The counterintuitive way to turn 20 min into 4 hours

Got a quick lil productivity hack for you today.


Keep reading, and I’ll show you how to turn 20 measly minutes into 4 hours of raw energy.


But I gotta warn you:


It’s counterintuitive, so you won’t understand this fully until you try it.


Here’s the story:


I got an unusually early start to work yesterday. I woke up at my normal time, but I was too exhausted for a morning gym sesh. (Don’t worry, I still went in the evening.)


Anyway, after banging out a bunch of email copy for my clients, I ate Chipotle. Then, I got real tired. Too tired to focus, start a new project, or even sit at my desk.


So here’s what I did:


I walked two feet over from my office to my bedroom. Then, I took the most refreshing 20-minute nap I ever did take.


The result?


My energy levels restored, and I powered through another productive 4-hour timeframe.


When I felt good enough to be done with the day, I went to the gym and had a great lift sesh. Then, I came home and practiced my bass for my upcoming gig.


So, add in the hours spent at the gym and practicing… that 20-minute nap unlocked a good 6 or 7 extra hours of productive time to my day.


Now, there have been other days when I felt the same way as yesterday… but tried to power through it instead of giving my mind a rest.


Without exception, the 20-minute nap was a better productivity hack than trying to power through it.


Do with that what thou wilt.


Just figured I'd share.


Anywho:


Wanna know how I “get away” with taking naps in the middle of my day?


Because my business unlocks freedom.


If you’re business enslaves you rather than frees you, mayhap I can help:


Nothing unlocks freedom like cash money bay-bee.


And nothing unlocks cash money like sending emails people love to read and buy from.


Maybe you can see where this is going…


So if you have a proven offer and wanna make more cash money and unlock more freedom, book a call, and let’s chat.
