By now I have a large bag of tricks that work amazing for sitting down and busting out copy.
But there's one trick that supersedes these all. In fact, it's how I discovered all the tricks that work.
I keep a journal of my success/failure with productivity.
Whenever I'm not finishing work or a goal as fast as I should, I write down what's distracting me or what kept me from doing it.
After a while, it was quite a list. I now refer to these as my "Failure Secrets."
Before I started writing failure secrets down, I'd repeat the same mistakes over and over.
But once I started paying attention to what keeps me off task, I was able to plan and create an environment that allows me to be the most productive.
Writing down failure secrets is what has allowed me to discover nearly all of my success secrets as well.
If you haven't tried keeping a journal of your productivity to find your own success/failure secrets, give it a shot. It may be your next breakthrough.
