How I’m productive with no motivation

Today, I want to bring you all along on awork day in “peoples lives”. Ill be sharing some tips, subterfuges and mythought process. Now, while I is a well-known fact that doing YouTube isn’tsomething that most people can relate to, I’ve certainly done the 9-5s, the officejobs, institution, university, and I’d like to think that this video can provide value forpeople in different situations. So, it’s currently 7.30, and Im agitated to get this day started! I merely need to make this little guy outsidefirst or else he’ll confuse my sip for the loo.While Fred is searching for the excellent spotto commemorate his domain, Id like to present to you what I have planned for the day. I use the app Things 3 to keep track of myto-dos, or as I like to call them, targets. Youll notice throughout the day that Imquite the app maniac. Not because theyre all required, but mostlybecause I think theyre fun to use! And if I can disperse some pleasure on somethingthat is otherwise kind of plain and dull, Ill do that. Main targets. These are the most important things that needto get done, and I keep it short, 1-3 things: Film this videoWork on an upcoming video Finish writing for a project that I’m workingon Small targets.These are also things that need to get done, but theyre not as important or urgent as the main targets: WorkoutEmails Move out invoicesWork on a pitch In-betweens. I used to call these free time, butI decided I didnt like that wording, because it assumed that anything that didnt fallunder the category free time was captive time. Anyway, the in-betweens are things I do daily, pretty much by default. Some are just maintenance, some are entertainment. I dont given these things into Things 3, and I dont plan on filming them, but I figured Id tell you about them to let youknow that there are instants when I pause, and theyre important: SkincareShower CookFeed, frisk, clasp, develop, take out Fred JournalRead DrawSocial media Clean We are back, and Id like to share tip numberone, which is dressing up.I work from home, so technically I could justwake up and walk straight-shooting to my table in my PJs and muddled mane. But that doesnt make me feel good. It makes me feel lazy. I prefer to change into a cozy dress. Tip number two is formulation, which is justanother word for reducing friction, because friction debris vigor and demotivates us. Studies have shown that most people are mostproductive in the morning, and I dont want to spend that pinnacle productivity age doingthings that couldve been done the darknes before, such as putting away dishes, emptyingmy storage placard, setting up my camera or looking for my workout clothes.Basically, anything I can do the nighttime beforeto set myself up for a friction-less morning, Ill do. For that main reasons, I opt doing somework on my computer for 30 instants before realise breakfast. It gets the ball rolling. Breakfast, check! And now I’m just going to continue where Ileft off, simply this time, Ill be using the pomodoro procedure, which is my thirdtip. So, with pomodoro, you basically succeed or studyin interludes of 25 instants with 5 instant disintegrates, and that is supposed to help you stay focused.You can have longer times but 25 minutesis the standard. You dont need an app or anything for it, you can time defined a timer on your telephone .. Nonetheless, I like to use the app Forest becauseI like starting things a bit more fun whenever I can. In short-lived, the room it directs is that for every2 5 minutes that I accomplish, I ripen a tree. If at any time I decide to leave the app anddo interesting thing on my phone, the tree is going to die, unless I immediately go back to theapp. And Im undoubtedly not about to kill offan entire tree simply to check instagram, so it wields! So, my hope right now is to continue workingon the upcoming video, and Id like to briefly share with you what that process looks like.So firstly, today we are sponsored by LogiTech, and full disclosure, they transmit me this keyboard case which is their Combo Touch a while backto try out, and its now is connected to my iPad at all times. So, when Im planning out a video, I preferusing my iPad Pro as to report to my Macbook. And the above reasons for that is that, with theCombo Touch affixed, Im able to easily switch between different modes of working, such as reading, typing, sketching and contemplating. So, when Im just starting to brainstormfor a video, I typically go over some of my magazine entryways, which I’m still using a physicalnotebook for. I go over my record greenbacks and other random noteswhich are typically in Notion. And then, sometimes, I like to illustratemy opinions, either in a physical diary, or in any app that allows me to doodle, suchas the Greenback app. Depending on special topics and type of video, Ill do quite a bit of reading as well; articles, experiment, diaries, much of which Iwill have saved onto Instapaper which is where I accumulate essays that I want to be able togo back to.Ill sometimes also chat with friends andwith you all on Instagram to get different perspectives on things. As cohesive designs are starting to formin my recollection, I set them into a google docs, which is where Im currently writing outmy memoes and dialogues for these videos. If youd like a more in-depth video on thisprocess, please let me know in the comments. As a inventive, the versatility of the ComboTouch has elevated my workflow. Not to mention it also remains my iPad protected, it has a nice woven fabric, its back lit so I can use it when it gets dark, theresa spot for your apple pencil. I dont have an apple pencil, I have a free-beeversion, but even that fits. If you want to check out or purchase the ComboTouch for Ipad, you can click the link in my description carton. Alright, time to plant some trees. We are 5 trees deep and I’m about to get aworkout in, which is the fourth tip-off that I have.Moving your figure is beneficial to pretty muchevery aspect of life as Im sure most of you know; even a 10 time step is betterthan nothing at all. Now, Im not someone who gets super excitedto work out. But what improves me is either working out withsomeone in real world, or, when thats not an option, like today, Ill follow a workoutonline, and my go-to lately has been growingannanas here on YouTube.( movie parts of workout, showering, makinglunch, ingesting) Alright, Fred and I are both well-fed andhappy. We munch and then we went for a longer walkwith a friend. Its such a beautiful period! Now, Im going to check off some of my smalltargets which are mostly administrative stuff.So, e-mails, invoices, things like that. Now, I like batching, which is my fifth tip. Batching mostly necessitates grouping similartasks together and doing them all at once, instead of doing them separately and morefrequently. This is something that Im trying to becomebetter at, for instance, with my newsletter. It would make a whole lot more sense for me( from a fertile perspective) to write out four newsletters, formerly a few months, instead ofsitting down to write one each week. Im done with all my small targets, andIm going to take an hour or so to do some in-betweens. Ive started wants to play in Procreate, exactly to kind of explore my aesthetic back more.Im too going to Play with Fred and basicallyjust time whatever I want that isnt related to work, and Ill actually introduced thisas my sixth gratuity. At any workplace, break-dance are crucial; to rechargeour artilleries, to boost our recital, but I also think that the mode we invest those breaksis important. Like, I dont consider a 5 minute interruption shouldbe consume talking about creation. I speculate those 5 minutes would be much betterspent watching feline videos. The extent is to detach from duty and to dosomething that forces us to focus on something else. Alright, Im about to grow the last treesfor today working on this project that I mentioned in the beginning. I merely gaped it over and I dont thinkIm going to finish it tonight, but thats okay. Im going to work on it some more tomorrowand hopefully finish it then ..
