5 Simple Ways Making Your Day Way More Productive

There is only a limited amount of hours in your day. Being more productive means getting more out of the limited time you have available. Now matter how productive you already are, odds are you can enhance your productivity a lot more. Being more productive means having more time for life’s more enjoyable activities.

Here are 5 simple tips to increase your productiveness:

1

SET YOUR TIMER

Before starting with a task, take a moment to assess how long it will take. Set the timer for that amount of time and start immediately. Your benefits are:

  •  It gives you a stopping point. You don’t need to watch the clock.
  • You’re less likely distracted until the task is complete or the alarm goes off.
  • A timer is a great tool to focuse your mind on the task. Try it and you’ll see how much it will help. A timer is especially effective for those with attention and focus challenges.

 

2

AVOID PERFECTION

Tasks require different levels of quality. It’s likely you’re giving some tasks too much attention or time. Ask yourself how good it really needs to be and stop doing significantly more. Apply the 80/20 rule. 80% of your results come from 20% action.

 

3

MAKE A TO-DO LIST AND PRIORITIZE

This forces you to think about what needs to be done. The 3 most important tasks are normally more important than all the other items combined. Check off each task, and enjoy your progress.

 

4

CREATE YOUR LIST FOR THE DAY

Create your to-list the day before or first thing in the morning. Take a little time at the end of the day to create tomorrow’s to-do list. (Or first thing in the morning before checking your email.) Your mind will be free to tackle the first task immediately.

 

5

ONE TASK AT A TIME

Research shows it’s much more effective to focus on one task at a time. Complete one task before moving to the next. You’ll get a lot more accomplished and stay focused.

If you effectively use your time to enhance your performance, you can increase your leisure time. Simple ideas can have significant results. Experiment with different options until you find the strategies that are most effective for you.
