Touching The Face: An Instant Self-Soother

The body has many nerve endings that's useful for self-soothing like with our fingertips that can delicately and precisely feel things.

However, the need to touch our face comes with the reason of economic efficiency. We are able to get the quickest relief with the nerves that need stimulating through the face because the nerves there are extremely sensitive and close to the brain thus making the signals arrive quickly and robustly.

We favor the face due to its ample amount of nerves. It rewards us consistently and quickly.

Stashed ideas

3 IDEAS

Most employees working overtime remotely proved that their job can be done while sitting at home, without compromising on quality or any deliverables.

Now, the pandemic has(seemingly) subsided, and vaccination efforts are ongoing, companies are recalling people to their physical offices, full time. They now face an unheard of reality: Employee's needs, working styles and preferences have undergone drastic changes over the past year.

Productivity systems often focus on how to complete your tasks. However, it is just as important to understand why we battle to do the work.

Procrastination triggers are emotional, making it harder to analyse them objectively. Learning about the most common triggers can help to overcome them.

Procrastination is fundamentally an emotional reaction to what you have to do. The more aversive a task is to you, the more you’ll resist it, and the more likely you are to procrastinate.

Aversive tasks tend to: be boring, frustrating, difficult, lack intrinsic rewards, be ambiguous and unstructured.

The Monk Mode Morning

Several accomplished people have adopted the Monk Mode Morning Routine: Not doing anything from the time of waking till noon, just focusing on deep, meaningful work on something valuable.

This means:

  1. No meetings or calls.
  2. No texts, emails or Slack.
  3. No internet(social media or news reading).
  4. No TV.
