014: Work Smarter in a Hyper-connected World
f you’ve ever hidden in a loo cubicle at work to collect your thoughts, this episode is for YOU. Maybe you feel constantly overwhelmed and fried. No wonder. Apparently, we switch between 37 different tasks every hour. Maybe your mobile phone is the first thing you kiss in the morning. It's your companion at meals. It's even in bed with you. Being constantly accessible isn't making any of us more productive, even as technology advances. In fact, productivity trailed off six years ago, in spite of all the snazzy new gizmos and applications. If you recognise the madness of hyper-connectivity and overwhelm in your own life (but can't quit and move to a meditation retreat in Bali), don't worry, there's still hope. My guest today is Colette Heneghan. Colette was a successful account manager for a global telecoms company that helped to introduce the Blackberry - and the joys of being accessible 24-7 - to our lives way back when. She'd grab a sandwich on the hoof; or be glued to her desk till her legs felt cold and dead; or not see blue sky for days at a time. Nowadays, Colette runs Optimum Living, a wellbeing consultancy that helps companies find ways to allow their employees to thrive in the workplace. We talk about making changes that can have a real cumulative impact on your wellbeing. We cover: Some clues that you might be approaching 'the brick wall' Common traits found in high-performers' working lives 2 purchases to kick-start your wellness (one's very retro!) What an optimised morning looks like How to gain back 2 hours of your day Using "Airplane" mode as a productivity tool Colette is a fan of micro-changes, which includes getting outside (and out of the loo cubicle) for your 5-minute breather. Sounds much better to me... Join us! Links:
