Overwhelmed With Clutter

Clutter can be defined as anything that keeps us from living the life we are meant to lead, anything that stops us from our accomplishments and the true joy of living.

We clutter everything. Our homes, cars, storage compartments, offices, phones, and even our minds are filled with more clutter than we can possibly manage.

Problem Solving

Most people jump straight from finding a problem to attempting to solve it.

Having a systematic approach to how you deal with problems, as opposed to just going by gut and feelings, can make a big difference in how you creatively find answers to your obstacles.

The role of effort

For most types of work you can increase your productivity by increasing the intensity of your work. No more watercooler chats or lingering over emails.

Some productivity systems admit that we can get more done within the same time. But scheduling every moment of your working day takes extra effort.

Practising Failure
  • We all normally learn from our mistakes, getting to know how to not handle something or what not to do in a situation.
  • Most of our failures happen while we are trying our best to succeed. No one actively seeks failure and makes deliberate mistakes to gather learning.
  • No amount of preparation can help us in various obstacles, and failure becomes the rite of passage to increase our adaptability, flexibility and eventual mastery in any skill.
  • Everyone has a model in their head of how they think the world works. That model is built mostly from what you've experienced and what people you trust have told you. But everyone has different experiences and a different set of people, leading to different models.
  • We also believe something if our income or approval in a social circle depends on believing it.

It is then essential to understand that no one thinks independently. We all suffer from some degree of blindness.

Eisenhower Decision Matrix

The matrix consists of a square divided into 4 quadrants:

  1. Important/Urgent quadrants are done immediately and personally;
  2. Important/Not Urgent quadrants get an end date and are done personally;
  3. Unimportant/Urgent quadrants are delegated;
  4. Unimportant/Not Urgent quadrants are dropped.
Inattention caused by multitasking

Recent research describes multitasking as paying insufficient attention to multiple things at once.

Another new study found it is even worse than that - it prevents people from remembering what they've done and seen, especially is they move from screen to screen.

Logical Fallacies

Logic is fundamental to most of humanity’s knowledge, but there are common fallacies in logic and reasoning, errors of judgement which happen due to:

  1. Our assumptions based on what we see and deduct around us.
  2. The mistaken thinking that logic is always intuitive.
The Observer Effect

Most people overlook the effect that people have when someone is observing them. There is a difference in the behaviour of people, animals and atoms when they are being observed.

Though it is not a universal effect, observing living things does change them, and in the case of atoms, it can result in unpredictable behaviour.

Speculating the Future Using The Past

For futurologists, the modern social-scientific line of thought that speculates on the future, what the future holds can be predicted by what we see now.

We do not know what will happen in the future, but the past can paint a picture. In 1903, the Wright brothers invented the plane, but it took over 50 years before the first planes were commercialised.
