It’s sad to think about, but in just two short weeks my Year of Productivity project will be over.
I have some really exciting stuff planned for the close of the project (and for what I’ll be doing after), but before I share all that with you, I’m conducting one final productivity experiment. I’ve done a lot of crazy productivity experiments for my year of productivity so far, and of course I want to go out as productive as I can.
For my final productivity experiment, I’m going to live as productively as possible for two weeks; incorporating all of the incredible lessons I’ve learned from my previous productivity experiments while getting as much done as I can.
As I wind down my year of productivity things are busier than ever, so needless to say I’ll have a lot of tasks to measure how productive I am against, including: creating and designing a brand new website for after AYOP, preparing this AYOP site so it looks even more awesome after the project is over, helping coordinate a video shoot for an ending video for the project, writing a beautiful article on this experiment, and a lot more.
Here are the main rules I’m setting for myself for this experiment, with a link to the experiments the rules are based on (I’ll be writing about these and the other rules in the article!):
- Define my three daily outcomes every morning, and work on pomodoro time for larger tasks
- Drink mostly water, no alcohol, and drink caffeine strategically
- Eat mostly vegetables for carbs, and eat smaller portions
- Meditate for 30 minutes every day
- Use my smartphone minimally to focus more on higher-leverage activities
- Watch a TED talk every morning, for inspiration and motivation
- Do 40 hours of work a week–no more, and no less
- Turn my phone on airplane mode from 8am-8pm
I’m pumped for this one, and can’t wait to share everything I learn with you!
