    Takeaways: Reflection is key to doing good work, but it takes space, effort and a willingness to confront unpleasant things. Checking in emotionally (how do I feel) is essentially a way of growing your emotional intelligence.  To properly plan, you need to do two things. First, create a clear goal – what needs to be done. Then, create a clear plan for achieving that goal – how it should be done. Space for doing is about avoiding distractions and learning to prioritize.

Checking in emotionally (how do I feel) is essentially a way of growing your emotional intelligence.  To properly plan, you need to do two things. First, create a clear goal – what needs to be done. Then, create a clear plan for achieving that goal – how it should be done. Space for doing is about avoiding distractions and learning to prioritize. Studies show that CEOs only get around 28 minutes per day of uninterrupted work time and that the average worker has an eight-second attention span! For every interruption, it takes ten minutes to return to your previous level of concentration. That’s because distractions aren’t just productivity-killers; they’re also a source of dopamine, the addictive neurochemical that your brain releases when you do something pleasurable. Receiving emails and text messages triggers little hits of dopamine, so it’s no wonder millennials are likely to open an incoming email within 90 seconds. Leadership is about them! Not me!  Schedule meetings weekly with yourself to focus on productivity and strategy.

    MY LAST BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020! :))) I read this book thanks to Blinkist. I liked it, because the author has summarised 4 vital practices for a balanced and good life ALL IN ONE book! Very handy! I rate it 3 stars, because I’ve already read similar ideas in SO many other non-fiction books... But if you’re a beginner, or you just want to buy the physical copy of one book, with all 4 ideas in one place, then this is for you!

I liked it, because the author has summarised 4 vital practices for a balanced and good life ALL IN ONE book! Very handy! I rate it 3 stars, because I’ve already read similar ideas in SO many other non-fiction books... But if you’re a beginner, or you just want to buy the physical copy of one book, with all 4 ideas in one place, then this is for you! The key message in these blinks: If you want to grow and be the best you can be, you need to make space for that growth to happen. This space needs to be focused on self-awareness, willingness to learn, interpersonal relationships, productivity, accountability and delivering consistently great work. Creating this space is hard work and requires honest reflection on your weaknesses and experiences that may be difficult to confront. But if anything is worth the trouble, it’s your self-improvement, finding your true purpose in life and making the most out of what little time you have. Actionable advice: Need to relax? Try square breathing. This technique is used by yoga practitioners, Navy SEALs and executives alike in order to calm down and focus. It's called square breathing since it's a four by four structure. As you breathe in, you count to four, then you hold on to that breath for four seconds. Then you breathe out for four seconds, and pause for four seconds before breathing in and starting the cycle over again. What to read next: Essentialism, by Greg McKeown Create Space is partially about prioritization and how it’s the key to productivity and delivering your best work. But learning how to prioritize is such a tricky business that it’s really a topic unto itself. This is why we recommend Essentialism, which dives deep into the murky waters of figuring out what’s most important as well as identifying and eliminating the rubbish that’s slowing you down. If you want the supreme satisfaction of being more efficient and doing more with less, check out the blinks to Essentialism.
