Call them dinosaur-brains or Neanderthals, there are people in every business who live to make us miserable. They aren’t necessarily actively toxic, but some are so rude, bureaucratic, and/or annoying, your automatic response may be to disengage from them and your work. As well all know, disengagement kills productivity.
We all know the expression “first things first.” But what’s a high priority to one person might have low value to another, so it takes time to get everyone on a team on the same page with projects and deadlines. Effective prioritization requires teamwork, training, and trust for it to become automatic. Your team may not have arrived there yet, as it requires what the military calls "time in grade."
Pleased to have my book FASTER TOGETHER: Accelerating Your Team's Productivity listed in this @Inc piece!

Bring on the hammock and more memorable, meaningful time - all you have to do is read Laura Vanderkam's new book: Off the Clock: Feel Less Busy While Getting More Done"! I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy and love it! I've been teaching and writing on productivity topics for 25+ years but still learned several mindset shifts to help me feel calm on the busiest days. Highly recommended!
