You know how many minor league baseball players worked their tails off?
A lot of them, but at the end of the day, can you hit? Can you get guys out?
The same is true for your work.
Results > Hard work.
Honestly, the #1 way to get more done is to avoid meetings like the plague.
Most of your organization's meetings are a complete waste of time.
> Unnecessary e-mails
> Tasks that seem urgent, but aren't important
> Other activities that aren't advancing key metrics
And for Christ's sake, do not multitask.
There's no such thing and you're not good at it.
Sometimes you have to say "no" to your boss, too.
Simply ask, “how am I supposed to do that?” given all the other stuff on your plate. Force them to help your prioritize the MOST IMPORTANT projects and tasks.
Speed is the distance traveled over time. Velocity measures displacement. It’s direction-aware.
All those things focus on speed.
Instead, pick the most important thing. Break into smaller chunks & get to work.
Here's a good formula (h/t @AdamMGrant) to keep in mind:
Law of Productivity: High Quality Work Produced = (Time Spent) x (Intensity of Focus)
• Find somewhere quiet
• Minimize distractions (includes social media)
• Calendar your work sessions
• Set deadlines to increase sense of urgency
The pomodoro technique (25 mins deep work + 5 break) is my go-to.
