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. WHY I AM DOING THIS 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. schedule - 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.
