In every industry, competition and collaboration have increased and it has become more important than ever for people to be at the top of their game. YES, every day we are all obsessed by productivity. What are the Tools, Tips and Tricks?
- The hardest part of staying productive is keeping yourself focused.
Focus on one task at a time and avoid thinking about other tasks. As your mind craves routine, make productivity a habit by planning your major tasks each day. Make time to disconnect from all technology, notifications and email to minimize distractions.
- Keep your brain in shape.
You all know that a daily workout is a great way to keep your body and your mind in shape. Finding time for a morning run or exercise can help prevent the mid-afternoon productivity slump.
- Question every activity/distraction that you encounter during the day.
Ask yourself if you really need to do this activity and look for something else more important that you should be doing instead of this activity.
- Have a deep interest in what you do and enjoy it.
Chasing productivity is always a big challenge when you are always trying to find a better way to do things. So you have to have a deep interest in what you do and enjoy it, even when the schedule is crazy and demands a lot of productivity.
- Figure out what your hourly rate is and compare everything you’re doing to that.
What helps you set your goals is having a clear understanding of what your priorities are and if you have a boss, understanding what theirs are and how yours align.
- Eliminate wasteful activity from your day.
Maximize your Return on Time invested (ROT) in everything you do and if something isn’t yielding a high ROT, then simply stop doing it or pass it off to someone else.
- Finally you can always do more than you think you can do.
There’s only so much time in the day so getting things done is about quality and quantity. If you don’t have a routine, then create one. Wake up and get busy getting things done.
Productivity can be a very personal thing, so I encourage you to share your own tips with me.
