The Importance of Prioritization and Time Management

The Importance of Prioritization and Time Management | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

If success depends on effective action, effective action depends on the ability to focus your attention where it is needed most, when it is needed most. This is the ability to separate the important from the unimportant, which is a much-needed skill in all walks of life, especially where there are ever-increasing opportunities and distractions.

 

12 Universal Skills You Need to Succeed at Anything

 

First, let’s talk a little about ‘time’: There are two types of time, clock time and real-time. In clock time, there are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year. All time passes equally. In real-time, all time is relative. Time flies or drags depending on what you’re doing. Time management systems often don’t work because they are designed to manage clock time. You live in real-time. The good news is that real-time is mental. You create it. Anything you create, you can manage.

 

There are three ways to spend time:

Do You Give Up Too Easily? How To Power Through

Do You Give Up Too Easily? How To Power Through | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it
The truth is that many of us don't apply ourselves enough to achieve the positive life changes to which we aspire. Why? Why is it that we so often fail to successfully make the changes we really want?

 

Over the years, I've lectured to tens of thousands of people on the subject of improving their quality of life. One of the main points I make is that an essential element of having more of the life you want is dedicating at least some time each day to clearing and quieting your mind.

 

After describing the practical, physiological, emotional, mental, and of course spiritual benefits of taking even just a few minutes a day to meditate or relax deeply, it's clear that most people are genuinely inspired to do it. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of people ever act on their inspiration. But these would-be meditators are not alone.

10 Tips to Help You Achieve Your Goals | Little Things Matter | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

How would you like to increase the odds of achieving your goals? Whether you desire to lose weight, create financial independence, build a healthy marriage, or raise responsible children, the formula for achieving any goal is the same.

Here are 10 tips in sequential order that will help you increase the odds of achieving your goals: (Each link is one of my related lessons.)

 

1. Identify what’s important to you! The only goals you will succeed in reaching are those that are truly important to you. If a goal is not meaningful or significant to you, you will quit when faced with obstacles. Take 30 minutes and make a list of the things that are truly essential in your life; those that you highly value. Then highlight the most important points on that list and set your goals.

5 Ways to Lead with Emotional Intelligence -- and Boost Productivity | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

More emotional intelligence, is what our world strongly need. This excellent post say all what you need to know about this subject. [note Martin Gysler]

 

Employees today are much more aware of whether or not they are a good fit in their workplace culture and they want their leaders to be more mindful of their needs. In general, employees have become more sensitive about how to best co-exist in a workplace environment that allows them to be who they naturally are.

 

Employees are tired of playing games and just want to be themselves. As such, they are managing their careers and looking to advance by searching for jobs that truly fuel their passion, fulfill their desires, and ignite their real talent. For most, today’s economic landscape has made the career management journey extra challenging. And beyond career advancement opportunities, people want their supervisors and leaders to be more in touch with who they are as people (not just as their colleagues) to assure that their career track is in proper alignment with and supports their personal and professional goals.

21 Habits of Happy People

21 Habits of Happy People | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

“Happiness is a habit – cultivate it.” Elbert

Hubbard


Happiness is one aspiration all people share. No one wants to be sad and depressed.

 

We’ve all seen people who are always happy – even amidst agonizing life trials. I’m not saying happy people don’t feel grief, sorrow or sadness; they just don’t let it overtake their life. The following are 21 things happy people make a habit of doing:

 

1. Appreciate Life
Be thankful that you woke up alive each morning. Develop a childlike sense of wonder towards life. Focus on the beauty of every living thing. Make the most of each day. Don’t take anything for granted. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

 

2. Choose Friends Wisely...

The Productivity Tricks and Daily Habits of Famous People

The Productivity Tricks and Daily Habits of Famous People | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

Famous visionaries often develop a reputation for having a few eccentricities. However, for many people, these small eccentricities are part of a larger group of daily rituals that help them to be at their most productive and prolific. While not all these tips, tricks, and rituals will work for you, they help to shed light on what some of our most beloved cultural icons and historical figures are willing to do in order to stay on top of their demanding workloads.

 

Writers


1. Addicted to Notecards: Vladimir Nabokov used 5- by 8-inch index cards to compose and order the scenes in his novels. This allowed him to experiment with the order of the chapters before transcribing the final manuscript.

 

2. Slow and Steady: Stephen King has explained that he always writes 10 pages a day, every day of the year (even holidays). His slow and steady approach to project management has ensured that he has a steady stream of new works entering the marketplace, and he is one of the most prolific modern authors working in America today.

Building Self-Confidence - Prepare yourself for success

Building Self-Confidence - Prepare yourself for success | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

From the quietly confident doctor whose advice we rely on, to the charismatic confidence of an inspiring speaker, self-confident people have qualities that everyone admires.


Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle: People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.


After all, most people are reluctant to back a project that's being pitched by someone who was nervous, fumbling and overly apologetic.


On the other hand, you might be persuaded by someone who speaks clearly, who holds his or her head high, who answers questions assuredly, and who readily admits when he or she does not know something.


Self-confident people inspire confidence in others: their audience, their peers, their bosses, their customers, and their friends. And gaining the confidence of others is one of the key ways in which a self-confident person finds success.

People don’t want more information.
They are up to their eyeballs in information.
They want #faith - faith in you, your goals, your #success, in the #story you tell.

 

says Annette Simmons, author of “Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins”.

 

How do we reach that people have faith in us?

 

So easy!

 

If we show us from our best side, are authentic and trustworthy and give people appreciation and love they will #respect us, too. What we give comes back to us! The seeds we sow we will harvest one day! Life is a process of giving and taking.

Your body language shapes who you are

Using a few simple tweaks to body language, Harvard researcher Amy Cuddy discovers ways to help people become more powerful.

 

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” - standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident - can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Leadership: 9 things successful people do differently

Leadership: 9 things successful people do differently | Success in Business with Leadership, People, &Technology | Scoop.it

If you aren’t sure, you are far from alone in your confusion. It turns out that even brilliant, highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer — that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others — is really just one small piece of the puzzle.

 

In fact, decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do.
