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.
