#11: Does It Have To Take That Long?
Would you like to get your work done faster? I mean, most people just assume a task will take as long as it does... are you sure?
We’ve got a new show format* for you — we’ve got Lukas and Janet in this episode, talking about classical conditioning and doing 200 tasks in 10 minutes each (yes, really!). Super valuable if you’re trying to get work done faster.
*Recordings taken from speaker breaks from a TWG session. We hold all sorts of topics during speaker breaks and thought this particular one would be super helpful to our listeners. Check out TWG if you’re into peak performance, you might dig it.
Listen to our previous episode, Big Project Angespannt, here.
1) First speaker: Lukas Kawerau
The biggest thing is mindset for people. Many people think certain timelines are just given. Mindset shift to change that.
A learned thing. This is actually not given, but more of “I'm in control. I determine how long these things take.”
Biological component - try and fail, try and fail. But one big success makes a difference.
A lot of people don't realise that they can influence part of any process and keep it moving.
2) Second speaker: Janet Alexandersson
Less of a mindset thing and more of a trial and error.
Experiment: 200 tasks to finish in 10 minutes, each of them.
You make decisions differently if you give yourself a limited amount of time
If you're forced to do tasks faster, you strip out everything that's not necessary.
