The Science of Productivity

December 17th, 2012 | Brain



Everyone would appreciate a little more productivity in their lives, and the short video above gives you a few tips to make that possible.  I remember reading about the study habits of world class musicians a while back.  Someone did a pretty extensive study comparing the best violinists in a school to the rest of the students, and like the video states, it was found that the best musicians didn’t study any longer but rather more effectively.  The best students attacked the most challenging musical sequences while other students focused on the easier portions of the songs.  I have a feeling that this may be a common trait among all successful people.

In the world of Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, and Instagram it can be a bit difficult to maintain focus and accomplish goals.  To increase your productivity, focus on these main points from the video above:

  • Get Started!
  • Don’t rely on will power, Stick to a plan
  • Break up large projects into smaller, achievable tasks
  • Make deadlines
  • Take planned study breaks
  • Stop Multitasking!

I have begun making nightly lists for the next day’s tasks, and I’ve found this to greatly increase my productivity.  Maybe it can help you too.
