你可能听说过在此之前建议。您甚至可能已经遵循了一段时间。您甚至可能已经读了这本书:Never Check Email in the Morning。但是,如果你喜欢我什么,你试图避免在早上电子邮件,和它的工作了一段时间,你溜回你的老习惯了。

我们告诉自己的各种各样的说法,为什么我们要在早上检查电子邮件。这里有一些事情,我告诉自己:

  • 这是有效的检查,并从手机删除电子邮件一边喝我的早晨咖啡。
  • It’s important to know what’s coming for the day.
  • There may be something urgent I need to respond to.
  • I can quickly scan my emails and then move on to other tasks.


尽管我可能会告诉我自己,我没有那么重要。如果我不检查我的电子邮件整个上午什么也不会发生。而且,虽然它可能看起来高效的扫描我的电子邮件早上,事实并非如此。

I recently read this great book by Cal Newport calledDeep Work。In that book, he describes research which reveals it is harder to focus after checking email or social media. He explains that any activity you do affects your level of focus in the next activity you engage in. Thus, even if you take five minutes to scan your email or scroll through Twitter, that experience will leave a residue. The “attention residue” from email or social media is detrimental to your ability to focus on the next task. Email and social media are particularly detrimental to activities that require a high level of focus such as writing.


You will be able to achieve a higher level of focus and clarity in your writing if you get your writing done before checking your email and social media accounts.

我是系主任,今年,我必须要大量的电子邮件在和其他行政能力作出回应。在秋季学期,我能够处理这些责任,同时也越来越我的写作在九月和十月完成。十一月,但是,我添加了三个外的镇前往我已经挤满时间表和我的写作倒在了路边。回过头来看,主要的原因一个我在十一月做了这么少的写作是我开始了我的天回复邮件。当我打开我的电子邮件,这是很难实现的,我需要让我的写作进度的焦点。

When I couldn’t focus on my writing, I turned to social media, which was a further distraction from my writing.

因此,在即将到来的春季学期,我要避免电子邮件和所有的社会媒体,直到我完成我的写作任务的一天。然后,我将同时限制活动,以每天的特定时间。

My plan is to wake up at 6am, write for one hour, take my daughter to school, go for a run, have breakfast, and then sit down for my second writing session. Once my second session is over, I will check my emails. I then will close my email and check it again at the end of the day. At 5pm, I will log out of my email and close the program until the next day. InDeep Work,加州新港还建议不必工作日的正式结束,让心灵时间重置和重新聚焦。

I also set up my phone so that I am limited to a total of 30 minutes per day on social media. I will only engage with social media once I have finished my writing and will avoid social media after dinner. This will allow me more time to spend focusing on my family as well as reading great books.

它不应该是我很难月份期间保持这个程序,因为我的学期没有正式开始,直到1月14日和类不开始,直到1月21日。因此,没有人希望从我在这段时间内快速响应。我希望,我会底气和一月份期间,我的写作灵感的生产力,而我将因此保持这种积极的学期的其余部分。

你呢?怎样才能让你得到控制你的电子邮件和社交媒体的习惯?

Calling all Workaholics! Fifteen Things You Can Do When You Are Not Working

Time To Read
我承认:我一直在呼吁不止一次一个工作狂。我一定要让自己的时间和我的家人,但我很难有“下降时间”,在那里我坐在那里看电视或在沙发上放松和凝视送入太空。首先,我不看电视,其次,我找到...... 30秒后凝视空间无聊。

As a working mother of three children, I don’t have a whole lot of free time. But, there are moments when my husband takes the kids for the day, or when the children are off at a friend’s house, and I actually do have time to myself. It is hard for me not to use that precious time to write or do laundry. But, I find having a list of things to do other than working is helpful as a reminder of all of the things one could do in those rare moments of free time.

我怀疑我是不是唯一的人在那里谁都有麻烦放松和没有工作或做家务。在这篇文章中,我提供的,当你不工作,你可以做的活动清单...。

十五的事情,当你不工作,你可以做...
  1. 读一本小说
  2. 在电话中交谈friends
  3. Go for a walk outside
  4. Attend an event at university concert hall or museum
  5. Watch a movie or TV show at home
  6. Soak in the bathtub
  7. 参加舞蹈类
  8. 邀请人在喝酒或晚餐
  9. Go to the movies, a restaurant, or a wine tasting with friends
  10. 单独或去健身房锻炼或运动类的哥们
  11. Engage in creative activity: writing, art, crafts
  12. Do yoga or meditate
  13. 往往花园
  14. 库克新的配方
  15. 收听广播或播客
If you rarely or never do these sorts of activities, you might just be a workaholic. Remember, rest and relaxation important for the mind, body and soul. Give yourself permission to do something you enjoy. You deserve a break!

The Importance of Sharing Your Work

Scholarly writing is a conversation with other academics. These conversations happen in formal venues such as academic journals and books, in less formal settings such as academic conferences and colloquia and in informal ways through the sharing of works in progress with colleagues. To be fully engaged with the conversation, it is crucial for academics to participate in all three of these sorts of exchanges.

In Print: Formal Conversations

如果你是一个学术与需要研究生产力教授职位,我没有告诉你,你需要发布。这已经摆明了要你,当你被录用,你应该有你的机构的要求有所了解。有关于你需要的位置和程度发布微妙的种种,但你知道你需要做的,不知何故和某处。

Conferencing: Semi-Formal Conversations

你可能也知道,你需要参加会议。即使你找到展示您作品在会议可怕的,或者如果您发现学术会议绝对无法忍受的,你还是要做到这一点,至少直到你获得终身职位的想法。在会议参与是在你的领域获得知名度,研究了解的最新趋势,以及正在进行的工作得到的反馈是至关重要的。它是要弄清楚你应该参加什么会议,并尽一切努力参与其中非常重要的。

Sharing Work in Progress: Informal Conversations

Most new and aspiring academics know about the importance of conference participation and academic publishing, because they are visible aspects of faculty life: people put conference presentations and academic papers on their CVs. What is less visible, yet equally important, is sharing your work in informal ways with trusted colleagues. I would recommend never sending out an article or book chapter for publication without first obtaining feedback from someone you know and trust, and preferably from several people.

Getting feedback in informal ways is important because it allows you to share your work in a less polished form. If you don’t feel as if you are completely done with something, you will be more open to feedback and more willing to change your arguments and ideas on the basis of your reviewers’ suggestions.

In many cases, sharing your work can boost your confidence. We are often our own worst critics, and it can be a real pleasure to hear our colleagues point out how important and well-executed our work is. When you request informal feedback, you can expect honest advice on how to improve your work and finalize it for submission. Often, this will give you the final push you need to send your manuscript out for formal review.

Sharing your work is also important because it can save you lots of time in the peer review process. On average, peer reviews take about six months. You often can get a friend or colleague to read a paper for you and provide feedback in less than one month. (It is always important to agree on a time frame when you give a paper to a colleague for review to ensure that the process is in fact efficient.)

如何得到反馈:启动对话

When I was in graduate school, I had no problem getting feedback on my work. Every seminar paper I handed in came back with comments; I could ask my advisor or other members of my committee for comments; and I also had my fellow graduate students on hand to ask for feedback. When I became a faculty member, it quickly became apparent to me that I needed to broaden my networks to continue to get useful feedback. There are several ways to do this.

Tit for Tat: Exchange work with a colleague

一个从同事得到反馈的最佳方式是提供给交流工作。如果你们俩是在一个类似的阶段,你可以同意,以满足地方的早晨,在此期间,你在一个阅读对方的草稿另一个人的存在,并提供反馈意见,同日上午。那种瞬时反馈是在效率方面无与伦比。

如果你这个n’t find a friend who is at an identical stage as you, you also can ask someone to read something, with the promise that you will return the favor in the future. Many academics have close friends and colleagues with whom they have a permanent exchange relationship: they always read each other’s work at various stages of progress. The advantage to the exchange relationship is that you don’t feel as if you are posing a burden, as you know you will be returning the favor soon.

形成了编写组,并建立社区的过程

Another strategy is to form a writing group with colleagues who live near you. You can agree that, over the course of the semester, you will meet four times, and at each meeting, you will discuss one work in progress. This is not always the most efficient way to get feedback, but it is valuable for several reasons. First of all, the dynamics of group feedback are different from individual feedback, and you will get more in-depth and complex feedback than if you just have one reader. For this reason, this sort of group exchange is often best for work in an earlier stage of progress. Secondly, this sort of writing group helps to build community; building community is important for your mental well-being. Finally, it is good for you to know what others at your institution are up to, and it is important for them to have a good idea what you are working on. That way, if a speaker is invited to campus or if there is an initiative related to your work, you will be sure to be involved.

Everyone Does It!

Sharing your published work as well as your work in progress is crucial for any academic. If you need proof of how common this is, I suggest you open up any academic book or article and take a look at the long list of acknowledgements. Most books go on for two or three paragraphs in which the author thanks all of the people that have provided feedback during the writing progress. Most articles list a half a dozen people who have reviewed the work informally.

无论您使用的策略,这是至关重要的,你想出一个办法之前,通过正式的审核过程中有值得信赖的朋友和同事分享您的非正式工作。它将使你的工作做得更好,让你在你的写作信心,并节省您的时间,从长远来看。
