Maybe someone has introduced you to the method of working in short bursts. But it all just sounds so strange to you. And granted, it doesn’t seem like you could accomplish much in twenty-five-minute intervals. So why would you switch? Well, you might be surprised to find out that working in short bursts can change your career trajectory and job satisfaction.
What You Will Accomplish Will Surprise You
The obvious change is you will be shocked by the amount of work you can get done in such a short time. You likely didn’t even realize how truly distracted you were before. And your motivation levels and sense of accomplishment will be through the roof! Which will only lead to you achieving even more!
You’ll Spend Less Time On Social Media
You probably don’t even realize how much time you currently waste away on your phone. Whether it’s scrolling through social media, watching videos, or simply surfing the web, when you split your work up into short bursts, you’ll put a timer on your social media time. That will cut it way back—and give you more time for the things which matter in your career.
You’ll Remember More
Studies have shown that the longer the work period, the more your concentration, focus, and, most importantly, your memory tends to suffer. Memory world champion Dominic O’Brien swears by the short burst method and all it’s done for his astounding memory capabilities. Using this method to memorize works because when your brain focuses for too long, you will stress out and retain less. So, when you give it frequent breaks, it has an easier time remembering the content.
You’ll Have More Free Time

Each day you won’t be spending just staring at your computer or day dreaming out the window.

This will lead to having time for more of the challenges you enjoy or look for work opportunities to get ahead or pursue short term goals.
Although working in short bursts might sound like a strange concept, it works. And the experts swear by it and all it has done in their lives. Give it a try today. After all, you have nothing to lose. And the method has the possibility to absolutely change your job and career for the better.
