Here are just a few of the hacks:
“Want to work smarter in 2014? Try talking to people. Not tweeting them or texting them but good, old-fashioned conversation.” — T. Boone Pickens, Founder, Chairman and CEO at BP Capital
“Ultimately, the way I hack is by creating a tremendous team of people around me. I’m a human hacker.” — Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO Co-Founder of Vayner Media
“Look at your emails in bursts, don’t constantly check them all day or you will never get anything done. Manage your mobile, don’t let it manage you. And remember to look after your body – including your eyes! You’ll soon see you get lots more done, feel healthier and can read all about it.” — Richard Branson, Founder at Virgin Group
“You will never, ever catch me multitasking. I think people who boast about their ability to simultaneously juggle multiple projects or chores are fooling themselves if they think they are operating at peak productivity. I measure productivity not simply by the clock, but the quality of the work. Multitasking is the ruination of quality.” — Suze Orman, television host, author, motivational speaker, producer
