Insane Productivity Module 5

Module 5 is about designing your glorious life.  Make sure you don’t go chasing the wrong things your whole life.  Learn how to avoid that here.

First let’s talk about the achievement addiction.  There’s always a GAP between where you are and where you want to go.  “The push to achieve can itself become an addiction, and like an addict, you’re only as good as your last achievement fix.” – Jim Loehr

RESULT:  Protracted Frustration and disillusionment.

Vicious cycle of despair.  Pursuit>Achievement>Dissatisfaction>Pursuit>  The chase itself can become obsessive.  It’s called the hedonic treadmill.  Then when people feel the emptiness of achievement they take a brute force approach:  I’ll do more of this until it feels good.  Instead, stop and consider:  Could it be that I am chasing the wrong things?

Describe your best self.  Describe your best life.  What would be attributes, characteristics, and qualities of your best self?  How do you want to be remembered?


“The goal of this human adventure is productivity, pursuing the full development of all your potential.” – Jim Rohn

“People think of happiness as freedom and having fun.  But the truth is, what usually makes people happy is meeting their responsibilities, doing a good job,doing something they believe in.” – Ethan Hawke

What is Success to You?

Figure it out, or you’ll never know when you achieve it.

John Wooden definition of success:

Success is peace of mind, that is the direct result of knowing that you have done your best, at becoming the best you are capable of becoming.

The 4th crippling addiction we will cover today is the myth of multitasking.  Human need behind it:  I am worthy.  I am capable.  I am important.

“When you multi-task it’s inevitable that each individual task be slower and of lower quality.” – James Johnson, research psychologist at NASA .  28% of productive focus is wasted on multitasking.  Better stated as Switching.  Switching makes you dumber than being stoned.  IQ drops by 10 points, versus 5 if smoking marijuana.  – CNN World

You can physically and mentally multitask.  Run and listen, drive and talk.  However, you cannot use same part of the brain simultaneously.  You can’t listen to conference call and process email.  You can’t listen to meeting and tweet or txt.  Attempting to do 2 things at once essentially creates one new thing.  Not driving and dialing phone.  It’s driving while dialing the phone.  “Intense multitasking can produce a stress response, an adrenaline rush that when prolonged can damage cells that form new memory.”  – Dr. David Meyer, Psychology University of Michigan

Darren Hardy Myth of Multitasking

Those who multitask are actually less efficent than those who focus on one project at a time.  The time lost switching among tasks increases the complexity and stress to perform the task. – Journal of Experimental Psychology

You are giving yourself ADD.  Acquired Attention Deficit Disorder.  People who become accustomed to a constant stimulation and feel bored in the absence of it.  We are actually CHOOSING a state of being that most people consider an affliction and take medication to alleviate.  – Dr. John Ratey, Psychologist from Harvard University.

Chronic high-stress multitasking causes:

  • Gaps in short term memory loss
  • Lapses in attentiveness
  • Loss of concentration
  • Communication Problems with others
  • Stress symptoms, such as shortness of breath.

– Dr. David Meyer, Psychology University of Michigan

We put lots of energy into avoiding the hard and difficult tasks.  It’s not that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we don’t do it.

Darren Hardy Strategy of high performance

Single Tasking. Do one thing at a time.

We are going to War over this next pitch. – Pete Rose

Also when we immerse in a single task, we can access phenomenal FLOW.  You don’t have to convince yourself to do everything, just Next Thing.

Focus on Action not Outcomes.  Here’s the challenge.  Don’t multitask for one week.  When you’re on the phone, be on the phone.  In a meeting- be in the meeting.  Knock at the door- hold off.  Don’t check your phone while driving, going to the bathroom, walking or in the presence of another human being.  Productivity is an inside out game.

You can’t get it all done.  Let it go!  There’s always more to do than anyone will ever get to.  It all comes down to choices.

Watch the video below to learn how to make better choices in your life starting today.  Answer the questions.

Darren Hardy Insane Productivity Module 3

It’s no the time you put in, it’s what you put in the time.  Same time, higher impact.  Find your power hours and protect them with a vengeance.  Your power hours are the times during the day when you are most powerful mentally.

It is your responsibility to train the people around you.  You get in life what you tolerate.  Life will organize around the standards you set.  All behavior is training those around you how to treat you.

  • Email (designated time)
  • Knock at door (schedule)
  • Calls (never answer)  Darren never answers a live phone.  You don’t have to go to this extreme, but consider putting your phone on silent or vibrate at least.
  • Showing up late (10/15 rule)
  • Talk to You (respect)

Email should be avoided for all time-sensitive and urgent information.  People who attend to email vigilantly and respond immediately are probably also delivering lower-quality output on their real work.  Teach people how to communicate with you.  Once you set the rules, don’t break them.  People feel safer knowing the boundaries.  It may seem harsh at the time, but in the long run it reduces their stress and uncertainty.

Don’t take on other people’s problems all day.  Instead tell yourself this, “Ah, you forgot your monkey.”  Listen, have compassion, empathize and then leave the conversation with, “I’m sure you’ll figure it out.”

What do you need to stop tolerating?  Write down at least three things.

Darren Hardy Insane Productivity

“The greatest geniuses sometimes accomplish more when they work less.”  Leonardo DaVinci.

It is a very good plan every now and then to go away and have a little relaxation..when you come back to the work, your judgement will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose the power of judgment.

Rest is a critical component of high performance.  Because your body craves oscillation.  The problem is the absence of disciplined and intermittent recovery.  Chronic stress without recovery depletes energy reserves, leads to burn-out and breakdown, and ultimately undermines performance.  The greater the performance demand, the greater the need for recovery.

Game-Changing Mindset Shift-

You get paid to rest.  Key to going faster is to relax.  “Having lost sight of our goals, we redouble our efforts.” – Mark Twain


Go faster…Slow down

When urgent..Relax

More done…Less Effort.

Darren Hardy Insane Productivity: Module 2

Today we will learn about some crushing addictions that are crippling your performance and wrecking your potential.  Our human weakness is being preyed upon.

Darren Hardy Insane Productivity

The first crippling addiction we have is that we want to be wanted!

We want to be wanted.  Many suffer the “Everyone ought to love me all the time syndrome.  Here’s a game-changing mindset shift.  If people around you are happy with you, you are not doing great work.  You are too wound up pleasing everyone else.  Be leery of the crabs around you, content with staying in the trap.  Challenge the status quo and be yourself regardless of what other people will think of you.

imageThe 2nd crippling addiction:  The “What am I missing?” syndrome.

Called “continuous partial attention.”  Always scanning the periphery in case something more important surfaces.  T0 be busy and connected is to fell alive, but the consequences is we are over-stimulated, overwound, and ultimately unproductive and unfulfilled.” – Linda Stone, former Apple and Microsoft researcher

It’s random reinforcement.  The fact that you don’t know when important news will come means you will quickly engage in obsessive-compulsive behavior.

Long-term studies prove the most important human discipline involved in long-term success is the ability to forego Immediate Gratification for a larger but delayed reward. – Walter Mischel Department of Psychology Columbia University

Another game-changing mindset shift:  You don’t need to know!

Instead spend less time following other people’s lives and more time leading your own.  Separate the world from your world.  Be in the world but not of the world.  It’s much easier and more effective to avoid temptation than to resist it.  So turn off email notifications that you don’t need.  Unsubscribe from certain updates.  Stop watching so much T.V.  Stop checking your FB, twitter, Vine, and Instagram incessantly.

Darren Hardy 3rd Crippling Addiction:  Busy being busy and accomplishing little.

We all want to be desired and to feel important.  Being busy feeds this human need.  Busy can feel great!  We feel important, needed, validated, “productive” and  we are really distracted from real work.  It offers a convenient excuse:  “I’m constantly doing, giving, striving, achieving and working just as hard as I can.”  As a culture we are obsessed with racing so as to fulfill a sense of productivity.  We have URGENCY addiction.

Everyone likes to look busy.  Some make a career out of it.  Zooming around, accomplishing very little.  It’s called:  active Non-Action.  We are psychologically conditioned from infancy to do what’s fun and easy rather than what’s hard and necessary.  Distractions offer us relief.  A seemingly justified excuse.

On average we get distracted every 3 minutes and it takes 11 minutes to regain concentration.  (See anything wrong with that?)  40% of time we don’t resume task previously working on.  We are very rarely if not ever in a state of concentrated focus.  We have to go to war against distractions.  Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures.  Move from reacting to creating.  Work on your agenda, not responding to someone else’s.  Your boss is no longer in corner office.  Your boss has become the device in your pocket.

“A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually.  One must fight for a life of action, not reaction.”  – Rita Mae Brown

Strategies of High Performance

Don’t mistake:

Rushing for Results

Movement for Achievement

Activity for Productivity

There is a big difference between long work and hard work, otherwise known as real work.  Instead of trying to do more to get better results. opt to do more of the right things.  Don’t major in minors.  Spending Major time on Minor activities.  Those things that matter the least should not get int he way of those things that matter the most.

Strategy to Immediately Triple your Productivity and Results

90 minute jam sessions of high-intensity training and practice regimen of elite performers.  Create a bubble of silence where you won’t get distracted.  Get lost.  If they can’t find you, they can’t interrupt you.  Have a physical timer counting down from 90 minutes where you can see the time counting down.  If you don’t have a timer, just use your phone.  Work completely non-distracted for 90 minutes straight on one project or goal.

You will begin to build your attention span back up to where it should be for high performers.  Thanks for reading and I hope you apply these tactics and take them to heart.

The #1 threat to you to achieve your dream and have a successful productive future is Distractions!

Speed of change is accelerating.  Keep up or you’ll be left behind. “In the 21st century we won’t experience 100 years of progress, but 20,000 years worth of progress.” – Raymond Kurzweil in Law of Accelerating Returns.

30 steps linear: 1, 2, 3, 4 @ 30 = 30

30 steps Exponentially: 1, 2, 4, 8 @ 30 = 1Billion!

“All the information ever created in human history up to 2003 is created EVERY DAY.” – Eric Schmidt while CEO of Google

Obesity is not food overload, it’s food over-consumption.  Stress, distraction is not information overload, it’s information over-consumption.  The more overwhelmed we are, the more we search for a convenient distraction.  With all these distractions, the most important skill of the 21st century is the ability to control your attention.  Stay focused on what’s really important to you.  Where your attention goes, energy flows!
