I’m delighted to speaking at an event hosted by the Psychological Society of Ireland next month. I’ll be walking delegates through my ‘Pillars of Productivity’, a principles-led approach to improving personal productivity.
We’ve been covering these principles on ‘My Pocket Psych‘ in recent months, so anyone who’s been listening will know that this approach is all about interpreting the pillars and making them work for you, in your working context. No rules, no complex systems and no proprietary apps you need to buy!
Rooted in the concepts that underpin Psychological Flexibility, the principles recognise the challenges we face at work in the 21st century: too many demands on our limited attention, a disconnection with our values and priorities and our in-built tendency to avoid discomfort where we can!
These tend to lead to information overload, procrastination, a feeling of being overwhelmed by demands and the ensuing negative impacts on our psychological and physical wellbeing. ‘Pillars of Productivity’ aims to highlight the key principles we should be paying attention to if we want to avoid this, get the right things done, and live life more intentionally.
Attendees will also get a free copy of my upcoming ‘Pillars of Productivity’ paper and the chance to reflect on their own priorities, their purpose and their process for getting productive.
The event takes place on May 14th at 6:15pm at the PSI’s Dublin headquarters. All the details, along with a sign-up link, can be found here.
