Tips & Co. #270 - At the last minute

tete laby.jpg

It’s never good to do things at the last minute. You are powered by urgency and adrenaline.  It's loaded with risk and extra expense. 

It is much more proactive to do things the first minute instead. You are powered by logic and insight. A completely different kind of fuel.

Tips & Co. #255 - It takes 64 seconds

It takes 64 seconds to retrieve your train of thought after an interruption by an e-mail. (T. Jackson, PhD, Loughborough University)

That means if you check your inbox every 5 minutes, you waste 8.5 hours a week.

Try intervals of 45 minutes, and turn off the "new email" pop-up alert.

Tips & Co. #239 - 2 steps when feeling overwhelmed

Tips & Co. #239 - 2 steps when feeling overwhelmed

When feeling overwhelmed, it’s tempting to respond by working harder. But humans are "cyclical" so working more doesn’t just make you miserable, it makes for worse work too.

First, give yourself permission to ease up. Don’t add unnecessary pressure by trying to "motivate yourself", which really just means beating yourself up for feeling bad.

Second, respond correctly by taking productive action and focus on pacing yourself. Re-introduce rhythm to your routine, start small, one action at a time.

Tips & Co. #235 - Short-term gain, long-term pain

When decisions aren’t made, procrastination kicks in, nothing gets done and time is wasted. Avoidance uses up more time than actually making the decision. When something needs to be decided or done, just do it.

Tips & Co. #226 - The never-ending team meetings

Tips & Co. #226 - The never-ending team meetings

Although you may not be in a position to have control of a meeting, you can always have control of your own time. The next time you are asked to attend one of those disorganized, uncontrolled and never-ending meeting, let your superior/manager know that you’ll be there, but that you can only afford so much time. “I’ll be there Mike, but I’ll probably have to leave after a half an hour – I really need to work on that report/proposal/project if we want to respect the deadline. Anything I miss I can pick up from Sylvie later on.” Your superior/manager will need to choose between letting you leave the meeting early, or giving you permission to be late on your report/proposal/project.
