Just Reading Over Your To-Do List Can Make You More Productive

Just Reading Over Your To-Do List Can Make You More Productive | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

If you have a love-hate relationship with lists of all kinds, you aren’t alone. On one hand, making a list–whether it’s a grocery list or a to-do list–gives you a single place to keep all your priorities front and center. But that same list can also be a source of anxiety. The longer it gets, the more you may find yourself avoiding it, knowing that the effort it’ll take to cross everything off is going to be considerable.

 

But as it turns out, you’ll be much more productive if you actually read your to-do list regularly–even if you don’t manage to finish every single item that’s on it. Here’s why.

Reasoned judgements: 5 steps to help avoid bad decision making

Reasoned judgements: 5 steps to help avoid bad decision making | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

In all walks of life, whether it be business, politics, at home or in our social circles, we instinctively look to our leaders and role models to make important decisions.
 
Experience and industry knowledge are undoubtedly useful resources that we can use to guide us through the process. But it can be easy to forget that the ability to step back, analyse a situation and use that information to make a reasoned judgement is a skill that can, and should, be practiced and honed.

The digital transformation of learning: Social, informal, self-service, and enjoyable

The digital transformation of learning: Social, informal, self-service, and enjoyable | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

The vast co-created commons of the internet have long been seen as a way for the connected and motivated to learn on their own. However, as digital has fundamentally changed how we find knowledge and share information with each other, it has also steadily shifted the landscape of learning itself: The typical person today is far more likely to reach for their mobile phone to learn something than find a relevant book or go to the library.

Call it the digitization of learning or just the realization of the the promise of the internet, it's become abundantly clear that freeform online repositories of knowledge such as YouTube and Wikipedia, as well as dozens of open, high quality digital learning platforms such as Coursera, Open Culture, or the Khan Academy have become leading new instruments for global learning.

The Myth of Multitasking: Why Fewer Priorities Leads to Better Work

The Myth of Multitasking: Why Fewer Priorities Leads to Better Work | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

"Yes, we are capable of doing two things at the same time. It is possible, for example, to watch TV while cooking dinner or to answer an email while talking on the phone", writes James Clear

 

"What is impossible, however, is concentrating on two tasks at once. Multitasking forces your brain to switch back and forth very quickly from one task to another.

 

This wouldn't be a big deal if the human brain could transition seamlessly from one job to the next, but it can't. Multitasking forces you to pay a mental price each time you interrupt one task and jump to another. In psychology terms, this mental price is called the switching cost."

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 9, 2:30 AM

With so much information all around us, the temptation to try to multi-task is very high but as this article and many others tell us is that we can't really multi-task. We can process things in serial or switch attention between two things happening at once but if the the cognitive attention required for either task is significant for either task we cannot effectively do them at the same time.

 

 

The pressure to try to multitask is high given the information overload but the reality is that we need to ensure that we don't experience a 'filter failure' and are able to prioritise and focus.

How To Turn Complicated Ideas Into Simple Concepts

How To Turn Complicated Ideas Into Simple Concepts | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

You’re sitting in a conference room with all the big bosses. They’re meeting to discuss the annual budget, and it’s your job to pitch them your case for more money for your team.

 

The problem?

 

While you’re quite confident everyone has a vague idea what your department does, you’re not nearly as confident that everyone sees the importance of what you do or the way you do it.

Why? Well, what you do is pretty specific. Maybe so much so that your own friends don’t quite get it.

 

But even if that’s the case, you’re going to have to learn how to get people on board with your work when you’re looking for a cut of the company’s budget, meeting with someone from a completely different field, or pitching an idea to a client.

 

Here’s how to do that:

How Lifelong Learning and a Growth Mindset Can Propel Your Career


Many people believe once they’ve earned all the degrees needed for their dream job, their learning days are over. This is a dangerous way to manage a career, because technologies and business models emerge and force change so rapidly.
The pace of change is accelerating, and to succeed in any industry, and to be ready to participate in the next evolution of it, professionals must adopt habits and practices that empower lifelong learning.

One challenge to lifelong learning is that many people assume they are not capable of it or not good at it. We tell ourselves, I’m not a math person. I don’t get code. Writing is not my strong suit. Remarks like this may mask a feeling that learning itself is beyond our grasp.

 

Lifelong learning never happens without a healthy dose of personal grit. A short, but powerful word, grit means persevering in the face of challenges and adversity. Gritty individuals are motivated to overcome those obstacles — whether in their personal or professional lives.
