Working toward long-term goals is difficult for everybody, because it requires such extensive efforts in delaying gratification. This talk will present practical guidelines and techniques that help you optimize your personal productivity, based on the most recent neuroscience.
You will first learn about advances in neuro-psychology and get insights into how our brains work. We will then discuss ways to apply this knowledge to your own work situation and let it guide your best practices. In particular, we will talk about prioritizing, realistic and sustainable scheduling, increasing focus and concentration, and about the fine art of taking breaks and recharging.
