And in our interview segment, Steve Glaveski, author of Time Rich, counters a very long-standing workplace tradition. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    An important question: Why do we unquestionably accept things as they are? A thought experiment regarding this often counterproductive element of human nature. The importance of not accepting the status quo...just for the sake of the status quo.

    The history of the 9 to 5 workday. Why working in a “flow” state helps executives become 5 times more productive. Why inbox zero is often a reflection of a lack of focusing on our own priorities. A reminder from Peter Drucker: “There’s nothing worse than the wrong thing done right.” The danger of “polishing” your work too much.

    “Every black sheep is 100% authentically original, and it cannot be twisted or changed into something it wasn’t meant to be.” ~@BrantMenswar #blacksheep “When you discover what your non-negotiable values are, it’s the activation of those values that allows you to choose a purpose in alignment with them.” ~@BrantMenswar #blacksheep “There is a difference between ‘important’ and ‘non-negotiable.’” ~@BrantMenswar #blacksheep
