On their own, they are not as efficient; when practiced together they will change the way you work. It can be hard to constantly be productive throughout the day. These four tips give high-quality insight on a few ways to help keep you moving efficiently.
Distractions are circling around us daily. Doing what we can to remove distractions can be beneficial, specifically when it comes to technology. With constant social media updates, it is easy to get sidetracked when unneeded technology is in eyesight. Place the phone out of view and set a goal to only visit social media for 10 minutes out of your day. If lacking self-control, try using an app like Onward, which allows you to selectively disable apps and limit phone use for a specific amount of time.
Stay organized by creating a daily and weekly to-do list to help stay on track with the important tasks that need to be done. This will help prioritize your time effectively. To-do lists not only provide you with focus but also reward you with satisfaction when you complete items on the list. Know the three most important tasks and focus on those each day before working on the others.
One Task At A Time
Dedicate yourself to one task at a time to help you accomplish more while bringing more attention to your work individually. It is more time consuming to start, stop, and switch tasks leading to less productivity. Focus on one thing at a time to best accomplish more in less time. With single tasking, your focus isn’t distributed so you are working more efficiently with less distraction.
“Productivity is like any skill. The more you practice it, the better you get.”
All the best!
