New Myths: The Latest Breakthroughs in Working Smarter
Of course, you want to work smarter. You already know you can’t rob your sleep, multi-task, or continue at this break-neck pace.
Sleeping is critical to thinking. Lose 2 hours, and it’s the same as impaired driving in your ability to function. Multi-tasking used to be something to brag about, but now, we know the cost of the attentional blink. If you try it behind the wheel, you will get a ticket or worse. Powering through the work just to get it done will only run you down. But what else has the latest research uncovered about working smarter?
Personality Fit Matters
To work smarter is to find a career that matches your personality. When you are in a job that suits you, you could stand to earn the equivalent of a month’s salary more per year. Teams need diversity in skills and ideas, but not in personality. Ensuring fit among personality ensures that two heads are better than one.
Time Tension Motivates
We all are terrible at estimating how long something will take. Hofstadter’s Law states that it always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account this law. Give yourself too much time to get it done, and you will be just as likely not to get it done as if you had no deadline at all. Track what you accomplish, and use historical data to predict the duration of future work.
Energy is Yours to Manage
You have to track your time and use the data as per above, but managing time is the wrong place to focus. Instead, you should manage your energy. We all have tasks that take our full concentration and ability, but we also have things we can do without much effort. Tackle the hard stuff when you are at your peak, and continue to chose the work according to the energy you have. The cool thing? Getting hard stuff done will increase your confidence and energy while thinking about it will only tax it.
Over Emphasis on Completing
Don’t beat yourself up over the things you haven’t finished. Nothing everything you start should be completed. Too often, we get our heads down and push through on tasks that are no longer relevant, projects that should be axed and goals that should be modified. Da Vinci didn’t finish everything either, but thinking you have to will prevent you from getting started and getting the juice flowing. However, when the finish line is in sight, expect a burst of new energy.
Be Clear about Who You Are
Much of your unconscious decisions are ruled by who you think you are. Identities govern behavior so much that it is little wonder that a different name can unleash a whole different capability. Beyoncé adopted Sasha Fierce, and now she’s quite the force. Your beliefs about what you can or can’t do are just beliefs, but Henry Ford knew that decades ago. If there’s a big difference between your current self and your future self, expect your willpower to diminish rapidly.
Working smarter will help you get what you used to get done in less time with less effort. However, should you decide that means it’s time to knock off, even the author of The Four Hour Workweek doesn’t work only four hour weeks. Working smarter is about taking that extra capacity and doing something even better with it. Where are you going to reinvest your earned time?
If you want to learn more about these breakthroughs and other myths of working smarter, sign up for the upcoming free workshop, to be released in the next few weeks. It might be the smartest investment of your time for the whole year.
