There is lot to appreciate, take in and learn from Julie’s new book, which goes into great depth about creating a satisfying work environment.  As creatives, we’re partial to the following three chapters of The Work Revolution:

  • Energy
  • Priorities
  • Strengths

Energy Counts.

Julie basically says that no one should have to be at work before 10am. Well to be more precise, she advocates for personal awareness of energy levels, because knowing them leads to maximum efficiency at the office. The ideal scenario she uses in The Work Revolution is to arrive for work around 10am and squeeze in some exercise during lunch, which keeps energy at a high for the rest of the day.

If the hours between 2-4pm feel like nap time to you, Julie’s suggestion regarding energy flows may offset the work slump and make your afternoons more enjoyable and productive.

Priorities are everything.

Earlier this year we posted about how you can’t do everything. Unless you’re a superhero, everyday is about choices. Julie hits the nail on the head when she reminds us the importance of setting priorities. Not only does narrowing in on a select few options simpilfy our lives, it also increases our likelihood for success.

What can you cut out, and what can you get serious about? The answer to this question is where you’ll really be able to shine and begin to make significant progress.

Strengths get you everywhere.

One of our favorite guest posts centers on identifying and developing your strengths. For individuals, Julie’s advice about strengths involves sharing them with your superiors and “ditching the guilt.” In short, we shouldn’t dwell when coming across work that doesn’t suit us. Similar to knowing our priorities, having a deep sense of our strengths means we are more able to focus and achieve better results.

The part on strengths additionally covers what leaders and organizations can do to optimize situations, which is helpful, as are the other sections of the book. The above three featured chapters are only the tip of the iceberg, and we feel they’re quick and easy ways to rethink the way we work.
