Tell me something… Does this describe your day?
You wake up and get ready for work.
You’re in traffic for 1 and a half hours.
You get to work and it’s time for your first meeting.
You then deal with ‘fires’ all through the day.
You have to attend to your emails. Oooops!!! It’s lunchtime
Before you know it, it’s 5.30pm and it’s time to go home.
Oh no…. not another 2 hours in traffic….
You get home too tired to do anything else and wonder what you’ve actually accomplished the whole day….
Guess what, you are living your life managing your time not your energy!!!
Here’s How To Tune into Hero Mode to Increase Your Productivity
I want to introduce you to what I call **HERO MODE**
This is simply working out your daily energy rhythm, then lining up your hardest tasks with your energetic PEAKS and take breaks during the TROUGHS.
Apply it as follows:
Know exactly when you are most energetic and least energetic during the day. Ensure you do not waste that time especially doing energy zapping activities like being stuck in traffic.
Place your highest value, hardest and most important tasks at peak energy times.
Put your easy/mindless tasks at your lowest energy times. Like attending to your emails.
Work out optimal food timing so you don’t eat heavy food during or just before your peak, because comfort food slows you down
Adjust your sleep schedule so that you are resting during dead times.
