106: Living Your Most Productive Life with Tonya Dalton

The Modern Manager

Being productive often sounds easier than it actually is.

Tonya is a productivity expert, author, speaker and founder of inkWELL Press Productivity Co, a company centered around productivity tools and training.

It’s better to do fewer, right things, than be busy with many things that don’t move the needle. There is no such thing as work-life balance. Instead, it’s a constant dance of leaning and counterbalancing. There are times when we need to spend more time, energy and focus at work and then times when we do at home, or on ourselves. The goal is not equal attention to all areas, but a healthy ebb and flow. The Live Well method has four stages: (1) Discovery - what matters to you; (2) Clarify - how do you design your life around your priorities; (3) Simplify - streamline, automate and simplify as much as possible (4) Harmony - make it manageable and embrace happiness. It’s important to think of your life holistically. You need work and home to both be running smoothly if you want to be your best self. Don’t forget about yourself. Our brains and bodies need rest, rejuvenation and investment.  The human brain has an ultradian rhythm which means it works hard for 90-120 minutes and then needs a break. It can’t work at full speed for 8 hours straight. Block time on your calendar to do your important work. This signals to colleagues that you’re not available. It’s OK to say no to a meeting or to ask for an agenda and decide if you should attend or what parts you should attend. Don’t let a 5 minute ‘quick question’ become a 30 minute conversation. If you’ve got other things to do, schedule a better time to discuss the topic or use a different mode of connection e.g. chat app or email. Put a sign on your door or on your chat availability that say you’re busy. Include what time you’ll be done so colleagues (or housemates) know when they can interrupt you again. Improve your habits. Use timers to set reminders, set routines for how you start and end your day. Share what matters to you with your team. Let them know of any time you’ve blocked for specific deep work. The more your team is aware of your goals and priorities, the more easily they can work in ways that allows you to focus. It also brings the team closer into alignment.  KEEP UP WITH TONYA Website: tonyadalton.com Facebook: tonyadalton.com/fb Book: joyofmissingout.com Instagram: @tonya.i.dalton RESOURCES Book: How To Be An Inclusive Leader Episode 89: Growing into an Inclusive Leader with Jennifer Brown Color of Change https://colorofchange.org/ Equal Justice Initiative https://eji.org/racial-justice/ mamie@mamieks.com
