Creating a productive schedule
Prioritizing tasks effectively
At the 1968 Olympic Games, Dick Fosbury jumped over the high bar backwards. Until then, every Olympic high jump athlete had gone over forward. However, within eight years, 90% of high jumpers were going over the bar backwards, and today, every high jumper uses the "Fosbury Flop."
The biggest leaps forward for athletes are discovering an idea or concept that changes the game itself. This means not using the same patterns as everyone else.
Make a list of all the initiatives you are using or considering. Then ask if you are successful, what impact will it have on your objectives? Divide them into the following categories:
Olympic swimmers always swam to the wall, grab hold, and kick off to turn. In the 1936 Olympics, sixteen-year-old Vande Weghe developed an advantage by introducing a flip-turn, a smooth flip underwater to maintain momentum. He held the advantage for about a year until others started copying his method.
Expertise and conventional rules can hold us back by repeating what has worked in the past. Instead, approach your initiatives with a beginner's mind. Imagine you are approaching it for the first time, then find unique solutions.
The best athletes and coaches use technological advancements to gain an edge. For example, new spikes on cleats help sprinters to run faster.
But the immediate performance gain is just the first step. Technology also opens the door to revise commonly-held approaches on how something is done. Dick Fosbury could only jump over the high bar backwards after the thick cushioned landing pads had been introduced a few years earlier.
The flip-tun stayed the same from 1936 to 2015. Then Ryan Lochte attempted a new style of turning where he would remain on his back much longer, earning him multiple gold medals.
If you play the game the way you've always played, you will get the result you've always expected. To improve your outcome, change how you approach the game. Develop a habit of seeking new approaches while looking past accepted solutions.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
