Taming Your Tools

KEEP THE LONG VIEW IN VIEW

Post your complex, long-term goals by your workstation to keep them top of mind when prioritizing your tasks.


BE CONSCIOUS OF YOUR BANDWIDTH

Practice letting go of certain e-mail and social media conversations. There will always be more opportunities than you actually can take on.


CHECK YOURSELF, OR WRECK YOURSELF

Distinguish between compulsive and conscious behaviors. Are you acting out of boredom or blind habit when you could be serving a higher goal?


HIT THE RESET BUTTON

Make a ritual of unplugging on a regular basis. Turning everything off is like hitting the “reset” button on your mind—it gives you a fresh start.


DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH

Be conscious of your body. Breathing deeply and regularly can decrease your stress levels and help you make better decisions.


IN IMAGINATION WE TRUST

Don’t trust technology over your own instincts and imagination. Doing busywork is easy; doing your best work is hard.
