This week is a lot about doing more with less and things you shouldn’t do at all.

Let’s start with the things you shouldn’t do. As you can guess these are things hindering your productivity.

And this article I found useful, it is about why working more is getting you less. A strong point I made in my book and things I still feel challenged about around life life balance.

Last but not least, on the note of productivity, I found an article on a todo list that might work – I am not convinced, but it’s an interesting take.

This week is a bit of self help tips…

From how to appear smart in meetings – some super cool stuff in there, but not sure I would recommend all of those.

To 8 ways how to get through the afternoon slump. Oh yes, those days are getting shorter and we are getting more tired after lunch, aren’t we?

And whilst some argue there is no ‘negative’ feedback, there are those questions that lower resistance to negative feedback.

Have a great Thursday….see you in a flash 😉

A good read on #EQ and whether it is important when hiring for a start up or hiring in general. I actually wrote about that on LinkedIn earlier last month: EQ vs. IQ.

And if you deal a lot with negative people, find a great guide on simple ways to handle negative people!

Seven Ways to say NO when it is easier to say yes – reminds me of a book on my parent’s shelf: Don’t say Yes if you want to say No.

Enjoy,
Volker

Similar to my book about being better, #BeBetter, the first article looks at personal success and the 5 todos for a personal transformation.

The second article from the Energy Project looks at our lifestyle and distractions through media, delivered through phones mainly. A good guide to maybe go on a digital detox? Addicted to distraction.

And the last one for this week looks at successful people’s habits: the compound time vs. conventional time.
Why Successful People Spend 10 Hours A Week On “Compound Time”.

This week’s first article is about the Japanese Way Of Life and how happiness and a fulfilled life leads to a higher life expectancy.

And whilst I am a Slack user, there is fabulous guide on How Slack uses Slack. That’s like looking at Google and asking them how they search stuff. Very insightful I find.

Last but not least, this article tells you all about focus and priority based on entrepreneurs’ views of the world. Great insight if you aske me:
Things Entrepreneurs tell you to do.

How resilience works: This HBR article was recommended to me by my CEO. This is a great article and worth spending the time to read and understand.

The brain reset button – or when I thought that getting drunk as a student did the same as pressing reset on an old 486 PC 😉 Life doesn’t quite work like that but this is a very useful article to ‘reboot the brain power’.

Use systems to make your life easier. Those of you who have read my book would have read similar. The better the system, the easier the habit, the more simplistic your life can become.

You Can Reprogram Yourself to Be a Positive Person and You Should. This article shows how. Similar to last week’s post about being positive, this article shows more technique on how to do it.

And did you know. There is a time perception difference for bi-lingual people. Who would have thought 😉 Maybe that’s why time seems to expand for me, or not?

Why Buddhism is so important in modern times like ours. The Meditation Cure: When the Buddha Meets Darwin. A very interesting piece on modern day and the usefulness of meditation.

Maybe things calmed down out there a bit. However, never too late to be productive and improve your productivity over the summer.

Then there was an article about the iPhone in 2020. A longer read but if you are interested in some futuristic thoughts and like Apple, this one is for you.

And last but not least, there are dangers of measuring performance. Not in general but for some start ups, and some not so start ups, as you measure the effectiveness of the system and not the performance of the individual. Some interesting thoughts there, so worth a read.

Enjoy your summer,
Volker
