Vigilance decrement

The idea of vigilance decrement is that when you’re in a tough task, when you’re doing emails too long, when you’re planning out things, the way you pay attention towards the end of that task is typically worse than how you paid attention at the beginning. (Joe Sanok)

Recent studies have shown that vigilance decrement is quickly remedied by taking a one-minute break between tasks or at least every 20-minutes.

Take a break by trying out some of these activities instead of looking at your phone:

  • Taking a walk around your property or the block
  • Petting the dog
  • Doing a quick stretch
  • Going outside

How to set up your environment to jump into the flow state

Protect your brain in the morning: when you are working on your task, try to steer clear of social media or watching the news before you start so that you keep your mind focused and your own ideas at the forefront.

Eat a healthy breakfast: feed your body with nutritious food to benefit your overall well-being and the health of your brain.

Set up the physical environment:

  • Change the lighting
  • Reposition your chair
  • Listen to certain playlists

When you are wanting to enter the flow state, layout your space accordingly, as this will help your mind associate this type of environment with going into deep work.

Set a timer: give yourself a set amount of time to fully focus on one aspect.

Sprint types

A lot of times people sprint or batch and try to get things done but it just doesn’t work for them – just like personality types. If you don’t understand your personality type it’s harder to do things, [this is] the same with your sprint types … are you a time-block sprinter or a task-switch sprinter? (Joe Sanok)

Time-block sprinter: Someone who works on one task for a minimum of one hour to a maximum of four hours.

Task-switch sprinter: Someone who needs variety, and who can work on multiple tasks consecutively over a period.

Another important sprint factor is timing. When do you sprint?

Automated sprinter: someone who repeats the same task every week at the same time until it has been completed.

Intensive sprinter: someone who goes to a different environment to complete their work.
