Idon’t know about you, but I find it all too easy to get pulled out of the tunnel of productivity when something exciting pops up elsewhere. An even greater challenge arises when unfinished tasks start piling up to the ceiling, it seems. Once you’ve lost track, the self-imposed pressure can soar even higher.
I’ve tried many things and discarded many: what works for others may not work for me
There are many tools, methods, and recommendations for increasing productivity, but even more diverse individuals. Each of us operates differently. Those who discover what supports and hinders them, under what circumstances they are productive, and when they start procrastinating, have already taken the most crucial step toward achieving their goals.
Do Your Own Thing
It’s becoming increasingly challenging to resist the countless distractions. For example, the latest app, Clubhouse, is one of them, where you can completely lose yourself – what a huge procrastination trap! To withstand the many temptations, I tried to outsmart myself and opened a room. The goal wasn’t the conversation but to work in silence, focused, productive, and without distraction to reap better results in the end. It worked. Just once.
By now, there are many rooms on Clubhouse that follow the desire for silence and productivity rather than engaging in diverse discussions. An interesting development. I’m back to following my proven strategy – it works wonders. Always. As long as Ludovico Einaudi plays, my flow runs like the salivation of Pavlov’s dog. Conditioned response, so to speak 😉
How It Can Succeed
I don’t want an app that pesters me with push notifications. I work with my Inspired Planning Guide. It’s always in my line of sight and visualizes whether and how committed I am to pursuing my goal. Moreover, it addresses the most important questions first.
At the moment, only the German version is available for download >> Inspired Planning Guide 2021
Please write to me, and I will be happy to send you the English version. ber. But please don’t forget to schedule enough rest and distraction phases!
I wish you much joy, success, and a healthy dose of ease!
