✅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.




“It’s not always that we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less.” – Nathan W. Morris expert


“Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else.” – Peter Drucker




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! 




Until next week!
