The Productivity Equation

There are 3 main elements that help us be productive:

  • Time 
  • Energy
  • Direction

And this course, there showed techniques and activities to keep these elements in shape or otherwise, all the effort we take to ge...

TIME

Without much time, we wouldn't be able to do many of our activities.

In these case, time-management techniques such as time blocking or task prioritization can increase the number of hours we have to spend on certain things.

Multiply and divide your time

Multiplying your time: Doing something today that will give you more time tomorrow.

The Focus Funnel: A way to know how to approach a task.

  • Whether it can be eliminated, delegated, done today, or leave it for later.

Divide you...

ENERGY

We can have all the time in the world, but if we don't have the energy to do the work, we won't get anything done.

Activities that can improve our health and increase our energy are exercise, nutrition, and sleep.

TRAIN: 

  • Exercise: It increases our cortisol levels and body temperature which means we will be more alert and focused.
  • Nutrition: Eat healthily and reduce the consumption of junk food.

RECOVER

  • Sleep

DIRECTION

We can have all the time and energy to do stuff, but if we don't have a clear goal or objective, all that effort will end up being unproductive work. 

For this section, the key is to reduce distraction and increase traction to get closer to your goals.

Productive Focus

Traction: Getting closer to your goals.

Distration: Getting further from them.

To maximize your traction and minimize distraction we can use the pomodoro technique, distraction-free workspace, or deep work-mode.
