Overview: Getting in the zone – some people call it “being on a roll.” By whatever name, you benefit from higher productivity and effectiveness when you’re proceeding at your best. Learn how to get – and stay – on a roll
Getting in the zone requires that you take charge of your immediate environment to the degree that you can, as often as needed. You might find that stress comes largely from the feeling of not being in control. There’s something about taking control of your immediate environment that enables you to get the best from yourself, to work with your internal rhythms, and to produce superior results more easily and effortlessly. As often as possible, you want to work with your internal rhythm so that you get the best of yourself, while minimizing the wear and tear of working. For example, any time you’ve been seated at your desk for twenty minutes or so, it’s best to get up and stretch, even if only for a few seconds. Your veins and your heart need this.
If you feel that your office and the surrounding technology is deleterious to productivity and personal balance, let any disturbances hereafter serve as a reminder that while you can’t control everything, there are ways to turn situations to your advantage. When you creatively carve out sanctuaries for yourself, they give you both the quiet you need to get quality work done, and serve as a reminder that you’re in charge of your career.
Why should you Attend: Being in the zone means that you get so much accomplished, or what transpires flows so freely, that seemingly many more hours have past than actually have. Would it be useful for you to know how to get into your zone on a more consistent basis and achieve high productivity day after day? You bet it would Being in the zone occurs when you are not conscious of your output or responsiveness in relationship to fixed time intervals, such as an hour. You can increase the likelihood of experiencing a favorable “zone” effect by removing yourself from the time measured environment – such as hiding the clock. This is why jotting notes while sitting on a park bench, in an airplane, or on your back porch, often yields greater output than anticipated or accomplished during the same interval while at a desk in a traditional office. One hour of uncluttered thought can yield more benefits than days of common desk work.
