How to be more productive

Aren’t we all wondering how to be more productive?  Don’t we feel accomplishment when we respond to some emails and update our social media? So why do we get to the end of the day and wonder why we feel like we didn’t get enough done?

You know the KISS theory right?  This incredible article is very KISS.

I’ve pulled out a few of my favourite lines from it here:

  • When executives are in flow, they are up to five times more productive
  • What we call multitasking is, in actuality, task switching
  • Each task switch might waste only 1/10th of a second, it can add up to a 40% productivity loss
  • Task switching is exhausting because it uses up oxygenated glucose in the brain

By being more intentional about our relationship with technology, we can cultivate a work environment in which we are not only more productive, but also more fulfilled and actualized versions of ourselves.
