    Cal Newport of the Study Hacks blog shares pros and cons of bullet journaling and what he’d do to improve upon it.

  4. 134: Unfu*k Yourself | Gary John Bishop

    At times, we tend to get into our own heads and become our own worst enemies. We often write off anyone who happens to disagree with us, puts us down in any way, and label them as "haters." But it’s our natural tendency - especially as high achieving men - to be our harshest critics. It’s valuable at times and drives us to do great things and, other times, it creates unnecessary barriers to our success. My guest today, Gary John Bishop, author of Unfu*ck Yourself joins be to talk about how to redefine yourself by becoming unrealistic, how to uncover the narratives we tell ourselves, the difference between knowing something and being aware of something, and how to get out of your head and into your life.

  6. The Basics of Calendar Management (Part 2 of 2) | Manager Tools

    This is the second of our casts that describe our recommendations about calendar management.

    Last week, we covered some basics of calendar management, the most important of which was that effective managers think about managing their priorities a WEEK at a time - thinking in terms of weeks is the most effective way to stay strategic, and therefore effective.

    We then covered our first, and perhaps most surprising point - Family First.

    Simple in practice … schedule time for your family ON YOUR CALENDAR first.

    And then give THAT commitment the same level of focus as your other priorities.

    This week, we cover our remaining points relative to managing your calendar …

    Schedule time for email

    Nail down your strategic objectives

    Block out One on Ones

    Schedule time for a weekly network building lunch

  7. The Basics of Calendar Management (Part 1 of 2) | Manager Tools

    This cast describes the first of our recommendations about calendar management.

    We spend a lot of time talking to executive clients about how they spend their time, and how they manage their priorities through their calendars.

    Several times over the past couple of years we’ve talked about how when we start coaching an executive, we ask for two things immediately: an accounting of what they consider their priorities, and a print out of their calendar.

    They almost NEVER match, except with CEOs and COOs.

    If you’re a thinking manager, you’re not asking, "why?" but rather, "what can I do to avoid that?"

    There are a few simple rules that get most effective executives (thank you Mr. Drucker) started off well, and they start with thinking a week at a time.

  8. Too Full Calendar Solutions - Meeting Attendance Delegation - Part 2 | Manager Tools

    The conclusion of our guidance on how to delegate meeting attendance, to address a chronically overbooked calendar.

    One of the most common refrains we hear from managers regarding their inability to make changes is that changes take time, and they have no time. You’re not alone if you have back to back to back meetings all day, and cherish a rare 2 hour time frame with, inexplicably, no meetings.

    But too many of us believe we ourselves have to attend every meeting we accept onto our calendar. But you can delegate meeting attendance, and effective managers do, all the time.

  9. Too Full Calendar Solutions - Back To Back Meetings, Part 1 | Manager Tools

  10. The Myth of the Working Manager | Manager Tools

    If you think you’re a "working manager", and that’s harder somehow, you’re wrong.

    Lots of managers claim "I’m a working manager." It’s a reason to suggest that they don’t have time to manage. But "The Working Manager" is a myth, and there are all kinds of solutions to solve the problem of priority management.
