why the lift seminar?

because productivity is the missing discipline in business education.

Business school is the ideal time to develop personal productivity and effectiveness. But other than intros to the most basic tools, business schools offer little practical training in how to get things done.

Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan call lack of execution the "great unaddressed issue in the business world today." 

It is the "cause of most of the disappointments that are mistakenly attributed to other causes."

Leaders today are more stressedmore distracted, and more in need of effective systems than ever before. 

The Lift Seminar is a personal accelerator for those who want to hack their habits, do more, and stress less.

I thought I had learned everything I needed to know to be effective from business school - from marketing to strategy to macroeconomics.

But once I graduated, I spent a lot less time dealing with ‘the big questions’ of company strategy, because I was spending 30-50% of my time just dealing with email, attending meetings, and managing my calendar.

I realized I’d read a lot of cases but hadn’t gotten practical training on how to get stuff done.
