Managing for Productivity & Happiness

Creating a vibrant company culture is increasingly essential for building successful businesses and attracting the best people.

Deep focus is key to doing good work

If during the night someone kept poking you every 15 minutes you wouldn’t say you’ve had a good night’s sleep. Therefore, if you are being distracted every 15 minutes at work, how can you be expected to do your best work.

Don’t micro-manage projects

If your project to-do list is getting really long, throw it away and write a list with less detailed tasks and less on it. For this to work, you should hire smart people and let them fill in the gaps.

If you want to get more things done – have fewer things to do

We must focus on the most important things and learn to say no the unimportant things.
