Using Your Subconscious for Productivity

I am not entirely sure where the subconscious is located but, I know it exists, and it’s an amazing powerhouse. I am not an expert in psychology or anything. So, I’d definitely recommend reading the works of Milton Erickson to people interested in the subject. Erickson is definitely the master.

What I’d like to talk about in this post is how I’ve been tapping into the power of my subconscious to be more productive throughout the day. First of all, I’m a big fan of having clear, monthly goals. At the beginning of each lunar month, I write down five to ten goals that I’d like to accomplish within that lunar cycle. The period between the New Moon and the Full Moon is ideal for setting up your goals and start working on them. After the Full Moon, you should use the waning moon period to finish all the remaining goals and get rid of the ones that no longer serve you.

Writing down your goals is crucial. First of all, you create more space in your brain for creativity. By writing down your goals, or the things you need to get done, you are literally helping your brain create more space for innovative ideas. Why should you waste your time trying to hold all the tasks in your mind? Put them on paper!

Now, let’s talk about how to incorporate your subconscious into the game. Once you write down your goals, make a habit of reading them every morning. By reading your goals every morning, your subconscious will feel obliged to accomplish the relevant goal. If you need further evidence or information regarding how this works, please read Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy.

Our subconscious is a real powerhouse. Another way you can let your subconscious help you is with small things you need to remember throughout the day. For example, I need to remember to take my shopping bag with me before I leave the house to do the groceries. I kindly ask my subconscious to remind me to take the shopping bag when I put my shoes on. In a way, I associate putting shoes on with taking the shopping bag. Try it yourself! Your subconscious is more than happy to help you out.
