About the event
"I think the most important thing we've learned as we've grown is that we have to prioritize. We talk about it as ruthless prioritization. And by that what we mean is only do the very best of the ideas. Lots of times you have very good ideas. But they're not as good as the most important thing you could be doing. And you have to make the hard choices."
Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook

Ruthless Prioritization is understanding and executing what matters most.
There are so many hours in a day. During this Microlearning, we discuss the importance of ruthless prioritization and how to get into a flow state. Our goal for this microlearning is to explore the concept of ruthless prioritization.
Remember that project where you were “in the zone” frequently and time just flew by? That state of mind is called flow. And it’s where the best ideas and work come from. If you haven’t felt this feeling in a long time, you - like many others - are in danger of having your best creative work behind you. The pandemic has found ourselves stuck in a more demanding cycle of excessive meetings, tasks, and misaligned priorities/expectations. Being stuck in this cycle leads us to the feeling of burnout and never being productive enough. Innovation and creativity can’t happen if we’re always drained and feeling sorry for ourselves. We need to take back ownership of our most non-renewable resource - our time! In this talk by entrepreneur Kenny Nguyen, learn how he guides his time with himself and others to get into flow-state more often.
