I just found one of the best productivity hacks yesterday. Kind of random.
Now, this isn’t something extraordinary. Actually, it’s rather simple. And this is good. It means you can easily implement it in your life too.
So here’s how it work.
Just start. How often do you not start a project, task or whatnot because you know you won’t be able to finish it now. For example, you want to write a blog post. You know it’s going to take about three hours to write it. So what do you do? You wait until you have three hours one day. Aaand that day never comes. So the blog post never gets written.
But what if you just started? Now. You’re reading this. It means you probably have a couple of free minutes. Why don’t you close this tab and get started?
Write down a few words of your outline. Maybe you can write a few paragraphs. And when you have another five or ten free minutes tomorrow, you do the same.
In ten times fifteen minutes you will get a lot more done than in days of waiting for that long time block that might never come.
