Could you imagine wearing the same exact shirt, pair of pants, and shoes every single day? What about eating the same exact breakfast every morning? Entrepreneur Scott Ginsberg said a consistent routine every single day has made a huge impact on his productivity.
“It’s all about the economy of effort,” Ginsberg said.
“If you can outsource all these stupidly mundane tasks to a routine, your brain is free to focus on the products you are creating, talking to your clients, or this interview, for example. I am able to focus because I dumped all my dumb thoughts during yoga.”
The decision to adhere to a mindless routine puts the entrepreneur on autopilot, and also serves as a means of reducing stress in making decisions where they aren’t as fruitful.
“It is sort of like a David Allen Getting Things Done thing,” he said. “It relieves your brain of the necessity of remembering.”
