Show Notes

Doug McColgin talks about how we feel pressured to network with those in the same background, company, or sector, but great discovery exists in connections with those outside of our work-world. We can leverage our local community to drive breakthrough innovations, but we have to find those who think differently than ourselves. McColgin is actively working to build Indianapolis into an innovation center through his role as Board President at the non-profit Centric and his work at the Carmel-based consultancy, Insight2. He also one of the founders of Indy's Day of Innovation Conference and Indiana Innovation Awards. Is it possible for a mid-market, Midwestern city to inspire, create, and support real innovation from its residents? YES, by creating a liquid environment where ideas are shared among the four pillars of an innovation economy: business, non-profit, academia, and government.

Chris Bailey has been obsessed with the subject of productivity for more than a decade. In this talk, he argues that productivity doesn't have to feel cold and corporate—and that it’s possible to get more done every day without hating the process. Drawing from a decade's worth of research, as well as his yearlong productivity project, Chris argues that the best way to become more productive is to manage our time, attention, and energy better.

E0010 - How To Multiply Your Time | Rory Vaden | TEDxDouglasville (S0001)

You cannot solve today's time management problems with yesterday's time management. What we've noticed is the emergence of a new type of thinker. Somebody that we refer to as a Multiplier. Multipliers use what we call three-dimensional thinking. While most people only make decisions based on urgency and importance, Multipliers are making a third calculation, which is based on significance. And if urgency is how soon does something matter, and importance is how much does it matter, then significance is how long is it going to matter. It's a completely different paradigm. It's adding on to what is there. It's in with the old but it's also in with the new. When we assemble our to-do lists, we ask, “What's the most important thing I can do today?” But that is not how Multipliers think.
