6. Stumbled across a few pieces of great advice from an old Evernote project that will help your mindset and well-being in work.
Send fewer emails. Email creates email. The more you send, the more you’ll receive. A number of years ago, a colleague of mine experimented with sending less email – his inbox diminished quickly. You could even experiment with one day of the week where emails simply are not sent internally and see how this works for your team.
* Challenge your rules. Some rules are good and necessary, but many rules hold organisations and talented people back. Go on a crusade to eliminate the unnecessary rules in your business; remove the shackles that stifle creativity and passionate energy. If you’re a team leader, make a specific time and space (in your team meetings) for people to challenge the rules. Dumb rules kill ingenuity, passion, innovation and a host of powerful values in the name of conformity and rules for the sake of rules.
