Doublethink for Productivity

6340948-_uy400_ss400_

In the last post I shared about Doublethink, it was one of the craziest ideas which came into existence in the novel “1984” by George Orwell and although it sounded completely fictional I shared how we employ Doublethink in our life as well.

That said, the author Richard Wiseman in his book, “59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot” shared how we can even employ Doublethink for productivity.

Talk about crazy ideas.

Employing Doublethink is actually easy and you may have done it in the past without realizing it (I know because I have done it unknowingly, though). It basically involves enlisting and describing the pros and cons of achieving a particular goal. By looking at both pros and cons our mind makes a better judgment out of it and we end up achieving our goal much faster.
