The Science of Productivity

As I’m writing this, I’m drinking my THIRD 16oz cold brew… BOOM —

(it’s coffee by the way, my mother thought it meant alcohol)


.that’s my secret.

But what if you’re not a caffeine addict?

Well, there’s some great facts about productivity that you should know…

First… recognize the choice you have about how you think and control your thought process.

The people who get sh*t done understand that they dictate their perspective on their tasks. A simple language switch will help with this.

Instead of I have to, switch to I get to.

I have to do so much work today.


I get to be productive and own my responsibilities.

It may sound a bit cheesy, but a small shift like that could completely change your day.

Mastering Your Mindset: Productive individuals understand that their brains are both powerful tools and malleable instruments. They have the ability to maintain focus, think probabilistically, and trigger innovation on demand. It's about fostering a creative environment within your mind.

Willpower Isn't Infinite: The notion of relying solely on willpower is outdated. Willpower can be depleted over time, leaving you drained and demotivated. Instead, adopt a more methodical approach. Remember that the hardest step is often the first one—getting started.

The Zeigarnik Effect: Once you begin a task, the Zeigarnik Effect kicks in. This psychological phenomenon compels us to complete tasks we've initiated. Incomplete tasks can lead to discomfort and intrusive thoughts, urging you to wrap things up.

3 Revolutions of Getting Sh*t Done

  1. Agricultural Revolution - Maximizing Land: productivity was often measured by how much land one owned.

  2. Industrial Revolution - The Race Against the Clock: As the world embraced the Industrial Revolution, productivity was associated with optimizing repetitive tasks within a limited time frame. Faster and more efficient execution was the key to success.

  3. Current Revolution - The Power of Intelligent Solutions: Today, it's not just about the sheer quantity of work but also the quality of your solutions. Productivity is defined by your ability to think critically, ask the right questions, and approach problems with creativity and innovation.

    Innovation is the currency of success.

5 Ways to Maximize Productivity

  1. Mindset Shift: Embrace "I Get To"

    • Replace "I have to" with "I get to" to view tasks as choices, not obligations.

      I explained this earlier, but it will help you change your entire outlook on the day ahead.

  2. Zeigarnik Effect: Break Tasks Down

    • Break tasks into smaller steps to leverage the Zeigarnik Effect.

      Just start a task, whether you want to or not… your brain will get pretty pissed at you when you decide not to finish it right away… lol

  3. Smart Habits Over Willpower: Start Small

    • Establish smart habits gradually instead of relying solely on willpower.

      Consistency in small changes builds over time, reducing the burden on willpower and promoting sustained productivity.

  4. Current Revolution Focus: Prioritize Innovation

    • Shift from task completion to delivering quality results.

      Stop worrying so much about just getting work done just to get it done. Take pride in quality.

  5. Balancing Efficiency and Quality Output

    • Merge Industrial Revolution lessons with current demands.

      Balance efficiency with effectiveness by allocating specific time frames for tasks while ensuring high-quality outcomes.

      Use time management tools like the Pomodoro Technique to enhance productivity.
