The Right Technique

Productivity - Right Technique

We often do things the way we were taught, not because it’s the best way to do it. By keeping you mind open to new ideas and a little amount of research, you could be surprised by the vastly superior and more productive techniques that you can discover, that can boost your productivity and efficiency.

I often see people hitting balls endlessly at the golf driving range with the wrong technique. They are taking Massive Action, but that action is not aligned with their long-term goal of becoming a better golfer. If anything, it is making them worse since it is reinforcing the wrong swing.

Every skill has it’s own special requirements, which is where it is virtually impossible to list out the right techniques for specific skills. Additionally, since we all learn in different ways, the right technique for one person may end up being the wrong technique for someone else.

The important thing to keep in mind, is that before you get into the intensive practice and action phase, you spend adequate time experimenting and trying out different techniques, to find the technique that works the best for you.

80:20 Principle

80% of the outputs result from 20% of the inputs. To increase your productivity and effectiveness, you need to focus on the 20% of high-impact activities, and de-focus on the 80% low-impact activities.

Productivity - Focus

Focus

A flow state (or being in the zone) is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. This leads to a tremendous boost in productivity and enjoyment, in anything that you do.

Productivity - Batching

Batching

Batching is where you gather all similar tasks and do them all at once. By completing them this way, you can maximize your focus on one type of task over a period of time, and therefore greatly increase your productivity on that particular job.
