Break Projects Into Pieces: Dr. Brynn's Brain-Based Productivity Boosters

Struggling to start a big task? Having a tough time slogging through a project?
Here's a brain-based trick: break the project into many smaller tasks.

Firstly, this has been proven to help people overcome the psychological barriers that cause perpetual (but anxiety producing) procrastination.

Second, every time you complete one of the tinier tasks, you get a little surge of dopamine (action hormone) and serotonin (happy hormone) that rewards and motivates you to keep progressing and helps you (happily) stay on track.

Finally, breaking up a big project into more 'chewable chunks' has also been shown to create better efficiencies and more realistic expectations: looking at something more granularly helps to more accurately project what time & resources will actually be required to complete the work.

Happy Monday!
