Your worst productivity habit, Turbomind Poweridea #19
What is the worst productivity habit you can run on a daily basis that gives you lots of headaches and stresses you out?
If single tasking and focusing on the most important task is the supreme habit of high performance people, Interruptions are the supreme habit of low productive executives.
What do I mean?
Imagine you just made a commitment to write an important letter and you need about 30 minutes to write it completely. If you focus on this single task it will take you about 30 minutes of laser focus.
Now, how long will it take if you get interrupted every couple of minutes with a phone call, a whatsapp message, a text, a facebook news feed, or |have a minute” question into your office?
It will take forever. The same task will take 2 or 3 hours. As a matter of fact, the same task will become very tiredring and hard.
Interruptions make simple task into horrible long and tedious task.
Make a commitment to work on your most important tasks without any interruptions for blocks of 1.30 hours. Your productivity will explode.
