OPERATE LIKE A SPRINTER
The most effective way to operate at work is like a sprinter, working with single-minded focus for periods of no longer than 90 minutes, and then taking a break. That way when you’re working, you’re really working, and when you’re recovering, you’re truly refueling the tank.
Reassess your perspective
It’s surprisingly easy to develop an unhealthy attitude towards life. But it’s important to acknowledge that this is simply a habit, built up over time. You’re not obliged to continue feeling this way and by simply acknowledging how you view life the habit will begin to unwind. In fact it’s often possible to realign your perspective altogether.
