Productivity Methods


Law of least resistance

Law of resistance states that people tend to do the immediate thing which gives them instant satisfaction even if it comes at the cost of long term loss or disturbed office work space.

To really benefit in long term plans one must contain emotions and devote most of working hours to deep work rather than craving for small wins.

Productivity Methods

Quit social media | Dr. Cal Newport | TEDxTysons
Packing Party.

The Packing Party Approach inspired by Ryan Nicodemus—a film producer who once packed up his entire apartment and only began taking out only what he needed.

In no time, he realized that the stuff he actually used made up of only a few things of his total possessions.

The realization more than validated his decision to downsize and declutter.

Applying this strategy to our social media habit could look like not using social media for 30 days and assess how we feel after this.

Get your shoulders loose with the seated shoulder shrug, like this:

  1. Remain seated on the edge of your bed with your feet on the floor.
  2. Shrug your shoulders up to your ears.
  3. Repeat 10 more times.
Follow your passion is a bad advice.

I finished reading this book two months ago but I bought it in hard copy last week because it is very good book that doesn't run along with your prejudices and strictly presents the reality; of people who ended up making a grand career for themselves which was not based on simple and manipulative advice:-

Follow Your passion and money will follow you

So Good They Can't Ignore You

by Cal Newport

Most important step; ACTION

The final level focuses on the actual execution of whatever it is you’ve figure out you should be doing in the moment. This includes how you plan your day, the rituals you deploy to support your efforts, and the processes you’ve put in place to support more effective collaboration with others
