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 gratuities, pranks and mythought process. Now, while I is a well-known fact that doing YouTube isn’tsomething that most people can relate to, I’ve clearly 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 evoked to get the working day started! I exactly need to take this little guy outsidefirst or else he’ll confuse my sip for the loo.While Fred is searching for the perfect spotto recognize his province, 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 spray some delight 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 coming 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 Transmit out invoicesWork on a move In-betweens. I used to call these free time, butI decided I didnt like that word, 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 thrown 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 minutes when I interrupt, and theyre important: SkincareShower CookFeed, continue, nestle, instruct, 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 gait straight-out to my table in my PJs and sloppy “hairs-breadth”. But that doesnt make me feel good. It obligates me feel lazy. I prefer to change into a comfy dress. Tip number two is cooking, which is justanother word for reducing friction, because resistance debris intensity and demotivates us. Studies have shown that most people are mostproductive in the morning, and I dont want to spend that heyday productivity period doingthings that couldve been done the night before, such as putting apart dishes, emptyingmy remember poster, setting up my camera or looking for my workout clothes.Basically, anything I can do the darknes beforeto set myself up for a friction-less morning, Ill do. For that main reasons, I favor doing somework on my computer for 30 instants before acquiring breakfast. It gets the ball going. Breakfast, check! And now I’m just going to continue where Ileft off, simply this time, Ill be using the pomodoro technique, which is my thirdtip. So, with pomodoro, you mostly work or studyin interims of 25 times with 5 minute separates, and that is supposed to help you stay focused. You can have longer delays but 25 minutesis the standard. You dont need an app or anything for it, you can simply placed a timer on your telephone .. Nonetheless, I like to use the app Forest becauseI like concluding things a bit more fun whenever I can.In short-lived, the way it labor is that for every2 5 minutes that I complete, I thrive 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 obviously not about to kill offan entire tree really to check instagram, it is therefore pieces! So, my proposal 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 mail me this keyboard case which is their Combo Touch a while backto try out, and its now attached 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 deeming. So, when Im just starting to brainstormfor a video, I commonly go over some of my gazette introductions, which I’m still use a physicalnotebook for.I go over my notebook notations and other random noteswhich are typically in Notion. And then, sometimes, I like to illustratemy hypothesis, either in a physical diary, or in any app that allows me to doodle, suchas the Document app. Depending on specific topics and type of video, Ill do quite a bit of reading as well; commodities, research, journals, much of which Iwill have saved onto Instapaper which is where I accumulate commodities that I want to be able togo back to. Ill sometimes likewise chat with friends andwith you all on Instagram to get different perspectives on things. As cohesive dreams are starting to formin my attention, I positioned them into a google docs, which is where Im currently writing outmy memoes and scripts for these videos.If youd like a more in-depth video on thisprocess, please let me know in the comments. As a imaginative, the versatility of the ComboTouch has elevated my workflow. Not to mention it also saves my iPad protected, it has a nice woven fabric, its back light so I can use it when it gets dark, theresa distinguish 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 chest. 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 body is beneficial to pretty muchevery aspect of life as Im sure most of you know; even a 10 time stroll is betterthan nothing at all.Now, Im not someone who gets super excitedto work out. But what promotions 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.( film parts of workout, showering, makinglunch, chewing) Alright, Fred and I are both well-fed andhappy. We gobble and then we disappeared for a longer walkwith a friend. Its such a beautiful epoch! Now, Im going to check off some of my smalltargets which are mostly administrative stuff. So, e-mails, statements, things like that. Now, I like batching, which is my fifth tip. Batching mostly conveys 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 example, with my newsletter. It would make a whole lot more sense for me( from a beneficial perspective) to write out four newsletters, once a month, 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 playing around in Procreate, really to kind of explore my imaginative line-up more. Im also going to Play with Fred and basicallyjust do whatever I want that isnt related to work, and Ill actually settled thisas my sixth gratuity. At any workplace, breaks are crucial; to rechargeour batteries, to boost our action, but I also think that the route we invest those breaksis important. Like, I dont visualize a 5 time flout shouldbe expend talking about make. I envisage those 5 minutes would be much betterspent watching cat videos.The point is to detach from cultivate 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 exactly glanced 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 ..
