Understanding the limitations of your attention is the key to finding focus – without you will remain busy, stressed, and distracted.
We are currently living in an attention economy where the average person consumes 174 newspapers worth of information every single day.
Everybody is trying to keep up. Wanting to know everything, be available at all times, and find time to stay productive. But the truth is that everybody is overwhelmed, stressed, and distracted.
This is because the way we are working is wrong. We are putting the technology and consumption of information first and arranging our life around it. We should be putting our brains and bodies first and designing our lives so that we get the very best from ourselves.
You do not need to be constantly distracted. You can be more focused and more productive with significantly less stress. All you need is knowledge and guidance on how to arrange your daily life in a way that supports you.
– In this 60 minute presentation will gain insights into:
➔ Why you are struggling with constant distractions
➔ How your brain has evolved to focus and consume information
➔ How to be much more productive and effective by doing less of ‘everything’ and more of the ‘essential things’
➔ How to design your work environment for less distraction and more focus
Future progress will be determined by your people’s potential, not productivity.
In this presentation Patrick McAndrew will share five insights that can help you and your people unlock the potential of a hybrid work environment. The central theme of this presentation is about shifting your focus away from making your people more productive and instead focusing on unlocking their potential.
Patrick will share how an emphasis on productivity creates future problems, especially around work-life balance.
The word productive comes from the French word Productif, meaning to bring forth. Right now we are living in an age where everybody is trying to be more productive. Trying to hack their way to be faster, to learn more, do more, and make the most of every minute.
But does it make us better? Does this emphasis on being productive really unlock your potential?
Patrick McAndrew would argue that it doesn’t.
It makes us constantly feel the squeeze of time. It makes us put doing before being, and we only realise the damage this causes when it is too late. The chase of being productive extends beyond how you approach work and often dictates how you approach life. Always doing and always busy but never truly aware of yourself and rarely fully engaged in any one thing.
