Time compression the phenomenon where time goes by quickly when we're immersed in something that we're doing.

The weekly review

It’s dedicated time to think about the past week, reflect on what went well and what didn’t, and plan for the week ahead. 

It’s a chance to get aligned with your goals and ensure that the work you’re doing on a daily basis is helping you reach them

The Weekly Review: A Productivity Ritual to Get More Done


The Evolution Of "Productivity"
  • Back in the Industrial Revolution context, productivity was translated into the amount of production per factory or per worker for a given day.
  • These days the discussion revolves more about personal productivity and it relates to how much work we can get done in the smallest amount of time possible.

The Productivity Equation


  • Make sure to set aside time to talk to your boss, have an honest conversation with him about yourself, the things you've accomplished, and constantly ask for feedback.
  • Keep being proactive. There are a lot of things we end up missing doing because we forget it under all the things we have to manage.
  • Like tasks, mood is something we also have to manage. We tend to get "bored" while working because the work feels insignificant, but nothing is more motivating than making progress.

Things The Most Productive People Do Every Day - Barking Up The Wrong Tree


The 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto principle, states that we need to focus on the few things that get us the most benefit.

For a lot of events, approximately 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. So pick the 20% of your tasks that yield 80% of the results and outsource or simply discontinue the rest.

To Get Better Results, Do Less But Do It Better


Preparation should follow planning

Planning as a first step is good. But preparation is even better.

Planning helps you to know what you will be doing on a day. Preparation gets you ready to actually do the tasks.

The Munger Technique

*Just like compound interest multiples one’s savings, improving one’s mind daily, during the best hour of the day, multiplies one’s mental compounding interest.

This ‘mental’ compounding interest advice comes from investor Charlie Munger, in his book University of Berkshire Hathaway.

Time feels like it's passing differently

2020 made us aware that we experience the passage of time different from reality. The days felt stretched out, and some months seemed to go on forever.

Time has two faces: One is the "objective time" of watches and calendars. The second is "lived time", the time of your subjective experience. This time is felt, lived, and acted.

A theory that can help explain why time seems to move slowly
