Richard Branson talks about the standing and walking meetings, labelling it as one of his “favorite” tricks.

This allows him to focus his early day energy in tasks that are “real work”, and get them out of the way quickly.

By staying organized and prioritizing the important stuff.

Every morning when he gets up, the first thing Marcus Lemonis does is, he writes down the five most important things that he wants to get done on that particular day.  He calls it “My knockout list”.

This allows him to channel his time and efforts towards getting the most important things done for the day, and if there is any time left he then focuses on the secondary.
