Sir Isaac Newton was an amazing scientific theorist — so amazing, in fact, that he doubled as a productivity expert. His ‘3 Laws of Motion’ can be used as surprisingly accurate analogies to unlocking your productive side, says blogger and entrepreneur James Clear in his blog post The Physics of Productivity: Newton’s Laws of Getting Stuff Done. With helpful diagrams, Clear explains how Newton’s laws of motion also apply to productivity and how to use these similarities to unlock your potential and get things done.
“1. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. Find a way to get started in less than 2 minutes.”
“2. It’s not just about working hard, it’s also about working on the right things. You have a limited amount of force and where you apply it matters.”
“3. Your productivity is a balance of opposing forces. If you want to be more productive, you can either power through the barriers or remove the opposing forces. The second option seems to be less stressful.”
