    Again starting my productivity thread. I left earlier due to my flatline and relapse some 60-70 days ago. again making this thread to report my productivity levels.
    I welcome you guys to report your productivity levels too if you want to stay organised.
    This way we can stay accountable to each other.

    1) Accountability
    2) motivation
    3) good past experience of posting productivity outcomes
    4) a sense of purpose
    5) most importantly to handle those days when dopamine is low and depression comes which breaks the productivity streak. Work out of discipline.- 8 hours is fine on those days.

    Working just HARD is not enough we need to work smart too. A donkey works hard too but with 0 results and keep working hard for whole life.

    Productivity levels - 12 hours - 100%
    10 hours- 80%
    8 hours - 60%
    6 hours - 50%
    5 hours - 40%
    below 5 hours a day - failure

    Remember that the number of hours is not calculated by just sitting in front of computer and working will little efficiency. these hours are actively working with mentally exhaustive work.

    who should take up productivity challenge -
    1) workers on deadlines.
    2) who need to attain something extraordinary in short amount of time.
    3) students, businessmen, entrepreneurs etc

    point 1--- we are ordinary humans, we can't out of our free will work for 12 or more hours like elon musk, we are not geniuses of world order. that is why we need to use our "human will" to harness that productivity. (as per me "human will" can do everything-I regard "human will" the most and biggest power in this world)

    point 2--- this productivity levels is highly mentally demanding task, please don't feel discouraged if you are not attaining desired levels. I can say I am trying to do this for more than a year now and is just 60-70% successful. make things rolling slowly.

    point 3--- exercise and some hobby activity is also important, do not ignore your body.

    point 4 ---- try to love your work otherwise it will be hard to reach those goals.

    - if I could follow this schedule, I shall post in thread 100% success.

    1st slot - 5-7AM
    2nd slot - 8:30-12PM
    3rd slot - 12:15-2:00 PM
    4th slot - 2:30-6:00
    5th slot - 7:15 - 8:30PM
    then retire for the day- a pint of beer or 30-40ml of some dark smoky whiskey.

    you can adjust your schedule accordingly.

    what I need to post here after 8:30PM -
    1) percentage success.
    2) failure if I worked for less than 5 hours.
    3) post reason of failure.

    honesty is the key here. I shall be very honest and want you guys to stay honest in reporting productivity levels.
    I shall be posting tomorrow evening after 8:30PM about my day productivity.

    The Monk-Mode Guide!

    Life is an ongoing war. The war which consists of many battles like relationships, self-improvement, family, fitness, career and social life. You struggle every day. Sometimes win and sometimes you lose. But these battles are constant and you must always be mentally prepared to fight them.

    What is a Monk Mode?

    Monk mode is a time period of certain days when you live your life almost like a monk. It helps you to:

    • rewire your thinking about ongoing things in life. (It could be good or bad)
    • to rationalize your thought process
    • to introspect yourself
    • to rehab yourself from constant dopamine spike
    • to learn gratitude towards the life and things around you
    • to learn the importance of hardships
    • to test your limits
    • to become mentally strong
    • to clear mental fog
    • to find a way forward in life
    • to embrace peace and solitude
    • to learn to be happy within yourself.
    Keep reading if you are interested in above-mentioned points. I will teach you how to follow monk mode and how to come out of monk mode effectively for the greater good.

    Step: 1 – Introspect your self and your life.

    Ask yourself these questions:

    • is your life going on point as you wanted it to be 2 years back?
    • are you satisfied or at peace with the present situation in your life?
    • do you feel motivated enough to go to work daily, to hit the gym or to perform other activities
    • people who are close to you (you parents, partner, friends, etc) are happy with your behaviour?
    • are you feeling worthy
    • are you having suicidal thoughts?
    • are you out of shape (physically or/and mentally)
    If the majority of answers are in the negative direction, you can give Monk-Mode a try.

    Step: 2 – Write down your problems, weaknesses and flaws

    After introspecting yourself, I want you to write down everything you are facing right now in your life, on a paper. Write down the problems you are facing. Do not be egotistical when it comes to writing down your weaknesses, face them. Write down your flaws. Write down everything. This step is a part of introspection only but writing it down is a form of showing yourself a mirror. This step might make you more depressed or fill you with the feeling of unworthiness, but in the back of your mind keep this though alive “It is the part of the process

    Step: 3 – Isolate yourself

    This is where the first day of the regime starts. I want you to isolate yourself from the world. Try to isolate yourself from:

    • Social media world. Completely. No touch
    • From your friends and partner (if possible)
    • From Parents (tell them you need some time alone, you can try).
    • Take leave from office for maximum days if possible
    • Hit gym when it’s empty
    • Avoid talking to people until it is absolutely required.
    • No newspaper or news.
    • No Music of any kind.
    • Abstain from having sex or similar activity.
    Do not force and fight with your close ones when it comes to isolation. Just tell them you need some time alone and work around how much they allow.

    In this step, I personally advise people to shave their head to minimum hair and stop shaving face. Let that beard grow.

    Step: 4 – Self-improvement

    Now the real work on yourself starts. From Day 1 include these things in your daily routine:

    • Wake up before sunrise. How? I don’t know. But you must.
    • Sit for meditation at least for 30 minutes upon waking up.
    • Go for 5 km run or jog or walk. No cellphone.
    • Eat according to your diet. To calculate if you should be under deficit or surplus, install Fittr app.
    • Read a book. I would suggest – The Meditations, Bhagwad Geeta, The Prince and An autobiography of a Yogi. You can start all these books simultaneously, divide your time accordingly.
    • Clean your house/room daily. Everything should be in order around you.
    • Do your laundry.
    • Learn a new language/musical instrument or some sport.
    • Write an article, could be on any topic, any thought or advice.
    • Hit Gym.
    • Cold Shower.
    • Sleep on the floor.
    • Whenever you have extra time left, solve Sudoku puzzle or meditate again.
    These steps will make you realize your worth. Learning new things will open new sectors in your brain, forcing yourself for things like long hours of meditation and sleeping on the floor will help you to reverse engineer about your own existence. Hitting the gym and following a diet will improve your health and looks. Writing an article daily will improve your thought process.

    Now it also depends on how much you can include these in your daily life. It is not possible for everyone to take leave from office or to quit cellphone use completely. The points I mentioned are extremes. Try to include as much as you can.

    Step: 5 – Breaking the Monk Mode regime

    I personally suggest people follow the monk-mode process for 30 days. You can do it for 10 days. Whatever works for you. During the process, the day you feel like not touching your cellphone anymore, or you feel at peace. Add 3 days more to it and then you can break it slowly. How?

    • Shave your beard or fix it.
    • Call your Mom and Dad. Talk to them.
    • Install social media apps as per your ‘must’ requirement. You can add more slowly each day.
    • Keep continuing with your new language lessons, gym, diet. You will be busy enough to not to give heed to any time or dopamine wasting activities.
    • Start meeting friends and other people slowly. Isolation for a longer period is dangerous. You are a social animal. Act like one.

    That’s it. You will be stronger, smarter and sharper after following the Monk-Mode process.

    this I found on internet. I am gonna follow this.
    but I would not stop talking to family and music.
    this is day-0 for monk mode.
    any erection would lead to lapse of monk mode. looking for a 1 year of monk mode.

    day - 5

    again only 10 hours of work done. efficiency was really good.
    today in evening there was mood swing, I felt sad without any reason. I was feeling self pity that how hard I am working and how much sacrifice I needed to make. some people get it so easy in life. that those were negative emotions. so now I know that I am not completely cured of porn addiction and flatline could still hit me any time.
    but despite all of this I am gonna make it.
    I tried very hard today to focus after 10 hours but failed so agreed with my brain and stopped.

    tomorrow is a new day. again I need to push to limits. I am short of my targets. need to work extra hours for nearly whole of next week. I shall keep updating this thread about how much I am giving to work. there is so much to do, sometimes time is up for day and sometimes mind revolt.

    I am unmarried and have no girlfriend. and now even porn and masturbation is not in life. also I have limited number of friends who are not here where I live, so I have time only for my work. I work for at least 10 hours daily and 11-12 hours on average, I take 2 hours every day for some kind of physical exercise, I eat and sleep. so you can say it is easier for me to work long hours as this is only thing I have to do.
