Episode 99: Using Focus Blocks to Get Your Productivity Back On Track 1


Creative Productivity

“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”
― Winston S. Churchill

Hi, my name is Brad and I’m addicted to distraction in today’s modern-day tech world.

Hi Brad, welcome, we’re glad you’re here!

So, I’ve built up a lot of bad habits and over the last couple of years working for myself, or for ourselves, that was just eating my shorts, in terms of actually getting creative productivity done towards the business.

How many of us can relate to this? Whether you’re a creative entrepreneur working from home or in the office, how many of us have slowly built up the habit of being distracted? Let me check my email one more time, reply to text messages, get up to buy a coffee, go to the bathroom, walk away from the desk, and actually move out of the flow… In this age of connection, it’s easier than ever to become a master of distractibility and kill creative productivity!

During today’s podcast, we’ll be sharing some of our biggest time stealers and what you can do to increase major creative flow in your workday by increasing your focus. If you’re interested in creating more grace and ease in your business, then check out the podcast episode in the resources below. One of my biggest time stealers is the multiple browser tabs that I reference while working. But I always had many more open than I needed, ad-free music, and we can always talk about that some more another time. We have Amazon Prime, so if you have Prime, you have Amazon music. It’s not the one with millions and millions of songs, but it has quite a bit…

I want to share something with you that’s been working for me to improve my productivity: When you increase focus … you increase productivity.

Okay let’s dig into this a little bit, and I can introduce starting out with 10-minute focus blocks. We can all commit to spending 10 minutes of time focused on a specific project or task, which is why I like working with this block of time. What’s worked well for me is starting out with a couple of 10-minute focus blocks in my day–not jamming my entire calendar with a gazillion 10-minute focus blocks. The intention is to begin with something that’s achievable and start building the habit of focus. Minette and I share more on this in the podcast, so we’ll see you over there!
