E3: Simple Tips for Increased Productivity | Graham Allcott (Founder of 'Think Productive')

Along The Road

Graham Allcott is the founder of Think Productive, one of the world’s leading providers of personal productivity training and consultancy. They have offices around the world, and have had clients like WWF, Boots, British Airways, BT, KFC, and Sainsbury’s. Graham’s fascinated about the world of productivity, and has written multiple books, including the global best-seller, “How to be a Productivity Ninja”. He also hosts a podcast (“Beyond Busy”) diving deep into the subjects of productivity, work/life balance, and how people define happiness in their lives. ⏳ Topics 1:51 How Time Management Has Changed Graham tells us about how he feels most of the well-known time management techniques come from the books that were written before 24/7 instant communication, and the type of society we live in now. He introduces his idea of 'attention management'. Graham also raises the point that there's no such thing as a 'clean slate' when it comes to to-do lists, and it's more about how we react to the tasks. We discuss the importance of breaks. 15:41 The Boss and Worker Modes Graham reveals how the 'Boss and Worker' mentality can be used to improve clarity around work that needs to get done. He also tells us about a couple easy techniques for when we feel behind. 21:33 How 'Think Productive' Came into Existence I ask Graham about whether he always had so many mentalities and knowledge around productivity throughout his life.Graham tells us about how the creation of his company stemmed from a period in his life where he noticed his lack of productivity knowledge, and was something he stumbled upon. We also discuss the things Graham is still learning day-to-day about productivity. 35:55 The 5 Ending Questions I ask Graham the famously difficult 5 ending questions! 📚 Resources Mentioned "How to be a Productivity Ninja" – Graham's best-selling productivity book, which we discussed. "How to be a Study Ninja" - Another of Graham's books that I read and mentioned in the episode. "Think Productive" - Graham's business 🔗 Graham’s Links Link Page Twitter Instagram Facebook YouTube Website 🔗 My Links Twitter Instagram Facebook YouTube Website This episode is available on YouTube & all podcast apps ⭐ If you’re reading this far, you’re probably thinking: “Wow, this is great!

Best Of: The Productivity Ninja Speaks with Graham Allcott - 193

The Speaking Club: Mastering the Art of Public Speaking

One of the main things I teach people is how to get and keep peoples’  attention. That’s because in today’s world attention is more precious and valuable than gold.  Social media companies employ genius minds to work out better ways to keep us ‘in the matrix’, and all of us are bombarded with notifications, information, entertainment and choice. So... not only is it harder to get peoples’ attention, it’s harder for us all to pay attention.  Yet without time that’s free from distraction, we will never get our best work done. That’s why I’ve brought this show back into focus for you. It’s one of the first 50 shows I released and I believe it is one of my best.  Graham Allcott is a productivity expert, but it wasn’t always that way. In this show you’ll find out how he got productive and has helped thousands of people to get life and work back under control.  After founding his company Think Productive, Graham went on to write Productivity Ninja, which is a worldwide best seller. Today his team works with companies all over the world, he is a speaker, and is currently working on other productivity related projects that will broaden the Ninja brand and help us all work smarter. Enjoy! What you’ll learn Why it’s good to teach what you struggle to learn yourself Why you should detach your ego from delegation How clarity can overcome procrastination Why it’s more interesting to not be the Guru. How to develop positive productivity habits How starting a business in a time of adversity can bring more opportunity Why good design is important for all sorts of businesses Why taking risks and having strong opinions can pay dividends  The main struggles around productivity Why technological questions are always people problems  The silver bullet of productivity The four steps to improve your productivity How constraint can 10x your productivity What attention management is and why it’s crucial for productivity Why your will power won’t beat silicon-valley Why you should get your inbox to zero Why you should eat the rainbow How getting mistaken for an employee as a speaker is a good thing How comedy can help your speaking All things Graham: Graham’s Website – http://www.grahamallcott.com Think Productive - https://thinkproductive.co.uk Beyond Busy Podcast - http://getbeyondbusy.com Graham’s Books: How to be a Productivity Ninja by Graham Allcott How to be a Study Ninja by Graham Allcott Get your In-Box to Zero Books mentioned in the Show: Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela Anyone Can Do It – My Story by Duncan Bannatyne Resources: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thespeakingclub/ https://www.saraharcher.co.uk/challenge https://www.facebook.com/SarahArcherSpeak/ https://www.storyledmarketing.com https://www.saraharcher.co.uk https://www.standoutpitch.com Thanks for listening!
