4 Major Sleep Related Factors That Affect Our Cognitive Performance

4 Major Sleep Related Factors That Affect Our Cognitive Performance | Business Management | Scoop.it

If you want to be an active, energetic person, that is successful in your business, there is an essential key factor that will really help you achieving those goals you have set to yourself: a good night sleep.  This may just sound common sense, but there is actually loads of new research coming out that evidences  the benefits of regular seven to nine hour sleep.  Even though everyone knows about the need of a full night sleep, unfortunately we are still trying to get rid of a strongly entrenched trend in society that for decades has confused sleeplessness with vitality and high performance,  particularly in the corporate cultures.  Who doesn´t know (or hasn´t identified with)  the ambitious person who works all the time, sleeps five to six hours a day for weeks in a row, and is addicted to cups of coffee (the world’s second-most widely sold commodity, after oil) ?

 A good night sleep enables a person's brain to relax and recover from stressful thinking due to a very heavy work load. As they said, lack of sleep can cause various psychological effects towards attitude and behavioral activity.

 

A business minded person somehow can sacrifice his/her time from sleeping but sacrificing that is done everytime is not good towards health and mental health. So be cautious of budgeting time if you want to have a successful career towards business. 

 

If in case you have problems with sleeping patterns and observe slight changes towards your attitude you can do some research to overcome this kind of situation. But if you don't have spare time researching and reading articles online you can consult to a psychologist who can manage and let you fully understand the concept of your problem and aids to help you over come such.

 

A good psychologist in Delaware that can help you with this kind of situation is Dr. Carl Shekhar. View her webpage to know more details about this certified psychologist in Delaware: www.CarolGrahamShekhar.com

8 Ways to Kick-Start Your Workday

8 Ways to Kick-Start Your Workday | Business Management | Scoop.it

As November turns to December, it gets harder and harder to flip the switch from holiday festivities to emails and spreadsheets. Take it from me: I work from home as a freelane writer. While I love the flexibility and freedom of this arrangement, it can be challenging to get motivated without a team of colleagues and a conventional office environment to show up at every day, especially at this time of year.

 

But here’s what I’ve found to be one key to my success: a set, regular, step-by-step morning routine. Some parts of the routine are constructive, and others are more ritualistic, but I’ve discovered that my greatest times of productivity occur when I stick to this practice.

Agreed. Stretching is relaxing and loosens the muscles! Coffee wakes us up, having an organized work space helps us get more done, and managing our time properly makes us more efficient.

Dan Watson and the article / author are right on - teamwork is a critical ingredient to any business' success.  The 6 team mate type discussion is definitely something to consider. 

 

In essence - this also speaks to the power of true Diversity and Inclusion.  D&I is more of a business imperitive than a social cause - as to ignore D & I is to pay lip service to "team work", and "leaves money on the table".  The article through the 6 team mate types speaks to valuing diversity of opinion, style, and background; and inclusion as valuable to a highly performing team.

Vincent Picton's curator insight, August 18, 2014 10:07 AM

I do not necessarily agree with this saying, but I feel that teamwork may lead to success faster.

 

It is true that one person may not be able to complete the jobs that five people could due to lack of skills, but if that person was very skilled they may be able to complete the task, it would just take them longer.

 

This is how I felt sitting with the client in the waiting room.

A significant percentage of working-age Mexicans (PEA: economically active population) have no chance of finding a job as an employee, so it needs to develop the ability to use tools for self-employed or start a business. A useful tool is the Business Model Canvas, which allows a review sheet nine key concepts that has any business, and develop knowledge and actions that increase the likelihood that the company move forward.

Un porcentaje importante de los mexicanos en edad de trabajar (PEA: Población Económicamente Activa) no tendrá oportunidad de encontrar un trabajo como empleado, por lo que necesita desarrollar la habilidad de utilizar herramientas para auto-emplearse o para iniciar un negocio propio.

How resilient are you? Being a small business owner is hard but rewarding work. With the right attitude and proper support structure, you can make a go at it. 

Ciara Turner's curator insight, October 24, 2013 12:29 PM

 

Small business owners will always feel like they have a lot to prove as well a lot to lose. Especially, for the majority of the business owners that life has been devoted to keeping their business afloat. They have invested too much of their time money and effort into their business. According to the article it stress that a business owner MUST have resilience as a leader. They must be able to take on any obstacle that comes their way.

 

With the understanding that they still-fragile economic recovery, the difficulties small businesses face securing funding, and the importance of finding and retaining the right employees, places enormous stress on leaders today. Which is understandable however the business world does not wait on anyone? The competitors feast off of those that show weakness. By developing a true resilient mindset, small business owners can continue growing their business regardless of the obstacles around them.

 

In the article it gave a couple of tips on how to improve business owner’s resilience mindsets. It was four steps; don’t go it alone, accept people help, keep your eye on the goal, maintain a positive outlook.

 

Reach out to other trusted business owner or consultants for ideas and support. Small Business owners need to realize they are not in it alone. Once you have reached out the next step will accept the help that is being offered. It is not a sign of weakness. Business owners should keep their eye and mind on why they started this company to reinsurance themselves when time gets hard. Which can help them keep a positive outlook on any situation that comes up to sufface.  

 

With that being said I think that smaller business should engaged more into the Chapter 9 topic business to business relations. Which chapter touches on a couple key points for this particular article the fact of building and maintaining a relationship with other local businesses. On page 194 in the chapter someone suggested and I quote , " one-one-one discussions, partner advisory councils, surveys, and collaboration. the idea is to understand their issues and help partners grow."   Having an understanding that it is a competition however what a competition is if you have no one to compete with.

 

From a PR stand point I think that having that open minded mind set and such with only help you and your community thrive for better prosperity.
