Why making my tasks emotional increased my productivity, by Robyn Scott on Medium
Michael Simmons stashed this in How To Be A Super Connector
A young entrepreneurs strategy for applying Adam Rifkin's strategy of 1-3 introductions per day.
Robyn's article has a strong start:
“Eat your own dog food” is, of course, wise advice for any entrepreneur — for anyone selling anything. But what if the eating is trickier than occasionally closing your eyes, pinching your nose and swallowing quickly. What if you have to build a habit too?
I started wondering about this puzzle, finding Pavlov’s proverbial bell, after reading an article on how Adam Rifkin, the world’s top relationship builder, makes introductions.
Adam’s principle 1: Make introductions every day.“An introduction is the most powerful daily action you can take to build [a network]. In just a few minutes, you can have a dramatic impact on the lives of two people and generate a large amount of goodwill for yourself and the overall community you’re building.”
Robyn says that committing to this practice every day has made her more productive AND happier.

Charles Duhigg's book is A+++!
I had the pleasure of mentoring Robyn when she was at the Unreasonable Institute. Great entrepreneur.
