Want to be Productive?

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

In an interview with Richard Branson (the 212th richest person and founder of the virgin group) , someone asked him “How do you become more productive?” Mr. Branson sat back and throught for a second. Then broke the silence with “Work Out”. He was serious and elaborated: working out gave him at least four additional hours of productive time every day.

Initially I was surprised when I read this. Can working out really increase productivity?

So, I tried it. For the past few weeks, I have been regularly working out for about 20 – 30 minutes. To my surprise, I have felt much more energized. I have also found that my overall attitude is much more positive.

I used to force myself to focus and accomplish tasks for the day. I feel a remarkable difference in how I engage in a day and I do believe that adding a 20 – 30 min workout each day has significantly added to my productivity.

Let me know things you have done to increase your productivity.
