How To Get The Busiest People To Reply To Your Emails

How To Get The Busiest People To Reply To Your Emails | Life & Productivity Hacks | Scoop.it
There’s probably a person you admire — an author, executive, entrepreneur, artist, athlete, or anyone else interesting — who you would really enjoy interacting with but feel is way too out of your league.

The thing is, unless you’re looking to grab a coffee with someone like President Obama, you shouldn’t dismiss the idea of networking with an influential figure, says personal finance author Ramit Sethi on author and investor Tim Ferriss’ podcast.

Here’s how to get important people to read and respond to your emails — and maybe even agree to meet with you:

7 Habits of the Most Joyful People in the Office

7 Habits of the Most Joyful People in the Office | Life & Productivity Hacks | Scoop.it

Want to change your mood around the office? It all starts with your actions.

 

Smile when you walk in the door and people will know you are ready to get things done. Look down at the floor and smirk at people waiting for that morning meeting and you're giving them the message that you'll be hiding in your cubicle all day. Sometimes, seemingly trivial facial expressions, minor activities, and routine habits can reveal your mood. But these habits can do more than just reveal your mood; they can also dictate your mood.

 

The best way to change your attitude, experience more joy in your work life, and spread a little of that happiness around the office is to adopt habits that foster a better mood. Sure, we all get a little cranky about the Starbucks barista who scoffed at the stain on our shirt or the taxi driver who smelled like yesterday's pizza. No worries. Try a few of these activities and develop habits to increase your happiness during the day.

I particularly like the idea of smiling just before it's your turn to talk and taking a deep breath to get grounded during company meetings. They can be such a grind. Another thing that brings me joy is asking the meeting planner to produce an agenda before the meeting.

How To Trick Your Brain To Hold On To Positive Habit Changes

How To Trick Your Brain To Hold On To Positive Habit Changes | Life & Productivity Hacks | Scoop.it

Nearly half of our everyday behaviors tend to be repeated in the same location almost every day, according to research out of Duke University. That means most of the time we are running on autopilot.


On average, a habit takes more like 66 days to form, with more intensive habits like doing 50 sit-ups every morning taking around 84 days to form, according to research out of University College of London that Dean references in his book. But these figures will often vary greatly from person to person.


Forming habits that stick isn't about finding a magic number. It's about being aware of your behaviors and environment and their effects on your brain. Here are some steps to get started:

8 Psychological Principles to Make a Memorable Presentation

8 Psychological Principles to Make a Memorable Presentation | Life & Productivity Hacks | Scoop.it
We all have experienced our fair share of bad presentations. A colleague steps up to the front of the room. He or she presents. We all fall asleep. It’s the plague of the current business landscape.

Why is it this way?

Most presenters are neglectful of how individuals learn. A few years ago, a research team led by Stephen Kosslyn and comprised of experts from Stanford, the University of Amsterdam, and Harvard made it a mission to unpack how presenters could improve in the art of public speaking. What they discovered were 3 steps that go into receiving and digesting information from a presentation:

13 Things Successful People Do In The First 10 Minutes Of The Workday | Life & Productivity Hacks | Scoop.it

How you handle the first 10 minutes of your workday can largely determine how productive and effective you’ll be the rest of the day.

“Getting off on the right foot isn’t just important with relationships, it’s important with the start of any workday, as well — particularly busy ones,” says Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of “You Can’t Be Serious! Putting Humour to Work.” “The first 10 minutes can also set the tone and your attitude for the day — so it’s imperative that you start it off right, with a clean slate.

Stuck. Stagnant. Can't break out of a rut. Frozen.

As a writer, it sometimes feels like I'm stuck to a large piece of Velcro that won't let go.


Writer's block is the ailment that prevents you from coming up with good ideas when you sit down to write. We'll save the debate about whether it even exists for another day. And, we'll skip the obvious solutions like going for a walk or drinking coffee.

Sleep Deprived? 3 Tricks to Get Through the Day

Sleep Deprived? 3 Tricks to Get Through the Day | Life & Productivity Hacks | Scoop.it

Maybe you have a newborn at home or maybe it's that insane week before an impossible deadline. Whatever the ultimate cause of your sleep deprivation, occasionally we all have times in our lives when we can't heed the sensible advice of experts to get enough sleep.

 

When these crunch times hit, you might feel like curling up into a little ball under your desk and sleeping away the day, but unfortunately you need to find a way to soldier on. Science can help. New York Magazine's consistently fascinating Science of Us column recently reached out to sleep researchers to round up advice on what to do when you've had a really, really lousy night's sleep.

 

All of these scientists stressed that consistently sleeping less than seven or eight hours a night is a truly terrible idea, but they did have tips to offer for these emergency situations, which writer Melissa Dahl organized into a helpful timeline for the sleep deprived. Here are a few of the tips you'll find in the complete post:

I prefer to get enough sleep. When I don't I find that being out in the sun helps. I also find a short 15 minute nap can go a long way. I wonder how you master those days when you're sleep deprived? It's unfortunately such a common phenomenon. I read that 1 in 6 fatal driving accidents is caused by sleep deprivation in the US.
