Simple tips to increase your
Life gets increasingly busier the older we get. This is in part due to all of the added responsibilities we gain
as an adult. It can be tough for people to remember all the things they need to get done, but also be able to
accomplish all of these tasks successfully.
It’s good to remember that when things get busy at work, we want to make
sure that we’re actually being productive. Productivity is the key ingredient when our day is filled with a lot to
do. There are many tips and tricks that we can rely on to help us get done all we need to.
|There are many tips to help you be more productive, but one of the essential
to plan ahead, prepare necessary stuff, be organized, and stay focused on the task at hand.
It goes without saying that when you're well organized, you will do more, feel better about yourself, and even
find pockets of time to do extra stuff. Make a habit of planning and preparing for your tasks, which makes it
easier to follow through. Plus, you get a sense of accomplisment.
Write things down
The best place to start when you have many tasks to complete is by writing things down. It seems obvious, but many people hope that they’ll just be able to
remember everything they need to do. Whether you get a calendar or notebook, or simply add a reminder in your
phone, writing things down is the best way to avoid forgetting what you need to get done.
Another good tip is to determine which tasks are high priority and which tasks are low priority. By determining
the importance of the tasks at hand, you can figure out what is actually important vs what we think’s important.
Many things that we add to our lists are not things that are actually high priorities. It’s essential to develop
the skills to be able to determine which is which.
Do easy stuff first
It’s also recommended that you get the fastest tasks completed first. Things that take under 2 minutes to
accomplish should be the first things we do. This helps eliminate tasks, so you no longer have to worry about them,
and it helps with getting a sense of success.
Look after your health
One seriously overlooked part of productivity is taking care of yourself. By taking the time to prioritize your health you can get more done and can avoid burnout.
By simply taking the time to add exercise to your week you can help eliminate the stress that comes along with having a lot to do. When hyper stressed or
when you don’t have a lot of spare time, people tend to start eating unhealthily. By making sure your diet is
good, you will feel better and be able to get more done.
It may also be a good option for you to look into taking some supplements or nutrients if you are not able to
get them through your food. Many supplements can help increase your productivity. You can take supplements that
range from vitamin D to antioxidants. There are many options available for you that can help make
sure your health is where it needs to be in order for you to be proactive.
Too often we start doing something, get distracted and work on something else. Some distractions can be positive and even give you an extra productivity boost, like a phone call
or a visit from a potential client. Many distractions can come from the lack of focus or poor planning, or even
some health issue that might be a bother.
Boost your productivity
On the other hand, depending on the nature of your work, listening to music can give you a good boost and
increase your productivity. Some people like to work with a classical music in the backround, while the others are more prone to listen to the
latest hits. Just as long as music doesn't become a distraction, or an end in itself.
Overall, you will want to make sure you are working smarter, not harder. There are a lot of methods you can try
to make sure you’re wise with your time and not expending energy needlessly.
By planning things out ahead of time you can figure out what works best for you and come up with a plan of
attack that will help you make the right choices when it comes to your tasks.
