“We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.”
When it comes to productivity, simplicity is key. Your actions are either efficient or inefficient & using time as a tool is usually the difference between success & failure.
In fact, one of the leading causes of failure is spending too much time on the inefficient. On the flip side — your odds of success greatly increase when you’re able to invest more time into efficient actions.
This is because, it’s not the number of things you do, it’s the EFFICIENCY of your actions that truly matters. You could be the most consistent person in the World, but if you’re constantly inefficient — the more things you do, the more time you waste.
Whatever your goal in life — increasing professional productivity, sharpening concentration or rapidly improving your ability to think deep. Productive Meditation is the perfect tool to help you:
- Increase focus
- Solve problems faster
- Think deeper
- Utilize (otherwise wasted) time
At the heart of every successful business, organization, entrepreneur, etc. is efficient action. We’ve all been in positions where time is at a premium and we find ourselves being busy but not necessarily productive.
A great entry point for productive meditation is identifying what’s efficient & inefficient within your daily routine. Once you have identified those variables, you can use productive meditation to turn those inefficient acts into efficient acts.
The overall goal of productive meditation is to utilize — otherwise wasted — time. For example, this could be:
- Your daily commute
- Taking a shower
- Going for a walk
- Working out, etc.
Anything where you’re physically engaged but not mentally — given the opportunity — take this time to center your attention on a single problem that requires a solution. This could be thinking over a new business strategy, going over outlines for a presentation or finalizing a report.
