It’s not that I don’t like people, but . . .

I sure get a LOT done on those days most other people are taking the day off.

My plan for the week was to stay focused with my normal FLOW Monday-Thursday . . . and clean up of my accumulated messes today – Good Friday!

Such a fabulous plan that was. Knowing this would be 4 days instead 5 for FLOW, I was super intentional all week and accomplished all goals for the week.

This morning felt great because my work for the week was completed before the day started. I arrived in the office at 7:00 AM and dived into the project I’d been avoiding for weeks thinking that I would be lucky to make any reasonable dent in unraveling the fiasco, but I had hope.

3 hours later, I COMPLETED all of the work that needed to be done!

The magic ingredient?

Not a single interruption by any other human . . . 3 hours of pure focus.

Here’s the kicker!

ANYONE can experience this phenomenon any and all days of the week . . . even YOU!

Most people won’t because they’re more about what they can’t do rather what they CAN do!

Imagine the possibilities that might emerge if you were to have 3 hours of hyper-productivity at the start of every working day.

You can do this with just a few necessary adjustments to your routine.

  • Schedule it as an appointment (Time Block)
  • Alert all of your peeps who are accustomed to popping into your office at a whim that’s no longer a thing during that block of time.
  • Show up! (on time)
  • Do NOT open email or Facebook
  • Make this a habit
