The A.M. Time Is Mine

  • Using the Monk Mode Morning Routine, the A.M. time (the time we wake up till noon) is simply spent on doing something deep and meaningful, like writing a book, Yoga, or reading good books.
  • There is no inconsistency in this life hack, and a four to six-hour progress can be made every day in whatever is valuable to us.
  • With the rising ‘flexible work’ routines where most work is done at home using various digital devices, the Monk Mode is picking up great speed.

The Productivity Funnel

The funnel begins with the fundamental task of selection, where you determine which activities to commit to accomplish. Relevant ideas for this level can be found in books like First Things First, Essentialism, How to Do Nothing, One Thing, The Dip, and Year of Yes.

Once committed, these activities must then go through processing, organization, and storage.

 There are two goals for this funnel level:

  1. to avoid forgetting what you’re supposed to do,
  2. to make smart decisions about what to work on next.
