How to Work Like a Genius in 5 Steps (CLASSIC)
Anyone can master this.
#Some geniuses are Albert Einstein-esque.
But most people we think of as geniuses are just super productive and get a lot done. Tons of action makes one look pretty damn smart.
So, basically, they use their average IQ to its fullest extent. Which is a version of genius.

Here’s how you can work like a genius even if you aren’t one.
#1/ Eliminate distractions
Here’s where you set up your environment to work for you.
Ditch the cell phone. Block websites on your computer. Unplug the TV.
Focus is a superpower these days. Most of us have the attention span of a goldfish.
Meditation helps. It also helps with clarity. Focus and clarity work wonders together.
#2/ Chunk your work
I mean this 2 ways.
The Sprint-Rest-Repeat way where you work for 45 minutes and then take a break.
And the This Looks Familiar way where you chunk similar work together. Need to bang out 10 calls? Do it at once. Time to respond to emails? Batch them together.
If you’re a boss, this is easy. You have people you’re specifically meant to delegate to. Use them.
If you’re a regular person, then you could outsource to another country. Or pass something off to your spouse or kids.
We’ve involved the kids in a lot more chores to take things off our plate.
My girlfriend also takes a lot on around the house so I can focus on school and writing.

#4/ ‘6 Tasks’ Rule aka Ivy Lee Method
The idea is you can only focus on a max of 6 tasks each day.
For me everything I do has to contribute to my health, relationships or wealth buckets.
My must do daily tasks? Workout, sleep 7+ hours, publish a content piece, finish at least 30 minutes of schoolwork and eat family dinner.
#5/ Plan your day
Each evening jot down an outline for your following day.
Eventually you build a routine. Once things are a routine, it’s easier to do them than not to.
I wanted to take a day off the other day and then my body just carried me into my routine.
Default settings took over until I could re-engage with my life.
