Some food for thought:

Well, I don’t think that CRIMPing qualifies as “procrastinating on purpose” - at least as Rory Vaden sees it. :-)
Interesting video, though.

I was thinking more of his reference to automation; to me, CRIMPing is the search for tools that, among other things, help us automate certain aspects of the information management process, which represents a substantial part of a knowledge worker’s time.

What is the crux of his argument (sorry, haven’t got the time to watch the whole thing, but if you have, would appreciate your summary of the key takeaway)? Cheers.

The crux of his argument is…

You can’t manage time, you can only manage yourself. But you can “multiply your time by giving yourself emotional permission to spend time on things today that will give you more time tomorrow.”

This is what he calls the third dimension of time management. The first two are: Urgency and Importance. The third is Significance, which he defines as how long will what you do last? As an example, he uses setting up online bill paying. It may be hard to say I need to spend two hours setting this up, but if you do it, you’ll save yourself a half an hour a month and within four months you’ve recouped your time investment and you will then start “multiplying your time.”

There is no doubt something valuable to what he is saying, but I’m not sure it is the game changer he wants us to believe it is. I suspect most people factor in “significance” when they are evaluating “importance.” But a good reminder.
