Simple Steps to Increase Productivity
If you are procrastinating, lacking clarity, or resisting prioritization, you need to take immediate action. A great way to start is by asking yourself every 15 minutes, “Now what needs to be done?” By only focusing on what needs to be done right away, you will feel less overwhelmed and your productivity will increase.
Here are a few simple actions and tips you can implement today to regain focus and increase productivity:
Create a plan for your day and week and focus on completing one task at a time. Keep asking yourself, “Now what needs to be done?” You will be amazed by how much you can accomplish by choosing to focus on one task at a time.
Eliminate distractions and noise.
Give yourself more time for creative, innovative, and business building activities.
Implement specific, measurable tasks. It's important to ensure you can measure and account for the tasks you have completed.
Clarify and align your goals, values and commitments. If you are working on tasks that are out of alignment with your goals and values, you won’t produce the results you want. Take the time to write down your goals and ensure that what you're focusing your time and energy on aligns with those goals.
