Being productive simply means working hard and getting good results. This however can not be achieved with idleness or complacency. Every meaningful change we want to effect in our lives can only be actualized through concentrated effort.
The following are the most important techniques to high productivity!
1. WAKE UP ON TIME
One thing that all productive people have in common is that they wake up early.
The level of success you achieve depends entirely on the level of your commitment. If you decide to get up early every day, you not only will have more time to do the things you want to, but you will feel less sluggish because you didn’t sleep in and break your routine. Think of all the things you could do with an extra few hours in your day.
2. STICK TO A SCHEDULE
Where would we be without a schedule? We would be lost. Whether we realize it or not, we all have a schedule. We carry that schedule with us everywhere we go, but this schedule is not tangible, it’s on our brain and it can weigh us down.
We all have plans which change from day-to-day and week-to-week. Some of us try to keep our plans only in our heads. Why tire yourself out? I recommend Google Calendar or a similar calendar tool, or app, to help you keep everything you want to do organized. You’ll find yourself with much more mental energy than before!
4. THEY NEVER LET PEOPLE GET IN THEIR WAY
One thing I have seen over and over again, is how a person’s network can have a huge influence on how they act. We should never let anybody dictate how we think. Ideally, we make a decision first, and then ignore anybody who has a problem with that!
Productive people do what’s most important at the moment it is most important to do it. Forget the norm, create the future you deserve.
4. DON’T FALL PREY TO ‘URGENT’ TASKS
Each and every day, we are presented with a plethora of tasks that need to get done before our head hits the pillow that night.
It’s not a good idea to leave things to the last moment, but it is often a good idea to take care of tasks for a set amount of time, planned before they need actually be completed. That way you only spend as much effort as is necessary and minimize the amount of wasted time.
5. AVOID MULTITASKING
This really is an age-old topic of discussion, and there are so many mixed feelings about this topic across the web. I’ll tell you, I used to be a massive advocate of multitasking, however, I have come to understand that not all tasks can or should be done in conjunction with one another.
I personally believe its much better to concentrate on one task at a time rather than putting your brain through a series of rigorous process.
