Two Lists You Should Look at Every Morning

Two Lists You Should Look at Every Morning The speed with which information hurtles towards us is unavoidable, and it's getting worse. But trying to catch up is counterproductive. Strategic advisor Peter Bregman explains how two simple lists can help us organize what's important. I was late for my meeting with the CEO of a technology company and I was emailing him from my iPhone as I walked onto the elevator in his company's office building. I stayed focused on the screen as I rode to the sixth floor. I was still typing with my thumbs when the elevator doors opened and I walked out without looking up.

What Successful People Do With The First Hour Of Their Work Day Remember when you used to have a period at the beginning of every day to think about your schedule, catch up with friends, maybe knock out a few tasks? It was called home room, and it went away after high school. But many successful people schedule themselves a kind of grown-up home room every day.

7 Things Highly Productive People Do

You probably don’t want to admit it but you love distractions. In fact, just like monkeys, you get a shot of dopamine every time something pulls you in another direction. Why do you think you check your email so much? 7 Things Highly Productive People Do
Time management Time management is the act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity. It is a meta-activity with the goal to maximize the overall benefit of a set of other activities within the boundary condition of a limited amount of time. Time management may be aided by a range of skills, tools, and techniques used to manage time when accomplishing specific tasks, projects, and goals complying with a due date. Initially, time management referred to just business or work activities, but eventually the term broadened to include personal activities as well. A time management system is a designed combination of processes, tools, techniques, and methods. Time management is usually a necessity in any project development as it determines the project completion time and scope.

Knowledge Management

Knowledge management (KM) is the process of capturing, developing, sharing, and effectively using organisational knowledge.[1] It refers to a multi-disciplined approach to achieving organisational objectives by making the best use of knowledge.[2] An established discipline since 1991 (see Nonaka 1991), KM includes courses taught in the fields of business administration, information systems, management, and library and information sciences (Alavi & Leidner 1999).[3][4] More recently, other fields have started contributing to KM research; these include information and media, computer science, public health, and public policy.[5] Columbia University and Kent State University offer dedicated Master of Science degrees in Knowledge Management.[6][7] Knowledge Management
Advertisement For too many projects, there comes a time when every action taken, every decision and sacrifice made, is spurred on by pressure to finish. Tempers seem to shrink along with the available days, talk about “high standards” gives way to “good enough,” and people realize that deadlines are aptly named. During the last-minute crunch, someone may well wonder, how did it come to this? Passing The Holy Milestone: How To Meet Deadlines Passing The Holy Milestone: How To Meet Deadlines

You: The Best Guru EVER | FrankKern.com You: The Best Guru EVER | FrankKern.com A few weeks ago, I was on the porch knocking back a Modelo Especial working and I noticed one of my friends walking up to the front door. So I eased on down the steps, let him in, and invited him to up to the porch to take in the scenery with me. He readily agreed so I grabbed us both a couple of Mexico’s finest beers and we took our seats. But something was wrong. My (normally laid back) buddy was all weirded out.
While burying yourself in the stacks at the library is one way to get some serious research done, with today’s technology you can do quite a bit of useful searching before you ever set foot inside a library. Undergraduates and grad students alike will appreciate the usefulness of these search engines that allow them to find books, journal articles and even primary source material for whatever kind of research they’re working on and that return only serious, academic results so time isn’t wasted on unprofessional resources.

15 Awesome Time Management Tools and Apps

15 Awesome Time Management Tools and Apps As promised in my previous post regarding time management, here I am with a list of cool tools that can help you manage your time effectively and become more productive in your work.

▶ How To Hack Your To-Do List
The Hacked-Together Productivity Tool I Can't Live Without: My Master Planner I have evolved a similar system. I kept forgetting things so I got a paper spiral bound log book and made an entry at the beginning of each day. I copied undone TODOs from yesterday to today. I made a note of EVERYTHING that happened during the day. I drew a line down the left and used the left margin for the PROJECT (which for me usually means a billable client).
I’ve discussed at length how you should get rid of your to do list immediately and the harmful effects of the Zeigarnik Effect which is that voice in our subconscious that nags at us to finish the unfinished. People often ask me how they should prioritize the things they do because they look at their list of tasks and it’s a big mess. Every time they get something done they have to add two more things to the list. Don’t Try To Prioritize, Work On Your Timing
