Strategy for Rapid Productivity During the Day

6 replies
I'm a hunter of things that work. I like to seek out and find things that people think can't be done, and then learn how to do them. (mostly so I can say na na na na na) JK! Really it's because I have developed an insatiable thirst for new knowledge, and I like to challenge the status quo.

Having become a full time entrepreneur (no more time wasting job), I spend a lot of time cranking out content, creating programs and generating strategies for high performance. That means that I have to be able to produce results consistently to maintain what I've built, and continue to expand massively.

I was listening to Eben Pagan talk about productivity and it sparked an idea in my mind: Take breaks in between work.

The strategy I created out of that is this:

Create a list of 10, 10 minute actions (writing an article, doing a video etc), engage in 5 of the actions, and then take 30 minutes and COMPLETELY UNPLUG.

Don't think about work, don't think about email, shut your entire operation down and stop.

While you are in your unplugged condition, do something that makes you laugh. There are literally thousands of youtube videos that can make you crack up laughing!

So, 5, 10 minute actions, then 30 minutes of being totally unplugged watching something that makes you laugh. I've skyrocketed my productivity just from doing this!

Thanks for reading.

    Doing breaks like this, I'll probably lose focus and I'll have even less productivity. But for some people may works.

    I always try doing the same thing. But watching YouTube videos often lead to my RSS reader notifying me of something and so on...

    Always take some free time between tasks. I do it successfully. It can help your mind get clear and your body to relax.

    I use a timer application in my computer to track my working and my resting time.

    I explained the process in other thread (link on signature)
