Personal Productivity Secrets

Julie is an expert in adult learning and in this episode we looked at the challenge of time management training which so often consists of tell, tell and more telling. Should an instructor just hand out detailed practices and sit back and wait while the magic happens, or is there a better approach to instruct learners. She's a fascinating guest who has a wealth of knowledge.

In fact, she was teaching with such gusto that I had to build a short glossary of terms she used:

Hyperbolic discounting - This is a concept from behavioral economics that describes the tendency to discount a reward more the longer it will be delayed.

Cognitive load - This it the idea that people have a limited cognitive capacity for information or mental activity at any given time, based on the limits of working (or short-term) memory. If you exceed that capacity, the person can't process or retain additional information.

Cognitive bias - there are many different types of cognitive biases which lead to faulty decisions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases) but many of them are due to shortcuts in how we understand and process information.

Implementation intentions - Implementation intentions are a way to create behaviors for yourself by mental associating a trigger with a response (If x happens, I will do y), and are based on the work of research Peter Gollwitzer.

in 2013, Dr. Melanie Wilson spent almost the full year testing one new productivity approach or method each week. She documented the results on her blog in a fascinating journey through some of the best ideas available for improving time-based productivity. Tune in as I interview her on this unique adventure and then visit her blog at Psychowith6.com

In December 2013, I was interviewed by Jacob Paulsen of 12booksgroup.com, a reading club that tackles one business book per month. They discuss the contents on Goodreads, and invite authors in to interact with their members.

While their interviews are accessed by members-only, he was kind enough to share the podcast with us here at 2Time Labs.

We looked at the ideas underlying Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure, and why I chose to write a business fable as opposed to a traditional book.

Judith Kolberg is a pioneer in the field of chronic disorganization and in this interview she shares the key insights from her book - Organizing in the Era of Endless. Listen in to learn how to manage the excesses and downside of endless information, interruption, work, and stuff, while reclaiming your time.

What are the different styles in which people think about their use of time? Tony Murphy of Time Diagnostics has invented an approach to giving each of us some insight into one of 5 time perspectives that adults tend to use each and every day. Tune in to hear how his tool can be used in a team environment to improve the productivity of the entire team. Once again, he reinforces the idea: one size doesn't fit all.

What is the difference between trying to manage time, struggling to manage stuff and managing "time demands?" A time demand is an individual commitment to complete an action in the future - but that definition is just the start. I share all that there is to know (at this time) about one of the key discoveries behind the work we do at 2Time Labs.

Doing a diagnosis of your current time management methods is the natural next step if you don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions for your personal productivity. Join Val and Jayne from Queensland, Australia as they return to talk about the power of starting with insight about what you really need at the start of your efforts to become more productive.

June 10, 2013 12:59 PM PDT

In this interview with Val McDougall and Jayne Jennings of Save-Time.org and Pink Shoe Power, we explore the reasons why no single time management solutions fits everyone, and why we need custom solutions. We discover why we need to provide methods for learners to improve their particular, individual skills, even as they take charge of finding their own way.

It's all about following the principles of Time Management 2.0 which are built on andragogy - the study of adult learning.
