Productivity Tips to Keep Motivated in the Age of Distraction


5 min remaining

I’ve been thinking about writing something. But, it’s not easy to get into the flow of writing. These days, this is difficult.

A hack or software update won’t make you happy at work or seduce you in your life. You need to find ways to shift your brain from distraction to focus and to achieve success.

These are ten great antics to consider. 

  1. Intention Setting
  2. It’s an issue
  3. Noticing
  4. Wrestling the Resistance
  5. Stacking your Triggers
  6. Creating Limits
  7. Napping
  8. Walking
  9. Meditation
  10. Doing less

1. Setting intentions

This sounds so simple but it is often overlooked. If your goals are unclear or your mission isn’t clear, it will be hard to reach them.

Setting an intention each morning will help you stay focused on your most important tasks. You can also set an intention to be more compassionate and to keep your priorities straight. This will allow you to stay the same way throughout the day.

This may seem all too dreamy at the moment, but it is possible to make your work something you love.

2. It’s a nightmare

Many people are familiar with streaking, which is the act of running naked on the streets. However, this trick is not as common as you might think.

This is best illustrated by the Seinfeld Strategy. If you feel adventurous, it could be running naked down the street. For comedians, it could mean writing jokes every single day.

Add an X to your calendar for each day that you achieve your goal. Within a few weeks, you’ll be able to see the power and simplicity of small gains.

3. Noticing

This is the easiest. Depending on your mood, you may choose to concentrate on one or both of the projects.

I am a mixture of indulgent and hardworking. Knowing when to stop working can help you get the best performance from your work.

4. Fight for the Resistance

Fear, rejection, and creativity can be turned into creativity. Unless you’re a rare breed without inner voices, the key to workplace failure is silence.

By bringing together your inner circle, you can unlock your potential and create a deep work ethic.

5. Stack your triggers

Triggers are often negatively used today. You can use this positive lens to connect triggers for big results. 

For example, you can leave your running shoes at home. The gentle reminder you get from your inner jogger says “Hello there!” Let’s take a spin.

Dickens placed nine items in silence on his desk facing the window. The nine objects included a vase with fresh flowers, a leaf made of gilt, and a rabbit perched on the leaf. A bronze statuette showing a man holding a flock of puppies was also placed in silence.

6. Creation of constraints

This is where ambition meets obligation. It is interesting to see that accountability can be internal (I want this project completed by the week’s close) or external (the deadline for the client is Monday morning).

You need to be aware of the type of constraints that motivate you to act. It is often a combination of external and internal pressures that leads to meaningful progress for many.

7. Napping

I get what you mean. Napping is a great time management tip that restores energy.

8. Walking

Even if you don’t like to nap, there are many creative benefits to walking. Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher who never believed that walking could lead to new thought.

It is possible to let go of your inner world and put one foot in front of the other, allowing the world around you to open up. 

9. Meditation

Meditation is your attentional equivalent of going to the gym. Meditation is the best way to improve your concentration.

This is something you already know if you have a meditation program. Get one. You will be able to see things differently.      

10. Doing less

Stop doing other things to get started. Whether you are working from home or at work, getting rid of unnecessary fluff will help you stay focused and motivated.

It is possible to narrow your perspective by practicing essentialism. This means saying no more and focusing only on what is most important. 

Finding inspiration after interruptions

Setting intentions is a key part of our lives. These methods can’t be used in isolation. However, it doesn’t need to be a tedious task. It is possible to have more fun working with others in a world that is constantly clamoring to be heard.
