How to be More productive in 2017

Associate something you love with something you want to accomplish.
Associate something you love with something you want to accomplish.
Dan Ariely.

"Pick a ritual that you love for me this ritual is the morning coffee and connect it to a productivity-related activity. In my case, it has to do with writing.

"So I connect something I love, which is the coffee ritual, to something else that I love in principle, but not every moment of it, which is writing. It's an almost conditioned response, where I start working and I'm enjoying the coffee and the writing at the same time."

Compassion. Wait, what? Aren't productivity tips typically about shifting mindset, single tasking, deep focus, working in pulses, and a host of other useful tools? Yes. And all those tools can help us be fantastically productive, effective, and even more creative.

"But what compassion recognizes is that we're human. We're going to have stupid days, when nothing seems to go right. We just will. There will be times when we're going to be distracted, unmotivated, scattered, when some crisis at work or in life kept us up all night, or when we're feeling just plain overwhelmed.

"But rather than beat ourselves up, sink into paralyzing negativity, or ruminate endlessly on what went wrong or how we failed, compassion enables us to forgive ourselves, to learn what we can, to see that it's all about practicing, to let go of perfection, and lightly and with grace move forward and try again."

"A key to maximizing productivity is to forget about what you already know or think you know about motivation. We typically assume that there's a direct correlation between how much we want to achieve a given outcome and how likely we are to actually achieve it.

"However, there's a much more constructive way to think about motivation that's to think of it as something you must custom manufacture for each and every goal you wish to achieve. By custom manufacture, I mean to deliberately and creatively put yourself in situations that make you urgently feel like it's necessary.

"Here's my favorite example: After failing time and time again to stick with his good intention to exercise daily, Joe custom manufactured a situation that changed everything. He simply agreed to, from now on, own only one stick of underarm deodorant and keep that one stick of deodorant in his locker at the gym. So the only way he could spare himself from the mortifying embarrassment of stinking all day was to go to the gym. Once he was there, he would feel too foolish about just using his deodorant and leaving, so he would stay and exercise. Joe essentially tricked himself into doing what he intended to do, and eventually exercising daily became a self-sustaining habit."

"Fight the pull of procrastination and get work done in the microsegments of your day by creating and using a 15-minute list.

"This is a list of tasks that can be done in 15 minutes or less. Keep it with you so you can convert those odd moments of time, like waiting in line or waiting at the dentist's office, into productive microsegments of work.

"This list is also your go-to when you feel the tug of procrastination. You can quickly complete a task, which gives you a little energy boost, helping you transition into working on a more challenging or complex project."

I like to schedule my time for deep thinking on hard and important problems on my calendar like a meeting or appointment. I then protect that time like a meeting or appointment: If someone tries to schedule something in it, I tell them I'm busy.

"This simple technique allows me to tune the amount of time I spend in a state of deep work with great accuracy, increasing during some periods and decreasing during others, and provides a clear record of the role these types of efforts are playing in my schedule."

"Follow the 'one-minute rule' and do any task that can be finished in one minute. Hang up your coat, read a letter and toss it, fill in a form, answer an email, note down a citation, pick up your phone message, file a paper ... and so on.

"Because the tasks are so quick, it isn't too hard to follow the rule but it has big results. Accomplishing all those small, nagging tasks makes us feel both calmer and more energetic because we're not dragged down by the accumulated weight of a mass of tiny, insignificant tasks."

"Every Friday, I spend some time thinking through the week ahead. I make myself a short priority list with three categories: career, relationships, self. Making a three-category list reminds me that there should be something in all three categories. It's a quick trick to guarantee me a more balanced life.

"After I've made my list, I look at my calendar for the next week and figure out roughly where things should go. I don't always get to everything, but my goal is to end the week with everything crossed off. That's why I make my priority list on paper. Crossing things off is enormously satisfying."

"It's not what you do, so much as when you do it.

"Our cognitive functioning fluctuates throughout the day. Most of us are significantly worse at absorbing new information, planning ahead, and resisting distractions as the day progresses. That's why the better you are at matching tasks to energy level, the more you can get done with less effort."

Ron Friedman, psychologist and host of the 2017 Peak Work Performance Summit, airing April 2017

"Hands down, the 'rule of three' is my favorite productivity ritual. At the start of each day, I think: When this day is done, what three things will I want to have accomplished?

"In just a few minutes, you separate what's important from what isn't, actually get to consider your longer-term goals on a daily basis and New Year's resolutions, if you make them and consider how constrained your time, attention, and energy will be that day.

"If you're looking to level up to become even more productive, I recommend setting three intentions every week and month as well."

Chris Bailey, author of "A Year of Productivity"
