Drains and Incompletions
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
Many people feel unable to find time in the day to do their most important work. Research reveals that on average, in an 8-hour day, employees are only productive for 3 hours.
Look at what is left on your drains and incompletions list. Consider if they are all items you do have control over.
Determine what you can control and what you cannot. It is easy to feel overwhelmed, to worry and try to solve what you cannot control.
Now, cross off all of the items you have no control over. Commit to focus your energy on the things you can control.
Addressing drains and incompletions can feel overwhelming at first, especially if you already feel tired.
Take action to see results. A short-term investment in completing this task will give you a long-term reward that will dramatically improve your workflow and energy.
If you are spending your time, energy, and attention on tasks that don't support your overall goal or priorities, it's time to re-evaluate.
You can use the Pomodoro Technique get into the state of flow: work for 25 minutes on a single task and then take a short break of 5 minutes. If you get in the habit of performing Deep Work in the morning, even for just half an hour, your work will rapidly compound over time. Focus on performing Deep Work, meaning you get to work free of distraction for a long time.
