14 Tips To Double Your Productivity In 14 Days

In today’s world people like to say how busy they are, but truth is most people are busy being busy and productivity is at all time low. Just because you are doing some kind of stuff doesn’t mean that’s good for you or others and it serves a greater purpose besides maybe getting more money in the pocket of the person you work for.
We need personal and interpersonal change and we need it NOW!
The best thing you can do for others is doing what is best for you first. This way when you can take care of yourself and you improve you can set and be an example for others to do the same. It’s up to you! Don’t wait others to change, they wont. It’s you who has to do it!
Don’t try to be productive to impress others. Do it because it can save you time and energy that can be used for more meaningful things than swiping on  stupid social media or watching Big Brother or whatever. This is something designed to steal your time. It’s the most important asset you have. It does’t come back once wasted!
The sooner you start the faster the results will come! Trust me, it takes exactly two weeks to change some even deeply rooted habits!

1. Turn off all technology for 60 minutes a day and focus on doing your most important work.

2. Work in 90 minute cycles (tons of science is now confirming that this is the optimal work to rest ratio).

3. Start your day with at least 15 minutes of exercise.

4. Don’t check your email first thing in the morning.

5. Turn all your electronic notifications off.

6. Take one day a week as a complete recovery day, to refuel and regenerate (that means no email, no phone calls and zero work). You need full recovery one day a week otherwise you’ll start depleting your capabilities.

7. The data says workers are interrupted every 11 minutes. Distractions destroy productivity. Learn to protect your time and say no to interruptions.

8. Work in blocks of time. Creative geniuses all had 2 things in common: when they worked they were fully engaged and when they worked, they worked with this deep concentration for long periods of time. Rare in this world of entrepreneurs who can’t sit still.

9. Drink at least two glasses of water early every morning. We wake up dehydrated. The most precious asset of an entrepreneur isn’t time – it’s energy. Water restores it.

10. Don’t answer your phone every time it rings.

11. Invest in your professional development so you bring more value to the hours you work.

12. Avoid gossip and time vampires.

13. Touch paper just once.

14. Keep a “Stop Doing List”.

Now go!
