Write productivity hacks
I released my first book last week, "Marissa Mayer and the Battle for Yahoo! I am often asked how long it took to write the book. In May 2014 I took a vacation and presented my first design in mid-August 2014.
However, I did sign my book deal in September 2013, so the response may be a year. So if the issue is, how long was it between my first and last set? It is 93,000 words long, so I averaged 2,447 words a dai.
That' This is for folks, so I thought it might be useful to split some productiveness hocks I've detected during typing. So I went to sleep and got up at the same rate every morning for six whole wards. I' d lie down for up to an hours.
I then walked into a neighboring garden and meditated on a bank for 10 mins. And then I went home and got to work. I came back to my desktop around 8:30 or so and adjusted a clock for an hours time. Once the timers began, I forced myself to either write or just gaze at the monitor until the lesson was over.
I would stop the time if I had to make a cup of hot water or go to the toilet. Then when the lesson was over, I got up from my desktop, went outside and walked around a part of town - and left my iPhone behind. And then I came back to my office and wrote another lesson and stared.
Another stroll, then. I' ll be back in an additional minute. I then had an one and a half hours dinner, during which I went to a local pub, ate and then went to a nearby plant. I guess only, but I think this worked for me because an entire lesson is not a very long period of work and it always felt like a genuine pause was just around the bend - and then dinner or the end of the workday.
Sometimes, when I was working, I met a fiddly part, became very frightened and wanted to make myself WRITE NOW. And I thought it might have been helpful in my typing to move my brains. I' d begin every lesson to revise the last section I have written. I' m not getting writer's inhibition, but I' m starting the morning with a lazy head.
Helping me return to the last section I was writing and revising it. When I had reached the end of my work, I was back in the river. I' ve trained at least three days a week - outside. Usually I was ready at 5:30am, and it was sommer, so I was spending a great deal of my bicycle riding up and down in Central Park.
During my book vacation, however, I realized that a night drinking would already strongly decelerate me the next mornings. It' s too difficult to get in here, but the other thing I could write so quickly was that I had an outlines of over 30,000 words. In an article I posted a few month ago, you can read all about this trial.
