8月23日晚上,Sarah师母谈论了GLS17当中对她印象非常深的《The Strategic Pause》,她分享的要点大纲如下:

Juliet論到:

  • 我們越來越不懂得暫停(Pause), 而暫停將會成為過去的記憶。
  • 暫停(Pause)的瞬間可讓我們充電, 反思, 有更佳的表現, 和帶來更好策劃
  • 當暫停(Pause)被排擠出去, 我們的生活就顯得緊張和存在壓力。
  • 這種損失對我們的生活和事業就必負出沉重的代價
  • Juliet 舉了一個我們整天如何工作不用呼吸的例子

Juliet 提出一些要點:

  • 過於忙碌不懂得慢下來
  • 現今資訊太豐富和過於繁忙
  • 100%疲憊和0%體貼
  • 沒有計算為崇拜假神(忙碌)付出的代價

Juliet 為繁忙的人創建了白色空間(Whitespace):

  • 不是冥想
  • 不是思想遊蕩
  • 不是專注思想
  • 沒有規則,沒有目標,沒有範圍 –

 

那我们应该如何做呢?

  1. 你必須簡化工作流程
  2. 意識到盜賊(把我們時間搶走)
  3. 用問題打敗他們
  • 有什麼我可以放手呢?
  • 怎樣為之夠好,夠好?
  • 什麼真的需要知道?
  • 什麼值得我注意?

 

GLS 2017: Session 5 – Juliet Funt

  • Driving around with son and he kept talking. Hit me that this is what my husband my felt like. Went home and told him. He said, “Thank you Jesus!” And we’re Jewish.
  • We’re getting less and less comfortable with the pause. With the moments that we leave open. The pause is becoming a memory.
  • This loss has heavy cost to our life, our business.
  • The pause is the place where we strategize, introspect. The pause has been squeezed out by the tyranny of the urgent.
  • Example of how we work all day long without taking a breath … and this is how you’re going to be global leaders of the future.
  • It’s a recipe that is 100% busy and 0%
  • Every body is overload with information and busyness.
  • We are too busy to become less busy.
  • We don’t examine the costs. What are the costs to worshiping the false god of busyness.
    • From a business perspective, when we look at busy work as waste, it’s phenomenally expensive. About $1 million per 50 people.
    • In a factory, if you had that level of waste, the Lean 6 Sigma consultants would come rushing in. In the office space, we just tolerate it.
  •  Wiley E Coyote runs off the cliff and hangs in the air for a moment. In this moment, we are at a moment where we can try and find a new viable solution.
  • My solution is whitespace. Whitespace is a strategic pause taken between activities. They become the oxygen that allows everything else to catch fire.
  • It can be recuperative or it can be innovative.
  • If you took MRI scan during the pause, you’d see insight, introspection and creativity all fired up.
  • Great leaders naturally use whitespace.
  • Jack Welch spent an hour a day looking out the window. Bill Gates took two think weeks where he locked himself in a cabin each year.
  • My dad was Allen Funt from the Candid Camera show.
  • I ended up here because I’m the sickest rat in the experiment. I’m a driven, tech-addicted lady. If it can help my busyness problem, it can help anyone
  • Whitespace is not meditation. Meditation comes back to singular point of focus.
  • Whitespace is not mindfulness.
  • Whitespace has no rules, no goals. It is a boundary-less place.
  • You have to de-crapify your work flow.
  • Step 1 – Become conscious of the themes.
    • Busyness always feels like it is our fault.
    • Research found 33 unique sources of pressure cascading down onto you. It includes seasonality of your industry, the economy.
    • Busyness is not a personal problem.
    • Four main drivers that fueled the overflow. The themes of productivity: drive, excellence, information, activity. When taken to the excess they become dangerous. Drive becomes overdrive. Excellence becomes perfectionism. Activity becomes frenzy.
    • The hedonic treadmill. – whatever we have, we will adapt and soon we will want more.
    • The themes are linked to our personality. Some of you will identify with drive or excellence. I love perfectionist. We get CDO (OCD with the letters alphabatized).
    • “Beware of the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick it once and you suck forever.” – Brian Wilson
    • You need to label them when you see them appear. Use language to out them.
    • The next step is to go to Disney World in Florida. Friend, George, every year went to Epcot. With grandma who wasn’t wheelchair dependent but was wheelchair enjoyment. George is 8 year old boy bored. He notices the empty wheelchair. He smashes mother in shins with footrest. All the people of Mini-Italy become very aware of women wailing on a boy who appears to be in a wheelchair. George gets up and runs away. There’s a pause.. and the nuns say, “It’s a miracle!” And empty wheelchair in the presence of an 8 year old will be filled, just like your time.
  • Step 2 – Defeat them with the questions.
    • Is there anything I can let go of? (DRIVE)
    • Where is good enough, good enough? (EXCELLENCE)
    • What do i truly need to know? (INFORMATION)
    • What deserves my attention? (ACTIVITY)
    • The questions are cornerstones of what we call reductive mindset.
    • Life has gotten too full, we have to learn to let go.
    • Whitespace learning activity that you can take with entire team.
    • Response Time Code
      • NYR Need Your Response  (No timeframe)
      • NYRT – Need Your Response Today
      • NYRQ – Need Your Response Quick
      • NRY-NBD – Need Your Response – Next Business Day
  • Taking Whitespace Home
    • Husband was in backyard with boys. Sent text saying “Pretty cute out here if you have sec.” I responded, “Busy.” Then I remembered. I rushed out so I didn’t miss it.
    • When is the best time to plant a tree? 20 years ago. When is the second best time? Today.
    • Build some Whitespace in your life so that when the ride comes to your door you can say yes.
