Tips for Productivity
- Follow The Two-Minute Rule: First and foremost, we encourage you to adhere to the two-minute rule. The rule is coined by entrepreneur Steve Olenski. The two-minute rule is defined as “If you see a task or action that you know can be done in two minutes or less, do it immediately.” Completing the task right away takes less time than having to go back to it later. Furthermore, it’s about making the most of even the smallest moments in life.
- Work in 90-minute intervals: Secondly, researchers at Florida State University found elite performers (athletes, chess players, musicians, etc.) who work in intervals of less than 90 minutes are more productive than those who work 90 minutes-plus. That being said it’s important to give yourself a break instead of grinding through so you can become more focused. Also, they found that top-performing subjects tend to work no more than 4.5 hours per day. Granted for some that may be a hard feat to accomplish but try to find time for an extended break after 4.5 hours at the very least.
- No More Meetings: Lastly, the greatest time suck for productivity is participating in pointless meetings. Nonetheless, we continue to unquestioningly book meetings, attend them and, inevitably, complain about them. Furthermore, the average office worker spends over 31 hours each month in unproductive meetings. So, before scheduling your next meeting, you need to self reflect on the situation. Ask yourself “Can the same goals be accomplished via email, phone, or video call?”
