There are days where you feel unproductive at times, where it feels like you don’t want to do more and you’ve got the urge to just lay back and relax, but did you know that you can fight it off and start doing more by incorporating good habits into your day?? You can be productive by the habits you choose to incorporate in your routine because to be productive is a choice, it is part of the lifestyle that we cultivate every single day. By how we approach living our life affects everything, and that includes being productive in every single task that we do.
That is how many successful people are motivated towards their goals because they chose to be productive and try to do more than what they usually do. They never stop learning and they never stop doing something more that could help them reach their goals. They spent their day effectively and productively. You might ask how well they do it. How can they never get tired or feel lazy about doing something productive? Because clearly we all get tired, we all need time to relax, but because they use their time wisely, and they have a mentality that in order to be successful in life, they have to make a schedule that includes productive work and if they don’t put at least one productive thing to do in their day, they will be stuck in the process of not achieving the goals they set for themselves.
They do something productive each day, but if they ever feel the need to relax, they took breaks before it could lead to stress. They always improve their skill through the amount of productivity they put on each task that they do and allow themselves to venture on multiple areas they want to work on at once, which not only saves their time but also handles them effectively.
The question still remains. How can you really do more the same way as these successful people do, to become successful yourself? Well, in this article I will mention some tips to increase productivity to do each of your tasks productively and be helpful to your path towards your goals and dreams.
- Think like many of the successful people you know.
There are hundreds of successful people in social media that gives motivational speeches and mentors people towards pursuing their passion and achieving the goals they set for themselves. Names like Gary Vaynerchuck, Ed Mylett, Angie Bellemare, or people in Ted Talks, but why exactly did I mention their names? Well, it’s because if you noticed, most of these successful people are far more motivated and productive in life. It’s how they hustle and worked hard to become successful themselves, so I used them as an example, for you to adapt their mentality and be as productive as them, because if they can do it, why can’t you?
Think of it this way, most successful people think differently. They have a positive outlook in life, they don’t lack motivation and they never procrastinate in their work. So if you feel overwhelmed with the amount of work that you do, you can break down each task and work on it by how much you can handle and manage it. You don’t need to work in multiple areas at the same time if you can’t. Remember, being productive is not about how you can be able to finish off all the tasks at once, but how you can do it effectively. We all got to start somewhere before we adapt to it and become efficient ourselves. Do not procrastinate especially if you feel tired of the things you are doing. Instead, switch up the habits you do in your routine, so the chances of delaying tasks will become unlikely.
If you feel tired for a moment, you can rest. Manage your time with ease and schedule it wisely. You can do a productive thing at this time then after a few hours take a break. We all can’t be productive 100% of the time. Giving rest to both our mind and body is equally important to function well in everything we do in our life.
- Work on Your Time Management and Organization
As I have mentioned in the first one, you have to schedule your time wisely. Write down the tasks that you plan to achieve and set timelines. That way, you are achieving your tasks in a timely and productive manner. Plan your routines accordingly as well as when you will take a break. Set priorities even if you have to handle multiple tasks at once. Know which is more important to do first and set aside some things that aren’t important as of the moment but do not neglect it. Focus on one thing at a time to not make you feel overwhelmed in handling all of the tasks you need to finish on time. Time Management and organization is the key and you have to make sure you work on those areas to improve productivity.
- Develop Skills and Good habits
Whether it might be reading, learning through online learning platforms like Udemy or YouTube, we should always try to develop our skills or adapt a new skill that you are passionate about. After all, we never stop learning. Even through experiences we learn, so what more if we develop our skills and adapting good habits in our life. Learning is growing and not only that but it also gives our mind the capability to improve.
- Remove and Avoid Distractions that can delay your productivity
Ask yourself the things that you want to achieve in your life and the steps that you need to take in order to reach it. You can focus on it by avoiding distractions that could only postpone or delay the things that you are doing in order to reach your dreams. Put effort into the things you want most and if you are being distracted by your phone, social media, people, or any other distractions you encounter that can only delay your productivity and progress, cut them off, and focus on yourself so you can be productive at it.
- Discipline Yourself to make productivity a habit
Discipline yourself enough to achieve the tasks that you need to do and nothing else. If you procrastinate, you are not only postponing your work but you are also not trying to discipline yourself enough to continue and be productive of the things you need to do. Make it a habit to do something productive every day and think that by procrastinating you are not bringing your goals closer to you, because being productive gives compelling results to your life.
