Introducing Productivity

    Ann Catherine Dizon Perezцитує2 роки тому
    You can’t manage time. There’s no point trying. What you can manage is your attention, and it’s an even more subtle skill to learn.

    Indeed, a focus on one thing at a time is a wonderful way to avoid feeling disorientated, overwhelmed and stressed.

    So, we’d rather do anything else in the world than do the thing that matters, precisely because it’s the thing that matters

    You can’t manage time but you can manage attention.
    Unlike time, attention isn’t a fixed resource, and an hour of proactive attention is far more valuable than an hour of inactive attention.
    It’s important to think about the quality of our attention and aim for Zen-like calm: that state where we’re interacting only with the thing in front

    what ‘improving productivity’ is: good habits, skills and behaviours.

    Change can come from trying new things, but can also come from revisiting, refreshing or reinforcing good habits.

    Time might be spent, but attention still needs to be paid.

    Your attention is a more limited resource than your time

    We live in a technological age where rapidly changing priorities are no longer a distraction but actually part of what we have to manage.

    Far from the opposite of being productive, being kinder to yourself is integral to keeping the show on the road and to you continuing to feel great and perform well in your role.

    we resist things that are scary; we resist things that are difficult; and we resist things that are boring or uninteresting.

    Think about what’s on your mind. All those things you have to do or look into or figure out. Grab a stack of paper and a pen and write down everything you can think of. Give yourself about half an hour for this. Don’t skip anything. You’ll thank me later.

    Trying to remember everything you need to do, or worse still, not knowing everything you need to do, is a sure route to inefficiency and stress.

    Batching is a technique to reduce this set-up time and help you to stay in the zone. The idea is simple: store up similar tasks into batches, so that you do lots of them less often rather than more regularly as individual tasks.

    Most of us will have no more than two to three hours of proactive attention in a day

    could be as simple as leaving the office on time every day this week, booking your next holiday, treating yourself to a relaxing, full-hour lunch break, having a massage or even just vowing to stop checking your emails when you’re not in the office.

    Most people experience this fleetingly, usually in moments where you’re up against a deadline and that deadline means you forget your hunger, you forget the other 10,000 things you could be doing at that moment and you’re 100 per cent engaged in the work. Or you experience it because you’re in a crisis and there’s one thing that’s so big it commands all of your attention. But it is possible to reach this level of Zen-like calm regularly in your work – you just need to make some effort eliminating distractions

    yet an hour spent working on a complex project can throw up so many other things that can try to grab your attention, with all the processes, risks and stakeholders to manage and all the ideas and possibilities you may have for the project. Likewise, you may sit down to what you think will be an hour of answering useful emails, only to be rocked off track by other people’s priorities popping up in your inbox
