Less Doing – Optimize, Automate, and Outsource

[youtube id=”zUdqIhS0lXI” width=”620″ height=”360″]

lessdoing.com started in early 2011 as a blog of productivity hacks. It quickly developed into a framework for optimizing, automating, and outsourcing everything in people’s personal and professional lives. The blog covers everything from email management to fitness and helps make everything in life easier. I encourage you to check out the blog and subscribe to the RSS FeedNewsletter, and Podcast.

    I started working with Ari in early 2012 when I was trying to overcome some health issues and generally find balance between physical and mental health. Ari provided excellent guidance on how I might “hack” my body to find out ways to achieve better health through diet and exercise. Once the physical and emotional limitations were better defined, Ari set to work creating a…more

    Ari simply helped me increase my personal productivity at work and in life with perhaps 100% or more. I strongly recommend everyone to explore his principles, concepts and software recommendations, and to use him as coach for just a few hours to make it happen.

    Ari is a fantastic coach who helped me with everything from weight loss and sleep optimization to finding out how to outsource the things in my life that I thought were not able to be outsourced. I would highly recommend Ari to anyone who needs help achieving their goals.

    Ari is a master at efficiency. Typically we don’t even know…what we don’t know. Ari serves as a bridge to valuable services that his clients don’t know about. He has helped me short cut so many learning curves around social media, web development and staffing support. In addition Ari is a great resource for all things health related. This kind of rounded experience is…more

    Ari helped me to reach a personal goal within three months of working with him. He was a great motivator and his continuous positive reinforcement really helped out in times of need. I would definitely recommend him to help you out in an aspect of your life that you’re looking to improve upon.

    Ari’s life story and his passion for helping others is both inspirational and heartwarming. Himself having overcome seemingling insurmountable odds against a desease deemed incurable, Ari literally took the challenge to BEAT the desease (and WON that challenge) and is today one of the most renowned and sought after speakers, whose primary focus is helping others streamline…more

    As a one man operation the single greatest asset I have is the time that can be dedicated towards my clients. Ari has helped me streamline the daily interruptions that pull me away from my to-do list and be more effective with the additional time I do have. He’s a student of efficiency and has an obvious love for helping others focus on what’s important.

“Might be the most efficient, effective hour of learning ever! If you want to be more productive (which less face it, we all do to some degree) but don’t have the time or capacity time to work out how – go to this class. Go on. Just do it.” – Shannon

“I’ve never been a part of a class that covered so much material so completely and efficiently. Ari covered everything from managing email overflow to the wonder of virtual assistants to fitness and wellness, offering free and cheap cloud-based solutions at every stop along the way. This class is absolutely worth the ticket.” – Kevin

“I highly recommend this class. Ari has a deep knowledge of digital tools and methodologies that allow you to accomplish more in less time. I learned a tremendous number of things that I plan on implementing in my daily routine – from clever strategies for things we know we should be already using (email filters) to new tools and services that allow others to accomplish things for you (virtual assistants). I always had an inkling that technology could help me be more organized and efficient, if I just knew what tools to use and how to use them. It can, and Ari is an inspiring example of how to get there. ” – Michael

“Ari is the James Bond of productivity. If your life doesn’t become easier and more productive after taking this class, you weren’t listening. ”
– Clay

    Just watched you on Fox.  The art of doing less caught my attention immediately.  Unfortunately I fall under the art of doing everything.  Just can’t sit still.  I just had a heart transplant on October 13, 2012 and I constantly have to remind myself to relax to stop doing so much.  Has not happened yet.  I do so much and most of the time is not even appreciated.  HELP!!!!   I observe my family and wish I can be like them.  They don’t have a care in the world.
