5 Ways to Become More Productive

Of all the resources we have to make things happen in our lives, time is the one we all have in common. Time affects us all differently and that we’re all at different intersections with father T. What is also true is that we are all presented with similar opportunities to take advantage of the time we have.

The way that you choose to allot your time will have a significant impact on what comes and what we do at that time. The proof is in the productivity levels, and what you’re building is up to you, GR8 friend.

1. Balance Multi and Single Tasking

They say that multi-tasking is the way to go when trying to reach peak levels of productivity. The logic makes sense initially. It makes sense to aim for getting more done at once. Some people find incredible success in completing tasks this way.

Others detest multi-tasking all together. They say that it’s more productive to do one task at a time as not to sacrifice efficiency or some other outstanding quality. How about both, though? Not every job requires the same level of attention. Some jobs are done in a multitude, and some are better off with prolonged attention to minute details. Become an expert at delegating how tasks are approached by finding a balance between multiple tasks and focusing on just one.

2. Know When it’s Time for a Mental Health Day

There are times where we’re screaming for a two o clock coffee and want to quit every task insight, drop everything, and crawl into a space to hide. If this happens to you now and then, it’s normal. However, if this sounds more familiar than “now and then,” it might be time to consider taking a day for your mental health.

Not even your organs respond to commands optimally when your brain is preoccupied with anxiety, stress, and other mental side effects of not taking a break. Making sure that your mental health is functioning in a healthy place isn’t just nice. It’s critical for productivity and overall efficiency.

3. Get Up Early

I know you’ve already heard the bit about early birds and the worm, but getting up early does more for your productivity than simply adding more hours to the day. Waking up earlier allows for a slower start to the day that can help to ease stress, allow time for planning and tasks, as well as avoid the overall headache of rushing.

Rushing is a productivity killer. Even when you’re checking tasks off the list, you might find yourself revisiting them later on because you missed something. Making time goes hand in hand with taking your time.

4. Remove Your Mental Roadblocks

Similar to clearing mental space and knowing when you need a day for yourself, mental roadblocks can cause a serious halt to your productivity. Think of them as speed bumps, except, you don’t exactly know they are there until it’s time to sift through them. However, this time only really comes when one of them has become an issue for you.

Help yourself with mental roadblocks by becoming more mindful of what they are, and then practical about how to address them. Be painfully honest with yourself, then take the steps needed to remove the limits that roadblocks bring.

5. Evaluate Your Work-Life Balance

Taking a minute to understand what happens outside of the time that you’re productive is essential for making sense of how to use the time you spend toward it. Trouble occurs if you tend to view the two parts of your life as separate entities, as they are related.

There is no manual on achieving the right work-life balance for you. It takes time and experimentation to get to a place where what you do for work can feed into what you work for.

Becoming a more productive person is a choice, and if you’ve made it, you’re already on your way. Be strategic with your time and yield the results you’ve always wanted.
