Make Time

by Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky

Make time for the things that matter

HIGHLIGHT:

  • Find one specific task that you must accomplish that day & try to complete that one task 
  • This specific task is called the highlight of the day
  • This doesn't mean to do just one task on a specific day but the highlight is the task that you must do that day without any compromise

Laser:
  • Have a laser focus during the highlighted task and avoid multitasking during that slot of time
  • Have a specific time frame blocked for the highlight of the day 
  • Personally, I prefer the first 3 hours of the day for my highlight, you can have any other slot as well

Energise:
  • Take a break in intervals to energise yourself 
  • Break your day into 2 or 3 slots and have tasks of alternate intensity assigned in these slots 
  • Appoint the highlighted task for the slot that you consider yourself most productive and do the rest of the tasks in the other slots

Reflect:
  • We all generally have a morning routine but very few have a winding-up routine 
  • This is a good time to develop one 
  • In this slot of time, you should stay away from any sort of screen and reflect on your entire day so that you can evaluate your efficiency and be more cautious about your time the next day
