15 SIMPLE METHODS THAT WILL BOOST PRODUCTIVITY
#1 – “I’ve started so I’ll finish…” When you start something, finish it. Trying to juggle tasks is counter-productive and it is very easy to lose focus. Focus all of your efforts into one task at a time and the time it will take to complete them will decrease massively.
#2 - Play Appropriate Music “When listening to classical music, it improves the ability to solve problems and increases accuracy by 12%”PPL, 2014
#3 - SET A CRAZY TARGET FOR THE DAY
Setting outlandish goals means you are raising standards and getting more done.
#4 PUT… THE COFFEE… DOWN… After the initial burst of energy… …it will cause issues later with attention and focus
#5 - WAKE UP WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
“The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.” Dennis Waitley
#6 Breakfast is NOT OPTIONAL An early morning protein or sugar boost is just what you need A hungry stomach isn’t
#7 - DITCH THE PHONE
A smartphone is not smart for productivity Browsing through… …won’t get stuff done
#8 IMPROVE YOUR LIGHTING TO IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY
I’d much rather work here…
#9 Start the day with your most difficult telephone conversations… …when you’re anxious about these conversations, the tasks that need doing aren’t in the forefront of your mind
#10 – News is great…but very distracting! Get rid of the alerts and stop checking, in this case no news is definitely good news!
#11 AVOID PROCRASTINATORS Gossiping with Brenda from accounts or watching the latest viral videos at the water cooler is not cool at all. Nod at these people when you pass them in the office, don’t embrace non-work conversation!
#12 – REACHED A DEAD END? WELL STOP.
Writers block? Gone blank? Well then, come back to it later! Completing tasks is important, what’s more important is completing them to the best of your ability
#13 – End those meetings slightly earlier… Pulling that clock back by ten minutes gives you a chance to make that call or to respond to those emails…
#14 If you find enjoyment from what you do, then an increase in productivity is natural…
#15 – JUST BEGIN Don’t just lie there, get out of bed and go and kick some ass!
