Do you believe dreams come true when someone works hard? Wrong – Right?
People around the world love smart work. But can’t do.
if they try – They subconsciously go natural and start working hard again.
If someone wants to write a blog post. They will think like this.
I will publish a post tomorrow on my blog.
So it means you will mind map, outline, write the first draft, research and edit in only one day.
The main thing here is without having any idea in hand.
This way your tomorrow will never come.
So it means it is hard work.
On the flip side, smart work is more natural than hard work.
Smart work is simple to do one task at a time and step by step.
If you are a regular writer and have a habit to publish a post daily.
Then it’s okay and will be easy for you but if you don’t have any habit and practice.
You will make excuse like tomorrow.
If you break down the task into many small tasks then it is smart-work.
You can commit yourself to finish the subtask daily or weekly. Etc
#1:) – The Power of NOW
Do not wait for tomorrow, start using the power of now with a simple easy task.
The power of now goes like this.
Richard Branson who runs hundred of companies.
This man started one of his companies when his flight delayed at an airport.
And a beautiful lady was waiting for him in another city.
He planned to book a new jet for him but the fair was high.
So he changed the idea a little bit like this.
He wrote on a whiteboard the airfare to the destinations per person.
The people grabbed the offer and the passenger booked all the available seats.
This way everyone went to their home on time and Richard started a company of passenger plan.
This is how the power of now works.
Do not leave today work for tomorrow.
#2: – Set Small Goals
If you tell yourself to run 5km every morning.
Your mind will object and will give you hundreds of excuses.
If you ask 4 km – chances are low in excuses.
What about 3.
Two are perfect.
Just for 5 minutes… — Okay
That’s how your mind will not object …. so you can run 5 minutes on the first try.
Keeps on increasing your running time 5 more minutes daily – next week or next month Or next Year …. until 5km…
That’s how you can achieve your big goals.
#3:) – Pomodoro Technique

There are different phrases for different tasks.

#4:) – Visualization
Just visualize multiple times a day that you are doing your most important task.
This way your subconscious mind does not differentiate what real and what’s imagined.
Imagine how it will look like when you achieved your goals.
Feel it and be emotional.
By tricking your mind you will get more positive results.
Clear the tasks before you start your day.
Mind process 48.6 thoughts per minute and thinks about future past present and many other junks.
A lot of confusion generates from moments to moments.
Before you start your day get pen and paper or use your smartphone and clear what are the important task today to work on.
Write the most important task first and then so on.

And how you get things done he replied I create a list every morning of all-important tasks and then I begin.
Simple and practice will make it perfect.
#5:) – Old School Technique

It’s a really simple technique to just sharp your focus.
The more focus you put on the area you are working on the more productive result will appear on your behavior and analytics.
