Highlight your time every night

Everyone improves with a lesson learned from a failure. If we missed out on the data on how we performed we will never be able to change our errors. To miss out on the errors all we need to do is, gather our daily activities. What we did, how much time we did.

And there comes the ‘highlight’ part, we should review our day every day. What we read, how we performed today. What’s to finish, what will be my priority tomorrow, and so on.

Rather use your smartphone to increase your productivity

Perhaps, your smartphone can be a powerful tool. It can be turned from a candy machine to a high-end tool, that you can use for your productivity. For example, it’s a great calculator, a great health tracker, mini notes store, your little kindle, or a great time tracker or even a camera.

Learn to track your time even your distractions

Tracking your times gives you the ability to highlight on things that you are doing, how much you spend time on Studying or Watching Youtube. We need to track our time, for eg: how much we were focused, or how long we were studying, practicing, or learning new skill, or even how much time we have wasted on the Internet infinity pools rather than being productive.

Eat Right

Your body functions like a machine, so it makes sense that the fuel you provide to your machine is directly correlated positively or negatively to your performance. If you habit of feeding your machine poisonous elements, then indeed it will start to malfunction over time. If not it will run healthy forever.

Also, realize that your nutrition plays a significant role in determining your focus as well.

Recharge

Our brain is like a battery. Every time it needs to be recharged, our battery gets sucked out when we work. To perform better we need to recharge our battery.

Remember the Ancient age, we were all hunter-gathers. Our job was to basically collect food and survive. We used to walk, run, jump. We weren’t screen tappers or pencil pushers. To recharge our battery, all we have to eat, take a break, exercise. 

The best way to Recharge is, Enjoying nature or Meditation.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
