Increasing Productivity

These days everyone is being asked to work smarter and harder than ever before. There are only 24 hours in a day, so you’ll never find extra time to accomplish more. But increasing productivity can be done with some simple tactics.

Wake up early. Use the morning calm to get something important accomplished. Without the interruptions of phones and co-workers or family. You will be able to concentrate on the task at hand and get it done.

Start with something important. Get the most important task done first, while you are fresh and have maximum energy and focus.

No interruptions. They are inevitable, people don’t mean to squash your productivity when you are on a role, but that is exactly what happens. Try to minimize them. Closing the door will help you focus on whatever is in front of you.

Avoid meetings. They are a total time sucker. You can’t get out of every meeting, but be choosy. If you have to attend, find out where in the agenda it is critical for you to be there. Maybe you can pop in for only part of the meeting.

Turn off the internet. Really, you’ll survive. It is such a distraction. Schedule time without it, but also schedule internet time. That way you won’t feel penalized.
