The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics
In today's conversation, I am joined by Dr. Dan Willingham, a memory expert with a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Harvard. Dan's new book Outsmart Your Brain (which we discuss today) will change your life. While the book is catered to K-16 learners (for example, it includes chapters on “how to take notes,” “how to listen to a lecture,” “how to read hard books,” and “how to take tests”) trust me when I say this book is for you and everyone you know. It is fascinating and will help you with any presentation you may give or meeting you will be in moving forward. Trust me, you're gonna love this. A little more about Dan: His work has appeared in the Washington Post, The New York Times, and many other publications, and he is the author of several books – his writing has appeared in 18 languages! In 2017 he was appointed by President Obama to serve as a Member of the National Board for Education Sciences. Whether you want to be a better learner yourself or if you have kids (including college students) in your life whom you want to help be successful, this episode and book are for you. I can't wait to dive into this one because there is so much great stuff. Show Notes: [00:43] In today's conversation, I am joined by Dr. Dan Willingham. Dan earned his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Harvard University in 1990. [03:03] Dan shares about himself, his background, and the work he does. He was trained as a cognitive psychologist. [04:04] He shares his transition from basic researcher to applied researcher. [07:02] Often, we assume people know that thing that we know so we miss key things when presenting. That means they don't get value from your talk. [08:41] There are things we know we should do that we find difficult to implement. Sometimes we really don't know what is optimal to do. We tend to do things in the moment that we feel are working and are not that difficult. (But often, the harder/counterintuitive thing will make a much bigger impact.) [11:16] Does cramming work? Dan says, “kind of.” It depends on what your goals are. If you do not care about remembering something in the long term then crowding it all in right before you need to perform is actually fine. [12:50] The only way to ensure that you remember things in the long term is if your learning happens over time rather than all crammed together. [15:42] If you are trying to master a new skill or a new topic and you feel like you need to wait to start until you have more than small bits of time, don't wait! The data shows this is actually optimal for learning and retention. [18:2326] Creating that consistent study or work habit by time and not by task is very important. [21:04] We all procrastinate. It is a natural tendency. [22:37] The key thing is you have to give yourself permission to stop if you want to. [24:26] The night of sleep is important in consolidating the memories that were formed during the day. If you don't get much sleep or you get low-quality sleep you are tampering with the learning that you put so much time into the previous day. [25:40] Your intention or your desire to learn contributes nothing to whether or not you will learn something. There are lots of things we want to remember but don't. [27:26] Memory loves meaning. That is the main way we remember. [29:05] You draw memory out the same way that it went in. [30:53] Memories are going to be queued by thoughts or by things in the environment later. The way you are going to be able to draw memories out most successfully is when the queue is a good match for the way you thought about the memory at the time you were trying to remember it. [32:51] When you are storing something away, think to yourself, “How am I likely later to try and remember this?” and make that part of the way it becomes retrievable. [35:48] How do you organize 94 tips in one book? He chose to sort them by task. It is organized by things you would do that entail learning (how to read hard books, how to take notes, etc). [38:45] When there is a hierarchical organization in speeches you are expected to make connections among the different things that you are hearing. Because it is not a narrative it is difficult to make those connections. [41:45] You want to reframe to highlight what you enjoy instead of what is making you procrastinate. Looking at it in this way helps you overcome that. [44:43] Allocate time to different tasks to help you get to the tasks that you tend to procrastinate on. Do the hard task first. [46:40] It is not that what you are doing now is ineffective. It is that it can be slightly tweaked to be significantly more effective. [48:31] What's the simplest tip in the book? Some data shows that chewing gum helps you to focus for 20 minutes. Give it a try if you like gum! [50:328] Melina's closing thoughts [51:39] In understanding how your own brain is wired to learn as well as others, and then how to "outsmart it" every step of the way is pure gold.

RealPositiveGirl - Weekly Encouragement & Mental Health
Show Notes:When we think of being productive, it's often the picture of someone going above and beyond what is asked and sometimes making others look bad. And not on purpose, of course, because those types of thoughts are only attributed to mindsets that see and do life through their insecurities.Having the focus of being productive is for everyone. We just need to know how to tap into it, which is what we will chat about in a bit. But first, here are a few reasons WHY productivity is important to our daily lives.When we are more productive, we can focus on our priorities associated with accomplishing our goals & actually get to the finish line. It's taking the time to be clear about your goals and using your time wisely while being productive that helps it all work together.Often being productive can help reduce stress because you've taken the time to outline tasks & to-do's in your life, as well as allocate your time enough to not have to worry about what needs to happen.If you're someone that struggles with discipline, becoming better at productivity will only increase your ability to be self-disciplined because you have to take the initiative to do the work, whether you want to or not. And if you are currently working on discipline, you'll get better at being productive along the way.The last reason is my favorite because it aligns well with my brain. When we work on becoming more productive, we also become more creative because we find new ways to get things done. Sometimes this means done more efficiently, too. But you get the opportunity to go about things in a new way that could be more fun & enjoyable.Let's get into the list of tips I have for you that will help you become more productive in your everyday life:Plan Out Your Day Make lists of your tasks.Allocate time, even in a flexible way.Be careful with multitasking.Create a Priority List from Your Plan Highlight the Urgent & Important (have to get done) TasksConsider what's next based on how impactful getting it done will beBe realistic about how much time you haveMake Bigger Tasks Into Smaller TasksCreate Goals Reasonable GoalsSpecific GoalsWork on Time Management Skills Eliminate DistractionsReview how well your follow-through is going in the middle of the day to maybe readjust your plan.Enforce Personal Boundaries Say ‘No' More OftenTake BreaksDon't Be Too Influenced By Others Know who you should and should not listen to when creating your plans, goals & implementing those things.Celebrate Your Milestones & AccomplishmentsSupport the showWatch the Video Version of RPG: https://www.youtube.com/@realpositivegirl/podcastsBuy the Planner on AMAZON!: https://amzn.to/3WwthT2Visit me on Instagram or TikTok: @sabrinajoyperozzoTwitter: @realsabrinajoyEmail Me: firstname.lastname@example.org Sign up for my weekly newsletter https://www.sabrinajoy.com/newsletterCashApp Show Donations: $sabrinaperozzo

Being more productive doesn't mean doing more. It's all about making sure you're doing things in the right order. Listen as Richard and Kylie share their tips and tricks on mastering productivity, the most important facets of your marketing that you should focus on for extra leverage, and maximizing existing technologies to make your work easier and smoother. Tune in to this new episode of The Conscious Marketer podcast — How To Be More Productive with Richard Taubinger and Kylie Slavik. Key points covered in this episode: [00:01:31] Focus on these three things. Allocate time weekly to create ongoing list-nurturing content. Also, have evergreen content for lead generation. Set up models, systems, and programs. [00:03:56] Engage in sales conversations. Learn how to sell by talking to people who know how to. The knowledge will be worth years of study! [00:08:56] Write compelling copy by doing these. Take care of yourself physically. Work backward. Begin with the end in mind so you know exactly where you're going. [00:13:58] Use time blocking and voice-transcription tools. This works if you're not into lists and writing. But if you love lists, have a running list. Break them down into days, months, weeks, and years. [00:19:42] Organize your inbox. Take note of the people you need to respond to. Unsubscribe from unnecessary things. Have a separate email for receiving marketing. [00:21:34] Use templates and AI. Don't feel threatened by the latter! They'll never replace people but are merely tools for making your work more efficient. [00:27:48] The more productive you are, the more you can help others. Be open to switching things up and improving. This is all in the name of service to those who need you! --------------- The Conscious Business Movement is all about building a community of conscious leaders, creators, and entrepreneurs.

HerBusiness - Insights for Women in Business
Quick question: How many hours per week should you work ON your business as a business owner? This is an excellent question because it can be easy to get caught up in the weeds, spending all your time on low-leverage activities and needing more time working on your business and high-leverage activities. I get it. So, how do you spend your time so that you don't feel like a hamster on a wheel, working hard but not seeing progress on your big goals? It starts with having the right mindset. Your mindset impacts the time you spend working ON your business. You shift how you show up in your business and where you focus. In this episode, we explore mindset, but first, let's look at the difference between working ON your business and IN your business. Let's start with Working IN the Business What might you be doing: Providing Customer Service: Answering customer inquiries, resolving complaints, and addressing any issues with products or services. Performing Administrative Tasks: Managing payroll, overseeing day-to-day operations, and managing schedules. Producing products or delivering services: This involves performing the core tasks that the business is built around, such as designing products, manufacturing goods, or providing services to customers. Marketing and Sales: -> Creating and executing marketing campaigns. -> Managing social media accounts. -> Engaging with customers to drive sales. Managing Employees or Suppliers: This involves hiring, training, and managing employees, as well as addressing any HR issues that arise. What does it mean to Work ON the Business? Here are some examples: Developing a strategic plan for the business: This might include setting long-term goals, identifying key performance indicators (KPIs), and creating an action plan for achieving those goals. For example, every year inside HerBusiness, Members set their annual goals and determine their critical projects. Then, every month they narrowly focus on the goals they need to achieve that month. This structure and habit of having a strategic plan help them have clarity and focus about what they put their attention to. Analysing market trends and customer needs: You might research industry trends, identify market gaps, and gather customer feedback to make strategic decisions about the direction of the business. Right now, we're analysing the results of a survey where we asked women about their mindset and how it helps or inhibits their success. It's fascinating and gives us many insights that will allow us to develop resources to help these women; this is a high-leverage activity that fits inside the idea of working ON your business. Developing and refining systems and processes: This might include creating procedures for onboarding new employees, streamlining workflow, and identifying areas where automation or outsourcing could be beneficial. Every hour you spend on this type of work reaps the rewards for a long time. You create the system once, and it gets used time and again! Reviewing financial performance: This involves analysing financial statements, creating budgets, and identifying opportunities for cost savings or revenue growth. As a business owner, making time each month to look at your financials is SO important. And, if you're not a numbers person, that is an excellent reason to have a bookkeeper do the numbers for you so that you can look over them. And ultimately, you want to be able to read your reports and determine how you move forward. Do you want more of a margin or to charge higher prices? Do you want to decrease expenses or invest in a new contractor? You need to spend the time to review your financial performance to make those decisions confidently. Networking and building relationships: This might include attending industry conferences, meeting with potential partners or investors, and connecting with other business owners to stay current on industry trends and opportunities. The HerBusiness Network is where women in Australia come to connect with other female entrepreneurs who are also growing and scaling a business. So, the time invested each month to attend a Roundtable event, a Masterclass, or to engage with others in our online group is worth so much because every day, here is what we see come out of these connections and relationships -> Women are getting new clients -> Reaching more people -> Doing collaborations -> Sharing resources -> Finding suppliers -> And so much more… When you're working on your business in this way, you are investing in the future of your business, not just taking care of today. These "On your business tasks" are what I call high-leverage tasks: And by that, I mean the types of tasks that you reap the rewards for a long time when you put an hour of work in today. While working IN the business is necessary to keep the day-to-day operations running smoothly, working ON the business is essential for long-term growth and success. By prioritising tasks that focus on strategic planning, system development, and market analysis, business owners can position themselves for sustained growth and profitability. So, how do we do that? It starts with your mindset. Let go and start to delegate: As women, we're often used to being in control and handling everything ourselves, but trying to do everything can be exhausting! Plus, there's always more to do than there is time. That's why getting the CEO mindset firmly in place is so important. Try delegating tasks to others on your team, and trust them to handle things as well as you would. They might even do a better job! Or, outsource a project … and get the help that takes you out of having to do the lower-level tasks. For example, say you have a launch coming up for a promotion. Your time is better spent making connections, building relationships, growing your audience, and connecting with your prospect than doing all the tech and the social images and scheduling every post. Keep the big picture in mind: It's easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day details of running a business, but try to take a step back and look at the big picture. What are your long-term goals? What is your highest priority 12-month goal? That is the prize that you want to keep your eyes on. The more you spend time each week working towards it, the more likely you're going to hit that goal. So what can you do today to help you get closer to that goal? Keep growing and learning: There's always room for growth and improvement. And sometimes, we can be our own worst enemies when it comes to mindset. So keep reading business books, attending conferences, and seeking mentorship opportunities to inspire and motivate yourself. Consistency is so crucial. You may need to get it right first, but keep your commitment to work more ON your business. By embracing these mindset shifts, you can position yourself for success in the long term, freeing up time and energy to focus on high-leverage work and strategic planning that will help your business thrive. So, if you're not spending enough time ON your business… here's where I recommend you start. Allocate 10% of your time to working ON your business. That's a great place to start, and you can build from there. So, if you're working 40 hours, that's four hours. Now, here's the key. Like the examples I cited earlier, you want to lock those into your schedule and make them non-negotiable. Choose a time when you won't get interrupted by busy work. For example, I do high-leverage tasks first thing in the morning when I'm fresh and before the office opens works well. The other place it works well is if I clear the day of all appointments and plonk those hours into a clear day.

Entrepreneurs have demands on their capital and reserve requirements that most others do not. Thinking about these in concert with personal needs and requirements requires a different approach. In this week's episode, Jarrod segments capital reserve requirements into the following categories. He goes over why each piece of capital is being held in reserve and provides helpful examples and strategies for each one. Business 1. Business working capital needed within 90 days 2. Business reserve capital that could be needed in 90-180 days 3. Business reserves needed more than 180 days into the future Personal 1. Personal cash needed within 180 days 2. Personal reserves that cover debt and expenses between 180-365 days 3. Known big ticket items needed one-to-three years in the future The theme of cash and capital reserves for your business and family is to forecast what you will need and match the investments to that need.

One Minute Retirement Tip with Ashley
This week's theme on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is: 10 Things You Must Do Before Retirement - Part 2 Today, I'm talking about re-allocating your portfolio to match your risk tolerance and income needs. One of the main problems I see with someone's investment portfolio as they approach retirement is that it doesn't match up with their age and stage in life. Sometimes it's too conservatively invested, hampering growth, but most of the time the portfolio is invested far too aggressively, sometimes with 80% in stocks or more. This can be disastrous if not fixed in the years leading up to retirement. With losses in many portfolios exceeding 15-20% in 2022, this should be instructive & motivating in helping you to re-allocate your portfolio prior to retirement. Step 1 - getting to the right allocation before retirement. What is the right allocation? The right balance varies based on a number of factors, but for someone approaching retirement, it should be around 50-65% in stocks for most people. (age-weighted AA cheat sheet) Step 2 - focusing the portfolio on income - dividend paying and growing stocks and bonds that generate income. Thankfully with interest rates heading higher, bonds investments that actually pay decent income are easier to find. It's very important that your portfolio is re-allocated before retirement so you don't suffer big losses in the couple years before and the couple years after retirement. This could force you to work longer, if a quarter of your nest egg is wiped out in a significant down market, and the more in stocks you have, the worse the drop will be and the longer it will take for your portfolio to recover, potentially forcing you to push back your retirement date, just to make up for the bad timing of wanting to retire when a bad bear market hits your portfolio. That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

In today's fast-paced world, it can be tempting to constantly chase the next big idea or try to fix what isn't working. However, this approach can lead to burnout, frustration, and ultimately, failure. A better strategy is to "double down" on what is working best for you, by focusing your energy and resources on your biggest wins. What is "Double Down"? Double down is a term originally used in the card game of blackjack, where a player doubles their bet in exchange for only one more card. In business and life, the concept of double down means taking a calculated risk and investing more in an activity or strategy that has proven successful. Why Double Down Works When you double down, you are leveraging your strengths and building on your successes. By focusing on what is already working, you can amplify your results, increase your efficiency, and achieve your goals faster. Additionally, by doubling down, you can reduce the time and energy you spend on things that are not working, freeing up your resources for the things that truly matter. Examples of Double Down One of the best examples of double-down in action is the story of McDonald's. In the early days of the company, the founders recognized that their most successful menu item was the hamburger. So, they doubled down on it, streamlining their menu and focusing their marketing efforts on the burger. This decision allowed McDonald's to grow into one of the largest fast-food chains in the world. Another example of double down is in personal development. If you have found a habit or routine that is working well for you, such as exercise, meditation, or journaling, then consider doubling down on it. By dedicating more time and energy to these activities, you can maximize your results and achieve your goals faster. How to Double Down To double down effectively, you need to be intentional and strategic. Here are some steps to get started: Identify your biggest wins. What activities, projects, or strategies have been the most successful for you? Prioritize your resources. Allocate more time, money, and energy to your biggest wins, and reduce your investments in the things that are not working. Stay focused. Don't get distracted by shiny new ideas or opportunities. Stick to your plan and double down on what is working best. Celebrate your successes. Take time to acknowledge and appreciate your wins, and use them as motivation to keep going. By focusing on what is working best, you can maximize your success and achieve your goals faster. So, if you want to take your life or business to the next level, consider doubling down on your biggest wins today!

AWM Insights Financial and Investment News
Welcome to 2023! The New Year is always a natural time for reflection. We looked back on the year that was in our last episode. In this week's episode we take a look forward and set some foundational expectations for the year ahead, whatever it may bring. The big topics in the financial media at the moment are 2023 predictions. And they are just that, predictions! No one has a crystal ball and no one seems to be able to predict the future with any certainty. So while it is certainly a fun exercise and a great topic over a beer or glass of wine or other beverage of choice, history shows you should definitely stop there and rely on a systematic, long-term approach to managing and building multi-generational wealth. Just remember markets tend to fool most people most of the time and we'll talk through ways to avoid thisAs we enter 2023, it's important to remember that we view money as a tool to accomplish your priorities. We want to intentionally allocate your money in a way that supports what is most important to you. As such, we structure portfolios and your net worth in a way that increases the likelihood of success and minimizes the impact of chance on your outcomes. Have questions for an upcoming episode?

This week, Dan Neumann is joined by Adam Ulery for the first episode of 2023. In this episode, they are talking about new beginnings and how they are the perfect opportunity to plan forward and set intentions for the future. Adam and Dan dive deep into the importance of goal setting and how to do it in the most effective way possible. Key Takeaways Goal setting: It is important to set and reset goals when one cycle ends and another begins. Sometimes New Year's resolutions don't last long. A key element to achieving goals and being happy with your performance is just being intentional. Even if you don't achieve the goal, the benefit is the learning opportunities you found through the process. Most of the time, preparing for goal setting is about taking the time to reflect and process your thoughts about what it is that you are trying to achieve. Take action! SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. When does a goal need to be reset? Reassess your goals at the end of each cycle. Measure along the way so you know where you are. These metrics are fundamental to knowing where your performance is around the goal. How Teams and Individuals can be more effective in reaching their goals: Allocate capacities for each goal. Remember to be intentional about your goals. Team members have to hold each other mutually accountable. Surround yourself with high performers and your performance will elevate as well.

Reflect on your values and principles: What are the things that are most important to you? What do you stand for and believe in? Consider how your values and principles align with your goals and how they fit into your current schedule. Identify your goals: What do you want to achieve in the short-term and long-term? Consider both personal and professional goals, and prioritize them based on their importance to you. Assess your current schedule: Take a look at how you're currently spending your time. Are there activities or commitments that are not aligned with your values and goals? Are there things you can let go of or prioritize differently? Make a plan: Based on your values, goals, and current schedule, make a plan for how you can allocate your time to reflect your priorities. This may involve rearranging your schedule or making changes to your commitments.
1. Choose specific and achievable goals: It's important to set specific and achievable goals, rather than vague or overly ambitious ones. This will help you stay focused and motivated, and increase your chances of success. For example, instead of setting a goal to "exercise more," set a specific goal such as "exercise for 30 minutes three times a week." 2. Make a plan and set small milestones: Once you have identified your goals, it's important to make a plan and set small milestones to help you stay on track. This can be as simple as breaking your goal down into smaller tasks and setting deadlines for each one. For example, if your goal is to learn a new skill, you could set a milestone to complete a certain number of lessons per week or month. 3. Seek support and accountability: It can be helpful to seek support and accountability from friends, family, and the community as you work towards your goals. This can provide motivation and encouragement, and help you stay on track. In Islam, the emphasis on community and support is an important aspect of self-improvement and personal growth. 4. Allocate time to work towards your goals: Time management is an important aspect of achieving your goals. Make sure to set aside dedicated time to work towards your goals, and try to be consistent in your efforts. The Prophet (peace be upon him) and the Ahl-e-Bait (AS) were known for their dedication and hard work, and their examples can serve as a source of inspiration for us.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Longtermism Fund: December 2022 Grants Report, published by Michael Townsend on December 21, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Introduction The Longtermism Fund is pleased to announce that we will be providing grants to the following organisations in our first-ever grantmaking round: Center for Human-Compatible Artificial Intelligence ($70,000 USD) SecureBio ($60,000 USD) Rethink Priorities' General Longtermism Team ($30,000 USD) Council on Strategic Risks' nuclear weapons policy work ($15,000 USD) These grants will be paid out in January 2023; the amounts were chosen based on what the Fund has received in donations as of today. In this payout report, we will provide more details about the grantmaking process and the grantees the fund is supporting. This report was written by Giving What We Can, which is responsible for the fund's communications. Longview Philanthropy is responsible for the Fund's research and grantmaking. Read more about the Longtermism Fund here and about funds more generally here. The grantmaking process Longview actively investigates high-impact funding opportunities for donors looking to improve the long-term future. This means the grants for the Longtermism Fund are generally decided by: Longview's general work (which is not specific to the Longtermism Fund) evaluating the most cost-effective funding opportunities. This involves thousands of hours of work each year from their team. Read more about why we trust Longview as a grantmaker. Choosing among those opportunities based on the scope of the Fund. In addition to this, the Fund decided to support a diverse range of longtermist causes this grantmaking round. Our current plan is to provide grant reports approximately every six months. The scope of the Fund The scope of the Longtermism Fund is to support organisations that are: Reducing existential and catastrophic risks. Promoting, improving, and implementing key longtermist ideas. In addition, the fund aims to support organisations with a compelling and transparent case in favour of their cost-effectiveness that most donors interested in longtermism will understand, and/or that would benefit from being funded by a large number of donors. Why the fund is supporting organisations working on a diverse range of longtermist causes There are several major risks to the long-term future that need to be addressed, and they differ in their size, potential severity, and how many promising solutions are available and in need of additional funding. However, there is a lot of uncertainty about which of these risks are most cost-effectively addressed by the next philanthropic dollar, even among expert grantmakers. Given this, the Fund aimed to: Provide funding to organisations working across a variety of high-impact longtermist causes, including: Improving biosecurity and pandemic preparedness Promoting beneficial AI And reducing the risks from nuclear war. Allocate an amount of funding to highly effective organisations working on these causes representative of how the fund might deploy resources across areas in the future. A benefit of this approach is that the grants highlight a diverse range of approaches to improving the long-term future. We expect the Fund to take a similar approach for the foreseeable future, but we could imagine it changing if there is a persistent and notable difference in the cost-effectiveness in the funding opportunities between causes. At this point, so long as those opportunities are within the Fund's scope, funding the most cost-effective opportunities will likely outweigh supporting a more diverse range of causes. Grantees This section will provide further information about the grantees and a specific comment from Longview on why they chose to fund the organisation and how they expect the funding to be used.

A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein and I am your host for this show. Over the last year or so, I've received a number of questions related to helping a team improve their overall productivity. Now, this is a difficult question to answer because each individual team member will be motivated by different things and each person will have a unique approach to getting their work done. Motivation is a key part to individual productivity. If you are not motivated by your work and you see it only as a way to pay the bills, more fulfilling motives such as ownership of a project or task, developing your skills and helping people solve problems don't feature in an individual's mindset. That said, it is possible to build a highly productive team that has clear outcomes each day and week and at the same time builds ownership, camaraderie and a strong team work ethic. And that is what we will be looking at today. So, with all that said, let me hand you over to the Mystery Podcast Voice for this week's question. This week's question comes from Tony. Tony asks, Hi Carl, I manage a team of eight people and we are responsible to sales and the initial after sales programme following delivery of out product. The problem I am having is keeping my team focused on what we are trying to accomplish. They often get distracted by low value tasks that means we often fall behind on our plan. Do you have any advice on helping teams be more focused? Hi Tony, thank you for your question. As I mentioned in the introduction, working with a team of people has its own challenges when it comes to productivity but there are a few things you can do that will enhance you teams overall productivity. The first is clear communication. Often what happens within a team is there is poor communication on the results that the team is expected to accomplish. At the beginning of a year or a quarter, team leaders are usually reluctant to talk about what the team's targets are. Managers are quite happy to discuss individual targets with employees, but rarely talk about the group target. The problem here is you encourage team members to focus on their individual targets and the team's. What you want to be doing is ensuring that the team as a whole knows the target so that they can work together to achieve that team goal. I remember when I was selling cars in the early 1990s, there were three of us in the new car sales team, plus a sales manager. Claire, Bob and myself. Claire was an outstanding sales person. She was focused, aggressive (in a positive way) and could pull sales out of nowhere. Bob on the other hand was slower. He was patient and gentler, yet he had an enormous amount of experience and consistently brought ink the sales. Me? I was somewhere in the middle. Each month out team's target was to sell 35 cars. Now, traditionally, that number would be divided between the three of us equally, but while Claire rarely missed her targets, Bob and myself struggled to hit the target. Yet, our sales manager, David, realised that the important target was the 35 cars. Not that his three sales people sold twelve cars each per month. If we had focused on the individual numbers, Claire would have slowed down in the forth week of the month, while Bob and I would be slow at the beginning of the month. On the white board in David's office, there was only two numbers. The target (35) and the number of cars we had sold that month. This way, we were encouraged to work as a team. It also meant that if Claire's more aggressive approach was not working with a particular customer, David would ask Bob or myself to step in and close the sale. Equally, if a slow burn approach appeared not to be working, we would ask Claire to step in and close the sale. We had a regular morning meeting at 8:30am and in that meeting we discussed what we had on as potential sales, and we set objectives for the day. The communication was clear and we set about our day with clear objectives to accomplish that day. That team was the best team I ever worked in in terms of productivity. As far as I recall we never missed our targets, and we won a lot of awards for the best new car sales team within the group. The success of that team was down to simple communication and a shared objective. The next important factor for improving your team's productivity is to trust your team to get on and do their work. This is about allowing your individual team members to own the task or objective. If, as a manager, you are micromanaging your team and always monitoring what they are doing, you are destroying the team's trust. You, as a leader, need to trust your team to get on do what they do best—their job. As a leader of a team, your job is to ensure your team is moving in the right direction and to remove any barriers your team may face in the execution of their work—more on that later. What this means, is once you have given your team members their instructions, so to speak, you need to leave them to get on and do it. Hence the importance of clear communication. If you are constantly calling, messaging and emailing them for updates, you are preventing them from doing their work. Your team need space to do their work. Now in my experience, if a manager or team leader is always requesting updates, it's a sign they do not trust their team. That is not a productivity issue, but a recruiting one. It means you are recruiting, or you feel you are recruiting, so called “B players”. That needs to stop. If you are employing the right people—the A Players—you can then step back and let them do what they do best. Now, I know as a leader you need to report to your manager or leader. And that goes back to how you are communicating with your team. If you need to regularly report numbers to your manager, you should set up a simple reporting system that your team updates at the end of each day or week. That way, you will have access to the numbers you need to report to your boss without interrupting your team. So, make sure you have clear reporting processes put in place for your team. Do not over complicate this. Updating the reporting system should not take your team more than ten minutes each day to do. Now, back to your role as a barrier remover. The best managers I've ever worked with saw their job as helping me and my colleagues to do their job with as little friction as possible. If there were procedural problems within the company, my manager would step in to sort out these problems. If I ever had a difficult customer, or student, my manager would step in and clear whatever problems I was having. I remember one occasion where we had a particularly difficult student in our language institute. She was never happy with the teacher she was given and would inevitably complain if the teacher diverged from the textbook. Whenever she turned up in one the teacher's classes, they would freeze up and their classes became very boring, which meant they lost students. Our institute manager and I (as I was the native English teacher's manager at that time) sat down and worked out a strategy to help this student achieve what she wanted to achieve. We even had a meeting with her to explain our teaching philosophy. In the end it was decided I would teach her next class and before the class started I sat down and explained my teaching methodology to her and got her to agree to following my method for a month. What we did was take a difficult student away from the other teachers so they could get on and do their job and allowed the most experienced teacher (at the that time, me) to solve the problem. We did. And, I got an invite to that student's wedding six months later. The one thing you do not want to be doing as a manager is imposing your productivity system on your team. What works for you is not likely to work for them. Instead, you want to be focusing on is giving clear instructions to your team and letting them get on do what they are best at doing. The final piece of this puzzle is how you communicate with your team. If you allow your team to communicate in anyway they like, you are going to find you are swamped with emails, Teams or Slack messages and a backlog of phone calls. Set a standard. If you are not already using something like Microsoft Teams or Slack, then look into adding a channel like this as your team's communication channel. This allows you to centralise all messages and gives your team a resource for solving problems that individual team members have solved. It can become a team Wiki page. You also need to avoid placing response time expectations on your team too. If they feel they need to reply to your messages within minutes of receiving them. They are not going to be productive. Your team need the space to do their work, not worrying about replying to your messages as soon as they come in. However, if you put in place a workable reporting system, you should not need to be asking your team for updates—that information will be available in the reporting system. One final part to this is the question about whether you need a task or project manager to manage the tasks within your team. These can help if your team are working on joint projects. These can also help you as a manager to see what's happening, what still needs to be done and where there are holdups. I don't want to get into the pros and cons of the various apps you can use here, but in my experience working with teams, the best apps for managing team based work are apps like Trello, Microsoft Planner and Asana—boards seem to work better than lists with teams. The key to making task and project managers work is someone needs to have responsibility to ensure they are updated. If you, as the team leader are the only one using this system it is not going to work. You need commitment from your team and that means you will need to show the benefits to your team. I would suggest you set up a training morning or afternoon with your whole team to go through how to use the system. Allocate responsibility for making sure the system is up to date and clearly define expectations. In my experience, if you commit to training your team correctly in using the task manager, you will get support. A lack of training and understanding of the benefits is usually the reason why these well-intentioned approaches fail to work. So there you go, Tony. I hope that helped and thank you for your question. Thank you to you too for listening and let me wish you a wonderful Christmas (if you celebrate Christmas), and a fantastic start to the new year. This podcast will be back on the 9th January. It just remains for me now to wish you all a very very productive week.

ARCHITECTING Podcast - Career + Lifestyle Mentoring for Architects looking to move beyond overwhelm and make a difference thr
You might be down for the struggle, but maybe you don't have to be. Opposition takes a lot of energy and political capital. Listen in to know when you're squandering your bandwidth on a no-win situation and when the fight is worth it. The cause worth fighting for is the one that's bigger than you. If there isn't a higher purpose or greater good involved, don't engage. Allocate your energy positively (and get waaay more powerful results) by focusing on what you do want, not what you don't. Discern between doing what's right and righteousness. Righteousness is about fear of losing control or way of understanding the world challenged. Consider why you need to "win" or be right. Let other people have their opinions and shortcomings. It's not your job to convince them of anything. Need more help? Consider 1 to 1 coaching with me.

How do I prioritize my spending? How do I know where to allocate my money? What should I be doing first? I get these questions all the time, and many folks just want to be told what to do, but it doesn't work that way. The way you allocate your spending always has to anchor back to your goals and be in line with how you are prioritizing your desired outcomes. What I can do is share my opinion on priorities for most business owners, and I can tell you the priorities I think most business owners should use as inspiration. * Questions about this episode?

No matter how well-seasoned you are in real estate, there's no denying the fact that sometimes sale agreements fall through. Buyers that walk away from an agreement have their own personal reasons not to continue doing business with you. This situation can be very frustrating, given the fact that you've put in your time, effort, and heart to make this deal possible. To avoid mishaps like this along the way, listen to Zack as he gives you the secret ingredient on how to save a wholesale and get that shiny paycheck that you deserve. Key Takeaways Make sure that you're doing things legally and properly. Allocate 2-4 weeks for the inspection period. It's important to set certain expectations with the seller. Inspect the property and make sure that your price is correct. What happens when you're under contract for too long? It's all about progress, not perfection. The only thing that matters is what the end-buyers are willing to pay. To be successful in this business, you have to make sure that the offers that are coming in for that certain opportunity are as high as possible. Resources Driving For Dollars Mastery
