In this article we will point out some not so obvious reasons that will make you more effective. We don't want to confuse you, we just want to present you some unconventional psychological facts about how you can increase your productivity. It's up to you to decide what works for you and your business.
1. Distraction can be helpful
Distraction is usually perceived as a killer of productivity. For example, many articles cite social media as the main reason for poor employee performance. Negative statistics even lead to the banning of social networks in the workplace. But should you take such a measure? The answer is no.
According to studies, if the use of social networks is reasonable, it does not harm productivity. Moreover, small breaks spent on social networks help employees to relax and continue their working day more fully.
2. Fantasizing does not interfere with productivity
We have all heard the saying, "A man is as big as his dreams." Dreams can be very useful and help us plan our future actions. But if we fantasize too much, we can lose touch with reality. Therefore, when you dream, try to direct your thoughts in a productive direction by making plans, solving challenges or anticipating actions.
3. Sometimes self-deception helps
Positive self-deception can help you reach your full potential. It will build in your mind a positive image of yourself, and will help you move towards your desired goal.
4. Anger is not always a bad advisor
Do you know why caffeine is so addictive, especially for people who want to be productive all day? It stimulates the production of adrenaline, which significantly increases productivity.
Like caffeine, anger can improve productivity. When we are angry, our bodies produce adrenaline, which, if properly channeled, can help us perform our tasks more efficiently.
The next time you are angry, turn it into positive energy. But always keep in mind that like caffeine overdose, too much anger can have the opposite effect.
