5 Tips To Improve Productivity

[Music] Oh Steve Jobs autobiography hello everybody so today we are going to talk about 5 tips to increasing your productivity tip number one leverage the power of habits to build productive routines I asked you guys for book recommendations on Twitter and one of the books I got was the power of habit now I actually started listening to the audiobook of it and I thought it was really interesting because it helped me understand how I became more productive in the past year and now that I can pinpoint that it was because I was building a habit out of the things I wanted to be productive on that I was able to make a routine and start cranking out code videos work stuff you name it now essentially what you want to do is for the next 21 days do something every day this could be coding flossing or whatever you want that you think is productive and after 21 days it will be so hard for you to stop that will become second nature to you tip number two start multitasking the mundane stuff for things that doesn’t require much concentration to do do something else that’s more productive while you do that it would save you surprisingly a lot of time for example when I clean my room or do something super boring that I usually do not like at all I would just you know whip out an audio book and just start listening to it and that way I can actually learn stuff while I do those mundane tasks another example would be when I brush my teeth I would read emails or I would check my social media accounts and then little by little I’m actually saving a lot of time in the long run tip number three keep yourself busy and accountable with deadlines and stakeholders now one of the things I like to do is actually to fill out my calendar with lots of focus blocks and deadlines that way I barely have time to procrastinate the deadlines I set for myself or even better that I promised to other people will keep me accountable for actually completing the projects that way I can’t procrastinate because I just have a lot to finish and a lot of people are dependent on me to finish them tip number four when taking a break don’t think about work just have fun this is important because I see a lot of people half-ass their productive time but they also have has their fun time for example I see a lot of people studying while watching TV shows that’s terrible because you end up not enjoying the show nor learning the things are trying to learn so when I give myself a break I make sure I don’t think about anything else I love TV shows so I turn off my phone and immerse myself and surprisingly you’ll actually learn a lot more by doing that like for example I love to watch kpop videos and actually learn a lot of cinematography by dissecting these videos and just focusing on it but if I was coding while watching these kpop videos I’d never appreciate them as much tip number five exercise exercise exercise now I’m a big fan of weightlifting so I might be biased here but I truly believe that exercising will make you sharper exercising helps you relieve stress because it releases endorphins which are feel-good hormones that way it allows you to refresh your mind and be a lot more productive throughout the day it doesn’t even need to be super intense as long as you get your heart rate up and work on moving your body more you’ll feel the benefits right away exercise is a powerful habit and can be a good primer to you know teaching you to how to build these productive habits so I highly recommend going to the gym or exercising regularly so in conclusion the most important point I want to get across is that if you really want to be good at something or you want to change an aspect of your life then make it a habit now you might say oh yeah it’s not as easy as it sounds though and you’re absolutely right you know building habits extremely hard and I find it hard myself but if you really care about the thing you want to achieve then you will put the effort into it and that’s why I want to keep myself accountable for what I say and I want you guys to join me so basically choose something that you always wanted to do or something that you want to get good at and together we’ll make it a new habit so for me this is running I hate running every aspect of it I’m also extremely bad at it but that’s also why I want to work on it I want to have better cardio and since I hate running the most I want to confront it and if I can make running a habit then it gives me the confidence that in the future I can make anything a habit I also want to thank audible
