Flow + Pomodoro The Super Productivity Stack The Darius Foroux Show: Mindset, Business, Money

In my experience, you do your best work when you’re in a good mood and you’re focused. You can also look at it as being a state of “Flow,” which is a term the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined. You can get in a Flow mind-state by having the right balance between challenge and skill level. How do you know you have Flow? When work is effortless and you’re making progress. I’m finally in that state as I’m writing this after being out of it for a few months. I was dealing with major renovations at my home, and then, I had to do a lot of small tasks here and there for my upcoming book. Once I finished my most pressing tasks, my goal was to get into Flow again. I took it easy. Fiddled a bit. Read some books. And journaled a lot. “Getting close” is something I wrote about often. And then, a few days ago, it hit me: Ignore all the noise and only focus on writing. So that’s what I’m doing now. Plus, I combine it with another productivity strategy, the Pomodoro technique. When you do that, you have the ultimate productivity stack. Pre-order The Stoic Path to Wealth My new book is coming out July 16th. It shows you how to build enduring wealth in the stock market.

I also have a library of podcast episodes available in case you’re new to my work. You will especially enjoy my podcast if you have enough from listening to the same people on different podcasts. I only interview people who’s work I find valuable. To me, that’s the best way to have a conversation that’s also valuable for the reader.

If you’re into interviews, check out my conversations with Derek Sivers and Cal Newport. Listeners enjoyed those episodes a lot.

If you’re into productivity, check out “How To Focus Better” and “How To Beat Procrastination With Systems.” Those episodes were received well my listeners who want to get more done.

If you’re curious about personal finance and wealth building, check out my popular episode “5 Tips To Get Rich Slowly.” In that episode, I talk about several practical tips I’ve learned. Not the standard get rich quick advice.

I also have an episode on strength training and fitness. I’ve been working out since I was 16 and experienced many injuries. On “5 Tips For More Effective Strength Training” I talk about how I changed my approach. As a result, I feel stronger and I’m no longer injured several times a year.

I’ve also experimented with added audio articles to my podcast. For example, I recorded an audio version of 10 Career Mistakes I Wish I Had Never Made. That’s one of my most-read articles on careers.
