Unusual Ways To Be More Productive

Work faster and beat perfectionism! Crazy awesome right?

Hey Beautiful, how are you today? 

I learned this new trick recently but I can't remember where I heard it from. If you can place where I heard this, please let me know in the comments.  I think it was a podcast....

The tip is this, when you're working on a project don't give yourself a set amount of time to get it done but instead set an amount of time to get it finished. It's a matter of thinking about this differently. Did you catch the difference?

We fill the time we're allotted so whether you give yourself one hour or two hours you'll fill that time. However, this time you're going to aim to finish instead of just working on it.

This is a way to put the 80/20 rule into action.

And because I didn't have time to meander about and fiddle with little things, this hard deadline allows me to get it finished fast. I usually tell you to use a timer but this time I used a television show to track. Two Big Bang Theories take me an hour so I know I can watch two episodes back to back. I can look up and since I've seen the show before I know where about I am in my timeframe. This tip simply wouldn't be as effective with an actual kitchen timer.

Doing a task in this manner cuts you off from perfectionism.  Giving you a way to set it and get it done. Many of us perfectionism freaks are just as picky about wasting time. So this trick is almost a loophole around perfectionism. A trap we can all stand to scoot around.

I know in the title I said, "Unusual Ways" but it's just this one tip.

The "Ways" are simply how you choose to use it. You can try watching tv shows like I did or you could use a wandering list if your tasks spans a few days.

Either way, I'd love to hear from you. What show will you be watching? What project do you think you'll use this with? My admin assistant is thinking school homework as she's going back to get her degree in writing. Let me know how it goes in the comments!

And as always, You're AMAZING! Have a fantastic week.
