Get Productive By Doing Nothing


Robby

Sometimes it seems like there are so many things to do that we can’t possibly tackle them all. This tends to paralyze us and prevent us from feeling like we could ever be productive.

What’s the way forward in this situation? Try intentionally doing nothing.

That’s right: if work is overwhelming, get up from your desk and take a walk. Call a friend to meet for an early lunch. Grab a trade magazine you’ve been thinking about reading and find a quiet spot in a lobby or conference room. The opportunity to do nothing will often recharge you and give you more energy to move forward when you return.

A major secret of productivity is emotional management. People who are efficient at work don’t just have fantastic skills, they also know their own emotions extremely well. They know what tasks will upset them and which will excite them. They know which activities will seem to take forever and which will fly by. By managing the emotional content of work, we are able to be in a better position for the work itself.

Try it! You’ll be amazed how much work you get done by stopping work for a little while.
