With so many distractions in life, it’s so easy to be a procrastinator! No one wants that! No fear, keep reading to learn how we try and become more productive (at least Monday-Friday).
Make a Realistic To-Do List
…and don’t overwhelm yourself. To-do lists often fail because we make them large and not realistic! Some tasks will take a long time, others won’t take any time at all. This creates challenges in the way we distribute our time! Keep your to-do list clear, concise and manageable.
Set Small Goals for Big Tasks
With every new project or assignment, the end goal may seem too large. But once you start breaking it down and realizing what can be accomplished, you’ll notice how each part builds upon the other! Remember, one step at a time!
Noise Cancelling Headphones are a MUST
Cancel all the distractions — your phone, the TV and the chatter! This will help you to focus on your task at hand! Trust us, it works!
It’s easy to get distracted and try to work on multiple tasks, but the reality is, it makes you LESS productive. The constant task switching is making us more tired and reducing productivity. Instead, focus on 1 task at a time.
Ask for Help
We know, asking for help is hard sometimes! But, in the long run, you will save more time and become more productive especially if you simply don’t understand something!
