Double Your Productivity: 7 Secrets

Double Your Productivity: 7 Secrets
Are you on the path to ultimate life success?

Why leave it to chance? 

Do you think it’s possible to double your productivity as early as this month? 

If you think this sounds impossible, just think about this: As you’re reading this, people who are no smarter or more hardworking than you are making millions of dollars a year, or even a month! 

This means that the only possibility is that they know a few secrets about productivity which are enabling them to do a lot more in a lot less time. 

Let’s look at seven secrets which you can start using today: 

1. Smart Outsourcing 


Most of the time-wasting activities in your life or your work are probably things that someone else could handle on your behalf. 

These are all things that you need to consider outsourcing to someone else. 

Even if you have to pay the person, consider the cost of the time that you would spend doing that task yourself. 

If something is taking you 5 hours to do, and that’s 5 hours you could spend making $200, you’d be better off paying someone $50 to do it so you could focus on tasks which bring in more income. 

2. Selective Ignorance 


How much of your time do you waste consuming information that you’ll never use? 

For example, surfing the web, reading and responding to emails, reading the news, etc. are all activities which can easily become time-wasting information addictions. 

That’s not to mention that much of the information you’re exposed to is trying to take MORE of your time (or your money) or be very negative. 

Cultivate the art of selective ignorance and see just how much more time and concentration you’ll save. 

3. Batch Processing


Set aside time blocks during which you can complete all of your tasks in batches. 

For instance, read and respond to emails between 2pm and 4pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and spend the last 20 minutes of the day organising for the next day. 

Instead of multitasking, focus on one job at a time until you complete it. 

This is effective - a recent university study revealed that people being interrupted by phone calls and email scored lower than people stoned… 

Avoid this mind drain by creating time blocks for completing tasks in batches and eliminating the distractions from your life. 

4. Prioritising Your Daily Activities 


Every time that you start out your day, it’s crucial that you have your plan for it written on paper first. 

Write your daily tasks in order of priority (use the above batching process) and according to your larger long-term goals. 

This will help you keep the first things first and avoid getting bogged down in what Steven Covey calls “the thick of thin things.” 

For best results, make your priority list at the end of each day, so you’ll be fully ready before the next day even begins. 

5. Develop a Sense of Urgency 


A strong internal sense of urgency compels one person to finish a task in less than half the time that it would take someone who had no sense of urgency. 

Most people, by nature, allow a task to swell in complexity and size according to the time that they have to complete it, or they put it off and scramble to finish everything at the last minute. 

A strong sense of personal urgency will compel you to start things as soon as possible and complete them long before your deadlines. 

6. Start the Day Off Right 


How you start off the day sets the pace for the rest of the day. If you start out checking emails, organising things on your desk and taking five trips to the bathroom, you lose more and more momentum with each task that isn’t directed towards completing your “meaty” task of the day. 

Better to hit the ground running with tasks that require a lot of energy and focus. 

This will also ensure that your later tasks are easier, less dreadful, and therefore less tempting to put off until the next day. 

7. Recreational Time 


Trying to go on and on taking no time off to rest your mind and your body is a certain way to stunt your ability to concentrate and to reduce your productivity. 

Take 15-20 minutes a day for meditation to clear your mind and make sure you set one day a week aside for recreational activities. 

TIP: Go through each of these seven steps, implementing one a day for the next week.

Overcoming Physical Limitations with Mental Beliefs

Overcoming Physical Limitations with Mental Beliefs
The mind is a powerful tool, and you can use it to overcome many things, including physical limitations according to some.

According to one Buddhist philosophy, the mind precedes all things, led by the mind and created by the mind. 

There is much written about healing mental and emotional issues with the mind, but what about healing and overcoming physical limitations? 

Is it possible to heal the body just by focusing the mind? 

It may just be. 

There are many ways you can use the power of your mind to help heal your body. 

You can use visualisations, guided imagery, hypnotherapy, affirmations and even laughter, believe it or not. 

The subconscious mind, which you can access through practices such as meditation and hypnosis, does not know the difference between reality and imagination.

So theoretically, you could program in just about anything. 

With enough repetition and persistence, you could technically heal yourself from any ailment. 

The biggest thing stopping most of us is our beliefs. We have a hard time believing that this is possible. 

Our belief system is a house of many colours. We build it up with beliefs that have accumulated over a lifetime. 

We store every emotion, every feeling and every experience we have ever had in our brilliant subconscious mind, and some even say, in our bodies. 

If we can’t clear out the emotional debris, the layers continue to build, creating sickness. 

The question remains as to if it is possible to overcome physical limitations using the power of your beliefs. 

There is a connection between the mind and the body, but is it strong enough to heal us? 

Scientifically, your brain has an amazing capacity to make you feel better because it can release powerful chemicals called endorphins, which are your brain’s feel-good chemicals. 

Laugh Your Way to Good Health


We’ve all heard the quote that laughter is the best medicine, but what does it mean? 

There has been a lot of research done on laughter and its ability to heal and restore the body and the truth of the matter is that laughter has many positive benefits. 

Laughter is nature’s own pain reliever, and it may, in fact, be much more effective than any drug you could ever purchase. 

Laughter can be a great stress-reliever and a pain reliever, and it is not just for fun because laughter can even enhance creativity and increase innovation. 

Laughter releases those powerful endorphins, and they not only make you happier, they can also heal your body. 

Norman Cousins, who wrote a book called “The Anatomy of an Illness,” developed a condition called Ankylosing Spondylitis. 

The doctors estimated that Norman’s chance of survival was approximately 1 in 500, so not very good. 

The story has it that Norman laughed his way back to health, which is both amazing and fascinating. 

Norman took massive doses of vitamin C and dismissed himself from the hospital. 

He then got an old-fashioned movie projector and a good supply of funny films. 

The very first night he began watching the films, he could reduce his pain significantly and found he could sleep for several hours completely pain-free. 

He continued this work for several weeks until finally he overcame his affliction. 

This is an incredible demonstration of the power of laughter, and it should be an inspiration to us all. 

Whether this is the placebo effect, it does not really matter because it worked. 

Norman lived another 26 years until he died at 78 from heart failure. 

It's Not Just Laughter Either


Meditation works similarly in activating a part of the brain in charge of the autonomic nervous system, which controls the body’s functions, such as blood pressure and digestion. 

Stress impacts and even compromises these same types of functions, so taking time to modulate these functions can naturally ward off stress-related conditions, such as heart disease, digestive problems and things like infertility. 

Practices like visualisation and even hypnotherapy work in much the same manner, helping one tap into the alpha brainwave frequency, which can help your body heal. 

You could literally visualise your way to good health by taking time every day to picture yourself enjoying good health.

You could take it a step farther and visualise healthy, pink lungs and healthy tissue. You could also visualise tiny little creatures eating away at your disease, helping your body’s immune system heal. 

The brain is a highly efficient system that connects to every single cell in your body. 

When you visualise or even laugh, your brain releases powerful healing endorphins, and there is no limit to the magic it can create. 

The best way to help yourself heal is to hold positive thoughts in your mind. 

Whether you do this with laughter or with visualisations or even with self-hypnosis does not really matter. 

What matters is that you believe with every fibre of your being that you can help your body heal. 

When you believe that, you will laugh your way to optimal health and wellness! 

Slightly unrelated but you can harness the amazing power of numerology readings to unlock unfound energy and success in your life.
