Previously we talked about mindfulness and its effect on productivity. Now we encourage you to quantify such productivity: enter time-tracking gadgets such as Time Flip. With an easy switch, measure how long you take on each task, how long you spend browsing online, and how long your breaks are. With weekly charts a pattern emerges showing your most productive hours, as well as areas you need to focus on to improve productivity.
Increasing productivity is a marathon, not a sprint. But with practice and effort, it can be done, one small tweak at a time. A big misconception is that multitasking saves time – but in fact the opposite is true. Multitasking leads to more mistakes and less creativity.
Monotasking requires discipline – setting yourself short time blocks for tasks, removing distraction via secondary screens and devices, and if you find yourself restless, taking a break.
