Time isn’t the main thing. It’s the only thing. ~ Miles Davis
When is the right time for you?
Have you ever wondered why sometimes you feel energised during the day and at other times you feel drained? Do you know when your best times are to take important decisions? When things don’t start well, do you just accept this as inevitable? Why do projects and teams lose momentum in the middle? Why is lunch so important?
In Dan Pink’s latest book When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing he presents answers to these and many more questions. Pink joins a host of authors today who trawl through academic journals and scientific papers to distil their findings into a theme so we don’t have to do this ourselves!
One nice feature of this book is how he’s integrated a Time Hacker section at the end of each chapter, which includes tips and exercises for you to test out.
What will 2020 bring?
I’ll be running a seminar in December on how to get the most out of 2020. It’s an opportunity to take time out, reflect on the year that has been and set some goals for next year using a structured and proven approach. This first edition (there'll be a 2nd one in January) is being organised by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) and you can get full details here. You’ll need to hurry though as they’ve just informed me that there are only a few places left.
Are you interested in Personal Development?
If you’ve been thinking that you should do some Personal Development in 2020 then you might like to join my Personal Development Meetup Community. We’re having a social event on the 10th December to celebrate our 10th Birthday and you’re invited! I’m actually quite chuffed that I’ve been able to keep this growing Community of over 800 people alive for so long. It must be the oxygen!
Clarity of purpose and consistent effort can be very useful sometimes! =:o)
Please register your interest in the 10th Birthday Party here.
May your timing be perfect this week…
What's the difference between a good joke and a bad joke? Timing
The future, the present and the past walked into a bar. Things got a little tense.
I'm great at multitasking. I can waste time, be unproductive, and procrastinate all at once.
