2012 Ideas for better Productivity

Bright Ideas

I regularly draw the ire of my employees when I tell them that email is not work. I’m poorly wording my message, but the intent is clear. Constantly checking for new emails, and responding to them stops one from being productive. Though I’ve known this for a while, someone from Harvard is now backing me up! Dorie Clark of HBR (Harvard Business Review) gives us 5 habits to help us in 2012. Full article here.

The quick hit list (though I recommend reading the full article)

  1. Don’t check for new emails more often than every 90 minutes
  2. Don’t continue to perform a habit, just because
  3. Dispose of things which are no longer adding value
  4. Make sure the work you win, is the work you want
  5. Keep it simple!

    Thanks for coining the word Parallel Entre – which most of the VCs or iosner industry pioneer term as confused lot. As a First time entrepreneurwe are juggling with lot of things Software development, gaming, animation, GPS, video streaming,healthcare games etc., as a Start up because we are having varied interest group in the new company.But each group has its focus clearly written all over the place. For an outsider, we are a company doing too many things. But for us, each group is company in itself and a close knit one.As you said, we definitely come up with lot of ideas but we have a team discussion which critics on the negatives and positives of the idea. Then we know where we stand. As of now its working fine for us. Maybe each company has its own way to work around the thoughts
