Everyone wants to be more productive. I can relate, I’m always on the hunt for ways that can improve my productivity.
So here are the top five ways to improve your productivity:
Having a plan can be one of the most valuable things you can ever to do improve your productivity.
It doesn’t need to be overly complicated – can be as simple as deciding the main focus for your day.
But when you have a plan, you will know exactly what needs to happen rather than wondering throughout the day. Not having a plan is a recipe for distraction.
To Do List
This builds on the previous point about having a plan, and takes it further. Having a to do list means you will not just have a primary focus, but a detailed strategy for how to move forward and make progress. You will have a defined checklist that will keep you on track.
Again, does not need to be complicated. I usually have a list of 3 main things for the day.
Create a routine
Creating a routine means you don’t have to consciously think about all the things you need to do.
That frees up your mental energy, which you can then utilise to be more productive.
Prioritising helps you focus. It goes hand in hand with planning and to do lists, and supercharges them! When you prioritise, you decide on what to work on first, and work on only that until it is dealt with.
The flip side of that coin is not prioritising, which will result in you being constantly distracted. Guess how productive you are when you are constantly distracted…
Yes, taking breaks helps your productivity, even if it might seem counterproductive. You need to realise that your brain can’t function nonstop. In exactly the same way that your computer overheats and needs to sleep from time to time, your brain gets tired and needs to rest.
So taking break helps with that. It helps rejuvenate your brain, which then improves your effectiveness and productivity.
There you go – the top 5 ways to improve your productivity.
They are not rocket science. They are really simple and straightforward ideas, and are easy for you to apply in your life and work (if you don’t already that is).
Here’s one bonus tip: when implementing them, choose one – try it out, then try another, rather than trying to apply them all at once. Remember prioritisation, it helps to focus.
