Managing your day

From the Harvard Business Review blog, here are a couple of useful columns. The first, by Peter Bregman, is called "Two Lists You Should Look at Every Morning." Bregman argues that you need to know what you need to work on - he calls it The Focus List. And that you need to know what distracts you - The Ignore List. Or, if you will, the what you can let slide list. There's more, so click through to the full article.

The second, "Your Body Language Speaks for You in Meetings," by Charalambos Vlachoutsicos, is more about governing ourselves. Boss, underlings, students, teacher - we all have body language, and we all respond to that of others. Vlachoutsicos offers a check list for before meeting preparation - make sure you're not hungry or thirsty, go to the bathroom, and figure out your emotional temperature. He offers additional suggestions for during the meeting. Again, you'll have to click through to see what they are - it's worth it.
