The 9 Characteristics of a Productivity Ninja
1. Zen-like calm
Zen like calm is an ability to remain focused and not be stressed by everything on your task list.
Say‘no’ to as many distractions as possible. Can you be more ruthless in your focus?
Use productivity tools, but being clear that the tools are there to save time, not provide distractions.
4. Stealth and camouflage
There times when working alone, away from the limelight, might be more productive.
Think how would Nelson Mandela do this? Take inspiration from unusual (as well as usual) places.
Have good systems to help you react and respond quickly. Are there opportunities to discuss the storm during the calm before it? Plan ahead!
7. Mindfulness and Productivity
Ask yourself good questions and avoid stress. Are you a good listener – to yourselves and to others?
Rest, relaxation and good organisation skills are important. If you’re over-stretched, can you see light at the end of the tunnel? If not, change it!
9. Be Human not a Superhero
To be a Productivity Ninja, you don’t have to be a superhero. Superheroes only exist in the movies and you’ve got real work to do. Aiming for perfection is often the quickest way to get stuck. The important thing is to finish, not to be perfect. How many characteristics do you identify with? Please leave your comments below…
