The Only Productivity Tool You Need
May 11, 2016
Whether you want to lose weight or get a promotion at work, you need to master productivity. You’ll never be able to fit in workouts, healthy meals, and meditation if you’re constantly procrastinating and not making the best use of your time. And if you’re going for that promotion, you’ll never be able to get ahead and learn new skills if you don’t know how to be effective with your time.
Productivity is something every top performer has mastered, and you should, too.
With so many tips on time management and productivity available on the Internet, you might feel overwhelmed by the different approaches experts preach on a daily basis.
Today, I’m going to unravel this whole mystery and share the ONLY tool you need to master productivity and get a huge amount done every day.
Are you ready?
Single-pointed focus: focusing on only one thing at a time.
You might have heard that the key to being productive and getting a lot done is multitasking.
Doing more than one thing sounds effective. Like you’ll get more done because you’re doing two things at a time instead of one, right? Wrong. What happens when you multitask is that your focus and energy are diluted and no task ever gets your full energy.
Often, you don’t finish anything completely because you’re so exhausted from spreading yourself across two (or more) projects. If you do end up finishing multiple tasks at once, it’s likely the work will be low quality – you might even have to redo it.
On the other hand, when you focus on one thing at a time until completion, your work quality will be super high and you’ll feel satisfied at the end of the day because you actually got work done – and gave it your all.
It’s the same when you’re trying to get healthy or lose weight. If you just integrate one tool at a time – like adding in one serving of green vegetables per day – until it’s second nature to you, you’ll see results. If you try to implement every health tip you’ve heard at once, you’ll likely get frustrated, binge on brownies, and give up completely.
See how single-pointed focus applies to every area of your life and is the only productivity tool you need? Experiment with it this week and let me know how it goes in the comments below. I can’t wait to hear from you!
