Daily Charge: Put some reprieve in your day to increase your production.

daily charge Jul 14, 2020

It is truly amazing to see how many people this resonates with as we received some great feedback on yesterday's daily charge.

And with that in mind, we continue to make sure you are you are building your business with intention and pushing to capacity while respecting your rest and recovery.

Let's dive in...

3 Ideas From Me

To perform and produce at the highest levels possible, our schedules must:

  1. Include reprieve from our activities and actions.
  2. Clear and distinct transition between varying skill-based tasks.
  3. Definitive time to refocus and set intent for the upcoming time block.

To truly find your state of peak performance and production, implement the Pomdoro Principle and operate in intervals of 25/5 or 50/10.  Meaning, 25 minutes in high intensity focused production with 5 minutes of reprieve and refocus (or 50 and 5).

Some of the most productive individuals have amazing rest and recovery routines during their day... not just at the end.  it may sound counter-intuitive and yet, you are able to exponentially raise your level of execution by intentionally resting during your day.

2 Quotes From Other Thought Leaders

Garth Stein
"Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our destiny.  Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves."

K.L. Toth
"Powerful words come with powerful intent.  Where you have passion, strength, courage, and determination you can accomplish anything."

1 Question For You

How long are your time blocks?

Rest and recovery aren't just bookending your days - it's a part of the rhythm in your time blocking schedule (if you operate the blocks correctly).  With that in mind, my challenge for you today is to schedule your time blocks in 50 minute intervals and invest 10 minutes every hour doing a quick reflection on the last 50 minutes and refocusing on your next time block.  This will help you stay focused and intentional with your upcoming production and performance.
