It’s not that I don’t like people, but . . .

I sure get a LOT done on those days most other people are taking the day off.

My plan for the week was to stay focused with my normal FLOW Monday-Thursday . . . and clean up of my accumulated messes today – Good Friday!

Such a fabulous plan that was. Knowing this would be 4 days instead 5 for FLOW, I was super intentional all week and accomplished all goals for the week.

This morning felt great because my work for the week was completed before the day started. I arrived in the office at 7:00 AM and dived into the project I’d been avoiding for weeks thinking that I would be lucky to make any reasonable dent in unraveling the fiasco, but I had hope.

3 hours later, I COMPLETED all of the work that needed to be done!

The magic ingredient?

Not a single interruption by any other human . . . 3 hours of pure focus.

Here’s the kicker!

ANYONE can experience this phenomenon any and all days of the week . . . even YOU!

Most people won’t because they’re more about what they can’t do rather what they CAN do!

Imagine the possibilities that might emerge if you were to have 3 hours of hyper-productivity at the start of every working day.

You can do this with just a few necessary adjustments to your routine.

  • Schedule it as an appointment (Time Block)
  • Alert all of your peeps who are accustomed to popping into your office at a whim that’s no longer a thing during that block of time.
  • Show up! (on time)
  • Do NOT open email or Facebook
  • Make this a habit

Apply – Lather – Rinse – Repeat

Apply – Lather – Rinse – Repeat 
Apply – Lather – Rinse – Repeat

"Imagine the possibilities that might emerge if you were to have 3 hours of hyper-productivity at the start of every working day." 

I like that idea!  I tend to be more of a morning person, and like getting things done early in the day.  It sometimes makes the rest of the day feel like vacation.

Good morning Barry. If you are determined and not distracted you can accomplish a great deal.
