Introducing Goals

Elisi has been a great tool for all of us at the Elisi team. We use Elisi to manage our daily lives, and to work on to-do lists and our hobby projects. On a big screen, Elisi really helps by putting everything in front of our eyes, so we can make organize things better, and track progress with confidence. 

Then the question arose: how would it be if Elisi could show all the items related to a single goal, and hide everything else? 

Say you are working on a bike project. Your goal is to build a bike from scratch. What if Elisi could act like a project board? Notes would show only notes about your bike design, lists would show only the lists related to your bike build, and planner would show only your bike-related to-dos on your weekly view.

And wouldn’t it also be nice if you could have multiple goals, such as work, life, bike, and kids, and Elisi were able to switch quickly between them? 

Well, that’s exactly what we’ve been developing. Today we are introducing Goals. With goals, Elisi becomes the project board that lets you focus on one objective, with the help of all existing Elisi modules. 

To start using Elisi goals, click or tap on the week number display, then select “Enter goal mode”. The rest of the process should be pretty straightforward: anything created in goal mode will belong to the goal. You reassign goals from each item’s details page. 

Please give the goal mode a try and let us know what you think.

4 Self-Management Skills You Can Easily Incorporate Into Your Life

Remember when you were a child and you thought that when you grew up, you’d be able to do whatever you wanted? How wrong we all were.

For many of us, it’s harder to achieve goals as adults because no one is pushing us. That is, until we learn the self-management skills that let us push ourselves.

Self-Management Skills Everyone Can Use

One of the few guarantees in life is that you will lose motivation every now and then. Keep yourself on track with these self-management techniques.

1. Creating Accountability Systems
Everyone talks about setting clear goals and writing them down. As important as that is, it’s rarely the only thing we need to keep us moving.

Hold yourself accountable for each task. For some people, positive reinforcement works best, so set rewards you can earn. For instance, if you complete this task today, you can watch the new episode of your favorite TV show.

Other people are more motivated by negative consequences. You might tell yourself that if you don’t complete that task, you have to deep-clean your refrigerator.

Use trial and error to find the rewards or consequences that motivate you best. Above all, track them in your planner and follow through with them.

2. Crafting Success-Based Routines
Sometimes we have big goals but we never start the little steps it takes to achieve them. This especially true if we’re working toward multiple goals at the same time.

Set up a daily routine that includes steps toward each of your goals. This might include an exercise regimen, reaching out to business contacts, organizing one area of your home each day, and more.

When you have that routine, keep track and hold yourself accountable. A bullet journal is a simple way to see your progress.

3. Managing Stress
As important as motivation is, you can’t solve all of life’s problems by working harder. In fact, pushing yourself too hard and burning out will do more harm than good in the long run.

Make your mental health a priority and include stress management in your daily routine.

There are plenty of helpful options: meditation, exercise, aromatherapy, bubble baths, reading a book, or playing a video game to name a few. Find out what works and make time for it.

4. Being Selectively Social
Self-management isn’t just about you. None of us exist in a vacuum, so the people you surround yourself with will impact your success too.

Keep this in mind as you look around your social group. If there are people in your life who push you to do things that go against your goals, take a step back.

Try making friends with people who have similar goals. This could include your co-workers or other people in your industry. If weight loss or fitness is a key goal for you, get social with other people at your gym.

Being Your Own Boss

Whether you’re your own employer or you just need to hold yourself accountable for your outside goals, self-management is no easy task. In many ways, it’s easier to motivate others than it is to motivate ourselves.

If you’re struggling, the self-management skills above can help you get out of your own way and get on the road to success.

Why is Meditation Good for You? 7 Benefits You Will Find From Meditation

Do you deal with brain fog? Trouble focusing? You may need to add meditation to your daily routine.

If you’re asking yourself “why is meditation good for you”, then you need to check out this list of seven benefits you’ll enjoy once you start meditation.

1. Helps Achieve Goals

Wondering why meditation is good for you? For starters, it can help you achieve your goals. Whether they be personal or professional goals, adding meditation to your daily routine can improve brain function.

When brain function improves, so do the levels of brain integration. This increases your attention and allows you to be better at problem-solving, so you can better achieve your goals and be more productive.

2. Increase Your Creativity

Do you deal with writer’s block or loss of creativity? Meditation can help. If your mind is full of chatter and chaos, you’re not able to create.

When you meditate, you’re able to quiet all the chatter. This allows for incredible content and ideas to flow more freely.

3. Serves as a Memory Booster

Do you struggle with remembering things? Are you constantly making notes and keeping reminders on your phone? Give meditation a try.

Meditation can improve your memory by clearing your mind of the mumbo jumbo.

4. Pain Reduction

Wondering why you should meditate? If you deal with physical pain, you can benefit from meditation. Meditation and mindfulness can greatly decrease the pain levels in people with chronic pain.

By enhancing emotional and cognitive control, an individual can experience less pain as a result of using meditative practices.

5. Helps with Depression

If you struggle with depression, you should give meditation a try. Why does meditation work for depression? Deep breathing and clearing the mind can decrease depression.

When you regularly practice meditation, you increase your control over how your brain processes. This can help you better recognize negative thoughts and triggers so that you can work through them easier.

6. Reduce Stress

Do you struggle with stress and anxiety? Just like meditation helps with depression, it can also alleviate stress and anxiety. Meditation can lessen the release of cortisol, the stress hormone that affects your entire body.

Deep breathing exercises help calm your mind so you can deal with stressors in a more productive way.

7. Get More Beauty Sleep

Looking for more reasons to meditate? If you struggle with getting a good night’s sleep, meditation could be the answer you’re looking for. Meditation helps to calm your brain and clear your mind of the racing thoughts that keep you from getting your beauty sleep.

Personal Time-management System 7: Improving Focus and Concentration (3/3)

By Ryan Douglas

3.Exercise

Another cornerstone of brain power and good health. The impact of exercise on focus and concentration may not be as apparent as food. However, the resulting increase in energy levels and stamina are palpable.

Exercise also releases dopamine- which has been proven to increase happiness and confidence. And when you’re confident in yourself, it shows in your efforts.

You’re more apt to produce quality work that you’re proud of. You take chances and become more spontaneous. People who exercise take risks that they might not have otherwise. Which leads to even more confidence, increased abilities, and a stronger belief in what you’re capable of.

Elisi can help here as well.

Utilizing the built-in habit tracking function, it’s easy to log your workouts and move towards your fitness goals. Once configured, the Elisi app automatically calculates your progress. As your active streak trends upward, it becomes a habit that you don’t want to break.

4.Quality Sleep

A severely underrated tactic for improving focus and concentration. Research shows that sleep improves almost every single process in the human body.

Which seems strange considering that modern society views sleep deprivation as a badge of honor. Many think hustling, grinding, or being relentless is the only way to get ahead. Yet, that’s simply not true.

Studies confirm sleep has a pronounced impact on memory and learning and helps us achieve peak performance. Some mistakenly believe caffeine or other stimulants can make up for bad sleep habits, but that’s not the case.

There is no substitute for getting good sleep each night.

So, go ahead. Turn off your electronics, read for a few minutes, and then power down for the night. In the morning, you’ll find yourself more refreshed, alert, and focused on the tasks ahead.

Focusing Training

Aside from the techniques and tactics previously mentioned, it helps to remember that better focus and concentration are skills that anyone can develop. But it does take desire, intention, and consistency to experience results.

1.Mental Exercise

In many ways, training your mind is like training your body. What seems difficult at first tends to get easier with time. Establishing your routine comes first but sticking with it each day is what facilitates progress.

Because as you continue training your mental strength improves. You’re able to focus and concentrate for longer periods of time. Your tasks get done faster. And you produce higher-quality work to show for it.

A good analogy is thinking about the propeller on an airplane. It takes tremendous force to complete the first few revolutions. Yet, once you start generating momentum, each successful revolution requires less effort.

Your focus might be weak right now. But with regular practice, it will get better.

2.Stumbling Blocks

We’re all human and human beings possess a finite amount of willpower. We can focus for only so long before we exhaust ourselves. And, as much as we try and fight it, humans give in to temptation.

The key is to recognize this process for what it is – part of life. Things come up, family members get sick, and well, sometimes, we just don’t want to do the work.

And that’s okay.

Rarely does anyone have a successful outcome on the first (or even the 10th) try of anything. It takes countless iterations to strike the right balance and achieve our goals.

But in the meantime, we have to be like Elsa and “let it go.”

3.Forgive Yourself

The final step in improving mental clarity. If you do lose momentum and veer off course sometimes, don’t beat yourself up over it. Just gently right the ship and bring yourself back on track.

A slip-up doesn’t mean abandoning your goals, losing faith, or punishing yourself forever. Give yourself permission to fail and vow to try again. Learn from your mistakes, figure out what you can do differently next time, and take it from there.

Conclusion

In the end, improving focus and concentration is more of a marathon than a sprint. Each daily practice builds upon itself to create a larger, more meaningful end result.

Techniques like pomodoro sprints, scheduled time blocks, and distraction-free environments can help. However, sustainable improvement also requires a holistic approach.

For instance, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine. Meditating, relaxing, and getting a good night’s sleep. Along with being kind to yourself and practicing forgiveness when you hit those inevitable stumbles.

Tools like Elisi make the entire process easier. Offloading thoughts and organizing ideas in your digital bullet journal frees up mental space, reduces stress, and allows you to be more productive.

And isn’t that what we’re all trying to achieve?

Keyboard Shortcuts

Hello Elisi users!

We recently introduced keyboard shortcuts to Elisi. With keyboard shortcuts you can easily add planner items, check off habits, add the number of glasses of water you have had, or even add notes. Keyboard shortcuts works on most platforms with a keyboard attached.

One objective we had when designing it was to have predictable shortcuts; we wanted the key combinations for common tasks to stay the same. This way, you can memorize the shortcuts without always relying on on-screen tips.

The other objectives were to have a system that’s as self-explanatory as possible, and to have a shortcut system that covers most common actions. In order to fulfill these objectives, we went through several internal iterations of shortcut design, and settled on the one that made the most sense.

To start using keyboard shortcuts, simply press the command/control key. The UI will indicate how to proceed.

We hope keyboard shortcuts will help you become more efficient with Elisi, and we hope Elisi will help you better live your life.

Personal Time-management System 6: Improving Focus and Concentration (2/3)

3.Eliminating Distractions

Yet another technique that goes hand-in-hand with improving productivity and focus. We live in a world of distractions which can take over our lives (if we let them). Yet, with proper planning, we can strike a balance between modern conveniences and improved focus. Consider the following:

Internet blocking apps – that keep you from accessing the web or social media during focused work periods. Many assume a quick check-in on Twitter or visit to Amazon is no big deal. However, the next thing you know you’ve wasted 30 minutes with nothing to show for it.

Blocking the web eliminates a large portion of the distractions we face.

A quiet workspace – it seems obvious, but many fail to recognize the importance of a quiet workspace. A busy coffee shop is great for socializing, but probably not the ideal fit for deep thinking or focused work. Likewise, trying to be creative while partners, roommates, or children are nearby is often difficult.

If you can, retreat to a quiet location to concentrate on your work. If that’s not possible, put on some headphones or (softly) play some music to drown out background noise.

Studies show that classical music works best, but most anything without lyrics will do. As long as whatever you’re listening to doesn’t create more distraction.

Developing a routine – besides being a great way to get in the zone, routines help remove willpower from the equation. Routines signal your brain that it’s time to switch into work mode and get focused.

Routines are unique to each person, but many have common elements. Such as location, time of day, or mindset. Even playing a certain song can signal that it’s time to get going. However, you should limit using these items for your focused work time only.

Otherwise, they lose significance and you end up diluting the process.

Besides focusing techniques, there are also a number of generalized tactics that can be used to improve concentration.

Focusing Tactics

Rather than zeroing in on a specific outcome or goal, focusing tactics are more about general physical and mindset improvements. Each of which you further develop by way of continuous practice.

1.Meditation

An excellent tool to sharpen focus, awareness, and concentration. Those who’ve never meditated often dismiss the idea but scientific research proves that meditation works.

One of the many benefits of meditation is how it trains participants to ignore distractions and focus on what’s happening at the moment.

In fact, the central theme of meditation is completely relaxing your mind. Yet, simultaneously, bringing your thoughts back to a central focus as the brain begins to wander. While this practice can feel incredibly difficult at first, it gets easier as time goes on.

Meditation improves your ability to focus and concentrate throughout daily life.

You’ll notice minor annoyances that used to steal your attention no longer matter. And when you eventually do get pulled off track, it’s easier to regain focus. Meditation also allows you to be calmer and less reactive to the external factors around you.

The value of which (in an increasingly “noisy” world) cannot be overstated.

2.Proper Nutrition

We’ve heard it time and time again, but this advice rings true. What you put into your body directly impacts your mental acuity. Nourishing yourself with high-quality food, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and lots of water significantly increases energy levels.

Meaning you can work longer, faster, and be more efficient in everything that you do.

On the flip side, excessive fat, sugar or processed food has the opposite effect. You feel lethargic, irritable, and often experience brain fog.

A disastrous recipe for harnessing creativity or enhanced mental focus.

Personal Time-management System 5: Improving Focus and Concentration (1/3)

By Ryan Douglas

In our last post, we talked about how to make a weekly plan to accomplish your goals. And while planning is an important part of the process, you won’t accomplish much without execution. This is where many of us get stuck.

When it comes time to do the work, we can’t concentrate or stay focused. We often let our minds wander or allow distractions to interrupt our flow. Instead of feeling good about what we’ve accomplished for the day, the mood is just the opposite. Guilt and anxiety over another squandered opportunity.

It’s naive to think that we can remain productive for hours on end without a break. Just like it’s silly to believe we can eliminate every distraction. However, using strategies to enhance our focus and concentration we can strengthen our mental muscle.

Focusing Techniques

A big part of improving mental focus is having the right systems in place. Ones that make it easy to generate results without relying solely on willpower. Trial and error will identify the ones that work best for you and your environment. However, here are three proven techniques to get you started.

1. Pomodoro Timers

A popular focus method developed in the 1980s. The idea behind this framework is brilliantly simple – working in short, focused bursts to increase productivity without losing focus.

You begin by setting a goal. Whether it be a single task or smaller chunks of a larger one. You then set the timer – normally for about 25 minutes. Once the clock starts, you work on that single task and nothing else.

The key being to avoid interruptions at all costs. You don’t surf the web, make phone calls, or do anything else off-task.

Once time is up, you take a short break – usually around 5 minutes. During the break, you’re free to stretch, meditate, take a walk, or whatever else you might like. So long as it’s unrelated to your project.

Afterward, you repeat the process three more times (for a total of (4) Pomodoro rounds). Following the 4th session, you take a longer break of about 15-30 minutes.

The idea is to let your brain cool off and allow your subconscious to work on other ideas before starting again.

One of the main benefits received is seeing where your focus lies. Each Pomodoro becomes a task in your daily activity log – making it easy to identify where you spend your time and on what activities.

You also learn to ignore interruptions and stay focused on the task at hand.

Not to mention developing better time estimates for similar projects. By tallying related pomodoros, you see the total time required for a specific task’s completion, which serves as a baseline estimate for future projects.

2. Scheduling Block Time for Focused Work

Many say the hardest part of achieving a high level of focus/concentration is finding the time to do it. That’s why scheduling specific times for focused work is so important.

Otherwise, the goals you want to accomplish get eaten up by your day.

Focused work blocks is a central theme in the popular book Make Time by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky. These two productivity experts say it’s important to create “blocks” of time designed for working on your top goals and priorities.

And just like with a doctor’s appointment, workplace meeting, or family gathering you schedule these activities on your calendar. Most importantly, you don’t abandon them when other issues crop up.

Knapp and Zeratsky recommend 90-minute blocks of focused work in their book. They say this is just the right amount of time to get into the “zone”, accomplish something meaningful, and step away before losing focus.

That and 90-minutes is all most of us can set aside before life gets in the way.

The specific time of day for your blocks doesn’t matter. Early morning or late evening are the norms but whatever works for you is fine. The authors say by consistently stringing these mini-sessions together, you will make progress towards your goals.

The Elisi app is a great way to schedule your productivity sessions. Using the built-in calendar, you can easily block out periods of time for your focused work. Combined with our habit tracking tool, you always know how much progress you’ve made toward the finish line.

What should you learn from college?

For many of you, the time during college signifies the apex of your school life. It is when you start to live your life as a real adult, making important decisions about your future and taking responsibility for those decisions. It is also when you start to build up expertise, moving forward in becoming a real professional. However, after being gone from college for years, you may (or better not) be surprised to find that knowledge only takes up a tiny part of your college memory. The crueler fact is that knowledge can “fade away” anytime, especially when your occupation does not have a 100% match with your major. Continue reading What should you learn from college?

Without Driving Yourself Crazy, 5 Easy Ways to Be More Productive

By Elisi Studio

Everyone wants to be more productive, but without having to think about or stress over it too much. Fortunately, there are simple ways to accomplish this goal without giving up everything that you enjoy. Because increased productivity often means doing less instead of more. Here are five ideas to get you started.

1. Focus On A Single Task To Improve Productivity

We all have days that feel like a blur – running here and there checking items off our to-do list. Completing errands and whittling away at our tasks should result in satisfaction. Yet, when looking back on the day’s activities, it can be difficult to figure out what we’ve accomplished.

A lot of people think that being busy equates to higher levels of productivity. However, that’s simply not true.Research shows that multitasking decreases the effectiveness of our work.

The human brain can only focus on one thing at a time.

Multiple interests competing for attention can overload our mental circuits and reduce their capacity. Not to mention the time required for our brains to switch gears from one task to the next. 

Simplifying the process is a much better approach to productivity. Because when you focus on one task at a time, you’re able to devote your full attention and mental bandwidth to it. Creativity flourishes and you’re able to work faster, smarter, and produce better results in the long run.

Apps like Elisi can help. Our intuitive interface makes focusing on a single task at a time easy and prevents you from getting overwhelmed. Displaying just the right amount of detail for each entry keeps you motivated and on track.

2. Turn Off Notifications and Remove Social Media Apps

If you’re having heart palpitations after reading this, rest assured you’re not alone.

Addictions to phones and social media is a real issue nowadays. Although mobile devices are meant to make us more productive, they often create the opposite effect.

Yet, it’s nearly impossible to resist their physiological temptation.

Science shows that responding to alerts and notifications on our phones releases dopamine. A powerful brain chemical that controls behavior and “rewards” us for taking beneficial action. Dopamine also strengthens neural pathways and encourages us to repeat these activities in the future.

Checking for updates creates a kind of Pavlovian effect where our brains are conditioned to respond to this stimulus. Even worse, most social media apps provide never-ending sources of content. They create an “infinity pool” of distraction with no clear end or stopping point in sight.

The exact opposite of what you need to be productive.

But no worries – you don’t have to become a recluse or swear off technology to get more done. You just need to be intentional with how you interact with your device and apps in general. For example:

Disabling alerts and notifications – can reduce the temptation to frivolously check email or social media. If you aren’t facing the barrage of dings and vibrations to start with, you’re less likely to think about them.

This also minimizes the lost productivity (mentioned earlier) when switching between tasks.

Removing social apps – frees you from the anxiety of wondering what you’re missing out on. If you don’t have these apps installed, you can’t access them any time of day. Many who’ve taken a break from social media report it can be liberating.

No one is saying you can’t use these apps – just set rules around how you do so.

Like scheduling specific times of day to go online and holding yourself accountable to these limits. Or rewarding yourself with 10 – 15 minutes of interaction for every 45 minutes of productivity.

Also, consider saving your interactions for when you’re near a desktop computer vs your mobile phone. You’ll still know what’s going on, but without having the urge to check again every 5 minutes.

3. Scheduling In Downtime Increases Productivity

For many of us, our natural tendency during breaks is to reach for our phones or devices. We check email or catch up on social media posts from friends. Because we live in an “always-on” society, if we’re not connected it feels like getting left behind.

Although briefly satisfying, constant stimulus hurts long-term productivity. 

Productivity expert and author Chris Bailey says our minds alternate between two main states –hyperfocus and scatterfocus. And depending on which mode they’re in, they function in completely different ways.

In hyperfocus mode, our brains work hard to accomplish the tasks we want to achieve. Think of this period as the time where physical or mental labor is required to complete an assignment.

Scatterfocus is the exact opposite. Here we brainstorm and create a roadmap of how we’ll get from point A to point B. Scatterfocus is about seeing the big picture and analyzing where we can make the greatest impact.

Not surprisingly, the two form a mutually beneficial relationship. You can’t figure out what needs to be done without contemplating the possibilities. And you’ll never get there without doing the work.

Our subconscious does some of its best work when we are idle. Including solving complex problems, pondering lingering issues, and coming up with new ideas.

If you’re stuck in hyperfocus mode, you don’t have time to concentrate on long-term growth.

Instead of checking email or Facebook at lunch, let your mind wander or try and relax. Take a quick walk outside, get some sun, and enjoy nature. Spend a few minutes relaxing or meditating. Or sit quietly and think (allowing yourself to daydream).

Giving your mind some space may be the most productive thing you’ll ever do.  

If you feel guilty about taking breaks, it’s probably because you don’t think you can. Next time try giving yourself permission beforehand. When you schedule downtime alongside your productive efforts, it becomes easier to relax and enjoy the moment.

Otherwise, you’ll worry the entire time and defeat the whole point of the process.

4. Keep a “Distraction” Book With You

When you’re concentrating, one of the easiest ways to lose focus is by latching on to whatever thought pops into your brain. Yet, in a highly-connected world, it’s incredibly easy to do.

Open a new browser tab – and next thing you know – you’ve wasted an hour surfing the web with nothing to show for it.

This issue stems from the fact that we believe we’ll forget or miss something if we don’t act immediately. We abandon whatever we’re doing to investigate our fleeting impulses before they pass us by. And go completely off-track in the process.

A much better (and easier) approach is to keep a “distraction” notebook with you.

If you’re working on a task – and notice your mind wandering – stop immediately and write your thoughts down in the notepad. Then continue on with your mission. Once you reach a legitimate stopping point in your work, or the time comes for a break, use the opportunity to revisit the items in your notebook.

Working this way offers several advantages:

Frees mental space in your brain – leaving a task unfinished creates clutter in our minds and makes it harder to relax. Mental distraction creates a nagging sensation that’s hard to get rid of. Writing down your ideas gives your brain permission to release these thoughts.

Removes guilt – associated with relaxing when you think you should be working. Your brain feels satisfied in knowing you’ll address the task later which allows you to close the thought loop.

Increases productivity – offloading your thoughts (without killing your momentum) keeps you on track and moving forward. A distraction book prevents you from veering off course and wasting precious time.

Although you can use an app to capture your ideas, stick with traditional paper and pen if possible. Simply because anytime you go “electronic” you run the risk of temptation from other programs that may slow you down.

5. Stop Beating Yourself Up Over Productivity

It sounds cliché, but improving productivity is more of a journey than a destination. Anyone who says they have it all figured out is either lying or delusional. There’s no one perfect formula that works every time for everybody.

No matter how hard you try, eventually you’re going to slip up.

When it happens, don’t beat yourself up. Because the more you do the less likely you’ll be able to recover from it. Acknowledging that we’re human (and people make mistakes) is a fundamental element of improving productivity. 

Take a breath, regroup, and start over again.

Evaluate and learn from your mistake – rather than dwelling on it. If you stumble early in your journey, set smaller, more achievable goals to help build your confidence. As your productivity muscles grow, you’ll feel more comfortable taking on larger tasks.

You’ll also expand your mindset and uncover what you’re truly capable of.

Conclusion

In the end, productivity isn’t about being perfect. It’s about using the time and resources you have wisely toaccomplish goals and increase your happiness.

One of the keys to achieving more is to do less. Focus on a single task at a time, remove all possible distractions, and schedule in essential downtime. You’ll not only get more accomplished faster, but likely have better results to show for your efforts.

And isn’t that what being productive is all about?
