A humorous SlideShare detailing martial arts master Bruce Lee’s approach to boosting productivity.
Close your eyes, grasshopper. And imagine a time when music came in cardboard sleeves, your “virtual communication tool” was a phone box, and nobody minded if the soundtrack of a movie didn’t sync with the characters’ lips.
This was the time of martial arts legend Bruce Lee.
Emerging from a 5,000 year old culture, he had great respect for the traditions of his ancestors. But when it came to productivity he was a thoroughly modern man. He built his skills using what later decades would call “life hacking” – short-cuts and best practices to get the job done.
Bruce wasn’t just a master of the five-point palm exploding heart technique; he was also a master of project scoping and effective execution. So if you’re ready to study with the master, let’s enter the temple of productivity … and turn Jeet-Kune-Do into Jeet-Kune-DONE.
Here ends our lesson. Like all areas of expertise, productivity has a Tao, an essential core of knowledge. This slideshare sums up the key skills of working smarter: master them, and you shall become a force of nature in the connected workplace.
And of course, like all sons of Hong Kong, remember to say “Ayeeeyaaah!” a lot. It’s the best word ever.
- From collaborative project or screaming fist, Bruce Lee is the man to learn from.
- Singular focus and deliberate actions are the keys to greater productivity.
- Try everything, but be ruthless in discarding what doesn’t work.
