He earned over $250,000 while in college selling magazine subscriptions during his summer breaks. In his 20’s he co-founded Nashville, Tennessee- based Southwestern Consulting. And, again he’s done something special.
Yes, leave it to 30-something uber-successful Rory Vaden to take a subject like Time Management and turn it on its head. Actually, he equips even the most time-challenged person to have more confidence in their ability to get the significant things done, and done right. More so, without sacrificing peace of mind and happiness.
In today’s world of technology, we find ourselves being pulled in more and more directions with less and less time to do that which we need do and do well. That kind of thinking keeps us stuck. As Rory says, “Creating the next level of results requires the next level of thinking.”
In my chat with Rory earlier this year regarding his New York Times Bestseller, Take the Stairs, we learned his very effective principles for self-discipline.
His new book is Procrastinate on Purpose: Five Permissions to Multiply Your Time. While the title is obviously counter-intuitive, the methodology he espouses — and learned/systematized due to his own needs — is brilliant and right on the mark.
In this chat, Rory will share wisdom from his terrific new book, including:
- The main difference in thought processes between ultra-successful people… and everyone else.
- The biggest killer of getting the right things done.
- What you thought you knew about time that just isn’t so.
- Multiplying your time.
- The all-important Focus Funnel.
- The 5 Permissions that will turn you into a master of time rather than a victim of it.
Yep, my inspiring young friend, Rory, did it again with this book and shares some terrific wisdom here. Enjoy!
Remember, the goal is not necessarily to fit more in! The goal is to produce more results.
Will you begin to take the steps toward becoming that Time Multiplier that you now know you can be?

Wow! great interview.
I am looking forward to picking up the book. I am challenged and inspired to change the way I think about my time, on a much deeper level. Thank you!
Sarena: Thank you for your kind feedback. I’m so glad you enjoyed the interview. And, yes, he did a brilliant job of reframing the whole time issue and providing a way to make it work for us…rather than the other way around. 🙂
