Focus

The past two years I have been trying to find different methods to create a space of focus to create productivity. I have tried to create more structure like a to-do list or workout more. Both have given dull results. The past two weeks, I’ve found that there are a few keys to create more focus.

Remove Distractions — do not have your phone next to you and mute all notifications

Work in mini ‘sprints’ — create a time to work on a project or chuck of items for 90 minutes and take an immediate brake, go for a walk to get some sunshine.

Automate and/or outscore repetitive tasks — personal chores, investments, and taxes

Create a productivity space — declutter, have some plants around you, and have ergonomic furniture

Work Smarter, Not Harder. I’m trying to live by this now.


Love learned about product development, trying to pivot to a product role. Feel free to share any resources like newsletter, podcast, or courses.
