Reason # 1 Gain a Perfect Blend of Time – Attention – Energy

You must be agreed to the fact that our productivity at workplace lies in three most important factors; time, attention and energy.

As both our workplace and nature of work have become more complex than ever before, we need more creativity, focus and physical and emotional energy. It is impossible for you to live in a distraction free environment; therefore, you need to work harder to manage your energy, focus and time. “The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey” facilitates this objective by letting you know how to optimize your behavior and routine like adequate sleep, regular breaks and exercise.

Reason # 2 Beat the Procrastination Triggers

Though most of us don’t know the exact definition of procrastination, yet we all have been a victim of it at our workplaces. Chris explains this factor by highlighting its 6 triggers that unintentionally make you procrastinate on the tasks., including boredom, difficulty, frustration, unclear, lacking in personal meaning and free of intrinsic rewards.

Chris has shown that knowing these triggers helps you as you can see exactly where you are procrastinating on a specific task. Based on this information, “The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey” helps you devise solutions to make that task easier and interesting to do.

Reason # 3 Get the Most of PEAK Times

You must be aware of the times in a day where your brain is most functional and energy at its peak. Usually, we keep challenging and highly analytical tasks for this period, called “Biological Prime Time” by Charis Bailey. He explains that Biological Prime Time differs from person to person and how you can determine your BPT. Knowing your BPT is important since once you figure it out, you can take the benefits of the steps mentioned by Chris to sync it with your challenging tasks.

Reason 4 # Keep Your Commitments

It happens quite a lot of times that you commit to do something in future but that future doesn’t come, eventually putting you into a guilt. Chris defines it in a very interesting as well as psychological way. He says that we think of our future selves exactly the same we think of strangers; don’t feel the pain, stress or weight of the burden strangers pass through. We treat our future selves the same way.

Chris mentions that he uses an app called AgingBooth that lets him create an older picture of him, by looking at which, he becomes less inclined to put extra commitment or burden onto his future self. He also sometimes writes letters to his future self via FutureMe. Know more interesting aps and techniques in The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey.

Reason 5 # Put Things on Waiting

Many of us fail to manage time by focusing the less important tasks and ignoring the important ones. The “Waiting for” list, as explained by Chris, is the best place to keep those less important things. Doing this, you become focused on more important and action-oriented tasks on time. Just a regular check on the list is required.
