Are You Making This Productivity Mistake?

Relax, Breathe, Become Productive

There are many ways to double productivity. And when productivity is doubled, life becomes easier and results are made faster.

If we complete the most important tasks of the day in the beginning of our days, it sets a flow for our day and increase our productivity.

Breaks should be taken too because breaks allow us to focus more when we are actually working.

Many of us start our days without breakfast, without taking proper times for ourselves.

We also haphazardly focus on work in a bad manner, we tackle the urgent matters before the important matters.

Usually urgent matters are not important matters and important matters are not urgent.

An example of an urgent event is when someone wants to complete an expensive report so they can submit it.

An important matter would be writing that important business proposal which can bring in $30,000 of additional revenue.

We need to start our days off on a better foot by focusing on the important matters first.

A morning ritual is necessary. A morning ritual is something we would do every morning which will clear our mind and prepare us for the day.

An example would be:

  1. Wake Up
  2. Drink half a liter of water
  3. Brushing Teeth and using Bathroom
  4. Exercise for 20-30 minutes
  5. Shower
  6. 5 minutes of Meditation
  7. 30 Minutes of Positive non Fiction Reading

After a morning ritual is finished, the first 2 hours of a day should be spent doing the most important tasks of the day.

These first 2 hours should be spent in 50 or 25 minute chunks with 10 minute or 5 minutes breaks.

At the end of the 2nd 50 minute or 4th 25 minute chunk, a 30 minute break would be taken.

An example would be:

  1. 50 Minutes of Focused Work
  2. 10 Minute Break
  3. 50 Minutes of Focused Work
  4. 30 Minute Break

During the 50 minutes of focused work, we turn off our cell phones, close our doors, close our email programs, and let everyone know not to bother us for 50 minutes.

We’d also set a timer for 50 minutes, personally I use the free program focus booster.

During our 50 minutes of focused work, we also don’t multi task, we focus on one task.

During our 10 and 30 minute breaks, we completely unplug from our work. Maybe we take a walk, get some water, or Facebook it up, whatever it is, it is not related to work.

Doing these 50 minutes chunks of focused works I find more than doubles my productivity.

It actually makes it 400% more effective, because instead of writing part of blog posts, creating parts of videos, I’m able to complete them.

Spending our time doing the important things in our lives in focused chunks makes the rest of our day flow.

We can spend the rest of the day taking care of the urgent matters or keep focusing on the important matters.

If we keep focusing on the urgent matters first, it feels like we are being productive.

More than anything, we are just spinning our wheels if we focus on urgent matters.

How will you be more productive today?
