How Single-Tasking Boosts Your Productivity

How Single-Tasking Boosts Your Productivity | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

While writing this post, I had 18 tabs open. I’d like to say they were all for research, although I’m pretty sure one or two slipped down a YouTube wormhole.

 

Does this sound familiar?

 

It seems like my multi-tab madness is right in line with the status quo. We all love to have multiple tabs open at once, adding more and more as we find new articles to click and sites to visit. Pretty soon, it’s likely we’ve forgotten what we were online for in the first place.

Overwhelmed and in need of an attention-overhaul? Might be time to approach your workflow in a new way.

Thank goodness - the death knell on multi-tasking. Focus is the key to being effective.

Michelle Bish's curator insight, August 13, 2014 1:09 PM

I have 17 tabs open, 3 Excel, 2 Word and 2 ppt files open. And a second browser. I need some single tasking!

When Networks Become Shackles for Aspiring Leaders

When Networks Become Shackles for Aspiring Leaders | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Getting ahead requires building professional networks. As I’ve discussed before, those in a junior or weak position can overcome their weakness and start to move into senior positions by building relationships with those similar to them, which often are more accessible and willing to help. Those relationships are good when you are in survival mode. Beyond that, such bonds may no longer be useful and can in fact be harmful to future advancement.

It is refreshing to learn from the mistakes of others.  Too often we celebrate these mistakes as if failure is good thing. In reality we should support those who fail knowing that all of us fail at one time or another.
