70% of Time Could Be Used Better - How the Best CEOs Get the Most Out of Every Day

70% of Time Could Be Used Better - How the Best CEOs Get the Most Out of Every Day | Business | Scoop.it
The average tech CEO works about 300 days a year, 14 hours a day. That’s 4,200 hours a year. The stats for most other tech leaders and startup employees aren’t too far off. It sounds like a lot of time, but for most, it’s not enough. Nearly 30% of that time gets sunk into email. Another third gets spent in meetings — and studies show that half of those hours are completely wasted.
Looking at the schedule of a typical CEO, a full 70% of that time is sub-optimal, and I’ll back that up with my own experience. Prior to joining First Round as a partner, I served as Co-Founder and CEO for three companies, including LiveOps. Today, I meet with dozens of founders every week, helping them grow their teams and get more productivity out of themselves and the people they work with. They know they should be using every hour to move their companies forward, create great products, close deals and hire the best candidates. Many just can’t find the time. So, how do we get better?
This year, I spent several weeks leading up to our annual CEO Summit catching up with people I know who do a superhuman job at managing their time. My goal was to capture the tools, tips and hacks they use to make every work hour count. Below, I share eight strategies that have worked for them and for me, so we can all stop wasting time and missing out on opportunities.

The global rise of the super library

The global rise of the super library | Business | Scoop.it

Biblioteca Vasconcelos, Seattle Central, Kanazawa Umimirai, Spijkenisse and Birmingham super-libraries explored (Crack open the Borges. Five non-imaginary libraries to ignite flights of fancy.) As the £189m Library of Birmingham opens its doors, it joins a new breed of international "super library". Architecture, design and technology are changing the way the library functions as a space. They have evolved to reflect modern attitudes to books, and how people consume the written word. With The Culture Show architecture critic Tom Dyckhoff, BBC Arts explores five of the world's most impressive public libraries.

A brief review of super libraries around the world in the wake of the opening of the library of Birmingham.

wildswans's curator insight, September 17, 2013 10:34 PM

Absolutely love the "book hill". What fasinates me is how relationships between the outside space and inside space is interpreted. A book opens up a whole new world - therefore the inside is bigger than the ouside. And perhaps, interior physical spaces should also create that kind of expansive feeling, which draws people in.
