Transcript of Robusthed
Define your purpose
You are smart
You have so many
You are bombarded
with thoughts on
what you should do
with your life
Some say "I want to keep all options open"
You need a purpose, a guiding star, a light house, a compass...
Something that allows you to navigate, prioritize and make decisions on what is important to yourself
Some try to build roadmaps and make career plans
In 30 years, looking back at my life, what will matter
to me that I have done?
Poetry that makes people cry
The best economic model ever
Saved the orangutang
Fame and prestige
A more sustainable world
A lot of money
Cure for cancer
A book on the Tuaregs
Observe yourself. Read the Insights profile. Take a test with your union. Ask your colleagues and manager. Ask your friends and family. Ask your partner
Do you know that?
Communication and influencing?
Am I a reader?
Am I a writer?
Am I a listener?
Do I prefer predictability or chaos?
Do I like to work with people or alone?
Do I like big or small organisations?
What am I good at?
How do I work?
What are my values?
What kind of person do I want to see
in the mirror in the morning?
Successful careers are not planned. They
develop because people know their strenghts, weaknesses, their method of work and their values
"I think about all the things I've done. And all of the things I didn't do. The mistakes I made are dead to me. But I can't take back the things I never did"
Extremely Loud, Incredibly Close
Jonathan Safran Foer
Manage your energy
Eat well - and small meals
Notice signs of energy flagging
Take brief regular breaks
Fuel positive emotions in yourself by expressing
appreciation to others in detailed specific terms
Look at upsetting situations through new lenses
Reduce interruptions by performing high concentration tasks away from phones and e-mail
Respond to emails and voice mails at designated times during the day
Identify the most important challenge for the next
day and make it your first priority when you arrive at work in the morning
Identify your sweet spot activities - those that
give you feelings of effectiveness, absorption and fulfillment
Allocate time and energy to what you
consider most important
And when you feel overwhelmed...
Take a deep breath
and a step back
Ask for help
Break large tasks
into smaller ones
Priorities and planning
Be realistic. Don't plan for
Accepting circumstances that cannot be changed can help you focus on circumstances that you CAN alter.
Decision making and action
Decide and take steps to carry out plans. It produces stress to go over and over the same thing without acting on it
Look at the problem from the inside.
Analyze it in order to find a solution
Look at the problem from the outside. Accept that it is there. What does it do to you? What feelings does it create?
Trust your instincts
and your gut feelings but...
...be aware of the decision traps
The framing trap
The status quo trap
The sunk cost trap
The confirming evidence trap
The overconfidence trap
Don't let papers accumulate but try to
act on, file or toss every document you touch.
OHIO; only handle information once!
You do not have to be perfect in all that you do. Spend the most time on the most important things.
Use a to do list or note system to take pressure
off your mental circuits. But use one that you trust.
Learn to say no - to the right things
You can’t change mistakes, but you
can choose how to respond to them.
Maintain a hopeful outlook. Try visualizing what you want, rather than worrying about what you fear.
Focus on what you have
and not on what you don't have
Don't be a victim. Seek ways to influence and regain feeling of control regardless of the situation
Don’t equate making mistakes
with being a mistake.
Watch out for the "performance mode".
In this mode...
...a mistake is a failure
...the mistake is made because
you are not intelligent enough
Difficult means you are not good enough or weak
...your drive becomes to avoid making mistakes which fosters an approach deprived of enjoyment
In a learning mode...
...mistakes are a chance to learn and improve
...intelligence evolves as
you meet new challenges
Your drive is to do your best while learning the most you can which fosters an approach of enthusiasm, energy and fun.
What kinds of changes are required to avoid making this mistake again?
Get past your doubts and get back in the game
Don’t over-compensate: the next situation won’t be the same as the last.
If a mistake happens accept the
responsibility - it makes learning possible
Break down the chronology and clearly define (your recollection of) the sequence of events
What small mistakes, in sequence, contributed to the bigger mistake?
Are there alternatives you should have considered but did not?
How do you think your behavior should/would change in you were in a similar situation again?
The art of the art is picking your limits. That is the autonomy I most cherish. Freedom to pick your boundaries.
- Seth Goden
The funny thing is that in the learning mode you perform better than in the performance mode
Because opportunities are many. And because life is what happens to you while you are busy making plans
What are my weaknesses?
Not a finisher when working alone?
Not enough focus on deliverables and process?
Write down your purpose in 15 words and
let the world and yourself know
Do not check your email when you are off
Turn off push messages and emails on your phone
Do not check social media all the time
Keep your fear of missing out in check. You cant do everything and you cant be everything.
Accept that you are as most other people. YOU ARE NOT UNIQUE. AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE.
Focus on what you have instead of what you do not have
Spend five minutes to write down what you are grateful for each night before you go to bed
Do not use your inbox as a to do list
If you have a problem then do something it. Do not let it drag you down.
Set time aside to think ahead. Be the captain of your everyday life - not the passenger
Keep it short. If you give a long answer to a question from your manager or a colleague it does not communicate how clever you are.
Difficult means a change to learn
Have patience. A lot of it
