  This Four Letter Word Will Boost Your Productivity
by Alexandra Levit - Aug, 2015
Perfectionists are often reminded that “done is better than perfect.” But it turns out that there’s another reason we should all try to create more “done” moments in our workdays. Fellow Fast Track writer Alison Green tipped me off to a great new study on productivity, and it reminded me of a British sci-fi movie I just watched called Frequencies. In it, human beings interact with the world and with each other based on thei...

  How to Cope Effectively With Discomfort at Work
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
There’s no way to prevent change and the discomfort that comes along with it, especially in the unpredictable 21st century business world. What you can do, though, is learn to be at peace while chaos swirls around you. When I entered the business world for the first time, I took my Type-A self with me.

  Are You Teaching Your Employees to Fish?
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
Teaching your employees to be self-sufficient benefits the productivity of the whole team. As I write this, the New York Times has just reported on a 30-year-old man who shot his rich dad because the father had the nerve to decrease his allowance a few hundred dollars. The dad had been paying the son’s pricey Manhattan rent and was also giving him spending money. He cut the latter down a bit and paid for it with his life....
