7 Things “Star Wars” Taught Me About Productivity | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
When life gets tough, James Altucher asks himself What would a Jedi do?

 

Here’s some of the life lessons that I’ve learned from the Star Wars movies:

 

1) Rest when you have nothing to do. 

2) Rid yourself of everything you don’t need.

3) Practice being “good.”

4) Prioritize your health. 

5) Be around other Jedis.

6) Be open-minded. 

7) Trust that life is cyclical.

Why making my tasks emotional increased my productivity

Why making my tasks emotional increased my productivity | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Introducing The To-Do List Organized By Emotion

Leverage your emotions to make dull tasks more fulfilling.

 

"I am optimistic about the approach. Our belief that we’re not easily influenced has been fabulously debunked by the extraordinary studies showing how, when prompted with words that suggest states of being, we act accordingly. Show people words related to old age and they walk more slowly etc.

So maybe, simply seeing a task list littered with the promise of good feelings can start to shift the deep, unhelpful emotions associated with the very idea of “tasks”.

Critically, in unearthing a task’s emotion, I’ve learned I have first to find the associated “Why” of the task. Emotions need a why. And “Why to do” to is always a better place to begin your day than “What to do”.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

Entrepreneur and author Robyn Scott wanted to create a habit of making one introduction within her network a day. In order to get herself excited enough to do it, she created a category on her to-do list titled, “Highly helpful.” Noticing the efficiency of this method, she now sorts her tasks using these categories:

 

Triumphant: Client pitches, investment presentations, hiring plans. Mission critical stuff.

 

Supremely satisfying: Inbox zero (aided by Tony Hsieh’s lovely “Yesterbox” technique), making a tricky phone call, research.

 

Massive relief: Tax return, sorting out insurance, booking flights.

 

Highly helpful: Intros, advice, intros, intros.

 

Basic decency: Thank you notes, keeping promises. I’ve found this list surprisingly revealing. It shows the conflict between two things I value greatly: generosity and integrity. I tend to promise too much. Seeing my impossibly long list in “basic decency” helps me avoid over-promising and jeopardising integrity.

 

Delight: I’d been meaning for ages to get a print of Raphael’s School of Athens for my office, calling a friend out of the blue.

 

Fit for Battle: A daily run, 10 minute morning meditation.

Wellness and the Coach ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

You choose to coach because you want to help other people. However, many coaches are better at supporting their clients than they are at helping themselves. Unless you’re at your best, you can’t support your clients effectively. Therefore, understanding the cognitive, emotional and behavioral aspects of your own wellness is fundamental in order to be a successful and sustainable support to your clients.

Balance & Self-Care: Are We Doing Enough For Our Clients?

Balance & Self-Care: Are We Doing Enough For Our Clients? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

We live in societies that place great value on results - achievement, qualifications, status and success - often at great personal expense. Many people work themselves extremely hard - ignoring what their bodies and minds are telling them. But what's the point of success, a great career - if you're always stressed, overwhelmed, don't see your family and friends (or are grumpy/tired when you do see them)?

What I find interesting is that whilst balance and self-care are central to many life coaches' practices, it seems that in the corporate world these words are tiptoed around (even though we know people perform better when they take care of themselves).

4 Lifehacks From Ancient Philosophers That Will Make You Happier

4 Lifehacks From Ancient Philosophers That Will Make You Happier | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Science and ancient philosophers agree on a number of ways for boosting happiness and living a better life. Here's what you can learn from great thinkers.

 

1) “What’s The Worst That Could Happen?”

“Negative Visualization” is one of the main tools of Stoicism.
Really thinking about just how awful things can be often has the ironic effect of making you realize they’re not that bad.

 

2) “As If”
The Stoics valued tranquility and thought being angry was a waste of time. But what should you do when your blood boils?
Force a smile. Soften your voice. Seneca thought if you act calm, you will become calm.

 

3) Make It A Treat
We want everything and we want it yesterday.
The Stoics, on the other hand, used to deliberately walk around on cold days without a coat. Or skip meals to become hungry. Why?
Denying yourself something makes you appreciate the things you take for granted.

 

4) It’s Okay To Stumble
Does Stoicism seem hard? Don’t want to think about how awful things can be right now? Don’t want to give up your ice cream for a day?
They knew that too. What did Epictetus tell his students after he taught them these Stoic lifehacks?
He told them what to do when they screw up — because we all do.
Forgive yourself.

The Best Way to Change Your Habits? Use Your Environment

The Best Way to Change Your Habits? Use Your Environment | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Since we know that discipline is built like a muscle—and can likewise be worn out—environmental changes might be useful in getting ourselves to do difficult tasks regularly.

Below I’ll outline some of my favorite methods found through the academic literature, as well as some personal tests conducted by myself and others.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

Good points and good tips here. Main ideas:


We are more reliant on environmental triggers than we’d like to think.


Using Your Environment to Change Behavior:


1.) Task association. Strictly associate an ‘outlet’ with a specific task.You can also use task association with environments:  start assigning certain locations with very particular activities.

2.) Reduce or increase friction. Your environment can  be tweaked to make certain tasks more difficult or easier to do. Tough habits stick when you can simplify the behavior.

3.) Using contextual cues. It's easier to make a habit consistent if it’s built off of an existing chain. In other words, Task X becomes easier to perform regularly if it is ALWAYS preceded or followed by Event Y.

4.) Routinize with systems. Success is most often the result of consistent execution of a single habit. Having too many choices is the enemy of long-term goals. In other words,  having ‘options’ makes consistent behavior harder to maintain. Spotting opportunities to create systems is the best way to make long-term goals a reality.
