In my book, I give a number of tips. Tips I found in Priya Parker's book, The Art of Gathering. But also by advocating more asynchronous collaboration.


Yesterday, during a conversation with a client, another idea came up: it is the lack of ownership and proactivity that causes this proliferation of meetings and mails.


The nail on the head.

Readiness to define our high-value activities.

Asynchronous collaboration.

Proactivity in scheduling focustime.

Belief in an internal locus of control.


All of them are intertwined. All of them are critical success factors to move towards a world with more well-being, less distractions and more productivity.


Let’s set sail together to find that new, healthy balance.
