minimalism and productivity
Be more productive with minimalism: Over the years minimalism has crept into areas of my life that at first glance I did not think had any direct relationship. Little by little I came to understand that my lifestyle had evolved in general: my way of thinking, the way I relate to objects, people and also the way I organize my life.
When you get rid of all the noise around you the objectives become clearer. The little parrot on your head becomes kinder to you, becomes your ally. when i talk about noise I mean disorder. the disorder of material things, mental disorder that makes you not focus enough on something, that you do not have perseverance and leave everything halfway.
That happened to me: I wanted to do so many things that in the end I did nothing at all. Well today I'm still a bit like that but now, what's the difference? Try to finish each project, course or objective that I set myself. How? Organizing my time as best as possible and stop procrastinating (what a horror of words!) stop putting things off for later, focusing on what is important and taking small steps towards my goal.
Minimalism and productivity are closely related. With minimalism you clean your space to be more productive, with minimalism you focus better on one thing and productivity increases. The difference is considerable and the feeling is so….. nice? Pleasant…
Apply minimalism to be more organized
If you still do not know what minimalism is, in this blog you will get sick of hearing that word. All the time. You have an introduction to both minimalism and digital minimalism:
Now I'm going to give you a few Keys for you to apply minimalism and be more productive:
- Clean and organize your workspace
Whether you work at home or in an office. Make sure that your workspace, where you spend many hours a day, be a clear place where you can work quietly.
Sorted papers, post-its with meaning and if it is possible that the surfaces are clear, better than better. Working in an orderly place is the first step to being more focused and therefore more productive.
- Ask yourself questions. All the time.
What is the most important thing you should be doing right now?
Minimalism has a lot to do with where you focus, what you focus on and if what you are doing is useful for what you want to achieve.
I recommend you read this post about the book Essentialism, Notes from the bestseller Essentialism, which I mention below and that I am sure will help you to organize yourself better.
- Todo list. Agenda or piece of paper. Whatever.
Try to make a task list with the activities you must perform to reach your final task.
Must be a to do list well structured, basically it is to divide a much bigger task or end goal into smaller chunks to make it easier.
For this purpose I use the Asana app where you can do your projects and divide them into smaller and clearer tasks.
- Value your time.
When you see your time threatened by an unimportant meeting or an irrelevant favor, remember the value of your time.
Time well spent = goals well accomplished. Think things through before saying yes and organize your work time so that it is not affected very often.
- Spend enough time on your goals
You are working for yourself, for something of yours that will make you live better. Try to be friendlier to your targets and give them the time they need. Everything in this life requires dedication so you better reserve a space for your goals.
Now that I'm working for someone else and I have a self-employed project in mind, reading these types of phrases helps me take a small amount of time every day to dedicate to my personal goal. Although I know for a little while, something is something.
As a we can't do many things at once it is best to follow a small path called focus. If you are going to write a book, focus on it and stop thinking about thousands of things that are useless right now. Better to finish one thing very well than 6 moderately well.
In this sense, I have had to chat a little with my absent-minded self and learn to focus. Although on many occasions I do not succeed, I have taken great steps and The first point has helped me a lot: Finding an organized work space that invites me to do what I have to do.
If you are a bit ruthless, try to find a way to find that place where you can work more focused and with fewer distractions.

2 The four-hour work week
Before finishing the post I would like to say one thing: people are not machines so being productive is always impossible. Productivity is important. Rest is important. Leisure is important. And not being productive sometimes is vital to clear our mind. Learn to see the difference and don't pretend to be a productivity machine. Find a healthy balance between productivity and rest.
