Not that’s not the end of this post. In fact, this is just the beginning. You are probably wondering why I said “done”. I did it to power up my productivity, at least that is what I’m told it does.
According to Fast Company, saying the word ‘done’ can help you get more accomplished.
Leslie Sherlin , a psychologist, neuroperformance specialist, and the co-founder of the brain-training company SenseLabs, says that when we say we are done with something “the electrical activity in our brain shifts from being activated and engaged into a more relaxed state.”
At the same time our body releases serotonin(the “feel-good” chemical), creating a sense of calmness and satisfaction. This new state will then allow us to take on the next step or challenge while at the same time building our confidence.
So how do we create these opportunities to say ‘done’? Here are 4 ways:
1. Break tasks into smaller chunks
2. Work in 10-minute segments
3. Visualize yourself completing the task
4. Take micro-breaks
