“How do you become more productive?”

Richard Branson leaned back and thought for a second. The tropical sounds of his private oasis, Necker Island, murmured in the background. Twenty people sat around him at rapt attention, wondering what a billionaire’s answer would be to one of the big questions—perhaps the biggest question—of business. The group had been assembled by marketing impresario Joe Polish to brainstorm growth options for Richard’s philanthropic Virgin Unite. It was one of his many new ambitious projects. Virgin Group already had more than 300 companies, more than 50,000 employees, and $25 billion per year in revenue. In other words, Branson had personally built an empire larger than the GDP of some developing countries. Then he broke the silence: “Work out.”

He was serious and elaborated: working out gave him at least four additional hours of productive time every day.

How to Improve Concentration with CIT (And get everything you ever wanted)

Improve Concentration

The giants of the race have been men and women of concentration, who have struck sledge-hammer blows in one place until they have accomplished their purpose. The successful men and women of today are of one overmastering idea, one unwavering aim, men of single and intense purpose. — Orison Swett Marden

For most of my life, I struggled with concentration. Somehow no matter how hard I tried I got distracted. Getting my dream body, my dream life, and my dream career seemed impossible.

Then I discovered why I had such a hard time concentrating. Each time I would concentrate on something, I would get impulses and distractions that would shift my attention to something else and make me fail. See if you can identify with any of these things:

  • I wanted to be lean — and eat fast food and be sedentary
  • I wanted to be successful — and play video games all day
  • I wanted to be great at guitar—and not practice a lot

It's completely normal for us to have opposite impulses, everyone does. The problem I had was I couldn't choose which impulse to respond to. I was constantly being thrown back and forth between opposing drives and not being able to concentrate at anything.

Has this been happening to you?

  • Do you find yourself starting to study and somehow end up on facebook?
  • Do you start working on a project only to forget about it shortly after?
  • Do you eat really clean for a few days and then undo all your efforts?
  • Do you exercise for a few days then decide to skip the gym because you don't feel like it?
