  • Early Career 2013: Satisying Life
  • Transcript

    • 1. Strategic Decisions: Elements of a Satisfying Life Richard Yuretich
    • 2. The Productive Environment Scorecard™ • Adapted from Meggin McIntosh, The Productivity Professor™ • Complete the survey honestly.
    • 3. The Productive Environment Scorecard™ • 105 -117: Congratulations! You’re a model for the rest of us! • 79-104: You’re on the right track, but there’s room for improvement. • 53-78: You’re frequently stressed and have a sense that you’re not being as effective as you want to be (and need to be). • 27-52: Disaster is looming if changes are not made soon! • < 26: Get help immediately!
    • 4. Time and Task Management •CALM •Clear your clutter (physical and mental) •Admit and announce that you can’t do it all •Learn to let go •Maximize what is most meaningful
    • 5. Dealing with Clutter • Clutter is anything that has no current value, merit, or use. • Clutter is clutter no matter where it is. • Clutter is postponed decisions. 80-90% of paper in a file cabinet will never be accessed again (for computer files, it’s more like 99%)!
    • 6. Dealing with Clutter • “What is the worst possible thing that could happen if I get rid of this?” • “Can I get this information somewhere else?” • Time spent on organizing will be repaid with interest.
    • 7. Interruptions • Self-Interruption is the greatest distraction • Don’t do it now – write it down! • Close your door when you want to work in peace. • You don’t have to answer that phone or respond to that email message!
    • 8. Managing E-mail • Turn off the automatic notification! • Check e-mail a few times a day – schedule it! • You get less if you send less. • Don’t respond to trivia. • Wait 24 hours for replying • Keep in-box EMPTY! • Use the telephone! You can often resolve issues quickly and save time!! “Never check email in the morning” by Julie Morgenstern
    • 9. Use Time Well • Focus on the task at hand = mindfulness • Take advantage of short time periods • Work mindfully; take a break. • Schedule your thinking, planning, writing time and stick to it! • Restrict your travels for “work.” • Take a vacation and disconnect.
    • 10. Multitasking Myths • Human brain not wired for it. • Wastes more time than gains. • Leads to mindlessness • Successful people are not multi-taskers, but those who can focus on one task for short intervals.
    • 11. Margins • Get to the airport early: 90 minutes! • Arrive at meetings 10 minutes ahead of time. • Leave spaces in your calendar before and after events. • Build in preparation and decompression time. • Build in follow-up and clean-up time. • Always keep some time unstructured. • Work is a part of your life. How much it occupies is up to you.
    • 12. Work, Life, Tenure • Work is an integral part of your life, but only part. Treat it as such. • Tenure is part of a natural trajectory of success. • Use plans to guide you in achieving your goals.
