Productivity tricks Schedule every phone
call Keep your mailbox empty Have someone call you once every hour for accountability Read the full list here: http://www.inc.com/john-brandon/40-tips-and-tricks-for-boosting-your- productivity-today.html
In 2008, US employees spent
2.8 hours per week on average dealing with conﬂicts – people that they don’t get along with, dealing with harassment, dealing with bullies, etc. – resulting in $359B of lost productive time or an equivalent of 385 million working days. Irritations and underlying arguments at work are some of the the greatest sources of lost productivity
Unhappy people are 10% less
productive Our level of happiness affects our ability to get through the workload Happy people are 12% more productive
Our Homo sapiens genes react
to any perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival, by raising our level or cortisol in preparation for defending ourselves. And each time, it raises our cortisol level by 10 to 15%, adding up to a major impact, for both your health and your family, friends, business circle… Don’t follow your ‘ﬁght or ﬂight’ instinct
Instead, become more aware of
what triggers your irritation, what makes you angry or causes you stress. Acknowledge that you have control over how you respond to external aggressions, you don’t have to be upset. Practice, practice, and practice again. Emotion control will only come with mental training.
It’s like saying: ‘I don’t
have time to look for my car keys so I’m going to walk.’ And you end up wearing out your shoes, tripping on the sidewalk, and spending more time to reach your destination.
Sit down, take a piece
of paper and jot down the things that you are the most anxious about, the things that are causing you stress. Our brain is more suited for processing than for storing information, so if you want to be able to properly think, eliminate the “popcorn brain”. You can now see opportunities that you didn’t have access to before because you were so busy taking actions.
But self-pity doesn’t lead anywhere
So stop losing your time moaning your fate; accept the setbacks and bounce back. Instead of asking: “why did it happen to me?”, say: “It happened, now what?”
Productivity tip #1: Recognize the
impact of little annoyances Productivity tip #2: Don’t follow your proclivity for “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” Productivity tip #3: Accept that rollercoaster is the very nature of entrepreneurship In conclusion
