Multi-tasking = Contant Interruption - Interruption Management

Jordan Grafman, chief of the cognitive neuroscience section of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, years back was quoted in Time Magazine and said:

      "Decades of research, not to mention common sense, indicate that the quality of one's output and depth of thought deteriorate as one attends to ever more tasks.”

Making Smart Decisions - Interruption Management

Buy This Book and Pass It Along: As I mentioned a few weeks back, my colleague, Bob Wendover, has released a great little book on decision making called Figure it out! Making Smart Decisions in a Dumbed-Down World. This quick read got me thinking about all the times I need to do a better job of considering decisions before acting on impulse. Don’t we all? 

On top of all the great ideas, each chapter is augmented with a four-minute “deeper dive” video which helps you flesh out the concepts. To launch  the book, Bob is offering a special package on his website. 

If you go and order a copy, Bob will throw in a poster outlining the concepts, a coaching guide for managers and ten wallet cards that you can give to your employees or your kids.

Racing the Clock No More! - Interruption Management

A reader says, “No matter how conscious I am of saving time throughout the day, I still find myself racing the clock. What, if anything, am I doing wrong?

Answer: Consider the following example: any one-hour activity that you undertake in the course of the day will consume one solid year out of the next 24 years of your life. One hour is to 24 hours as one year is to 24 years. With this realization, consider the cumulative effects of reading junk mail for only 30 minutes a day, or of spending 15 minutes a day in line at the bank which could be avoided if you judiciously used mail, phone, or email services. Make each 30 or even 15 minute segment count.

Key Talent, the Key to Consistency - Interruption Management

News you can use: In her blog, Grow Your Key Talent, prolific author and speaker Rebecca Morgan lays down a challenge to achieving interruption-free, consistent business performance:

"You say you don’t have any budget for professional development? Do you have budget for recruitment costs and training your key staff’s replacements? How about the loss of productivity when these folks leave and there’s no one with the same skills to fill their spot?"

"Wouldn’t it be cheaper to find some ways to keep them learning without spending a bundle? If you’d like a list of 10 inexpensive ways to develop your key talent, just email me and I’ll send you the chart, including typical costs for each."
