'High-IQ Meetings'

Meetings which require group thinking and discussion to make decisions and are going to be really mentally-challenging, those meetings are known as High-IQ meetings.

Meetings are all about teams and collaboration and if you want your group to be at their best, you need to find a time where everyone can have optimal chance to be fully wake up and get the blood flowing.

"I like to do my high-IQ meetings before lunch, Anything that's going to be really mentally challenging--that's a 10 o'clock meeting. Because by 5 p.m., I'm like, 'I can't think about that today. Let's try this again tomorrow at 10.'"

Get Enough Sleep

Get Enough Sleep

Research indicates that good sleep is vital for "brain plasticity," the brain's ability to learn and adapt.

A good night's sleep also helps you concentrate better when you're awake, while reducing unforced errors and irritability. So, view getting enough sleep as a sound investment.

Feed your soul

Feed your soul

Before starting your work, take out some time for yourself, figure out what would help you, your body, and your mind.

  • Is it a workout?
  • Some time to reflect and meditate?
  • Or, a good breakfast with your loved ones?

By feeding your soul first, you'll be prepared to do great work.

Identify your priorities

Identify your priorities

Sometimes we confuse feeling productive with being productive. 

You might jump into your workday and knock out a bunch of small tasks.

Completing this type of work isn't wrong; it's often necessary. But these are tasks that can often be completed quickly, later in the day.

This gives you time to focus your prime thinking time on the more important decisions.

The more responsibility you have, the more important focus becomes. So, identify your most important decisions for today, and make those your priority.
