Dream Wish: Enhance Your Productivity Exponentially

Dream Wish: Enhance Your Productivity Exponentially

Allow me to take ten minutes of your time. This ten minutes can enhance your productivity beyond anything you have ever dreamt of.

Life Is Unbalanced

Imagine standing in a queue. You get behind the line and you wait for your turn. You think you will get what you deserve when your turn comes. What else can you do? You just wait for the queue to move.

And Zoooooom!!!

Someone whizzes past you like a freak flash-wave and gets ahead of the game! You could barely see him going! And while everyone else is still standing in line, wondering what just happened, that guy has reached straight for the bounty, grabbed it, and is off for the next.

Some people are like that. They never had to wait in line and never cared for it much. They simply showed up and started winning.

Are they just lucky? Maybe not.

The Dream Wish Concept

Going for an exam? Getting dressed up for an interview? Going out to meet your dream date? Preparing to leave for the seminar which will shape your future?

Here’s the miracle secret to enhance your productivity infinitely today!

Dream wish is one of those lesser-known secrets held under the sleeves of high achievers. It can shoot you straight up in the run for success. It is as simple as it sounds and just as amazing!

In my personal and professional life I have tried this out several times, and let me tell you, it works like a charm!

If you are in for something big today, try the Dream wish concept. Have complete faith in it and see how the magic unfolds.

????????????????????????????????????

    What You Need To Do

    You will need about 10 minutes of quiet time.

    Step 1 – Relax

    Find yourself a quiet room. Sit in a comfortable chair and relax your body. Take a few deep breaths and with each breath relax more and more.

    If you need some help with the relaxation, give yourself a countdown from ten to one, telling yourself “I am relaxing with each count.”

    Ten….relax….nine…relax…eight…relax… and so on until you reach one.

    Such a back-count will also take your mind off the immediate task at hand and help you let go of any tension you might have inside.

    Step 2 – The Dream

    Now, when you are in a completely relaxed, tranquil state, imagine watching yourself from a distance. Think about the task you are about to do and watch yourself doing it.

    See yourself being extremely peaceful while carrying out the task. And watch yourself achieve the best. You are very happy to have succeeded and you feel really good about it. Make this as vivid as possible. Feel the joy of the win!

    If you are up for an interview, watch yourself dynamic and bright in the interview room, shaking the hands of the interviewer with enthusiasm and a smile. Watch how he reciprocates. Watch his demeanour and see how pleased he is to see you. Make the visual as vivid as you possibly can.

    Feel the joy which you get when you walk out of that room, knowing that regardless of how many candidates there are that day, you got the job!

    If you are going to meet your dream girl today, imagine her to be extremely friendly and cozy, imagine laughing loudly with her and having a great evening! Imagine the look of warmth in her eyes and imagine how she is interested in you the first time she lays eyes on you.

    Imagine and feel the emotions which you would really feel – be it love, happiness, or a sense of achievement. Let that emotion make you happy.

    Step 3 – Emerge

    When you feel good and relaxed to have won the game already, start coming back slowly to the rest of the world.

    Count again, this time from one to five, telling yourself that with each count you are a little more awake.

    One…two…three…waking up…four…almost awake…five. Fully alert and feeling great!

    Step 4 – Just go for it!

    You are now all set to win!

    Be the same happy person who emerged from the trance a while back and lead yourself up to the event — to the interview room or the podium, whatever the case may be — feeling great!

    Advertising

    Feel like a winner! You may have a hundred people competing for that spot, but that does not matter. Only you have what is required.

    Watch what happens now. I think you are in for a miracle.

    Enhance Your Productivity And Experience Serendipity

    No, I will not tell you why this works. Sometimes, the magic works only if its secret does not unfold.

    Whenever you are chasing a big achievement, try the Dream wish concept. Have complete faith in it. Faith can enhance your productivity beyond what logic can dream of.

    Just believe in it — it will work!

    As the Master of an Ocean liner, mine is a high-performing job. We have to prove ourselves every day. The Dream wish concept has never failed me. It will take you ahead of your competition by leaps and bounds.

    Enhance your productivity

      Think about it: Do you still want to stand in the queue? Or whizz past?

      How Not to Feel Overwhelmed at Work & Take Control of Your Day

      How Not to Feel Overwhelmed at Work & Take Control of Your Day

      Overwhelm is a pernicious state largely caused by the ever-increasing demands on our time and the distractions that exist all around us. It creeps up on us and can, in its extreme form, leave us feeling anxious, stressed and exhausted.

      If you’re feeling overwhelmed at work, here are 6 strategies you can follow that will reduce the feeling of overwhelm; leaving you calmer, in control and a lot less stressed.

      1. Write Everything down to Offload Your Mind

      The first thing you can do when you begin to feel overwhelmed is to write everything down that is on your mind.

      Often people just write down all the things they think they have to do. This does help, but a more effective way to reduce overwhelm is to also write down everything that’s on your mind.

      For example, you may have had an argument with your colleague or a loved one. If it’s on your mind write it down. A good way to do this is to draw a line down the middle of the page and title one section “things to do” and the other “what’s on my mind”.

      The act of writing all this down and getting it out of your head will begin the process of removing your feeling of overwhelm. Writing things down can really change your life.

      2. Decide How Long It Will Take to Complete Your To-Dos

      Once you have ‘emptied your head,’ go through your list and estimate how long it will take to complete each to-do.

      Advertising

      As you go through your list, you will find quite a few to-dos will only take you five or ten minutes. Others will take longer, often up to several hours.

      Do not worry about that at this stage. Just focus on estimating how long you will need to complete each task to the best of your ability. Here’s How to Cultivate a More Meaningful To Do List.

      3. Take Advantage of Parkinson’s Law

      Now here’s a little trick I learned a long time ago. Parkinson’s Law states that work will fill the time you have available to complete it, and us humans are terrible at estimating how long something will take:((Odhable: Genesis of Parkinson’s Law))

        This is why many people are always late. They think it will only take them thirty minutes to drive across town when previous experience has taught them it usually takes forty-five minutes to do so because traffic is often bad but they stick to the belief it will only take thirty minutes. It’s more wishful thinking than good judgment.

        We can use Parkinson’s Law to our advantage. If you have estimated that to write five emails that desperately need a reply to be ninety minutes, then reduce it down to one hour. Likewise, if you have estimated it will take you three hours to prepare your upcoming presentation, reduce it down to two hours.

        Reducing the time you estimate something will take gives you two advantages. The first is you get your work done quicker, obviously. The second is you put yourself under a little time pressure and in doing so you reduce the likelihood you will be distracted or allow yourself to procrastinate.

        Advertising

        When we overestimate how long something will take, subconsciously our brains know we have plenty of time and so it plays tricks on us and we end up checking reviews of the Apple Watch 4 or allow our colleagues to interrupt us with the latest office gossip.

        Applying a little time pressure prevents this from happening and we get more focused and more work done.

        4. Use the Power of Your Calendar

        Once you have your time estimates done, open up your calendar and schedule your to-dos. Go through your to-dos and schedule time on your calendar for doing those tasks. Group tasks up into similar tasks.

        For emails that need attention on your to-do list, schedule time on your calendar to deal with all your emails at once. Likewise, if you have a report to write or a presentation to prepare, add these to your calendar using your estimated time as a guide for how long each will take.

        Seeing these items on your calendar eases your mind because you know you have allocated time to get them done and you no longer feel you have no time. Grouping similar tasks together keeps you in a focused state longer and it’s amazing how much work you get done when you do this.

        5. Make Decisions

        For those things you wrote down that are on your mind but are not tasks, make a decision about what you will do with each one. These things are on your mind because you have not made a decision about them.

        If you have an issue with a colleague, a friend or a loved one, take a little time to think about what would be the best way to resolve the problem. More often than not just talking with the person involved will clear the air and resolve the problem.

        Advertising

        If it is a more serious issue, then decide how best to deal with it. Talk to your boss, a colleague and get advice.

        Whatever you do, do not allow it to fester. Ignoring the problem will not make it go away. You need to make a decision to deal with it and the sooner you do so the sooner the problem will be resolved. (You can take a look at this guide on How To Make Good Decisions All The Time.)

        I remember long ago, when I was in my early twenties and had gone mad with my newly acquired credit cards. I discovered I didn’t have the money to pay my monthly bills. I worried about it for days, got stressed and really didn’t know what to do. Eventually, I told a good friend of mine of the problem. He suggested I called the credit card company to explain my problem. The next day, I plucked up the courage to call the company, explained my problem and the wonderful person the other end listened and then suggested I paid a smaller amount for a couple of months.

        This one phone call took no more than ten minutes to make, yet it solved my problem and took away a lot of the stress I was feeling at the time. I learned two very valuable lessons from that experience:

        The first, don’t go mad with newly acquired credit cards! And the second, there’s always a solution to every problem if you just talk to the right person.

        6. Take Some Form of Action

        Because overwhelm is something that creeps up on us, once we feel overwhelmed (and stressed as the two often go together), the key is to take some form of action.

        The act of writing everything down that is bothering you and causing you to feel overwhelmed is a great place to start. Being able to see what it is that is bothering you in a list form, no matter how long that list is, eases the mind. You have externalized it.

        Advertising

        It also means rather than these worries floating around in a jumbled mess inside your head, they are now visible and you can make decisions easier about what to do about them. Often it could be asking a colleague for a little help, or it could be you see you need to allocate some focused time to get the work done. The important thing is you make a decision on what to do next.

        Overwhelm is not always caused by a feeling of having a lack of time or too much work, it can also be caused by avoiding a decision about what to do next.

        The Bottom Line

        Make a decision, even if it is to just talk to someone about what to do next. Making a decision about how you will resolve something on its own will reduce your feelings of overwhelm and start you down the path to a resolution one way or another.

        When you follow these strategies to can say goodbye to your overwhelm and gain much more control over your day.
