What Dr. Parry Can Say in an Interview:

Checking the news used to be a one-night affair with one’s favorite nightly newscasters and you were updated. Before TV, it was Radio or Newspaper over morning breakfast. Now we have a 24/7 news cycle that is in our face each day constantly streaming. 

What can we do to stay productive during the media overload each day? Check out some basics with these 5 tips:

1) Save News Updates for Personal Time. Distractions keep us from focusing our time and energy throughout the workday, and news updates are the #1 source of distraction. When you are working in the digital world, news of the election, the pandemic, storms, etc., are constantly bombarding us. They show up in google searches, social media news feeds, commercials on the radio, in water cooler discussions at work. While working, news should be work-focused. If a news alert hits you about the latest on the new stimulus package and that will affect your clients or marketing, that is news you can use that can help them. Avoid the mindless water cooler conversations that don’t stimulate working productivity. Save it for lunchtime or after hours events.

Finally, a leader knows how to get buy-in to make sure that changes and improvements are not just understood, but embraced by the employees.  Otherwise, more errors can be expected.

How the Coronavirus Has Ushered in
a New Digital Age

It has (1) reduced the reluctance of those who are put off by technology to use much that is available, and (2) increased the tendencies of those who like and use technology to find additional and better ways to use what is available.

5 Keys to Work, Success, and Happiness

Interview Phil Crowley.

Philip P. Crowley, is a dedicated attorney who has been handling legal matters for pharmaceutical, biomedical, medical devices, information technology and other technology companies for over 30 years. He has also spent nearly 25 years on the board of trustees of the Stevens Institute of Technology, with substantial involvement in the oversight of academic innovation and entrepreneurship.

 

Talking Points from Phil Crowley
on the 5 Keys to Work, Success, and Happiness:

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to observe many successful people, and I have found that there are five factors that seem common to them all—and missing in those who are not.

  1. Find something you LOVE to do that HELPS other people. if you love to do it, you’ll have an inexhaustible supply of energy for it. And if it helps others, there will always be a demand for it.
  2. Pursue it with PASSION and INTEGRITY. Passion will help you learn to do it well, and Integrity will attract others with integrity (and repel those who don’t).
  3. Set HIGH GOALS and decide to have SELF-CONFIDENCE. People who set high goals achieve much more than those with no or short-sighted goals; Self-confidence is a gift we give ourselves and is a decision that we make.
  4. ENJOY THE RIDE. The pleasure comes from the journey, not necessarily the ultimate destination.
  5. Be GRATEFUL. Recognize and celebrate the help others have given to you and pay it forward. Gratitude is an important value to embrace and share with those special people who had a successful hand in lifting you up.
