Multitasking Worse Than Sleeplessness, But Power Hour Focuses Productivity
Forbes contributor Vanessa Loder, founder and CEO of Lean In, suggests performing a "power hour" of productivity, working in short blocks of time followed by periods of rest to maximize productivity. To perform a "power hour":
1. Reserve between 75 and 90 minutes during the part of the day in which you feel most productive, and locate your to-do list.
2. Get rid of potential distractions, including email, phone and any other tools or devices that could vie for your attention.
3. Spend 20 uninterrupted minutes on the most important to-do list item. Use only applications or tools vital to the activity.
4. Take a two minute break.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4.
6. Repeat step 3.
7. Take a 10 minute to 15 minute break completely unrelated to work.
