8 Ways to Boost Your Productivity
August 12, 2020
Never miss a post?
Have a to-do list and a pending list
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
Disrupt the To-do list
“Even people who aren’t geniuses can outthink the rest of mankind if they develop certain thinking habits.”
An aside on getting the right things done: one thing I like to do when looking at my daily to-do list or even my weekly to-dos is asking myself this simple question: “Is there one item in it, that if done, will make all others obsolete?”
“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”
To minimize disruption and manage time as best as possible, I’d recommend following a 5-minute rule. By that, I mean: if an appearing task takes 5 minutes or less of your time to be completed, then do it right away. If it takes more, schedule it for later and finish your current task as planned.
Listen to Productivity-Boosting Music
“To write is human, to edit is divine.”
Work for 50 Minutes then take a 10-minute break
“It’s very refreshing to go away and take a break, to clear your head, and just get into something else.”
Use a Pencil and Paper
“A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.”
Hire people to do the low-impact high-labor tasks
“I choose lazy person to do the hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”
Use Nootropics to Your Advantage
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.“
There also are universal natural nootropics that cover every single aspect above: MAXIMUM MIND enables one of the highest known naturally achievable increases in long-term brain function, translated into focus, memory, clarity, and balanced mood while being safe, health-preserving, and non-addictive.
“I know the mind, like the parachute, is most valuable open.”
― Dan S. Kennedy
That’s it for now. I hope you found one or the other trips useful and can apply these ways to boost your productivity in your life.
There’s only so much you can achieve with pure discipline and increasing your productivity. But applying a bit of lateral thinking to buy time at low cost (also called hiring people) so that you can focus on the things that only you can do (increasing leverage) goes a long way.
Further, all productivity techniques and considerations become increasingly more valuable when you can share them with your team.
