Marcel outlined nine habits of a super-productive person and set the context of a fast-changing world in which attention management was much more important than time management:

"Th world is changing so fast that time management is no longer the game, it is the question of where you put your attention. The eight-hour workday is a concept that comes from nearly 200 years ago and time management is about trying to make the best of these hours. If you talk about attention management, we don't have eight hours of our full focus, it's whenever you are best able to deliver your best work. Zen-like calm is one ninja trait - having a clear and open mind. "People carry a lot of stuff in their heads. The brain is not capable of carrying all these loose things around and cannot prioritise to bring things up at the right times. This is why your brain will remind you, in the middle of a meeting, to stop at the supermarket for something on the way home, for instance. It's much better to use your brain for creativity and new solutions, or putting together business proposals".
