      How to do more work in 90 minutes than 87% of people do in 9 hours

      Source; Twitter

      Make a music playlist for focus.

      I like organic house music.

      Some other great options:

      • Hans Zimmer
      • Binaural beats
      • Tibetan bowls
      • Flute meditation music
      • Brown/White noise

      These will cut distractions and boost concentration. 

      Prepare.

      Preparing beforehand will prime your brain.

      Want to focus? Get 8 hours of sleep.

      Want to write? Read for 20 minutes.

      Want to work? Plan for 10 minutes.

      Getting into flow will become 10x easier. 

      Prioritize.

      Most people work all day but never know why they barely get stuff done.

      That’s because they’re busy, not productive.

      To prevent that:

      1. Create 1 goal for your work session
      2. Set 3 actionable tasks
      3. Ignore everything until those 3 tasks are finished 

      Work in 90-minute sprints.

      It takes around 20 minutes to get into the flow and 90 minutes for your focus to sharply decline.

      So schedule deep work sessions for 90 minutes, followed by a 15-minute break.

      Repeat for as many cycles as necessary. 

      Batch similar tasks.

      Your brain uses significant energy when switching between different types of tasks.

      Batch together logical tasks:

      • Editing
      • Planning
      • Research

      Batch together creative tasks:

      • Writing
      • Drawing
      • Idea generation

      You’ll think much clearer. 

      Eliminate distractions.

      Distractions are the #1 reason you can’t work

      Loud noises.

      Cluttered work areas.

      Distracting websites/apps.

      Make it a priority to remove these from your environment. 

      Relax.

      After your deep work session, do something fun.

      – Watch Netflix
      – Meditate
      – Enjoy social media (responsibly)
      – Hangout with friends
      – Have sex

      This makes your brain associate positive feelings with the completion of work. 

      How to do more work in 90 minutes than 87% of people do in 9 hours:

      1. Make a focus playlist
      2. Prepare
      3. Prioritize tasks
      4. Work in 90-minute sprints
      5. Batch similar tasks
      6. Eliminate distractions
      7. Relax afterwards
