The First Four Things You Should Do Every Workday

The First Four Things You Should Do Every Workday | Competitive Edge |
I recently got to work an hour early. I had one goal in mind: world-domination, early-morning productivity. I made coffee, opened my email inbox, and the next thing I knew . . . it was noon. Where did the day go? And, more importantly, why didn’t I get anything substantive done? Sure, I cleared out my inbox, but I didn’t tackle a thing on my to-do list.

After my lackluster morning, I decided to do some research and really figure out the right way to spend the first hour of my workday. And after a little practice, I learned just how productive one can be when you’re thoughtful about this. So grab some coffee and make these four things a staple in your morning work routine: Read more: click image or title.

Le prime quattro cose da fare ogni mattina:
1- "mangiare il rospo"
2- "cercare le bandierine rosse"
3- organizzare la propria lista delle "cose da fare"
4- salutare i tuoi colleghi


Questo interessante articolo in inglese spiega in modo semplice come migliorare la propria produttività sul posto di lavoro, semplicemente facendo dei piccoli accorgimenti comportamentali nell'organizzazione del lavoro.


Come si può leggere nell'articolo si passa dal "mangiare il rospo", ovvero fare al mattino le cose più importanti o più pesanti come prima cosa in modo da liberare la mente, al "cercare le bandierine rosse", ovvero velocemente controllare le email e cercare le più importanti da prendere in carico.

La classica lista delle cose da fare è un punto che può sembrare banale, ma che in realtà permette di essere molto più efficaci. E infine, il contivare le relazioni all'interno dell'ambiente lavorativo è un qualcosa che va a migliorare in generale il benessere e dunque lo svolgimento delle proprie attività.

12 Quiet Rituals of Enormously Successful Humans

12 Quiet Rituals of Enormously Successful Humans | Competitive Edge |
Practical Tips for Productive Living

The result of enormous success is often pretty noisy – lots of people talking, writing and sharing stories about it.  The actual process of achieving enormous success, on the other hand, is far more discreet.  But it’s this process that happens quietly, behind-the-scenes, that makes all the difference in the world.

Marc and I are fortunate enough to know a number of enormously successful human beings.  Regardless of lifestyle, industry or profession, they all share many of the same quiet rituals.  And that’s precisely what I want to discuss with you today.

Building upon our recent video blog post on success, here are twelve things the most successful people we know do quietly and diligently:
