If You Want To Read Only One Book On Productivity, Read This (Real Wisdom)
You can double your output
Productivity defines your success. You need to do things efficiently to get ahead in life.
There are many ways to be productive and probably the best is to stop procrastinating.
So I decided to read a book on beating procrastination. I came across a book called — Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy.
I finished the book last week and I got some key ideas from the book. Once I applied those key ideas, I started producing more. I was doing more work in the same amount of time.
I would highly recommend reading this book. The ideas are very easy to implement in your life. Here are some of the key ideas:
#Finish the most important work in the morning
If you want to take only one lesson from this book, take this. Decide to finish your most important task in the morning.
#Start the task and don’t stop until you are done.
Schedule every day in advance
One way to increase your productivity is to write down your tasks. Once you have a list, you start working on it without wasting any time.
#Never work without a list.
Break huge projects into small chunks
If a task appears to be big, break it into small parts such that each part can be done within 1 to 2 hours. Once you start completing small parts, you will feel confident and motivated to finish the whole work.
#Set hypothetical deadlines
Think of your work as a game. Set imaginary deadlines and try to beat those imaginary deadlines.
Deadlines put pressure on you and bring the best out of you.
Our mind can only focus on one thing at a time so multitasking reduces your productivity in most cases.
Work on a single task at a time.
law of three
Don’t try to overwhelm yourself by writing too much stuff to do. Instead, practice the law of three.
The law of three signifies that find the 3 most important tasks that account for 90 percent of your output.
Find those tasks and try to devote all of your time to those tasks.
One way to increase your productivity is to upgrade your key skills. If you are more skilled, you can achieve more.
Think about the consequences of your habits
The most efficient people always think about the future. Before you do anything ask this:
Does this habit align with my future self?
Don’t sacrifice your long-term gains for short-term pleasure.
#Be your biggest fan
Even if nobody is supporting you, you have to be your biggest fan. You have to cheer yourself up.
#Don’t let yourself down.
These are some ideas from the book. If you want to know more, check out the book. It is one of the best books I have read.
Thanks for reading.
