The Management Of Time provides insights and exercises to help you see yourself and others in an exchange of energy. You are shown how to recognize the direction and intensity of your own and others’ energy. This insight teaches you to amplify positive outcomes, eliminate waste and store or redirect energy – more for less.
The more for less idea extends into communications practices. McCay suggests methods of diagramming and using analogy to quickly convey your ideas. Integrating the processes of energy flow, the mind and imagination, and human biology enables the maximum engagement and stimulation of the audience.
Motivation is explained in relationship to value. Value is a corollary to participation; therefore, individual participation relates directly to the commitment and motivation a worker gives to an idea. McCay’s approach calls for an organizational systems and personnel management style that places an absolute respect on the knowledge of the individual. Methods are suggested to bring out the best with less supervision by optimizing everyone’s involvement.
Growth and continuous learning, according to McCay, are a must, but here the key is not mass consumption. Selectivity, mixed with broad exploration, are recommended for increased creativity and innovation. A regular workout to stretch your mind helps you to achieve more with less effort.
