How To Perform At Your Peak Every Day: 6 Tips For Working Smart In 2015
1. Don’t check your email .
“Unless you’re in the emergency services field, or the matter of an hour is really critical, the best rule for email is don’t check it first unless your job is literally checking and ‘responding to emails”,Use emails to share information, to schedule, but never use emails to discuss complex issues or give any kind of feedback, particularly negative feedback
2. First Task of the Day-Prioritize your 3 goals of the day
There are so many potential distractions and detailers that can take our attention, we need to be really clear about the most important things. As a rule of thumb, you can remember three ideas relatively well
3. Conserve your Decision making energy at every possible moment
Your ability to make great decisions is a limited resource.This means not thinking when you don’t have to, becoming disciplined about not paying attention to non-urgent tasks unless, or until, it’s truly essential that you do.
4. Save your quality thinking time.
Find the ideal window in your week when you can carve out focus time — to do what I call level three thinking, deeper problem solving and writing and creative work.
5.No multitasking. Single-task as much as you can.
Our brains can only do one conscious thing at a time, and switching between tasks not only wastes energy, but multitasking can leads to decreased performance and more mistakes. And, it saves no time at all
6.Celebrate small wins
We all are so busy and our minds so problem-focused, we tend to rush from one thing to the next and miss the progress we are making.Take time out regularly — weekly or monthly is ideal — to celebrate the wins and the progress you have made on your goals.
Last tip: Make a “Good Things Jar“ and whenever you have something to celebrate, write about it on a slip of paper and put it in the jar, to read them all at the end of the year.
