Drink a glass of water early in the morning.
Shut down all electronic devices two hours before going to bed.
Hang around friends who are upwardly mobile in their thinking.
Avoid opening as many tabs on your laptop while working.
Exercise your body for at least 15 minutes each day.
Declutter your …..
And on and on it goes.
A look at those sentences above and they come off like commands. Of course they are. The life we live on earth is filled with commands. Obey and live or disobey and perish. If you take the sentences above, juggle them in your mind, ponder over them, you’ll find that they’re capsules that mean well.
The beautiful thing is that the commands that help us to live highly productive lives are in abundance that a pandering to the alternative is a futile attempt to live a blissful life. Once more, it’s either you obey and live or you disobey and perish. It’s as simple as it goes.
Let’s take a look at a few. ..
Most sources I’ve read recommend drinking one or two glasses of water right after you wake up. This fires up your metabolism because during sleep, you were dehydrated for about 7 hours and your body needs water. Water helps your body flush out toxins because your kidneys do an amazing job when you drink water in good quantities. Drinking a big glass of water first thing in the morning is a great way to start kicking ass as you embrace your day.
Careful studies have shown that even our small electronic devices emit sufficient light to miscue the brain and promote wakefulness. It shows that if you let them on, it prolongs the brain’s ability to shut down and get into sleep mode. Consequently, this shortens your sleep, leaving you exhausted in the morning. Knackered bodies produce knackered minds. Knackered minds can’t be productive on sites and in offices. Knackered minds mess destinies up. Knackered minds dull the edges of prosperity of nations and organisations.
By now I think you’re getting the drift of the whole narrative.
What about friends, you’ll say?
Let’s take a typical employee.
Due to the pressure experienced within organisations that put employees on the overdrive to meet demands and raise profitability, the weekends are seen as days to let down and indulge. Alcohol ranks first as the substance, the users often leaning into abuse. An investigation shows that employees are the ones who drag other employees to such joints and engage in drinking contests of sorts. The body bears the brunt and adversity is drawn near. Conversely, great friends are also the ones who point us to the paths that brim with goodies.
Let’s consider a few sentences below.
“I just don’t have time!”
“I wish there were more than 24 hours per day.”
“My girlfriend is complaining so much that I don’t have time to spend with her. I’m scared.”
“My job consumes all my time. I don’t even have time for my family anymore.”
Those sentences are very common in our society. They inhabit the walls of organisations. They are whispered by religious leaders burdened by the responsibility of herding the flock.
The intercourse between time and productivity gives a lot of folks the creeps, especially in a world that’s so fast-paced that a technological innovation could bring down a business in 24 hours.
