Tech Management Tips

• Schedule email time, keep it in its place, spend first 20 minutes of day focusing on nourishing tasks.
• Separate work from personal inbox.
• Delay responding to stressful emails.
• Create a default signature that is friendly and minimalist

If these tips fail to work, you may want to consider seeing a therapist. This is not suggesting that you have some deep disorder as much as some coaching and accountability may help you break your slave hood to tech.

When Your Friend is Suffering….

When Your Friend is Suffering….

Do Not Say:

  • “I know how you feel” – as close as you may be, you don’t.
  • “This is God’s plan” – Can be confusing, unhelpful or enraging.
  • “If you need anything, give me a call” – puts undue pressure on the one already suffering. Just do it.
  • Saying nothing – probably the worst, most painful.

Seeking Advice

We often fail to seek advice because it makes us look bad or less than. The research reports the contrary. When we seek advice people are flattered that you think so well of them. So in fact, being asked for advice is flattering and it increases their self-confidence. In other words, others think you were smart to ask them because they are so smart. But, the seeker must be certain that the person they are seeking advice from does know the answer or else the results backfire.
Conclusion: Seek advice, just ensure the person you ask thinks they know the topic.
