Paige Wilcox Tue, Aug 27, 2019 @ 12:41 PM

What makes an Annual Planning session successful? Meaningful discussion around the right topics is a start, but you don't get there by happy accident. To maximize your team's valuable time, you want to make sure your session is set up for success. Here are some tips to lead into the session prepared to make significant breakthroughs in the year ahead.

  1. Set the Date — You should take at least two days (or more) to give the team enough time to discuss, debate and agree on the right Annual Initiatives for the coming year. Try to schedule the session to take place before the year actually starts.

Personal Productivity Essentials

Paige Wilcox Thu, Jul 11, 2019 @ 01:34 PM

In an effort to Keep Smart — which is one of our Core Values here at Rhythm Systems — I recently attended a workshop on "Personal Productivity Essentials" to get some new tips and perspectives from Austin Bristow.

Austin talked a lot about personal discipline, and although "discipline" is a word with some negative connotations, it really should be seen as a process that gives you more freedom—freedom to focus on the things you want to do, freedom to maximize your time, freedom to say "no," etc.

A strong company culture is not a nice to have—it's a need to have. Your company's culture touches every part of your business, so don't be fooled by thinking you can put off making changes until later—it's affecting your bottom line right now.

Improving your culture, the team accountability across your company, and your overall employee engagement starts at the top. So what are ways you can lead your team towards a better culture? Here are 10 of them:

The Plight of the Task Delayer

Paige Wilcox Wed, Feb 20, 2019 @ 11:00 AM

Do you put off minor to-dos until they build up and become absolutely urgent? Why do we do this to ourselves, and how can we procrastinators break our vicious cycles?

Writer Amanda Mull addressed this very topic in an article in The Atlantic called, "Why People Wait 10 Days to Do Something That Takes 10 Minutes." She cited that many of us fall into a "task delayer" category (as opposed to a "chronic procrastinator," which is described as a more intense but rarer type, thankfully).

What Sets Successful People Apart

Paige Wilcox Tue, Nov 27, 2018 @ 11:05 AM

There can often be a misconception that a person working 100 hours a week is more successful than a peer logging half those hours. That’s not necessarily true, considering the metric "hours of hard work" doesn’t give a full picture of the results actually being achieved.

Give Thanks

Paige Wilcox Wed, Nov 21, 2018 @ 11:08 AM

A Core Value that resonates strongly at Rhythm Systems is "Be Appreciative." That's why an episode of employee appreciationHurry Slowly, a podcast about pacing yourself to uncover creativity and meaning in your work, that addressed the power of appreciation and generosity caught my eye—or ear, rather.

Knowledge Is Power

Paige Wilcox Tue, May 29, 2018 @ 11:00 AM

How can you use a methodology and platform like Rhythm if you’re not fully in the know on all of the tips, features and functions offered? There’s bound to be something left on the table that could make your life easier, and you may not even know you need it yet.  

A great way to get more value out of Rhythm is by moving through our certification program. To start, we offer a comprehensive Fan Certification that provides an understanding of our core methodology and themes (keep in mind, we also have a Fast Track version of this if you’re short on time. Email for the details).

How to Set Clear Goals for Your Priorities

Paige Wilcox Wed, Apr 25, 2018 @ 11:00 AM

Priorities—not to be mistaken for KPIs —outline the work you plan on doing in a given amount of time in order to achieve your desired results. A key component in achieving those desired results is clearly defining them.

You need to specify what success looks like first so you can effectively plan for  meeting —and exceeding—those measures of success.
