Do you know how to increase your productivity?

According to Dan Pink, author of When, you have to understand the three stages of your day.

We all go through these stages at different times, but the stages themselves are consistent: Peak, Trough, and Recovery.

The peak is when you have energy, when you're ready to go and you can accomplish anything. This is the time to work on your tough tasks.

The trough is when you're mentally checked out, sluggish, and not really present. This is the stage where you want to focus on the administrative tasks and things that don't require a lot of cognitive energy and effort.

The recovery happens much later in your day. This is where your mood is usually up, and it’s the best time to focus on tasks that are good for insight, such as creating tasks or brainstorming.

The key is to identify when is your peak, when is your trough, and when is your recovery. After you identify those things, you'll know which tasks you should be doing at certain times in the day.

I never liked the phrase soft skills.

To me, it implies that things like communication, empathy, self awareness, and emotional intelligence are less valuable and less tangible than things like reading, math, and science.

Many leaders and HR professionals actually agree that soft skills are more important now than these traditional hard skills.

It's these human soft skills that ultimately distinguish us from machines.

AI is already augmenting human decision making.

It's out thinking, out maneuvering, out strategizing and outperforming us in many capacities.

But not when it comes to the skills that make us who we are as human beings.

It's because of these “soft skills” that we were still able to bring in new customers and close deals.

We were still able to support and help each other.

And create customer and employee experiences that matter.

So let's call them what they really are, not soft skills, but skills.

Let's recognize how crucial and invaluable they truly are for our personal and professional success.

What is the most dangerous quality a leader can have?

Ego.

Having an ego in itself isn't bad. But what hurts a lot of leaders is having an ego that goes unchecked.

As you grow and excel in your career, you're going to get more power, authority, responsibility, and money. And as that happens, it's only natural that your ego is going to grow.

As a result, you start to think that your ideas are better than everybody else's and that you shouldn't be questioned or challenged.

This is when the downward spiral typically begins.

In addition to creating a toxic work culture, you start to miss out on opportunities to create new products and services, and you start to make bad decisions.

But the good news is there are a few things that you can do to avoid having this happen to you:

1. Practice empathy

2. Embrace and develop self awareness

3. Surround yourself with diverse people who are smarter and more talented than you

4. Get out of the ivory tower and spend time with people across different seniority levels and different functions in the organization

5. Practice saying I don't know

Keep your ego in check as you grow and develop as a leader. Don't let ego kill your career and your leadership potential.
