Okay. This Monday feels totally different. After 12 years of going to school, I said goodbye to it. Today is the first day when I am responsible for planning how to study efficiently alone. Personally, I think these steps allow me to be productive:
⭕️Set time (usually 25 min work 5 min break)
⭕️A lot of water
⭕️Phone left in another room
What are your hacks for learning?

Check out the amount of time you spend on social media!
During this month I noticed that people I follow on social media still create a lot of content (for example, related to their past) and after scrolling for a bit I felt like my brain collected too much unnecessary information. I noticed it is really important to work on usage habits of social media and decide whether you really need to scroll that Facebook feed. Dopamine is great, but I personally couldn't consider it worth the emotional hangover that comes after wasting my time scrolling.
“The biggest thing I can tell you is that you have to make as much content as possible” - says Gary Vee.
But is it truly worth spending that much time on social media and keep yourself updated with the life of others?
Emilija, what helps you to stay productive? Any tips and tricks?

•Start your day with a clear focus, because knowing the goals facilitates time planning
•Focus on high-value activities, evaluate the complexity of the tasks and start with the most complex
•Write down your all plans in one place
•Divide jobs into daily, weekly, etc.
•Don’t nearly finish it. Do the task without any “I’ll finish the technicalities later”
•Do not compare yourself with others
What’s your writer’s metaphor?
Writing, for me, is like playing the piano. My head nods and sways, my fingers rapidly move across the keyboard/curl my pen smoothly onto paper, all in harmony with the melody of the words I’m sharing. It’s like a private concert of words and I’m the conductor.
This is my personal writer’s metaphor, I’ve established not too long ago. I was able to figure this out from a certain feeling I always have when writing from the heart. You’ll know when it’s there. And only you will know exactly how to describe this feeling, in your own unique way.
