  • Low hanging fruit, and why that can be a bad thing.
  • The Truths, and Jay shares a quick, effective way to approach your to-do list.
  • The Focusing Question: “What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”

  • Extraordinary results – living with purpose, living by priority, and living for productivity.
