5 pravidel energy-managementu

Pár principů dobré práce, které se vám nyní budou opravdu hodit
The secret is that productivity isn't about time, but about maintaining focus and energy. Highly successful people consider time to be their most valuable asset. By applying their most effective life hacks – which do everything from prioritizing tasks to boosting your energy and keeping you focused – you too can make the most of your time.
1
Ditch your to-do list for a calendar to accomplish more while stressing less.
Research has found that an average of 41 percent of items on to-do lists never actually get completed. One of the reasons for this shocking statistic is that the tasks on such lists usually aren't accompanied by a note stating how long it'll take to complete them. As a result, tasks that are more difficult or less important generally get left undone.
  • his strategy is known as time blocking or time boxing and, incredibly, all it requires is maintaining a detailed calendar. By doing so, Miller forced herself to prioritize tasks that would bring her closer to achieving her goal and, to this day, she keeps an almost minute-by-minute schedule. However, you'll inevitably encounter tasks on your calendar that you can't accomplish. When this happens, instead of letting them drift into the past, simply reschedule. For example, if you usually make it to the gym at noon, but have a flight to catch at the same time, simply move your workout to earlier in the day.
2
Overcome procrastination by anticipating how you'll act in the future and accepting that there'll always be more to do.
This is where the fourth secret comes in: procrastination can be overcome by imagining your future self.

At the same time, being honest about the actions your future self will take can also help you achieve your goals. For example, if you know you'll be inclined to eat unhealthy snacks during a future break, you can protect yourself by throwing out all the junk food in your house. You could even go a step further by filling the house with healthy options like baby carrots and hummus.

From there, you can move on to the fifth secret: there will always be more to do; you can't do everything. And, actually, that's fine!

Writing down your ideas and will clear your mind and boost your productivity.
Have you ever had an incredible idea while shopping for groceries or walking the dog? Wouldn't it be great if, instead of straining to remember it later, you could just jot it down right then and there?

That's why the sixth secret is to always have a notebook handy. After all, writing down your thoughts helps you hold onto them. Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson says he never would have built his business empire without his trusty notebook.

Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson says he never would have built his business empire without his trusty notebook.A good way to untether yourself from your email is by unsubscribing from newsletters by using a program like unroll.me. But you can also adopt the 321-Zero system. To do so, just limit yourself to three email checks per day, while trying to get your inbox to zero in just 21 minutes.

Regain control over your time by avoiding meetings and saying no.

If you've ever had an office job, you know how incredibly boring meetings can be. But that's not the only problem with meetings. The eighth secret is that most meetings are inefficient and you should only schedule them as a last resort.

In fact, a 2015 survey found that 35 percent of respondents considered weekly status meetings to be a waste of time, for these two primary reasons:
First, in accordance with Parkinson's law of triviality, meeting participants tend to waste lots of time on insignificant issues. Second, extroverts usually dominate meetings, making others less likely to participate. As a result, valuable information might not be shared during such gatherings.

The Yahoo CEO, Marissa Mayer, offers another good tip: by scheduling meetings based on increments of five or ten minutes, she's able to have up to 70 meetings a week. If she stuck with the standard 30-minute block she would never be able to accomplish this.

The 80/20 rule and a few self-reflective questions will increase your efficiency and satisfaction.
By now you know that it's essential to spend your limited time on tasks that will have the greatest impact. The tenth secret can help you do that. It says that by applying the Pareto Principle you can uncover shortcuts to success.

Theming each day and immediately completing short tasks will boost your efficiency.
On a normal day in the office, do you ever have difficulty focusing? Most people do and a little bit of advice here can go a long way. This is the twelfth secret, which says that grouping your work into recurring themes each week will make you more effective.

A great example comes from Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter and founder of Square. He says that the secret to running both his companies was to have a theme for each day. For instance, on Mondays, he would focus on management; Wednesdays would be dedicated to marketing; and Sunday would be reserved for reflection, feedback and strategy for the next week.

Imagine waking up at six in the morning, working out for 45 minutes and then whipping together a delicious, high-protein breakfast. It might sound difficult but the fourteenth secret shows why it's essential.

It says that dedicating the first hour of each day to a morning routine will enhance your health – mind, body and soul. In fact, starting the day with a workout is a great way to get your creative juices flowing.
