Time & Attention Presentation: "Who Moved My Brain?"
Merlin Mann | Aug 14 2008
Who Moved My Brain? Revaluing Time & Attention (slideshare.net)
As I've been going over my slides for the Time & Attention talk, I realized I hadn't shared how the material has evolved since it premiered at Macworld in January. Which is to say, "Kind of a lot." So, I've posted the updated deck.
Of course, the irony of making cool, unbulleted slides is that the decks you create won't make a lick of sense without the accompanying audio and -- you know -- human presence. So, I've made a special version of this for you to view online, adding slide notes at the bottom that can help give you the flavor for what's happening as I wave my hands around on-stage like a huge dork.
I'm proud of this work, and I really hope you find it useful. The 5th to the last slide makes me teary. Partly because I really do believe this stuff is important. It's about more than email and "productivity." It comes down to how you decide to spend your life and, on some level, what kind of human being you want to be.
And, yes, here's the minor pimp (I mean, it is what I do for a living). You can hire me to deliver this talk to the time- and attention-addled people you work with. Drop a note if you have an upcoming event where you think this might be a good fit. And, yeah, unless I know you really well or your company is giant, awesome, and MUNI-accessible: it costs money. Yep. So. You know. Serious inquiries only, and what have you.
See you soon, GoDaddy! I crave your hell-like climate right now.
