People-OnTheGo releases The Perfect 15-Minute Day paperback and Kindle edition, with an accompanying journal workbook and eCourse, to help business professionals manage the demands of the modern workplace.
Today’s business professionals struggle with too many e-mails, too much social media, too many competing and changing priorities, and too many interruptions. They are led to believe that they need to speed up to keep up, and, as a result, they are increasingly scattered, stressed, and unhappy with their work. There is a tremendous need for a new approach to productivity. The Perfect 15-Minute Day Method was developed and released by Pierre Khawand, Founder and CEO of People-OnTheGo, a productivity and leadership training company in San Francisco, California, to enable business professionals to overcome these challenges.
The “Perfect 15-Minute Day Method,” or “Perfect Day Method” (PDM) introduces techniques and tools for managing one’s own attention 15 minutes at a time. Khawand developed the method as a way for users to manage the information overload and constant interruptions of today’s digital workplace. “Your life is a reflection of the next 15 minutes,” Khawand explains. “If you don’t know how to manage the next 15-minutes, you don’t know how to manage your life!"
The Perfect Day Method builds off principles of People-OnTheGo’s “Accomplishing More in Less Time, Less Effort, and Less Stress” program and provides users with more techniques to improve their ability to focus, task-switch, reduce procrastination, overcome perfection, and, consequently, feel in more control and more fulfilled by their work. Users who tested the method reported feeling less scattered and better able to recover from interruptions. One user testified, “The 15-minute focus method [is] a great fit for my work and provides me with techniques for noting and getting back on track after interruptions which are part and parcel of my job.”
Jenny Blake, author of the upcoming book Pivot: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One, said, “In a world saturated with inputs and information, we need something to clear the clutter and focus on what truly matters. Pierre's time-tested tactics will help you do just that, in short powerful bursts that add up to significant accomplishments.”
“The Perfect 15-Minute Day Method enables teams to reach their strategic goals 15 minutes at a time, providing individuals and organizations a competitive advantage in today's information deluge,” indicated Adrian C. Ott, award-winning author of The 24-Hour Customer, and CEO Exponential Edge Inc. “In addition to step-by-step instructions, the book demonstrates how key elements of the method are supported by neuroscientific research.” The Perfect Day Method leverages scientific studies on workplace productivity, communication, and psychology. These studies show how multi-tasking undermines productivity, how digital tools interrupt and shorten-attention spans, and how attention management is more critical than time management.
Khawand also credits influences from the literature of lead thinkers in mindfulness and happiness at work. Alicia R. Maher, M.D., Board Certified Psychiatrist, Subspecialty Board Certified, Psychosomatic Medicine, Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine, Santa Monica, CA, UCLA School of Medicine Clinical Faculty commented as follows: “This book provides an excellent tool to structure one’s time. Unlike most books tackling time management issues, this book goes a step farther by addressing not just the mental, but also emotional factors affecting productivity.”
While traditional time management and goal setting approaches that thrived in the 80's and 90's seem to work well under normal workloads and operating conditions, users are seeking new ways to address their time and information management needs. New solutions are needed to address today's realities including constant interruptions, the need to collaborate virtually with the latest Web technologies, and the need to keep up with social media. Companies like People-OnTheGo are providing resources that can help. The Perfect 15-Minute Day, the Kindle Edition, the Journal workbook and eCourse, are examples of the new and innovative types of cost effective resources that are now available to users.
People-OnTheGo helps individuals, teams, and organizations effectively manage the information overload, develop the leadership skills needed in today’s work environment, and foster creativity and innovation at work and beyond. The People-OnTheGo team delivers in-person and virtual training programs designed to change behaviors and build a culture of productivity and innovation. Pierre Khawand, Founder and CEO of People-OnTheGo, delivers engaging and motivating keynote presentation, bringing breakthrough insights and revolutionary techniques that tackle the core issues that today's workforce is wrestling with.
