Killing Time: 11 Ways to Ruin Your Productivity [PRESENTATION]
By Daniel Zeevi
Knowing how to stay productive is key to leading a balanced and successful life. In our daily lives, we constantly face tons of responsibilities and to-do’s, and by nature we associate production with doing as many things as possible. And doing as many things as possible requires multitasking, or so we believe…
Well a study at the British Institute of Psychiatry has shown that just checking your email while performing another creative task can lower your IQ by ten points. To put that in perspective, consider this: that’s equivalent to staying up 36 hours straight with no sleep!
But checking email throughout the day has almost become second nature in our busy lives. It’s actually pretty benign compared to some of the other tasks we try to simultaneously juggle. Between our cell phones, social media and other services we’re using, the steady stream of notifications and alerts can become super distracting.
So in this presentation we’ll take a look at proven techniques to:
- Decrease your IQ
- Never get anything done
- Increase your stress levels
- Get completely overwhelmed
- Earn less money
- Get yourself fired
- Run your business into the ground
