30 days of getting result

Работа в бюро требует хорошей организации себя. У меня с этим проблема, поэтому приходится работать по ночам. Загрузку планирую закрытыми списками, как Форстер учил, однако, список задач закрывается не каждый день. Не сделываю.

Серёжа Кулинкович рекомендовал почитать «Getting Results the Agile Way». Книга большая и водянистая, поэтому я забил. Но почитал руководство к действию в виде брошюры, из которой выписал некоторые мысли.

Три достижения в день:

Daily Outcomes is a way to use three stories to drive your day. Before you start your day, simply identify the three results or outcomes you want to accomplish for the day, and work backwards from that. An outcome can be anything from, “I had a great lunch,” to “I enjoyed my day,” to “I kicked arse in my presentation.” What’s important is that you’re jumping ahead to the end result. I like to think of this practice as taking a few mindful minutes to avoid going on a mindless march.

The real beauty of Daily Outcomes is that you can wake up any day and simply ask yourself, “What are the three things I really want to accomplish today?” That’s it.

Границы и бюджет:

…the most important pattern I’ve seen across people that get more of what they want from life, is that they fix time for eating, sleeping, and working out — and everything else fits around that. They never rob themselves here — it’s their foundation and platform for all results in their life.

…time is a budget, just like your money. You only have so much. You can spend it wisely, or you can let it rule you, or you can waste it. Time is a unique resource that you don’t get back and choosing how you spend your discretionary time is what ultimately changes your life. If you want to spend more time in something, then make more time for something. The way to do so is to set smart limits on the things you know you need to do. Trade your time by design vs. by default.

Инвестирование в личную силу:

To look at it with another lens, many people mistake the path of weaknesses as the growth or opportunity path. What they don’t realize is not only are they robbing from their energy, their best contribution, and their sense of fulfillment, but they are taking away from their greatest source of growth.


When a starter and finisher pair up ... look out. Great things happen. The fastest way to suck your life force out of anyone is to always play the “finisher” role when you’re a starter, or always play a starter role when you’re a finisher.

Сортировка входящих задач:

You can triage an incoming action item to either do it, queue it, schedule it, or delegate it:

  1. Do it if now is the time: it’s the next best thing for you to do; now is the most
    opportunistic time; or it will cost you more pain, time or effort to do it later.
  2. Queue it, by adding it to your queue if it’s something you need to get done, but
    now is not the right time. A queue is simply a list of action items.
  3. Schedule it by adding it to your calendar if you need a block of time to get the
    work done. Only add things to your calendar if you truly need a reminder or if you really need to block off a chunk of time to work on it. Remember that if you schedule it, it will happen, but if you don’t, it won’t. If it’s really important, then make time for it. If it’s just something to do “later,” and it won’t really happen, then just let it go with skill.
  4. Delegate it if it’s something that should be done by somebody else and it makes sense to do so, and you have that option. When you delegate, try to match it to another person’s learning opportunity or passion. (There’s a difference between delegating and dumping.)
