1. Introduction: Hello. Welcome to my new class. How to get stuff done by using a 100 year old method. So, do you want to know the secret to avoid multitasking and start getting more done in the shortest amount of time possible in this class? I will teach you the 100 year or method to get the stuff 10 at last without procrastinating anymore. So to running the class hit a blue button below the video on C Inside. Thank you. 2. Multitasking doesn´t work: Hello. Welcome to my new class. Have to get this stuff done by using a 100 year old method. So let's see. First, white multitasking doesn't work. Everyone was to get more done in the shortest amount of time possible. But unfortunately, multi testing is limited to a small number of tasks you can't attend toe. A nurse in phone called while you prepare an equally important report because both off this task requires focus. Most people, sweetie between two equally important task to get them both down at a set at the same time . But that doesn't work. Willie there. Have you ever got caught on a call working on some emails when the person of the ER line asked, What do you think? Um, you didn't hear a word he or she said, because you're Booth passing three writing important males. That's what I'm talking about. So and the human brain can only focus on one important task at a time. Unusually sad functions or delays the full extent off our mental abilities when we switch our focus from one task to another, the change can disrupt the flow of thoughts on first, then in a different direction. It takes our brains sometime to relying on the Causton. Treating can become confusing after some time and compromise the quality of our work. The conference is similar to the focus off a Cumberland's. Even the with camera on lenses on the market don't focus immediately after their moved from one position to another. If you don't keep switching from position to push. If Sian Sorry stop from position to position it repeatedly, you will end up compromising the quality off the pictures. So the more inefficient stress city is to take all the pictures unit from one position before moving to the next one. 3. Simple strategy, effective results: Okay, so here is the method. It's a simple tradition, but it has effective results. Expert recommends that you focused entirely on one task before moving on to the next one in 1918 I sexually full of this month. I'm productivity consultant name. I really introduced a method tin quiz. Productivity. His plans, he asked. A sector, Davis says You did 30 to do this. Make a least off six important task for tomorrow at the end off each work day, then prioritize them based on their importance. Following a about the next eight, you have to focus on the first task on the list and then work into the first stuff is complete before moving on, then complete all tasks on the least in the same manner and repeated the process for the next day. In the six important task leases. A started team might sound simple, but it helps you stay focused. Get your worked and faster and increases the quality off your reports because you can get that tusk all off your focus. You don't have to pay. The sweeting cost your brain in course. On the result will be more productivity unless stress I m if you implement this is strategy . For a few weeks you will see an increase in your output. Fillmore organized un more focused. Essentially, you will feel you will be much less scattered. Okay, well, this is all for this video was here and then this one. 4. The scientific argument: Okay. Hello again. Let's continue with the class. So in this video, we're going to talk about a scientific argument for muttering one thing at a time. Many people have multiple areas off life they will like to group. For example, to reach more people with your writing or to list heavier wife, wait at the regime or to start practicing mindful lends more constantly. Okay, you will probably have a lonely yourself off these. Sorry, Awfully sorry. You're like you brew the problem. If even if you're committed to working heart on your goes A our little natural tendency is to revert back to our whole habits at some point, making a permanent lifestyle change. It's really difficult. And here is a research there. Every searches, studies Sorry that show how to make these difficult lifestyle changes a little bit easier. As you'll see, however, the approach to mastering many areas of life, it is somewhat counter intuitive. So if you want to muster multiple habits and stick to them for good, then you need to feel weird how to be consistent. So how can you do that? Well, here's one of the most rose findings from psychology research on how to actually follow through. Own out your goes. A. This research has shown that you are 2 to 3 times more likely to stick with your habits. If you make a specific plan for when, where and how you will perform their behavior. For example, you want off the story. Study. Scientists expect people to fill out descendants here in the next week. I will protect in at least 20 minutes off Biggers exercise on a a day at a time off day at in a certain place. Okay, researchers found the people who feel out the sentence were 2 to 3 times more likely to actually exercise compared to a Contra group who did not make plans for the fruit er if it their behavior. So psychologists call disease specific plants implementation intentions because they state when where how intend to implement a particular behavior So it is finding is a well proven has been repeated in 100 styles across a broad range off areas. For example, implementation intentions have been found to increase the odds that people will start exercising, begin recycling, um, with this tying and even stop smoking, however, and this is crucial to understand, full of research has discovered that implementation intentions only work when you focus on one goal at a time. In fact, researchers found that people who try to accomplish multiple goals were less committed unless likely to succeed. That those who focus on a single goal. This is important. So let me repeat it. Developing a specific plan for when, where and how just really stick to. And you have It will dramatically increase the odds that you will actually follow through. But only on only every focus on a single go at the time. Okay. He was all for the video. See you in the next one. I hope. Like it. Thank you. 5. What happens when you implement it: Okay, So what happens when you focus on one thing at a time? A Another saints, by recent to focus someone habit at a time is that when you begin practicing, so I knew how it it required a lot of conscious effort to remember to do it. After After what, however, the patent off behavior becomes easier, even toe. Eventually, your new have it becomes a nirmal verging on the process is more always mindless. On automatic. Researchers have, ah, fancy term for this process, called automaticity. Automaticity is there is the ability to firm from a behavior without thinking I would eat step, which allows the pattern to become automatic on. Have it well. But there such a thing automaticity only, of course, as the results off lost off repetition and practice. So the more rips you putting, the more automatic a behavior becomes. The most important thing to note is that there is some tipping point at with new habits become more or less automatic. The time it takes to be a have. It depends on many factors, including how difficult it have. It is what your environment is like your genetics am and much more. But it said that they have a the average how it takes about 66 day to become automatic. So as the conclusion off requests. And I want to say that and the best way to 10 Sherlock in terror life is by not changing your entire life. Instead, it is better to focus on one specific habit, working it until you master it and make it an automatic part off your daily life. Then repeat the process for the next habit. They went to master more things in the long run is to simply focus on one thing right now. OK, and then continue with the other. Well, that was all for the class. Thank you for seeing it. If you like it, please leave a review and take out my other classes. Thank you very much for working on. As I always say, Keep learning. Keep growing. Thank you very much.
