Switch to other task when your mind gets tired from monotonous work


Our mind is in need of various kinds of activities

It's useful to do similar tasks together, but if you are doing them too long, you can find yourself in a routine. When you are occupied with the same monotonous work, your mind may get caught in an endless loop. Our mind works like a safety device. When it gets tired, it automatically stops concentrating on your current work and shifts to something different. If you make your mind continue working exactly at this kind of tasks, you probably won't get required results. It would be more productive to switch to other task that also must be accomplished today, but differs from your current work. This will help you to refresh your mind and go on working effectively.

"Change your work direction" To Do List

  • If you realize that your mind is tired of monotonous work, complete its current stage and pause
  • Look through your today task list and select the task assigned on today with higher priority that differs from those that you were doing before
  • Start doing this task and when you accomplish it continue the previous one
  • Use software to filter tasks by their finish date, sort by priority and select required task to accomplish

Action plan

  1. Start your task management software
  2. Set filter to display tasks assigned on today
  3. Sort tasks by their priority and select those one that has higher priority and differs from your previous work
  4. Start doing the task
  5. Continue your previous work when this task is completed
