The Art of Less Doing

by Ari Meisel


Everyone has responsibilities in their life that challenge their productivity. However, we all have to meet the challenge of being productive, no matter what line of business we are in. To do this, we need to make sure that we carefully balance work with our personal life, in order to be in the best possible place.

When Ari Meisel was 23, his busy lifestyle came to a sudden stop one day when he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Yet slowing down helped Meisel realize what was truly important in life. Now, the author and entrepreneur works to help others ensure that they spend time doing what they want to do and making the most of life – at home and at work. In this course, Meisel shows us how we can take control of our lives through optimizing, automating and outsourcing.

The challenge of productivity that different people face can come from any walk of life. It can be because you simply don't have the time, because it's a matter of money, because you have a health problem, because you have a family, and you have responsibilities.
