People from all over the world have been turning to hypnosis and self-hypnosis to make themselves more productive for decades. Many of whom have gone on to achieve much better results in their professional and private lives.
The truth is, all efforts towards positive change at work or elsewhere can be beneficial and effective. But there is something unique about the potential of hypnosis to help boost focus, free up time and help you get the most out of your life (read also ‘Hypnosis for Organization‘).
Hypnosis for productivity can be approached in a wide variety of ways. You can download and listen to recordings, you can attend a professional hypnotherapy session, or you can experiment with self-hypnosis. Whichever way you go, you’ll soon find that if you want to get the best out of every waking hour, there’s one important lesson to learn right off the bat:
In order to become more productive, you need to start doing less.
Work Less, Achieve Much More – The Key to Productivity
It sounds counterintuitive, but in the end, it actually makes perfect sense. Productivity is not about working harder and putting more hours in to get things done. Quite the opposite – productivity is about completing tasks more efficiently, achieving goals more consistently, and spending less time putting in the hard work.
This is where most people go wrong, resulting in them pursuing the wrong things entirely when attempting to boost productivity. As a result, they feel as if they are not doing enough when they are actually doing too much. Consequently, achieving effective change and improving personal efficiency is impossible, as they’re approaching the whole thing from entirely the wrong angle.
Of course, all people approach every task, challenge, and daily duty from an entirely different perspective. What works for you may not work for other people, and vice versa.
Either way, the important thing to remember is that the key to productivity lies in inefficiency. As with most things, it’s the small changes that often add up to the biggest difference.
Changing Your Mind Set with Self Hypnosis for Productivity
Contrary to popular belief, there’s no bizarre spiritual nonsense involved in the concept of hypnosis (or self-hypnosis) for productivity. The first and most important goal for anyone looking to increase their productivity should be to change their mindset.
Something that begins by accepting that you are not perfect, and nor do you need to be. If you want to start getting the most out of your time and get more done every day, you need to accept your limitations.
Or, to put it another way, the key to productivity lies in accepting you cannot and will not get everything done. Nor can you realistically expect to achieve all of your goals in a disproportionately short period of time.
Instead, you need to focus on what really matters. Two immediate things to add to your to-do list for productivity are as follows:
1. Focus on exactly what you want to achieve
2. Set aside anything that doesn’t lead towards your goals
Easier said than done? Absolutely, but how can you expect to achieve your goals if you don’t first decide what they are?
Establishing Objectives and Setting Productive Goals
Pursuing productivity simply for the sake of it is a fruitless endeavor. Even the most powerful hypnosis and hypnotherapy cannot make you more productive unless you know why you want to be more productive.
Are you looking to spend less time at work? Do you want to dedicate more time to your personal life? Are you spending too many hours in the office getting little to nothing done? Or do you simply need to stop procrastinating on a daily basis (see ‘Hypnosis for Procrastination‘) to get where you want in your job?
Hypnosis can help with a wide variety of things where being productive (or otherwise) is concerned. For example, it can help you succeed in your job; it can free up more time for you to spend with your friends and so on.
Defined objectives are therefore required; otherwise, you have no real hope of achieving them.
How Hypnosis Can Help You Be More Productive
Something else to know about hypnosis and self-hypnosis at this juncture:
Hypnosis is not a one-time-only quick-fix solution for anything.
It’s also not the kind of thing you can simply turn to in your hour of need in the hope of a swift resolution. Instead, it is a powerful tool that can help with positive changes in almost any aspect of your life (see ‘Positive Thinking Hypnosis‘). By listening to your inner self and determining what you really want, you get to know what’s standing in your way and how to overcome it.
Thousands of the world’s most successful and influential people swear by hypnosis as the ultimate tool for becoming more productive. Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Winston Churchill all regularly practiced hypnosis (see ‘Self-Hypnosis for Success‘) to help them achieve more.
As for whether it could work for you, the basic concept behind hypnosis is actually quite simple. If you already know what you want to achieve, it can be even more powerful and effective.
This is essentially how hypnosis can be put to work to achieve a wide variety of results in relation to everyday productivity:
Hypnosis Can Train You to Relax
Oftentimes, people find it difficult or impossible to perform at their best as they are overworked, overstressed, and generally rundown. Chances are, you regularly share with others how exhausted you are and how difficult you are finding it to get the job done.
Hypnosis (and self-hypnosis) can help by teaching you how to enter a deeply relaxed state and clear your mind of stress. If you want to get things done as efficiently as possible, you need to be as relaxed, energized, and motivated as you can get – see ‘Hypnosis for Motivation and Energy‘, too – all of which begins by first learning how to relax.
It Helps You Identify and Correct Negative Thought Patterns
Seriously – how can you expect to get things done if you spend most of your waking hours convincing yourself you can’t? It is categorically impossible to be productive if you spend your days listening to the negative and counterproductive thoughts in your head.
Positivity and optimism hold the key to motivation, which in turn opens the door to becoming more productive. Precisely where the power of hypnotic suggestions can help, enabling you to change your mindset and approach every task with full confidence.
It Can Also Enable You to Establish Your True Productivity Objectives
Revisiting a previous point, becoming more productive is primarily about deciding what you want and why you want to achieve it. But it’s not until you question your objectives that you sometimes find yourself reconsidering what matters to you and why.
You’re working yourself to death in an attempt to get rich, but do you really need a ton more money? You’re spending 90% of your time awake at work, but would you get more joy by spending more time with your friends and family?
In a Nutshell…
The key thing to remember is that productivity means different things to different people, precisely why there is no silver-bullet solution to procrastination and inefficiency.
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis can help you take better control of your life by building connections with your subconscious and enabling you to control your inner voice. For most, it’s something that is more about banishing unproductive behaviors than it is about working harder and doing more.
