One Technique That Will Make Any Boring Task Pure Fun And Increase Your Productivity By More Than 125%!

Next time you’ll catch yourself trying to put an important task off, take a piece of paper and answer three simple questions.

1. Where you are?
2. What do you want to do?
3. How you will feel while doing it?

While writing down what do you want to do you will already imagine yourself doing it. And it won’t be very difficult for you to get up and do it.

Let’s say you’ve been putting off organizing your desk. You always find more important tasks to do and it’s never enough time to clean it and put everything in place.

Just sit down, take a piece of paper and begin writing: “It’s Monday, 8:45am. I’m sitting in my office, drinking coffee. I want to organize my desk. It will only take me about 1 hour and I will feel energetic and satisfied that I finally got it done. My desk will be clean, everything will be sorted and in place…”
Just as you’re writing it you feel the desire to get up and do it. Because you want your desk organized, you want to feel satisfied and you’ve already imagined yourself doing it.

Remember, all you have to do is to answer three questions. Where you are, what do you want to do, and how will you feel while doing it. It’s a very simple technique but it works like a magic!

Do you know how to turn monotonous boring task into fun?

Make a game out of it!
For example, time yourself and keep trying to improve your time. Let’s say you have to peel 20 pounds of apples.

Challenge yourself!
Set a record how many apples can you peel in 3 minutes Then try to beat your own record. Or you can time yourself to see how long it takes you to peel one apple. And beat your record again!

The good thing is you will always be a winner. You can turn any boring task into fun game. Just use a little imagination! This simple trick has proven to increase productivity by more than
125%! Use it and you’ll notice that you’re getting more work done in a less amount of time.

To your success!
