8 Ways to Get More Done While You Sleep

8 Ways to Get More Done While You Sleep | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Sometimes it feels like there just isn’t enough time to get everything finished. From the time you wake up until the time you go to bed, it can seem as if the entire day just flew by.


An unfortunate side effect of this stress is that many people shirk their responsibility of sleeping. Instead, they choose to forfeit that vital time for an extra few hours of typing at the computer or reading another document.


But what if you didn’t have to say goodbye to sleep in order to be productive? What if you could utilize your sleeping hours to actually get chores and tasks done?

Your first thought as you look at this article will be, “I’ll read this later.”

Ivo Nový's insight:

Identify the most important thing you have to do today.

Willem Kuypers's curator insight, March 18, 4:38 PM

Un article qui parle de notre intelligence émotionnelle. Trop souvent nous associons leadership et action (un leader est un homme d'action). Je pense plutôt que leadership tient d'abord compte de ses propres limites, et de bien utiliser cette intelligence émotionnelle par rapport à lui-même et les autres. Un leader "est" d'abord avant qu'il ne "fait" des choses.

(From the article): This is a great practice to get you out of your safe, fuzzy and warm bubble and to start thinking BIG.  Don’t think of your current self or your current situation. Begin to think of an alternate universe where your ‘best self’ lives — what would they be doing right now? What is their position? What projects would they be working on? Who would they be talking to, accessing, and leveraging to get things done.

30 Books I’m Glad I Read Before 30 | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
In various ways, these 30 books convey some of the philosophy of how Angel and I live our lives. I honestly credit a fraction of who I am today to each title. Thus, they have indirectly influenced much of what I write about on this site. A medley of both fiction and nonfiction, these great reads challenged my internal status quo, opening my mind to new ideas and opportunities, and together they gave me a basic framework for living, loving, learning and working successfully.

If you haven’t read these books yet, I highly recommend doing so.

10+ No-Signup Collaboration Tools You Can Use in 10 Seconds | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
What do you think of when you hear the word "collaboration"?


Do you associate it with the frustrating clunkiness of trying to synchronize everyone’s work? Many collaboration tools require an account to even get started before you benefit from their collaboration features. That in itself negates the act of swift collaborating, with people coming from all ends of the spectrum to combine ideas, talent and work.


Many believe that collaboration should be as “painless” as possible. We dug through the web with simple guidelines in mind.

He never attributed his accomplishments to his brilliant mind. Rather, he credited his character - his simple curiosity combined with relentless determination.


Albert Einstein went so far as to say he was not smarter than other people. He just stuck with things longer than anybody else.

It's a great lesson in self-leadership for us all. There are many smart people in this world going nowhere fast.

 

Here is what Einstein had to say, and how we can apply his words of wisdom to our daily lives today.

Inside the Psychology of Productivity

Inside the Psychology of Productivity | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Burned out? Can't get it all done? The problem might be in your head.


Productivity, or at least how productive you consider yourself, is surprisingly subjective. As a leader, your most important work--mulling strategy, blue-skying for innovation, imagining the future--may not feel all that productive because it is open-ended and the outcome is uncertain. At the same time, more (subjectively) unimportant work, like clearing out your inbox, can leave you quite satisfied.

The Surprising Details That Lead To Online Dating Success

The Surprising Details That Lead To Online Dating Success | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

As more and more people find love online, the art of dating has become a science, with data scientists poring over millions of fleeting interactions.


For the current study, the motivation was personal: Dr. Sameer Chaudhry, an internist at the University of North Texas in Dallas, was having no luck finding love online. So he looked to his friend Khan, whose research focuses on aggregating scientific data to figure out the best practices in health care systems, to help him figure out what he was doing wrong.

Khan and Chaudhry searched the literature for studies on attraction and persuasion, including studies that specifically focused on online dating.

"The findings from this literature are directly relevant to how one can employ online dating to be most attractive."
