Thursday, November 14th, LadyDrinks hosted efficiency coach Ari Meisel for a workshop at UPS New York headquarters. He taught us hacks for creating a more effective to-do list, apps for automating processes, and services to outsource tasks to.
Special thanks to LadyDrinks member Priyanka Patel, Founder of Rent Something Silk for these notes.
Ari’s motto is Optimize, Automate, Outsource:
He stated that everyone has 90 min per day of peak time – where you can complete tasks in a focused, efficient manner. This is the time you should try to avoid meetings, chit chatting, etc and get what you need to get done. Everyone’s can be different and if you don’t know what yours is, download this free app “Less Doing Peak time” which has to tap on a button for 10 seconds at various times of the day (you can do this for a few days) and it will suggest your Peak time. Usually it doesn’t change day to day.
