Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:27Welcome, gentlemen, and welcome to our listeners. Today, we are going to be talking about Francis's second edition of his book. Basically, we're going to talk a little bit about the ability for us to be able to do something that I think is really interesting related to Francis's book, perfect time based productivity. So Francis, do you want to tell us a little bit about your book, first of all, and then give us a bit of a preamble in terms of what we were discussing today on this cast?

Francis Wade 0:54Sure. So one of the core ideas which I've sort of run into, by mistake. I always thought there was a perfect kind of big set of behaviors out there then, and you just needed to learn them from somebody who's really smart. And that was my original thought. But I discovered that through the through leading courses that people already came into the programs with habits and practices, they're already using tools, they already have something in place.
