Brilliance Vs Hard Work

Brilliant men are often strikingly ineffectual; they fail to realize that the brilliant insight is not by itself achievement.

They never have learned that insights become effective only through hard systematic work.

Intelligence, imagination, and knowledge are essential resources, but only effectiveness converts them into results. By themselves, they only set limits to what can be attained.

Stashed ideas

The Effective Executive

by Peter Drucker

11 IDEAS

The planning fallacy

The planning fallacy is the likelihood to underestimate the time it will take to finish a future task despite knowing that similar projects have taken longer in the past. For example, writers underestimate how long it will take to complete a novel; product managers miscalculate how long a new feature will take to build.

Studies show that we underestimate how long it will take even when we know we're likely to underestimate timelines.

Being productive means being efficient

Being productive is not about doing more. It is about doing things efficiently.

You have the same number of hours in the day as successful authors, musicians, entertainers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders. Investing time in some simple strategies and making small changes can help you get more out of your day.

A process of performing “professional activities…in a state of distraction-free concentration that pushes your cognitive capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and are hard to replicate.” - Cal Newport

Historically, psychologists used to refer to deep work as “being in the flow."

Fear of missing out (FOMO) in the workplace

People suffering from the fear of missing out have a real need to be in the know of everything. They want to see all the news and events, any office activity they want to be a part of and are always busy commenting on Facebook posts or tweeting on Twitter.

But FOMO can negatively affect productivity in the workplace.
