#atozchallenge P is for Productivity [Bonus Video]

This is a bonus post for today. Many of the posts in this series deal around the large topic of productivity, so I haven’t pinpointed the subject into one post. But I wanted to share this video below.

Productivity Video

In this short video, Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown (Made in collaboration with Sparring Mind, the behavioural psychology blog) share some interesting tidbits about productivity from the world of science.

The video suggests some interesting steps – most of which you will hear writers always suggesting when asked what makes a successful writer, and most of which you will find though-out this blog series.

  1. Get started
  2. Deliberate Practice – they rely on habit and disciplined scheduling.
  3. 90 minute work regime with a 15 minute break (see P for Pomodoro, which also discusses the 90 minute work schedule also).
  4. Accountability chart to document progress – similar to the Kaban charts discussed in previous post.
  5. Chunk out tasks.
  6. Stop multi-tasking.
