How do I define “performance”?

If you ask me, the good working definition will be like this:

Now, I think some people-especially.

One of these people is my Internet friend (I do not own a fur coat to visit him in Canada) Chris Bailey, who was a guest on the two most popular episodes of CIG Podcasts:

Chris is a fantastic writer, and since I opened his blog, he has shown me useful methods of productivity.

A few months ago, it leveled out because of simple cutting and published a book called.

This book essentially breaks all the basic aspects of labor productivity, including time management, focus and attention, delay, sleep, caffeine, Internet distractions, and more. This is a fairly complete overview of the subject, and, as a result, I found it very useful for reading-even as someone who has experimented with my own product since I started college …

I finished reading the book last week – it was the seventh book in my current task.

The full name of Chris’s book.

Simply put, performance is your management product:

All three elements are equally important, and I believe that the fact should be clearly stated, since time management usually gets the most attention when discussing performance ..

For most people living 50 years ago, time management is indeed.

Today, most of us switched to work that is much more complicated. In addition, much more is needed.

In fact, we are all juggling limited resources, and we need to ensure that we optimize our procedures and behavior in order to have a tendency to do everything. This is a high-level lesson, but you can “apply” it, just premeditated about all three elements when you try to determine the source of the performance problem ..

In addition, thinking about productivity as a product of time, energy, and attention can help you avoid a trap of belief in this.

Deceleration is a complex subject, as it is a complex term for a complex war between your brain.

However, the researchers of the delay identified six specific.

  • Unstructured or ambiguous.
  • Lack of personal meaning.
  • Missing in awards (for example, fun or reward).
  • The more triggers you will have, the more you will see it …

    Knowing about these triggers is useful because you can use them to determine exactly why you are delaying a specific task. Using this information, you can develop solutions to facilitate access to …

    For example, a boring task can be more fun if you want to want you to want (maybe a coffee shop, or the intestinal trash of a local landfill-which is the guy you handed over on the street vow no longer used) ..

    Similarly, an unstructured, unstructured task can be improved if you break it into smaller, well-defined steps and place these steps in the correct order (see para.

    Since energy-level management is as important as time management, it is useful to know at what time of day energy levels are the highest. If you know it, you can plan the tasks of your day to make sure that the most complex, intense brain activity during this period …

    In the book, Chris calls it mine.

    Chris discovered this in two different experiments. First, he decided to check this old age with our good friend Ben Franklin:

    “It’s early to sleep, it’s early to get up, it makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

    To that end, he began to wake up at 5:30 every day to see if he would be an early riser to help him become more productive.

    Instead, he was one of the few experiments he had decided to retire early; not only did he wake up early.

    This is consistent with the research I cited in my video.

    After a failed early awakening experiment, Chris found out he had, so he spent a couple of weeks tracking his energy levels using a 1-10 scale. He then learned that he had the most energy for 10 hours. 17 hours 00 min and 17 hours. -8 p.m.These periods of time have since become.

    You may not have the same level of control over your daily schedule as Chris, but it would still be useful to know when your BPT will, and then take steps to synchronize it with your most difficult work ..

    “I’ll have plenty of time to do it in a couple of weeks.“How many times have you agreed to too many commitments in the future or do you slow down on the project, thinking you’ll have time to do that later? Most of us are guilty of these crimes against our future self-and, as it turns out, there are.

    To put it in simple terms, we think about our future personality almost exactly the same way we think.

    Hal Hershfield, a UCLA psychologist, discovered this by setting up research subjects to describe itself, both now and 10 years in the future, while their brains were being scanned by fMRI machines. They were also asked to talk about other people …

    After analyzing the results.

    To counter this, Chris used an application called.

    This last lesson is actually from a book that Chris read at the beginning of his own performance study. At

    The “Waiting” list is a place to keep track of everything that requires action from other people before you can complete it or continue working on it. This may include things like:.

  • The packages you’re waiting for.
  • People owe you money.
  • The e-mail responses you are expecting.
  • Separating these elements into your own list, you will ensure that they do not fall through the cracks, without allowing them to cluttered your more action-oriented task lists. This is a good idea-just remember this regularly.

    On the whole, I enjoyed reading this book and found it quite useful. Unlike other performance books, Chris does not recommend a specific system or set of tools here. It cannot build the system and write it to you (unlike the GTD) ..

    Rather, his book decides on individual performance topics, breaks them up, and provides solutions based on Chris’s experiments or expert studies. This is the approach I like, because I am not a man who usually has a long time with no tool. I like to switch to my systems regularly to keep things fresh …

    In addition, each chapter ends with a mission, a vocation to help you do what you have just learned in action. Personally, I have not stopped reading to make calls-but I think they can be useful to many people ..
