In today's digital age, information is coming our way from many fronts and in abundance. Keeping track of it and leveraging it becomes very challenging. Researchers tell us that 15% to 30% of our time is spent searching for information, and that more than half of these searches are not fruitful. They estimate the total cost for the U.S. economy is $98 billion dollars per year, and the opportunity cost is twice as high. As individuals, the cost is even higher because it involves our ability to meet our business and personal goals and our satisfaction at work and in our personal lives.

When it comes to the information overload, there is light at the end of the tunnel! So join us to get not only a glimpse of this light, but to learn some thought-provoking principles and techniques that will get you there.

You'll Learn

During this interactive session you'll learn:

  • Key principles that can help us, help our teams, and our organizations overcome the challenges of information overload
  • How to work efficiently together to achieve the desired results

A quick note for skeptical iPhone users

I was skeptical at first and the thought of reading a book on the iPhone didn't quite appeal to me. I was pretty sure that I won't really do it but wanted to try it anyway as part of my interest in keeping an eye on all sorts of mobile devices and The Accomplishing More With Less Workbook for Kindletechnologies and how well they contribute to our productivity, or NOT. So I tired it, and I am glad I did. I was very quickly sold on the idea, and now this is where many of my books reside, and where waiting time gets transformed into productive and informative time.

What I enjoy about the iPhone Kindle App

  • No additional device to carry and of course no additional $250+ to spend.
  • Not only I don't have an additional device to carry, but also no additional device to recharge and maintain and pull up when I need it. The iPhone is already handy at my fingertips as I check e-mail, calendar, weather, maps, etc.
  • Adding bookmarks, writing notes, highlighting important parts is quick and easy.
  • I can make the font larger and not only enhance readability, but also feel accomplished as I go through these short & sweet iPhone pages and flip from one to the next.

In other words: If you have an iPhone, you have a Kindle.

I am eager to hear your thoughts! and don't forget to check out The Accomplishing More With Less Workbook for Kindle!
