Make a Brain Dump Plan

When you’re in concentration mode, you need a way to quickly record and store any passing thoughts that are important but unrelated to your current project.

Whether you keep a bullet journal by your side, utilize your phone’s voice memo recorder, or use an all-encompassing app like Evernote, having a brain dump system frees your mind to focus on the task at hand.

Track Your Time Relentlessly

Consistent time tracking keeps you honest about your own productivity and reveals opportunities for improvement. 

If you discover that you’re spending too much time on projects that don’t matter to you, or too little time on those that do, you can make deliberate adjustments.

Try Single-Tasking

Try Single-Tasking

Resist the pressure to multi-task, which will leave you feeling scattered and with your powers of concentration spread thin. 

Single-tasking – applying all your brainpower to a specific task for a short burst ­– is more effective. Close all the tabs on your browser, ignore your inbox and get to work.

Use the Pomodoro Technique

This productivity technique combines single-tasking with a built-in reward system. 

Set an alarm for 25 minutes and work on a specific task without stopping. When the timer rings, reward yourself with a 5-minute break, then restart the cycle. After repeating the cycle a few times, give yourself a satisfying 30-minute break.

Always Show Up Prepared

Compile everything you’ll need to complete your task before you start working.

Start Each Day With a Win

There’s nothing more satisfying than crossing an item off your to-do list early in the day. 

Start each day by accomplishing an easy but necessary task, like finishing a reading assignment or returning a phone call.

Or, Start Each Day With a Toad

Or, Start Each Day With a Toad

On the other hand, the best time to knock off an unpleasant task is first thing in the morning. 

In the words of 18th-century French writer Nicolas Chamfort, "Swallow a toad in the morning if you want to encounter nothing more disgusting the rest of the day." The best “toad” is anything you’ve been avoiding, from filling out a lengthy application form to sending that stressful email.

Create Actionable Goals

When you approach big, complicated tasks without breaking them into bite-sized pieces, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed.

Spend 15-minute writing down every single individual task that needs to be completed for the project to be finished, no matter how small. You’ll be able to approach each of these small, achievable tasks with increased focus.

Prioritize, Then Prioritize Again

Prioritize, Then Prioritize Again

A to-do list is always a work in progress. Every time you add a new item to the list, reevaluate your overall priorities. 

Assess each pending task by the deadline, importance, and how long you expect it to take. Set visual reminders of your priorities by color-coding your calendar or writing your daily to-do list in order of importance.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
