We all get the same 24 hours in a day and to be productive you need to be aware of managing yourself, rather than your time. So, why do we so often get off track? It all comes down to productive vs busy.
Being productive is about planning and prioritising, being organised and knowing exactly what needs to be completed.
So, here are some quick tips to improve your productivity today:
Create your to do list, think about the urgency and importance of each of your tasks, and prioritise them into what must be done now, what can wait and what perhaps could even be delegated.
2. Remove distractions
Whether it’s the constant beep or your team around you, it’s important to minimise the distractions so you can remain focused.
3. Focus on one task at once
Many people think that being able to multi-task is a good thing. But in the end, it can mean that you’re not focusing on any one thing and you may not be getting anything done well. It’s important to focus on one task at once.
4. Stick to your deadlines
With a deadline in place, you can’t keep putting things off. Think about what you need to get done today, and set yourself specific timelines to complete these tasks. Set yourself a timer if needed, to help keep you on track.
5. Take a break to re-focus
Keeping your mind refreshed throughout the day will ultimately help your productivity. 5-10 minute breaks between tasks will help you re-focus on what you need to be working on and help keep your energy levels high. And at least once throughout the day, get outside!
