Include a Fluff Cycle in your DayBy
Every Lean Enterprise practices all kinds of cycles with PDCA being the most prevalent. But has anyone ever asked you to include a Fluff Cycle? My idea of a Fluff Cycle is a deliberate effort to reward you after a period of intense concentration. Greg explains how he uses this technique to enable short bursts of useful concentration amidst his busy, distracted and multitasking life.
Ok, the video does not exactly explain the Fluff Cycle, it explains the Pomodoro Technique. But I like the idea of spending some time scheduling what you are going to do during that non-intense time. If you have several Fluff Cycles organized for those times, you will have something to look forward too. It is like having 10 pieces of candy lined up so that during each Fluff Cycle I would have a reward waiting. Simply stated don’t leave your Fluff Cycle go to waste.
However, I do recommend that during one of those Fluff Cycles that you do absolutely nothing. That is the essence of Fluff anyway.
