This week, Ryan Johansen takes a look at how Deep Work routines can impact the quality and quantity of your work, helping you to be more productive with the hours available.

In a world where we are faced with nearly constant fires, we often find ourselves immersed in a reactive rather than a proactive response. This limits our ability to plan strategy and move the needle on initiatives and goals that need our attention.

Using 5 steps, Ryan shares how to take control of your time and schedule back, allowing you to create times to focus on work in a more effective way.

  • Step 1: Make the mental shift
  • Step 2: Block the same hour each day
  • Step 3: Use technology the right way
  • Step 4: Have what you need to do lined up
  • Step 5: Stick with it
Read the post to learn more about how these steps can help.
