“Free to Focus” by Michael Hyatt:
If you fall victim to this limiting belief, replace it with this liberating truth: Productivity is a skill I can develop.
There are some skills we know take some practice to build up. There’s a clear progression or some indication you’ve learned something new. You’re learning to program and now you’re able to build something that would’ve seemed impossible a few months ago.
Productivity sometimes seems god-given or, if not, we can be less patient with the timeline required. The time saving hack should be working right away. I should be able to do my 4 pomodoros then take the long break in exactly 2 hours as prescribed.
Focus takes practice. And practice takes time.
