In an AMRAP (As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible) Workout, your goal is to get as much as you can in a certain time. If the clock is set for 10 minutes, you work as hard as you can for 10 minutes. Whatever you accomplish is your score, and your workout is done after the time expires. No matter what, you push for 10 minutes and do what you can.
So, could you incorporate that same method into your life to be more efficient?
If you set a timer, would you be less likely to waste time with the unnecessary?
Would you complete a task quicker, or better because of the limited time you’ve given yourself to do it?
Here are some suggestions
- If you’re about to do something on your computer (checking email, scanning social media, updating a website, etc.) then set a timer for that particular task and do what you can until it goes off. I use this “timer-tab” – it’s simple and it helps.
- If you’re about to do something around the house (a chore, reorganizing, minimizing, etc.) then set a timer on your phone for the task and get as much done as possible in that time.
This strategy works well for jobs, responsibilities or tasks where you really just want to do get it accomplished without wasting precious time dilly-dallying or becoming distracted. It’s best to use the “AMRAP mentality” when you’re really focused on being productive and checking things off your to-do list. Obviously don’t use it when you’re trying to chill, enjoy time with your favorite people, or do something fun or creative.
Bottom Line: If you can be efficient with tasks that are important to accomplish then you’ll open up a lot more free time to do what you love, attack your goals and help others.
