Learning vs Doing: What's More Important?  

How many of us spend a lot of time consuming content but less time implementing? I’m a huge advocate of education (I’ve built my whole business around it) however no amount of learning will build your business for you if you don’t take steps to actually action what you learn. Knowledge without implementation is just unrealised potential.

In an ideal world we would be a 10 out of 10 in every area of our life - our health, our relationships, our career, our spirituality - would all on par and thriving. However this ideal does not mirror the reality of entrepreneurship. If this is what you're aiming for then chances are you will set yourself up for failure. Entrepreneurship is a path that requires sacrifice - accept it and embrace it.

How Do You Manage Your Time?  

The number one factor that will determine how effective and productive you are is this: how much time you can spend uninterrupted on one particular task. Do the thinking, get clear on your highest and best use, and reclaim your time. This will enable you not only to be incredibly effective but also to rejuvenate and re-energise. Taking control of your schedule and your environment enables you to be more present. When you are engaged in work, be fully engaged. When you are not, do your best to fully disengage. Wherever you are, be there. The pauses re-energise you, make you more whole and fulfilled, and therefore make you more effective when you do decide to return to the work. Being effective, and being able to sustain that effectiveness, is how you will build your legacy.

We take these questions: Hi Jack, what are the most important skills to develop to be a successful CEO?

You feature many prominent leaders in your magazine, in your opinion who is the greatest leader of our time and why? What ‘s your biggest weakness?

In Unwritten you speak of The Entourage having an informal culture that lends itself to innovation and how it enables your high-performance team.
