What Slows Your Productivity

  1. John's doing Task A.
  2. He's also thinking about stuff -- like "what we have to do with Task A in the future".
  3. He tries to juggle the two: doing Task A, while simulatenously thinking of future Task A todos.

He productivity sucks as a result.

BOO.

Thinking Slows You Down

You're multi-tasking when you're thinking.

As mentioned in a recent topic:

  1. You're driving while talking on the phone.
  2. You suck at doing both.
  3. Your productivity in both = exponentially suckier.

When you're thinking, you're alternating between doing and thinking -- destroying your momentum to DO.

  1. "I'm thinking about X."
  2. "I'm doing X."
  3. "I'm thinking about X."
  4. "I'm doing X."
  5. "I'm thinking about X."

Destroying your momentum every time because you revert to "thinking", your productivity to soar like mofro-on-stero plummets.

Try this instead.

Just focus on the task in front of you.

No thinking.

Let the freakishfatastic side of your brain -- your subconscious -- guide you to DO.

It's how top athletes get in the zone, focusing fiercely on the task in front of them.

Just focus on the task in front of you.

You'll work much faster.

Don't think. Do.
