Welcome to this episode of MAKE THING MAKE SENSE, today we make sense of productivity in this crazy distr acting, busy thing we call life. Did you know that on average each person is distracted between 50-60 times a day and we spend hours of our day trying to regain focus?
Covid was a major disruption to our routine and structure. It’s also created a lot of extra guilt or stress, we ask ourselves “am I doing the right thing? Have I done enough? Was I truly productive? How much time did I waste?” At our Vistage group we speak about this a lot and all the ways that guilt creeps into a CEO’s life.
So let’s discuss what tactics have we personally implemented in order to regain focus, reduce guilt and increase our productivity.
It’s so easy to get distracted. After being interrupted people need about 25 minutes to regain full focus on the task at hand. One solution is the Pomodoro Sprint, which was developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s, when he began to use his tomato-shaped kitchen timer to organize his work schedule where he would work 25 minutes followed by a 5 minute break. This technique encourages people to work with the time they have—rather than against it.
