33 Rules to Boost Your Productivity

33 Rules to Boost Your Productivity

Steve Pavlina has posted another great series of articles! I have to say this series is one of my favorites. 33 Rules to Boost Your Productivity (Ariticle one, two, and three) has quite a collection of useful advice to become a more productive individual.
Here are some of my personal favorites:
Article 1

7 – Timeboxing. Give yourself a fixed time period, like 30 minutes, to make a dent in a task. Don’t worry about how far you get. Just put in the time.

I’ve found timeboxing to be incredibly valuable. One technique that I’ve used for the past 6 months I learned from ‘The Power of 48 Minutes‘.

13 – Agendas. Provide clear written agendas to meeting participants in advance. This greatly improves meeting focus and efficiency. You can use it for phone calls too.

21 – Resonance. Visualize your goal as already accomplished. Put yourself into a state of actually being there. Make it real in your mind, and you’ll soon see it in your reality.

Article 2

7 – Software. Take advantage of productivity software to boost your effectiveness. Lifehacker recommends new items every week.

8 – Zone out. Enter the zone of peak creativity, and watch your output soar.

15 – Music. Experiment to discover how music may boost your productivity. Try fast-paced music for email, classical or new age for project work, and total silence for high-concentration creative work.

30 – Inspiration. Read inspiring books and articles, listen to audio programs, and attend seminars to keep absorbing inspiring new ideas (as well as to refresh yourself on the old ones).

Article 3
These are great 😉

1 – Halliburton. Cut corners to save time and money when the outcome is mainly for show anyway. If it looks good, it is good. It’s easier to manufacture excuses than results.

18 – Eye for an eye. Punish those who add tasks to your plate by filling their plates with even more.

24 – Armageddon. Use Overwhelming Force to totally dominate your problem. Treat your molehill like a mountain. Use a bazooka to kill a cockroach. Send a real human being to serve in Congress.
