How to Get More Work Done

Bookmark and Share

The more you stress yourself at X, the more capacity you build for X. (Researchers Tony Schwartz, Jim Loehr)

For instance:

  • You build more muscles by lifting heavier weights.
  • You build more endurance by running farther.

Similarly, you build more capacity to perform by working harder.

  1. Troy Polamalu goes full out on every pass play.
  2. Therefore, he builds more capacity to perform than someone who doesn't play full out.

Imagine your next 5 minutes of work as a football play. The more you push yourself in those next 5 minutes to perform, the more capacity you build to get more things done in future 5 minutes plays.

That is, for example, instead of finishing 1 task in five minutes, you see yourself finishing:

  1. 1.5 tasks a five minutes set
  2. 1.8 tasks in the next set
  3. 2.1 tasks in the next set
  4. Etc, etc, etc

SHABAMA YOU WIN YOU WIN

Working Harder

Here's one way to do it:

  1. Shibobo sets a timer for 5 minutes.
  2. Shibobo goes full out trying to complete as many things as he can.
  3. Shibobo takes a quick break to regain full energy for the next 5 minutes.

Every set helps him get more things done in successive sets.
