Emails. Texting. Facebook. Twitter. Lunch. Phone calls. Memos. Budgets.
But while it seems like you’re getting lots and lots done, truth is – according to this great blog by Tony Schwartz, president and CEO of the Energy Project – it’s zapping your productivity and your energy.
He says, “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.”
Focus. Renewal. Sounds pretty good. Better than the constant “bing” of an incoming email.
Read the blog. He gives three great tips for managers and three for individuals to help us be more productive, set boundaries, be fully engaged, and renew. Truly renew.
Now if you’ll excuse us…we’re going offline for a bit to enjoy a sip of tea and a bit of renewal. Just getting ready to tackle the next project with pure, uninterrupted focus!
