Problem:

Vague objectives cause us to procrastinate.

Solution:

Define specific, actionable and easily reachable short term objectives.

Problem:

Nobody can work at peak performance for sustained periods of time.

Solution:

Work in short 20-30 minutes bursts and take a short break in between.

Problem:

I feel guilty about taking breaks because they risk turning into unproductive days.

Solution:

Earn your break by working with 100% concentration, then take a timed break.

Problem:

When I come back from a break, it takes me a lot of time to get back into the task.

Solution:

Before going on your break, leave yourself some “breadcrumbs” to make it easier to get started again.

Problem:

I still feel that even timed breaks are a waste of my time.

Solution:

You shouldn't because breaks allow the intuitive pattern-matching side of your brain to catch up with what you’ve done and avoid tunnel vision.

Problem:

Can I really truly not do anything productive during a break?

Solution:

Try the “priming” feature that allows your subconscious to get started on the task while you’re still sipping coffee.

Problem:

When I’m in the zone, I don’t want to be forced to take a break as I might not be able to get back into the problem.

Solution:

Don’t stop! It’s very hard to get into zone, so just extend your time slice until you’re dropping out of the zone naturally.

Problem:

Sometimes I find it really easy to concentrate and I get lots done; other days I can’t get anything done.

Solution:

Learn about your personal rhythms. Let Vitamin-R help you by logging and analyzing your concentration levels.

Problem:

Some days of the week are just more productive for me than others.

Solution:

Use Vitamin-R’s built-in Day-of-the-Week statistics to find which days are most productive. Schedule challenging and rote work accordingly.

Problem:

Some parts of the day are just more productive for me than others.

Solution:

Use Vitamin-R’s built-in Time-of-the-Day statistics to schedule your task to best match your own natural rhythm.

Problem:

I find it super hard to get started on large projects.

Solution:

Just work 5 minutes on the easiest related task to get going.

Problem:

I find it hard to maintain motivation throughout the day.

Solution:

Working in short bursts with specific and actionable objectives provides you with a continuous stream of mini-success keeping motivation high.
