If you’re like us, then you’ve said something like “I wish I had more time” at least once. Or like 1000 times. Well, that’s exactly what we learned how to do with author Jake Knapp in our recent Spawned with Kristen and Liz podcast episode. He chatted with us about his new book Make Time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day, where he helps folks like us figure how to create more time by focusing on the stuff that really matters.

Hence the name of the book.

He’s got so many amazing tips, tricks, and thoughtful tidbits, many of which we’re already implementing in our own lives. We strongly suggest listening right now, but hey, if you can’t, be sure you’re subscribed to our Spawned podcast on iTunes so you never miss an episode.

More about Make Time  

Make Time by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky

Lots of what we spoke with Jake about on our podcast can be found in his new book, Make Time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day. If you need to renegotiate your relationship with technology, find more satisfaction and joy in your life, or just need some simple strategies to help you accomplish more of the important things, this is for you. Visit his website, check out his own podcast, and say “hi” on Twitter, but he’s rarely there because, well, he’s focusing on what matters every day. Very on brand, Jake!
