For Productivity: Stop Doing These 9 Things

Stop Doing Stuff that Doesn’t Serve 168 hours in a week.  24 hours in a day.  I haven’t done the math to work out how many in a year or a lifetime, but however large the number, it is still finite.  It is limited.  We get so much, and no more.  This leaves you with […]

6 Key Characteristics of “A” Players

Everyone wants to be Bruce Lee, but few want to put in the 10,000 (or more) hours of practice and preparation.  It is only when the bar is held high that we can consistently put in the practice and push our skills to the highest levels. What makes for an ‘A’ Player? The simplest possible […]

UnProductive 101: Paving the Cow Path

When I worked at Accenture, we were often in the business of identifying the existing business processes and then analysing how we would enable these processes with technology. Sometimes it was putting a mobile phone purchase process onto Siebel CRM, sometimes it was putting insurance sales onto SAP ERP. A senior partner used to say […]

I summarised my 11 Jedi Productivity Posts series in a short visual presentation: The presentation was awarded Slideshare “Top Presentation of the Day”.  Thanks to all the “like”s ;-) The full Jedi Productivity Series:

The 4 Arts of Self Sabotage

The equation for human performance is the following: Performance = Potential – Self-Sabotage That is it. You achieve not what your boss lets you, not what the others let you… you achieve what you don’t screw up for yourself. In the years since I first wrote this equation up in a class and people said […]

Do you know how to use the internet?

I heard this question asked to a full conference room recently: “Do you know how to use the internet?” All hands went up.  Everybody in the room felt that yes, they know how to use the internet. Then, the speaker asked a second question: “Ok, show me what you have created?” “Show me what you […]

Leading Teams: The 5 Styles of Managing People

I was teaching a seminar recently and a young film producer told me “I am not a good manager”.  I asked him why he believed this.  He described a recent series of disasters that he had overseen with his team. I asked him “who are the people on your team?”. He said his cousin helped […]

Why is it a Must for You?

Most people know what they would have to do if they really wanted to get where they want to go. But, they don’t get there. Most don’t even start. To Must or Not To Must If it is not a must for you, it is not going to happen. What is the holy grail between […]

Accepting Feedback

At the end of every course I teach at IESE Business School, all participants give extensive feedback on their experience of the course, the facilities… and on my role as a teacher. When the summarized feedback reaches me a couple of weeks later, I open the pdf in a state of nervous tension.  I am preparing […]

What will future jobs look like?

Economist Andrew McAfee suggests that, yes, probably, droids will take our jobs — or at least the kinds of jobs we know now. In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them. Are you Bill or Ted? There is a big and […]

Rich Sense ~ CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP & DAILY LIFE

As a follower of Jesus Christ I believe we can make adjustments in our life which will give us a richer experience living out each day. Even if you are not a follower of Christ there are shifts that can be made to improve your life experience. These shifts are intentional internal adjustments in mind and spirit, though small, each can make a big difference in how we do life. This is all about "shifting towards the richer side of life". Who of us would not want to live a more richer, fuller life. It is possible. I invite you to travel with me on my journey to the "richer side of life". Blessings, Richard Armstrong
