✅5 High Performance INSIGHTS✅
Don't Compromise On Breaks
Take them. It's how your brain breathe. Working consecutively without breaks is DETRIMENTAL to your productivity.
Automate, Automate, Automate
Why waste time on tasks that could be taken care of by artificial intelligence or software? You could be using that time to make a difference or improve your own learning.
Cultivate Note Taking Habits
Put it all down on paper. It frees up your brain's temporal working memory. Make list and complete them. It gamifies your day and feed your brain some extra endorphins.
Beat Your High Score
Measure your productivity output at the end of every work cycle. That's your high score. Now go beat it. This is how you get good FAST.
Manage Your Time
Really keep track of how long you are spending on each task. Minutes and Hours can slip away easily without you noticing. This is important to prevent boundaries from being blurred when you are working from home.

1 QUESTION FOR YOU
When was the last time you pampered yourself?
Come on man! You can't love others unless you know how to love yourself.
Do you know that rewards bolster motivation and increase productivity?
So go ahead. Don't be ashamed… go for that single person buffet meal. Buy yourself a fancy cup of coffee. Go take a 4 hour massage!
YOU DESERVE IT!
Until next week!
