年轻的商界精英有哪些工作技巧?

Megan Arnold 2019年07月17日

这些年轻人每天都长时间工作,但仍然有空闲去享受个人生活。

今年《财富》全球40位40岁以下商界精英的飞行里程和开会时间很可能比大多数人想象中的都要更长。我们请他们分享提升效率的技巧,应用技巧之后可以有时间做大量的工作,甚至还能够留出一点时间去享受个人生活。

下面是其中的一些回复。

杰茜·威兹德姆,37岁

Humu联合创始人兼首席执行官

每周伊始,我就列出一周里想完成的事情,写的时候用已经做完的语气,比如说“白皮书撰写完毕”,或是“成功会见了团队的每个成员”等。显然,每周实际情况都不会完全按照计划进行,但是用这种框架来小小地推动一下,确实能够鼓励我担起责任。

特雷弗·马丁,30岁

Mammoth Biosciences联合创始人兼首席执行官

确保有避免电话或短信干扰的空间,留出时间专注完成重要的事情,而不是等到事情变得紧急时才去做。

艾莉森·阿特威尔, 31岁

亚马逊语音用户界面设计师

我有个原则:总是全神贯注于面前的东西。做X事时,Y事就要往后排。如果我在会议中听某个人讲话,就不会让手机分散注意力。这已经成为我用来平衡生活的强制手段。如果我对某件事、某个项目、又或是某个关系做不到全神贯注争取成功,就表明我该调整了。如果抽不出时间,就意味着我的注意力太过分散。这种习惯提升了我的工作效率,在各种关系中更加快乐,也变成了技术更娴熟的登山家。

迈克·戈伦斯坦,33岁

Cronos集团首席执行官

我工作中最大的秘诀是,对每件事情都用解决方案为导向的方法。与其纠结为什么流程会出问题,不如找出最优解决方案并实施。

奥默·伊斯梅尔,39岁

高盛美国消费者业务主管

管好日程,否则就会被日程牵制。我每天花一小时处理电子邮件,而不是整天都在赶进度,在日历上每周留出十个小时的“思考时间”,每周还要抽两个小时了解公司同事的情况。

克里斯托·卡尔曼,38岁

TransferWise联合创始人兼首席执行官

对于工作和旅行,我最大的建议是确保睡眠充足。为了把工作做好,我会安排一天让自己睡到自然醒。旅行方面,尤其是在长途航班上,全程我都会补觉。另外,我五年前就戒酒了。

萨姆·拉波波特,38岁

NFL橄榄球发展高级总监

我每次坐飞机都穿同一套衣服,一身黑加Yeezy运动鞋。这样一来,我就不用每次登机前都要想应该穿什么,而且非常舒适。

恩里克·杜布格拉斯,23岁

Brex联合创始人兼首席执行官

我是巴西人,午餐喜欢吃很长时间。即使在最忙碌的时候,我仍然会找机会坐下来吃一顿正经的午餐,这样可以让大脑清醒。我不会只吃个三明治或沙拉对付,很多美国人似乎都喜欢。

帕里萨·塔布里兹,36岁

谷歌Chrome浏览器工程总监

我总会随身带一袋杏仁或坚果,万一在工作中、在路上或外出时突然饿了就可以吃。饥饿容易导致错误的决定,造成不必要的损害,所以我会尽量让自己的手边有健康食品能吃或分享给别人。

阿莉希亚·蒙塔诺,33岁

美国中长跑项目名将

我总是带孩子们一起旅行,所以准则就是简单为上。每人一件随身行李,其他都不要!如果有些东西可带可不带,那就不带了。

最喜欢的工具和应用程序。

有些时候,只要工具合适就能够把工作做好。以下是《财富》全球40位40岁以下商界精英不可或缺的工具和应用:

利兹·迈耶德克,37岁

Uber Eats全球业务拓展主管

可以切换时区的数字手表。知道家里的时间,我跟家人保持联系也方便点。

迈克尔·克拉西奥斯,32岁

白宫科技政策办公室美国首席技术官

Spar是我还在硅谷时有个朋友开发的应用程序,能够帮忙养成良好的习惯,包括多读书、健身等等,也可以对朋友更负责。

迈克尔·米尼亚诺,36岁

Anchor联合创始人兼首席执行官

Todoist能够帮助我跟踪每天必须完成的诸多事务,非常简洁明了,我很喜欢。

赵鹏,36岁

Citadel Securities首席执行官

Slack(工作)、Spotify(生活)和微信(生活)。

瑞恩·威廉姆斯,31岁

Cadre联合创始人兼首席执行官

1. Todoist应用程序

2. Audible应用程序

3. Tidal应用程序

4. Bible应用程序

5. Calm应用程序

克里斯托·卡尔曼,38岁

TransferWise联合创始人兼首席执行官

我在Zoom和Slack上花了很多时间,Looker和GitHub对工作效率的提升也让我很惊喜。

乔伊·布拉姆维尼,29岁

Algorithmic Justice League创始人

有个能够记录创意、想法、诗句的记事本就行。数字记事本还是实体记事本并不重要,重要的是收集未完全成型的想法,以备随后回顾和提炼。

皮特·布蒂吉格,37岁

美国总统候选人兼印第安纳州南本德市长

只要有支笔、牙刷、音乐和牛肉干,我在哪里都能够活下去。(财富中文网)

The members of this year's 40 Under 40 class likely log more miles in the air and hours in meetings than most of us can imagine. We asked them to share their personal productivity hacks—tricks that allow them to squeeze in massive amounts of work, and might even leave a little time left over for, you know, a life.

See some of the responses below.

Jessie Wisdom, 37

Cofounder & CEO, Humu

At the start of every week, I write down everything I want to accomplish. But I write it down as if I already have, like “Finalized the white paper,” or “Successfully met with each person on my team.” Obviously, no week goes perfectly according to plan, but the little nudge of the framing really helps me to hold myself accountable.

Trevor Martin, 30

Cofounder & CEO, Mammoth Biosciences

Mak[e] sure to create space without distractions like calls or messages and set aside time to focus on what's important rather than urgent.

Alison Atwell, 31

Voice User Interface (VUI) Designer, Amazon

I have one rule: I always give what’s in front of me my undivided attention. If it’s time to work on X, Y has to wait. If I’m giving someone my time in a meeting, my phone won’t be there to compete for attention. It’s been a forcing function for balancing my life. If I’m not giving enough undivided attention to one thing or project or relationship to be successful, It’s a sign I need to adjust. If I don’t have that kind of time, it means I’ve spread myself too thin. This has made me much more productive at work, happier in my relationships, and a much better mountaineer.

Mike Gorenstein, 33

CEO, Cronos Group

My best work hack is to have a solutions-oriented approach to everything. Instead of trying to figure out why a bad process was put in place, figure out the optimal solution and implement it.

Omer Ismail, 39

Head of U.S. Consumer Business, Goldman Sachs

Manage your calendar or your calendar will manage you. I dedicate one hour a day for emails rather than trying to keep pace throughout the day, block off ten hours a week of “think time” on my calendar and two hours a week of office hours for catch ups with colleagues throughout the organization.

Kristo Käärmann, 38

Cofounder & CEO, TransferWise

My best advice for work and travel is to make sure you get enough sleep. To do my best work, I arrange my day such that I don't need an alarm clock to get up. For travel, especially on long haul flights, I sleep throughout the whole flight. I also stopped drinking alcohol 5 years ago.

Sam Rapoport, 38

Senior Director of Football Development, NFL

I wear the exact same outfit every time I fly. All black and my Yeezys. It reduces the amount of decisions I have to make before I get on a flight and I’m extremely comfortable.

Henrique Dubugras, 23

Cofounder & CEO, Brex

I am Brazilian so I appreciate a long lunch. Even during the busiest times I still find the opportunity to sit down and have a proper lunch to clear my mind - not just a sandwich or some salad scarfed down like many Americans seem to love.

Parisa Tabriz, 36

Senior Director of Engineering for Chrome, Alphabet

I almost always have a bag of almonds or nuts on me in case I get hungry at work, on the road, or when out and about. Hunger leads to bad decisions and unnecessary victims, so I try to keep healthy calories within reach to eat or share.

Alysia Montaño, 33

U.S. National Champion runner

I almost always travel with my kids so my rule is: Keep it simple. One carry on per person, and that’s it! If it can’t fit in the carry on it doesn’t need to come.

Favorite Tools and Apps

Sometimes, doing your best work is all about having the right tools. Here are the tools and apps our 40 under 40 can’t live without:

Liz Meyerdirk, 37

Global Head of Business Development, Uber Eats

A digital watch that can toggle between timezones. Knowing what time it is at home really helps me stay connected to my family.

Michael Kratsios, 32

U.S. Chief Technology Officer designate, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

Spar—an app a friend developed when I was in Silicon Valley. It helps you get into good habits—reading more, working out, etc.—and holds you accountable with friends.

Michael Mignano, 36

Cofounder & CEO, Anchor

Todoist helps me keep track of the many things I have to get done on a daily basis. It’s super straightforward, and I love it.

Peng Zhao, 36

CEO, Citadel Securities

Slack (work), Spotify (personal), and WeChat (personal).

Ryan Williams, 31

Cofounder & CEO, Cadre

1. Todoist app

2. Audible app

3. Tidal app

4. Bible app

5. Calm app

Kristo Käärmann, 38

Cofounder & CEO, TransferWise

I spend a lot of time on Zoom and Slack. I’m also mega impressed with the productivity boost I get from Looker and GitHub.

Joy Buolamwini, 29

Founder, Algorithmic Justice League

A notebook to capture ideas, thoughts, poetic phrases. Sometimes it’s digital, sometimes it’s physical, but the important part is collecting sparks of ideas that aren't fully formed to revisit and refine.

Pete Buttigieg, 37

Presidential Candidate & Mayor of South Bend, IN

I can survive pretty much anywhere as long as I’ve got a pen, a toothbrush, some music, and beef jerky.
