Active CEO Performance Tip

SINGLE-task Not Multi-task For Productivity – If you try and multi-task, our brains move too fast, we lose focus and take on too much. In fact, the brain can’t actually multi-task and what it actually does is task switching. If you are task switching to often or too quickly, it slows down your response time and prevents you from completing tasks quickly, if at all. Break down your work into single tasks and block your time accordingly to the highest priority tasks. First, write down all your tasks. Second, prioritise your tasks according to low, medium and high priority. Third, schedule time specifically for high priority tasks first, in your calendar. Then delegate all medium and low priorities where possible. Plan your day so that you can single task to get the best productivity and performance as a leader.

“It is hard to plan for things that might not happen and things that you just don’t like to think about, but have to do, whether you initiate or not.” Mike Nishi talks about crisis management, on the active CEO Podcast.

OWN Your OWN Freedom Craig Johns Breaking The CEO Code

Craig Johns talks about OWN Your OWN FREEDOM, the first of the 8 ways to own your OWN Influence.

OWN Your OWN FREEDOM

Find the passion, happiness & direction in your life!

Your passion can be anything in the world that challenges you, intrigues you and motivates you in life. It’s not about doing something you love so that it doesn’t feel like work, a passion is something that puts you to work.

Happiness is a feeling that occurs when you know your life is great and you just can’t help smiling. People feel happiness for different reasons, have you found your happiness or are you still in the pursuit of happiness?

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything. What is your reason for living, your purpose in life, and as Simon Sinek says “What is your why”? If it all starts with why, then what is the direction you are taking in life?

OWN Your OWN FREEDOM

Three questions to ask yourself in OWN Your OWN FREEDOM

  1. What makes you come alive?
  2. What are your innate strengths?
  3. Where do you add the greatest value?

If you are still struggling to identify your direction, there a 3 deeper questions that will bring you clarity, which are in this podcast episode.
