Here’s something interesting that most people don’t know:
Each of us has a specific two-hour window every day when – thanks to certain physiological processes – we’re naturally TWICE as productive as normal. Not only that, but our cognition is sharper, too.
Remember the last time you were in the zone? Chances are, it was during this two-hour window.
I know my peak time starts around 11am, I need some time to get settled into the day and then I’m ready to get down to work.
Knowing when you’re at your peak performance can help you in so many ways. You know precisely when to do your most important work. Better yet, you could set an alarm and wait for it to ring before diving into tasks that are essential for getting ahead.
Why? Because then, without even trying and tapping into your personal productivity style, you’d perform at a higher level and, ultimately, do a better job. You’d finish faster, leave work earlier, and arrive home with more energy at the end of the day.
This two-hour window occurs at a different hour for each of us.
It’s hardwired into our neurology.
The good news is, I know someone who’s figured out a way for you to discover when this two-hour turbo-boost happens for you.
His name is Dr. Ron Friedman.
(You might remember him – he organized the Peak Work Performance Summit.)
Ron has put together a 60-second quiz that tells you exactly when your two-hour window of peak performance occurs. Just answer the questions, and his algorithm will crunch the data.
