Episode #183: Get More Done in 12 Weeks Than Others Do in 12 Months

Feat. The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran

I read, like, a lot. And though many of the books I read (and the authors who write them) wind up being featured on the podcast, there are plenty that don’t (and not because they’re not worthy).

Sometimes it just comes down to scheduling or any other number of issues. Suffice it to say there are plenty of authors I’d love to interview that haven’t yet made it on. But that shouldn’t mean we can’t dive into and discuss their latest book, right?

12 Week Year by Brian Moran

The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran and Michael Lennington is just such a book. It was released in 2013. Like Deep Work, another book I read earlier this year, it has revolutionized how I work. I think it can do the same for you.

In today’s episode, I share some of the key insights and main ideas from the book, as well as a couple of other episodes that compliment this one quite nicely (see below for links).

In today’s episode, I discuss:

  • The argument for a 12 week year opposed to the typical annualized way of thinking
  • Executing the system
  • Installing process control
  • …and much more!
