High intensity productivity: Maximising the impact of short time periods or opportunities for progress

This discussion seminar will support researchers at all levels to make the most of short periods of study and research time. We will work together to create a personalised plan of action combining High Intensity Productivity (HIP) with focused goal setting. During the session we consider the biggest reason for procrastination and learn how to break larger research and study activities in to manageable and achievable tasks. The session benefits from integrated protected self-development time to trial the tools learned in the session and the opportunity to reflect on how researchers will implement their learning in order to make the most of future opportunities and avoid procrastination.

Learning outcomes:

  • Set realistic goals for short periods of research or ‘admin’ time
  • Identify procrastinating behaviour and how to overcome it
  • Consider how to be kind to our future-self through maintaining momentum
  • Identify when HIP is best utilised
  • Integrated protected time to trial HIP techniques with immediate demonstrable achievements

“The whole course was useful but the delivery in terms of sharing with others and actually completing some activities and productive work made it a great experience. The practical as well as theoretical made you realise you can actually do better.”
