When you look at that number, what does it make you think?
Is it high to you?
Because in a 16 hour day, this means ONLY checking email every 12 minutes.
Ding, ding human…
Does the story of Ivan Pavlov ring a bell?
You might be familiar with how he conditioned his dogs to salivate at the sound of a ringing bell.
But do you know why this works so well?
And how it works exactly the same in you and me?
Of course you do!
Because you might be doing it all the time too.
Jumping to a dinging phone, responding to notifications, half the day working for your device, rather than it working for you.
It costs you a ton of time and effectiveness.
Task switching is another
Studies say we switch tasks on average every 10 minutes.
And when you do you lose some 70% of your efficiency!
Even if the task takes little time, all that efficiency is lost like stopping one train in the middle of a jammed line.
Think about that…
If you decided to stop and start a train line all the time.
Or move different stations around every day.
How much time would be wasted in all that switching around?
How much time are you wasting?
A nicer way to ask is, how much time can you be using better?
Looking at your day, what do you notice?
How much of your day is focused on what truly matters?
Where are you moving smoothly?
What times, and what tasks stall you out?
Is it getting started in the a.m.?
On a certain task?
Perhaps you find that you crush your a.m. but you’re stalling in the afternoon?
Maybe you’re fueling with coffee and you’re crashing out?
See my point?
You’ve laid the tracks with your Goals, Mind, Actions Modules in Upgrade YOU.
And here in this final routine you’re putting it on rails for driving through.
Engineering your days for flow
I know it might sound all Gucci!
But, as you see in the video, here we’re merely laying out your day in a way you can best get it done.
Doing this, you find it much easier to focus.
Instead of being interrupted by every ding.
Or task switching over and over, wasting precious efficiency all day.
Here you’re putting your day on rails and driving it home!
Toot toot 🙂
Here’s the final video for the final time for engineering your day for flow.
P.S. As we’re wrapping Upgrade YOU I’d like to build just a few more of your upgrades with you, so hit me up if you want to quickly build together your method for crushing your year!
