. I said no to money… No to high salary.. No to great start up opportonity… Just to be more time with my kids. We have enough money to live… The question is how to create money with the time I have and the things I love. In the morning I am with my kids. Being friendly having friends is very important for health. If your success is mainly about making more influence world wide you are right…After being a soldier my perception in life has changed… Time with family and my kids can never be replaced. But I surely take into concideration your tips here! Thank you!

  17. TIME WITH THE PEOPLE WE LOVE AND CARE FOR IS ALSO IMPORTANT, DON'T SAY NO TO THEM UNLESS IT REALLY CAN WAIT!
    People won't only remember you for your achievements, but more for how you make them feel. How do your kids feel about you, your wife, mother, father, brother, best friend, etc. How do you make them feel. Not so important? ~ Well, at least you paid the rent and that car payment.
    Say no to your wife, your kids, your parents and say no to your friends, and someday you will be the richest man in the graveyard. One hour with your kid means more than a week of business success, well it should. When you are dying and you have somewhere between 1 hr to 1 week to live, are you going to regret not spending enough time at the office. Try making it through 2 hours of knowing you will never, ever see or hear or know about the people you love and care about. No more nobody in your life, try two hours of facing a reality like that, use your imagination. No emoticons, no email or messaging, no voice saying hello, no more seeing their smiles, hearing their laughter or eye contact, never ever again. You will immediately realize that nothing really matters more than contact with and the love of family and true friends. Without them your life becomes hell on earth and everything that matters to you in your heart dies a slow and painful death until you have nothing but a void of dead space in your heart. Right now you have the opposite, your heart is warm with hope and promise for more joy and happiness, but don't take it for granted. Any happiness and fulfillment we have today is because we have friends, a wife or husband and or family. We have people that know who we are, who laugh and cry with us. Don't wait until it is too late to appreciate and have gratitude for the good and wonderful people in your life. A simple apology, I love you, I miss you will mend a broken heart. They want to hear it from you, who doesn't. The time thing is right, once that time is gone, you can not get it back. What you would give for one hour of joy and happiness when it is too late and all opportunities are lost, tells all.

  20. Excuse me but my "cognitive best" is at night, not in the morning. So any suggestion this video says to do first thing in the morning would not work for me. How about making a video for night owls too? We are all zombies during the first part of the day, the BAMMM, brain is in high gear approaching midnight. What does this comment have to do with TO-DO-LISTS? Absolutely nothing. Just commenting on one statement here.

  21. "Say no to everything that doesn't support your immediate goals" ..The very first sentence of this video…..and a REALLLLLY BAD ADVICE.

  22. why do people want to be successfull so badly? I enjoy beeing a loser. Im getting bald, no girl, small appartment. I dont give a shit I couldnt be happier..

  23. I like to say that To-do list have there place, DAILY! Use calendar but on that day your Do-List is all the items on that calendar day. 🙂

  24. Excellent video. The last section about productivity and time really made sense since we only have much time on this planet to be productive and successful. Mix that with a healthy diet, proper sleep schedule, and regular exercise and you can't be beat! Thanks for sharing!

  25. point 16, stop watching motivational and other videos the whole day and actually DO something with your life…

  26. My to do list kept me focused and on track so I don’t agree with that. Ask other millionaires they use a to do list

  27. Todo lists are great those billionaires have set days for everything so they use a calendar, Students didn't have meetings. That's why for us todo List is way better

  28. those people put so much emphasis on time because they dot have any loll just like id talk about water alot if i had none xD

  29. Its outdated. All this is about 2nd and 3rd generations of time management which is quite efficient and productive without the effectiveness to live happy interdependent life.So please learn the 4th generation of time management, where people are more important than things, relationship is more important than efficiency and where we manage our roles and goals rather than managing time. its not the time we have to manage, its about managing our self, our roles and our goals- short and long.

  30. please make the necessary references or citations. when you mentioned pomodoro technique, please mention doc barbara oakley 🙂

  31. I used to be so stressed of time. I was living in a high rush and when a partner came into my life it made me restless and I screwed up my priorities for myself. Too much srress i carried a huge boulder on my legg and try to reach the finish line. I broke my own back no time feel j havd given up . The loss was to bigg but im trying to fight back .. big hurdles to overcome

  32. For me personally i love my to do list i get up no later thab 5am take time to do one, also writing down a few personal goals for the day. I suffer from anxiety and i have found for me a "to do list" helps keep my anxiety down, crossing out what i have written down on my list gives me some sense of achievement and accomplishment aswell, that is just my experience. I have been doing it for three years now. 😊

  33. So our first two hours of our day are the most cognitively powerful and yet you're telling us to spend the first hour not working? hm…..seems like contradicting advice here.

  34. No one can manage time. Time is not a resource you have any control over. You manage your work, your desires, yourself.

  35. Working 20 hrs a day 7 days a week? I don’t care how much you make.
    You stress the importance of time, but you spend all of it pursuing $$$$$. Is that the correct pursuit? You can make a lot of money selling weapons and dismantling democracy, but that is not the highest.

  36. Another build-perfect-slaves video xD Some ppl is happy doing this, but most not. Never feel guilty to choose what makes u happy 🙂 Unless you do psycho things, like some on this video lol

  37. its surprising that after 2008 people continue telling us how honest and hard working "successful" people are

  38. I should definitely touch everything once, not multiple times 🙂 13)" If you can do a task in less than 5 mins , do it immediately".
