10 Things Super Successful People Do To Stay Calm

10 Things Super Successful People Do To Stay Calm | Getting Things Done | Scoop.it

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Positive thoughts help make stress intermittent by focusing your brain’s attention onto something that is completely stress-free. You have to give your wandering brain a little help by consciously selecting something positive to think about.

William Rowell's curator insight, March 7, 2014 2:16 PM

Leaders or top performers have well honed coping strategies that allow them to perform under stressful circumstances.  Travis Bradberry’s article addresses effective strategies, or ten of the best or most effective strategies...“Some of these strategies may seem obvious, but the real challenge lies in recognizing when you need to use them and having the wherewithal to actually do so in spite of your stress.”

Alicia Davis's curator insight, March 10, 2014 9:38 AM

Being able to understand your perceptions is a key part of changing your level of stress and success.  This article shares really foundational steps on how leaders can stay calm and still maintain high performance.  Core Energy Coaching - the style of coaching that I do - is focused completely on helping people change their perceptions of themselves and others.  Great article!

About GTD | David Allen, Getting Things Done® and GTD®

About GTD | David Allen, Getting Things Done® and GTD® | Getting Things Done | Scoop.it

GTD is a powerful method to manage commitments, information, and communication.


GTD enables greater performance, capacity, and innovation. It alleviates the feeling of overwhelm, instilling focus, clarity, and confidence.


Step by step you will learn how to:

  • Capture anything and everything that has your attention and concern
  • Define actionable things into concrete next steps and successful outcomes
  • Organize information in the most streamlined way, in appropriate categories, based on how and when you need to access it
  • Keep current and “ahead of the game” with appropriately frequent reviews
  • Keep track of the bigger picture while managing the small details
  • Make trusted choices about what to do in any given moment
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Do you want to get more stuffs achieved with less stress? Improve your well being, re-balance your personal / professional life... GTD might help you reaching these different goals. 


Short personal story:

Back in 2007, while I was leading a +50 millions € project... In addition to this strategic project, my wife was pregnant and my son was 2 y/o... Then, I realized that sleeping less than 2 hours a day was not" sustainable" :) so I had to find something to help me to re-balance... This is when I discovered GTD, which I started to implement right away and that I never quit since then.

Rémy Ginoux's curator insight, May 12, 2014 6:02 PM

During this vacation week I started to read this book I borrowed you : Just Terrifically simple and obvious.... it made me ready to experiment this GTD approach, If I would have had papers and pencil, I would have filled In hundreds sheets probably :)

 

Thank you Emeric for all !

How Neuroscientists Explain the Mind-Clearing Magic of Running

How Neuroscientists Explain the Mind-Clearing Magic of Running | Getting Things Done | Scoop.it
It is something of a cliché among runners, how the activity never fails to clear your head. Does some creative block have you feeling stuck? Go for a run. Are you deliberating between one of two potentially life-altering decisions? Go for a run. Are you feeling mildly mad, sad, or even just vaguely meh? Go for a run, go for a run, go for a run.

The author Joyce Carol Oates once wrote in a column for the New York Times that “in running the mind flees with the body … in rhythm with our feet and the swinging of our arms.” Filmmaker Casey Neistat told Runner’s World last fall that running is sometimes the only thing that gives him clarity of mind. “Every major decision I’ve made in the last eight years has been prefaced by a run,” he told the magazine. But I maybe like the way a runner named Monte Davis phrased it best, as quoted in the 1976 book The Joy of Running: “It’s hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time,” he said. “Also, there are those hours of clear-headedness that follow a long run.”

Why GTD is so important to successful Work-Life integration | Getting Things Done | Scoop.it
In today’s world “Work-Life Balance” is an impossible fairy tale.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Work/life balance is at best an elusive ideal and at worst a complete myth, today’s senior executives will tell you. But by making deliberate choices about which opportunities they’ll pursue and which they’ll decline, rather than simply reacting to emergencies, leaders can and do engage meaningfully with work, family, and community.

How Multitasking Slows Your Brain & Kills Your Productivity

How Multitasking Slows Your Brain & Kills Your Productivity | Getting Things Done | Scoop.it

It wasn’t long ago when people were consistently praised for multitasking– the parent who, in one night, juggles children’s homework, their own professional work, the laundry, and spinning classes. Or the ultra-connected marketing manager who, in an hour, answers 10 emails, works on a sales pitch, grabs a coffee, and books a plane ticket for a trade show. Both sound like veritable productivity masters. But the mental toll caused by multitasking has been proven to far outweigh peoples’ ability to simultaneously juggle tasks.

 

Multitasking, in fact, is multifaceted. The term can be defined as performing two or more tasks at the same time, or constantly switching from one thing to another. It can also be described as performing numerous tasks in rapid succession– like sending a tweet, then writing an email, then making a call, then checking your messages, then finishing your presentation. Sound familiar?


Via The Learning Factor, Erin Clark
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

I would not be so "black or white" on this... For sure, in some specific moment, we definitely  need to focus and avoid any kind of distractions, then we should avoid multitasking. But, to be fair, these kind of moments, requiring our full attention, are not so frequent in a regular day. We are all able to identify those and isolate ourselves (if not possible within the 2 coming minutes, then schedule some time later on to do so, cf. the famous 2 minutes rule)


In the other hand, multitasking is very close to the way your brain work. It allows you to make connections, relate different things together, mix them and at the end breaking through, while focus only on 1 thing might lead you to a dead end. 


 As often, it is question and balance and knowing him/herself wheel enough to be able to adopt the quite behavior at the right time.

I agree with this opinion and I believe CEOs should also notice these things while giving tasks to their employees

Heidi Babcock's curator insight, May 14, 2014 1:29 PM

There is no perfect balance, only balanc-ing!

 

4twenty2's curator insight, May 15, 2014 4:51 AM

Wow .... We have all been taught multi-tasking is the way forward - Men are often derided for their lack of ability in this department and now it seems they have been better at getting the job done all along!  

 

This quote really hit hole "trying to focus on one or more tasks at a time actually reduces your productivity by a whopping 40%. It’s equivalent to missing one night of sleep and has two-times more effect on your brain than smoking marijuana"  No wonder after a day of multitasking we feel exhausted -  a rethink on time management is needed!
