We are planning to roll up group sessions with more than 1-1 sessions on MyFocusSpace, but before that, we want to validate the concept with you.

To do this, we are organizing a zoom event on, Wednesday, the 28th of July at 6 PM GMT+2 where you will have the chance to work on your side hustle and meet the rest of the MFS community:

The agenda for the event:

5:50 - Join the event

6:00 - 6:15 - Intro into new research about productivity / Post Pandemic Productivity

6:15 - 6:20 - Round-robin table where each of us shares their task

6:20 - 7:20 - Deep work

7:20 - 7:30 - Celebrate our success and exchange ideas

So, please join us, and let's get some work done together.

Once you sign-up we will send you the zoom link invite.


🎯Today's Focus Tip: Listen to your body

Although sometimes we forget, we are not machines. We can’t produce 24/7 non-stop in a predictable and profitable way. We have our physical and mental limits. Exceeding these limits can result in unnecessary mistakes, forgetting important things—and even a mental breakdown. Actually, we lose about 20% of productivity (20% fewer results) just by working when tired and overworked. So, how can we understand our limits?

Dr. Andrew Huberman, an American neuroscientist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, describes how the organs of the body influence the function and health of our brain and how our brain controls our bodily organs.

📕 The ebook that will help you understand the neuroscience of procrastination

A few ideas from the book:

  1. Many people think that procrastination is due to lazy habits or just plain incompetence, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. Procrastination actually finds its roots in our biology. It’s the result of a constant battle in our brain between the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex.
  2. How to be kind to your future self:
    1. Do the worst thing first.
    2. Create smaller chunks.
    3. Try the 10-minute trick.
    4. Work in public.
    5. Give yourself a reward.
  3. How to diagnose demotivation. The beauty of the 3C model of motivation lies in its simplicity. By asking yourself three simple questions, you can analyse the reasons why you struggle to feel motivated.
    1. Head: “Is this task really important to me and relevant to my goal?”
    2. Heart: “Do I enjoy this task?”
    3. Hand: “Am I good at this task?”
