Elon Musk, one of the most famous industrialists of today, uses the method of ‘time blocking’ to plan time in his daily life. In addition, many successful businessmen in the world (Bill Gates, Cal Newport, etc.) follow this rule. The ‘time blocking’ method has certainly played a big role in the success of these individuals.
The name Elon Musk is known to many and he is a massive source of motivation for many. He is one of the smartest and busiest businessmen of today. His dream is to send a common man to Mars and he is working day and night for that. He is the CEO of Tesla, a leading electric car company, and SpaceX, a private company in the space technology sector. In these self-founded companies, he works as a technician and often writes code for Tesla or SpaceX products.
Elon Musk, who works 11 to 14 hours a day, sleeps only 6 hours. He also has children. He also saves time for his family. In addition, he exercises a few days a week. It makes a difference when you make time for your hobbies!
Elon Musk’s ‘5 Minute rule’ – The Secret behind his Success
The secret behind Elon Musk’s success is the 5-minute rule. From waking up in the morning to going to bed at night, the whole day’s musk is already planned. He divides the whole day into 5 minutes blocks (parts) of 5 minutes. It is already decided which 5-minute block to use for which work. In one 5 minute block, he replies to an e-mail, in the other block, he packs a meal (in just 5 minutes!). In fact, he tries to get business meetings done in less time. Also, he avoids picking up the phone even if it comes in the middle of work.
Although Elon Musk’s ‘5 Minute Rule’ seems very simple, it is very difficult to implement. The main reason for this is that you have to plan the next day for the tasks you want to do, but by sitting in 5-5 minute blocks.
If you have very little time to do something, you put all your energy into it. In short, your productivity increases, and that work is more likely to be completed. Also, since you have already decided what to do, your mind becomes engrossed in the things at hand and stops thinking about other things. In short, your concentration increases.
In the current industry scenario, everyone needs to increase his or her productivity to remain in the race. It may be the year for survival but if the business survives then only you can. So, plan your schedule well to avoid the need for extra working hours.
