Tony Schwartz, the president and CEO of The Energy Project and the author of Be Excellent at Anything, identifies four myths found in many organizations:
- Myth #1: Multitasking is critical in a world of infinite demand.
- Myth #2: A little bit of anxiety helps us perform better.
- Myth #3: Creativity is genetically inherited, and it’s impossible to teach.
- Myth #4: The best way to get more work done is to work longer hours.
Are these myths present in your organization? It is easy to adopt the practices and habits of the organization in which you work– is this how you want to work?
