Clear your Inner Clutter to Achieve More at Work
Are you constantly searching for ways to become more productive and get more done in less time? Do you look for strategies to organise your e-mails, hold shorter and fewer meetings and get through your piles of paperwork?
And in spite of this, do you still avoid getting down to things and resist doing stuff?
In his book “Inner Productivity” Chris Edgar describes how, even though you know all the “rules” of time management, uncomfortable thoughts and feelings get in the way of applying them, or at least applying them effectively and consistently.
He asserts that time management and organisation strategies usually fail to address the biggest obstacles to productivity – our minds and bodies.
I recently interviewed Chris about his approach to “Inner Productivity” and found that he uses practical techniques to help you focus, relax, stop procrastinating and generally get better results and more satisfaction. The thing that surprised me most is that you can use these techniques where-ever you happen to be. No need to wait to get to the gym or yoga class, no requirement for a quiet private room and an hour to practice meditation, you can tap into your inner productivity while sitting at your desk.
You can put your questions directly to Chris as he’ll be dropping in on the blog to answer them and to respond to comments.
Meanwhile I would love to know what you do that helps you get into the mental and emotional state that allows you to be most productive at work.
