The Magic of Doing One Thing at a Time

The Magic of Doing One Thing at a Time | Love Learning | Scoop.it

"Why is it that between 25% and 50% of people report feeling overwhelmed or burned out at work? It's not just the number of hours we're working, but also the fact that we spend too many continuous hours juggling too many things at the same time.

 

The best way for an organization to fuel higher productivity and more innovative thinking is to strongly encourage finite periods of absorbed focus, as well as shorter periods of real renewal"

Secrets of the Most Productive People I Know

Secrets of the Most Productive People I Know | Love Learning | Scoop.it
The path to productivity is not a new assistant or project management software. It's these four shared characteristics.


Highly productive people tend to share certain characteristics:


1. They have a life
2. They take breaks
3. They've often worked in several different industries
4. They have a great network of outside collaborators


Some of these might seem counterintuitive, but it shows that to be really productive you need to have a well balanced life.

Is lifelong learning on the agenda for L&D?

Is lifelong learning on the agenda for L&D? | Love Learning | Scoop.it

If learners are taking more control of their learning, and over a period of time and across multiple roles (potentially), they are in effect ‘lifelong learners’. As Wikipedia puts it: ‘Lifelong learning is the ongoing, voluntary and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge.’

Love Learning's insight:

Do you consider yourself a lifelong learner? If you're reading this then I expect the answer is a resounding yes. But what about your colleagues? Do some people think learning ends with schooling?

Four Rules for This Disruptive Age

Four Rules for This Disruptive Age | Love Learning | Scoop.it

You want certainty. What you really want is a sustainable competitive advantage. But there is no longer any "sustainable" in competitive advantage. The last thing you can expect in this disruptive age is certainty. 

Love Learning's insight:

Does social media scare you? Do you struggle to see the value in building online networks? 

The world doesn't really care about your fears or apprehensions. Change is happening and it's going to keep on happening whether you like it or not. If you don't change you will get left behind. Your skills and knowledge have a half life and they are decaying faster and faster each year. Don't let yourself become irrelevant, take the advice in this article.

Want a Simple Way to Double or Triple Your Own Productivity? Here's How. | Love Learning | Scoop.it
You need to find a way to deal effectively with the distractions, the interruptions, and the fact that there is just way too much on your plate. Fortunately, there is a very simple strategy that has been proven to do the trick.

Why are these plans so effective? Because they are written in the language of your brain--the language of contingencies. Human beings are particularly good at encoding and remembering information in "If X, then Y" terms, and using these contingencies to guide our behavior, often below our awareness

Twitter as a tool for learningScoop.it

Twitter as a tool for learningScoop.it | Love Learning | Scoop.it
Social media often gets a bad rap for being a driving force behind people falling out of touch, neglecting in-person relationships, and reducing productivity for people around the world.
Love Learning's insight:

Do you have strong opinions on Social Media? If so read this article. It might  go some way to changing your mind. 


Twitter is the most effective learning tool I have at my disposal. It connects me to interesting and relevant people around the world, it exposes me to ideas I would never think of myself or hear of. I find out things faster, I have rich conversations with people facing similar challenges and I have built a strong personal learning network. I could not have done this without Twitter.


It's time to take another look at Twitter.

Here's the updated Google powersearching course. You can start the standard course whenever you like, but they've just launched an advanced course too.


This is one of the most comprehensive ways you can learn to search. Over the course of a month you watch video tutorials from Google's very own search experts, complete assignments and participate int online discussions (if you want to).


It takes a bit of commitment to see it through but you will benefit from it unless you're already a "power user". If you register on the site you'll receive an email invite when the next course is running.
