The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity®

We’ve cracked the code to expert focus and life-changing productivity.


Information overload is sabotaging our productivity.

Do you feel constantly busy, but the needle never seems to move?  Anxious and overwhelmed the minute you hit the start button? The barrage of information coming at us, coupled with the demands of our careers, is overwhelming. The sheer volume of information threatens our ability to think clearly and make wise decisions about what’s important. There are three key challenges we must address to stay productive.


Decision Overload

We used to make only a few high-value decisions each day, but with unlimited information and instant communication, we’re now forced to make decisions all day long. We don’t stop to consider the value of the decisions, we just react. And the most important decisions pass us by.

Attention is Under Attack

The average office worker gets only three minutes of work time before being distracted. Our brains are wired for distraction, and the ability to think is overwritten by the need to react. We’ve moved from the age of physical labor to mental labor. And now, just as we need our minds the most, our ability to think is under attack.

Low Energy Crisis

The pressure to make good decisions while our attention is under attack, is exhausting. We come to work burned out and disengaged. We’re not able to give our best, even though we want to. 


It’s not about getting everything done, it’s about getting the right things done without burning out. Time management alone isn’t enough. You must achieve decision management, attention management, and energy management to accomplish your goals in business and in your personal life.


Without them, we’ll continue to be buried alive.

The 5 Choices provides new, exciting, and above all, practical insights that can help you cope with your overwhelming workload and realize your full potential, in and out of work.”
