Headless Chickens, Laidback Bears by Gordon Wainwright

Book Description

Time creation, as it is defined in this book, is another name for chronemics, the study of how we use our time and of how we may use it more effectively. It provides a set of techniques for doing things in time-saving ways and will change your life for the better if you put it into practice. You will cease to be one of life's headless chickens who dash around looking busy but achieving little, and become one of its laidback bears who really gets things done and enjoys life at the same time. This book will enable you to speed up those activities that can sensibly be speeded up, and to identify ways of saving time in those that cannot. The objective as one of life's laidback bears is to create some discretionary time which you can spend in whichever way you fancy; be it getting more work done, thinking about work-related problems which you don't normally have time to think about, engaging in your favourite leisure activity, or just sitting and dreaming. Contents: 1. Time creation techniques; Accurate feedback; Flow rates; Deadlines; Anticipatory scanning techniques; Selective perception of cues; Adequate incubation periods; Imaginative and intuitive responses; Critical incidents and learning periods; Timing and synchronization; Slippage and downtime; Flexible performance strategies; Critical analysis of performance; 2. Overcoming problems using time creation techniques; Elimination of faults; Motivation; Continuation and follow-up; Risk taking; Vigilance and attention; Maintaining maximum speed; Effects of variety of activity; Timewasting; 3. Applications in personal skills; Thinking; Reading; Writing; Listening and speaking; Social skills
