Right now, you might be staring at a blank screen and struggling to write your report. But if you write random sentences for just two minutes, then you may find that useful sentences start to roll off your fingers.

The physics of productivity. Incorporate Newton's Laws into your stack #marketing #startups

really nice!!

Good article

First Law of Motion: An object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an external force. (i.e. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. Objects at rest tend to stay at rest.)

Productivity laws.

Notice that you don’t have to finish your task. In fact, you don’t even have to work on the primary task. However, thanks to Newton’s first law, you’ll often find that once you start this little 2-minute task, it is much easier to keep moving.

Force is a vector. Consider magnitude and direction.

There are many physical laws that can explain human behaviour. Newton's Laws are among them.

intriguing

[Newton's laws of motion reveal insights that tell you pretty much everything you need to know about how to be productive.

1. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. Find a way to get started in less than 2 minutes.

2. It's not just about working hard, it's also about working on the right things. You have a limited amount of force and where you apply it matters.

3. Your productivity is a balance of opposing forces. If you want to be more productive, you can either power through the barriers or remove the opposing forces. The second option seems to be less stressful.]

Tested TTS for the first time and it sounded like Richard Ayoade cracking smart and sexy jokes 🤣

"As I like to say, if you eliminated all of the things distracting you from being productive, you wouldn't need tips on how to become more productive"

this is great

What most people don’t know, however, is that Newton’s three laws of motion can be used as an interesting analogy for increasing your productivity, simplifying your work, and improving your life.

How Newton's Science is helping me be more productive

Make your life productive. Let Newton’s Law of Motion guide you. Very simple article but insightful.

The second option is to eliminate the opposing forces. Simplify your life, learn how to say no, change your environment, reduce the number of responsibilities that you take on, and otherwise eliminate the forces that are holding you back.

Very simple and self-explantory, but definitely very helpful! -Ren

Interesting stuff although..

Productivity.

If we want to become more effective and more productive, then we have two choices.

The first option is to add more productive force. This is the “power through it” option. We gut it out, drink another cup of coffee, and work harder. This is why people take drugs that help them focus or watch a motivational video to pump themselves up. It's all an effort to increase your productive force and overpower the unproductive forces we face.

Obviously, you can only do this for so long before you burn out, but for a brief moment the “power through it” strategy can work well.

The second option is to eliminate the opposing forces. Simplify your life, learn how to say no, change your environment, reduce the number of responsibilities that you take on, and otherwise eliminate the forces that are holding you back.

If you reduce the unproductive forces in your life, your productivity will glide forward naturally. It's like you magically remove the hand that has been holding you back. (As I like to say, if you eliminated all of the things distracting you from being productive, you wouldn't need tips on how to become more productive.) 5

Most people try to power through and hammer their way past the barriers. The problem with this strategy is that you're still dealing with the other force. I find it to be much less stressful to cut out the opposing forces and let your productivity naturally flow forward.

Newton's Laws of Productivity
Newton's laws of motion reveal insights that tell you pretty much everything you need to know about how to be productive.

It's not just about working hard, it's also about working on the right things. You have a limited amount of force and where you apply it matters.
Your productivity is a balance of opposing forces. If you want to be more productive, you can either power through the barriers or remove the opposing forces. The second option seems to be less stressful.

Perfect pointers on how to stay productive. Although pushing through a task can lead to an increase on productivity, as you're more focused on the task at hand and receive less distractions.

I've always been interested in inertia. Enjoyed this read.

It's amazing how Newton's law fundamentally translates to our everyday work-life. Awesome tips

it actually makes a lot of sense

Thought this was a really interesting way to look at the concept of productivity.

Newton's Laws of Motion can be used as analogy in increasing productivity!

Interesting correlation!
