How are you doing this week?
Here are this week’s 3 things!
This week’s theme is about some of the hacks that will boost your mental power and productivity.
Why should we spend time on learning? The answer is simple: learning is the single best investment of our time that we can make. Or as Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Read more about this 5-hour rule in this article and invest some free time weekly to learn about new things. It’s a good idea to explore different niches and pick some which have your interest.
The rule is simple: The moment you have an instinct to act on a goal you must act on in it immediately (or within five seconds) — otherwise, your brain will start leaning towards procrastination. This technique lets your brain eliminate doubts, fears, and emotions that hinder you from performing. Once you start using the rule correctly, those five seconds can become 5 minutes, 5 hours, 5 days, up until you finish your task. Most tasks utilize rational parts of our brain. Unfortunately, these are the same parts of our minds that helped us avoid danger in primitive times. It’s a slow and inefficient process that causes procrastination, and stress only makes it worse. The key here is to end the indecision cycle by to activating the proper parts of your brain.
The impact of art, music, and writing can be seen in your physical body as well. In other words, the process of creating art doesn’t just make you feel better, it also creates real, physical changes inside your body. Key is to create more than you consume. The moral of this story is that the process of making art — whether that be writing, painting, singing, dancing, or anything in between — is good for you. There are both physical and mental benefits from creating art, expressing yourself in a tangible way, and sharing something with the world. Art offers an outlet and a release from all the incoming signals and creates an outgoing one instead. Produce something. Express yourself in some way. As long as you contribute rather than consume, anything you do can be a work of art.
