Key Ideas

Productivity

Many ambitious people don't stay aware of how their time is spent.

Track the time you spend on work and personal tasks. For extra clarity, assign an hourly rate to your time based on the salary you would like to make. Calculate the cash value of hours spent on things that get you closer to your goals vs. the hours spent on distractions, personal business, or dead-end activities.

Teachability

Failures provide the greatest learning opportunities. Making mistakes may cost you, but far worse is to refuse to learn from them.

When a setback occurs, take time first to pinpoint what went wrong. Then set benchmarks for fixing it.

Connectivity

Can you contact the people you most want to influence?

Growing your email list is crucial to building your following. Invest in an e-mail management tool and take full advantage of the features they offer. Make daily assessments. And if your numbers do not show ongoing growth and engagement, you are not connecting with the right crowd.

Measuring happiness
Measuring happiness

According to psychologists, happiness and life satisfaction do not coincide. Life satisfaction requires individuals to take a step back to assess their lives while happiness mirror...

Valuing well-being as satisfaction

Understanding well-being based on feelings of satisfaction, pleasure, or happiness has two problems.

  • The physical-condition neglect. Humans adapt to their circumstances, meaning the poor and sick can still be relatively happy.
  • Valuation neglect. Valuing life is a reflective activity. It should not be reduced to feeling happy or unhappy.

We should then acknowledge that feeling well is not the only thing people care about.

The capability approach to well being

This approach claims that both personal characteristics and social circumstances affect what people can achieve with a given amount of resources.

What really matters for well-being is what the person manages to do or to be. But well-being is more than that - it also includes freedom.

Working Harder isn’t the Answer

We do it because it's the most visible form of productivity.

It is a way to prove to others that you are doing stuff and checking things off the list.

The Dose-Response Theory

Hard work is necessary in order to be productive, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

At some point, you start to be negatively productive.

Prioritize Tasks by Energy Level

It means scheduling your time according to your natural rhythms:

  • Do your most important work at the beginning of the day if you are a morning person.
  • Don't feel bad about sleeping in because you stayed up late at night to work if you are a night owl.
