My favourite performance statement at the moment is one that I copied from oprah’s new book – it was a quote from Joe Biden- kind of goes like this …. “I want to be that person who no matter what happens , just gets back up and keeps going.”
- First thing in the morning isn’t just when I want to get work done – everyone around me does too. How do you keep yourself from just answering other people’s questions and helping them every day? I love to help, but I feel like I am exhausted before I can start working!
- I can often get lost for hours in deep work forgetting to take breaks or to stop to eat then end up going to bed very late. I do not want to stop when I get started. What suggestions and advice do you have?
- What is your work routine? Do you have one?
- How do you apply the pomodoro technique to deep work?
- When I’m in a bad mood because of something that happened, how do I make myself feel better so I can focus on deep work?
When I was getting ready to swim, standing near the edge of my club’s outdoor pool after 9 o’clock one night a random man walking by said, “Go get ‘em cowboy.” I liked that.
- What do you do to avoid distractions?
- Is it optimal to break up deep work periods? I understood that people don’t tend to work optimally after about a 45-minute period?
- How you can do deep work?
- What’s the best way to balance food, activities and workouts?
- How do you learn to trust yourself and trust others?
- How do I wake up early in the morning every day?
- I would like to know if you have a boss and he is really in a bad mood, how do you handle this?
- Whenever I take a break, I lose track of what my plan was and I get totally lost in shallow activities. How can I deal with this?
- What advantage do you get from deep work?
- How do you find the best time of day to do deep work?
