You often wonder why some people are so successful while you yourself are not. Despite your best efforts, you always seem to lack the productivity that makes these highly successful people tick. So what can you do to increase your productivity?
Here are four simple tips you can use and tear through those tasks:
Scheduling may not seem like an interesting exercise, but it has its uses. Make a to-do list so that you can actually decide when you can do each task in the day. When you have carved out your timetable, stick to it: no distractions, social media, email, or any other activity.
No. Other. Tasks. Period.
You’d be surprised at your speed when you are able to concentrate on the tasks at hand.
It is very crucial that you rearrange your to-do list in the order of importance. That way, you know the essential thing you have to perform every day to get results in a timely fashion. If you keep the most important tasks at the end of your timetable, the chances are that you might procrastinate or not do them at all.
3. Reduce Multitasking
Multitasking may be an essential skill for some, but in reality, it can be a productivity killer. When we try to do many things at once, our brain has to perform extra work processing all that information.
Not only that, but our memory can be overloaded, and we might not remember little, albeit important details. And more often than not, we fail at multiple things instead of succeeding at a single one. So try to do one thing at a time if you can.
4. Systems and processes
It may sound daft to you but remember or document how you actually work. You’ll soon realize the repetitive patterns and make them work for you. It then becomes stupidly easy to do those tasks again.
So with these four simple tricks, you can be as productive as ever and achieve more success than you can imagine. And then others will start asking you for tips. How’s that for success?
