7 Steps to Incredible Personal Productivity

7 Steps to Incredible Personal Productivity | Developing the Spice brand | Scoop.it
Practical advice to turn an average workday into an incredibly productive day.

 

Occasionally you need to go the extra mile.

 

Sometimes you need to complete a major project, tackle a task you’ve put off, or just knock out a ton of work in one day.

 

Here’s the best way to turn a normal workday into an incredibly productive workday:

 

1. Let everyone know. Interruptions destroy focus and kill productivity. So are the guilt trips your family "sometimes unintentionally" lay on you. Let coworkers and family know you’re planning a “project day.” Tell key customers too. Announce you will be tied up on, say, Tuesday, and that you will respond to calls and emails on Thursday. Let people know who to contact in an emergency. Some will get with you before Tuesday, and the rest will make a mental note you’re not available. In either case, you’re covered.

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | Developing the Spice brand | Scoop.it

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.

 

Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.

 

The world’s most impactful leaders in all arenas, from business to government, understand the paradox that although leadership starts with the leader, it’s never about the leader. This wisdom should be emulated and applied by everyone who aspires to leadership.

Innovation Excellence | 7 Strategies for Generating Ideas

Innovation Excellence | 7 Strategies for Generating Ideas | Developing the Spice brand | Scoop.it

Generate new ideas, this is the challenge of any person who is ambitious and / or who is an entrepreneur. In this excellent article, you will certainly find a few more ideas for you to advance in this field. [note mg]

 

How do organizations come up with new ideas? And how do they use those ideas to create successful new products, services, businesses, and solutions?

To answer these questions, a team of researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York spent time observing radical innovation projects such as IBM’s silicon-germanium devices, GE’s digital X-ray, GM’s hybrid vehicles, and DuPont’s biodegradable plastics. Their key finding? Most of the ideas behind these projects came from “happy accidents” rather than some ongoing process to generate ideas.

 

In more than a few cases, individuals or small groups were simply “freelancing,” working on ideas on their own initiative rather than being directed by some “new venture” board or other idea management system.
