The Inner Game and Kanban


Timothy Gallwey's seminal 1974 work "The Inner Game of Tennis" showed that quieting mental interference can unlock higher performance — more so than sheer effort. Russell Healy, creator of a popular Kanban game and now a new work management tool, says Kanban can help knowledge workers minimize distraction and focus attention. [10:30]

Russell spoke at Lean Kanban North America (Modern Management Methods Conference) in San Francisco this May. Check out his site at and sign up for updates on his work management tool at

"We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore."

- Mark Twain
