Making Time for What Matters

A special sequence of lessons for students of Consuming Happiness

Hey everybody!

It’s my pleasure to share Make Time with you. These lessons are based on content from The Highlight Course, which is a 4-week program run by me and my coauthor Jake Knapp. There might be a few places in the videos where we say “The Highlight Course” or “the course,” but hopefully it’s not too confusing.

We created the Make Time framework because we struggled to focus our time and energy on the things that mattered to us. Working in the tech industry, we were inundated by new information, emails, meetings, chats, and a million other distractions. We tried doing more by focusing on productivity optimization, but it only made the problem worse—we got really good at reacting to everyone else’s priorities.

With all the crazy changes that Covid brought to our lives, it’s more important than ever to find a system or framework for managing your time and energy. I hope Make Time helps you focus on what matters every day.
