When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Dan Pink
Episode OutlineIf you want to maximize your efficiency: learn about your circadian rhythm and schedule your days accordingly.Our day has a U-shaped curve of efficiency and happinessOur life has a U-shaped curve when it comes to happinessApplications & Tips to Maximize Your Days_____SummaryUnderstanding Your Circadian Rhythm (AKA Chronotype)Understand what your circadian rhythm is because it will affect how productive (or unproductive) you are during certain times of the day. “Larks”, “Owls” & “Third Birds” Test: http://www.cet-surveys.com/index.php?sid=61524 Things that are impacted When you are most primed for analytical versus creative tasks. The U-Shaped Daily ProductivityWe start the day that we are very productive in the morning. Then we hit a trough in the afternoon and eventually we rebound in the early evening. Depending on your Chronotype, the hours of this U-shaped can change but still stay the same. There is a time for art & critical thinking… From a psychological point of view, there are times of the day which are poor for critical thinking tasks are actually great for artistic pursuits. This is because our neocortex is less engaged and we can “let go” more easily. When do you think you would do a better analytical task? Creative task? Which is which actually depends on your chronotype… The scary implication for healthcare… Doctors and nurses make mathematically more mistakes during the troughs of the day and are much more likely to be sloppy, so if you have a procedure, do it in the morning. Life has a U-shaped Curve For Happiness (importance of mid-points)It does debunk the idea of a “mid-life” crisis, but does emphasize the powerful psychological effect “being at the mid-point” has on everything from project teams to basketball games.Interesting findings about mid-points: We remember beginning and endings the most. If the ending of a colonoscopy is not painful, we remember it as less painful even if the total experience was longer and more painful (as compared to a colonoscopy that didn’t end well). What’s also surprising is that most people relax their standards during the middle and that people even judge others less harshly for the middle. (If you’re a president, you should focus on the last year because that’s what matters the most.) Mid-points are great motivators…and it might be even best to be losing a little bit Basketball example…teams are more likely to win if they are down by 1 at halftime instead than if they are tied, have a 1-point lead, or 2-point lead Summary: Applications & Tips to Maximize Your DayIdentify your circadian typeTake breaks & to make them especially helpful: Staying tech-free on your break dramatically improves recovery. Taking a break with someone beats taking a break alone. Sun on your skin & green and nature out perform breaks without them For what it’s worth, the company DeskTime calculated 17 mins of break for every 52 mins of work as a golden ratio End on a high note People prefer endings on a high note even when the overall sum is lower than the option with a poorer ending but higher overall scores. End your day with 30 minutes doing the following: write what you
