The phrase time is money is more true now than ever before. It's not enough to simply have a job, an office or organization to work in, and get a paycheck and the end of the week anymore. A workplace, however large or small has to be driven by efficiency and achievement. Less productive inputs and lower efficiency levels affect the business and jeopardize its survival. Our productivity is directly linked to our profits. With that in mind, here are ways to make your weeks much more productive.
Obviously, you need to schedule down time. Wherever you are, try to be fully engaged all the time.
When you’re working, do your best, then schedule some time each day and on the weekends to stay far away from work. In order to be more productive, you have to have a break from time to time and your brain does too. Start early because the sooner you get started, the more you can get done. Learn to be an early riser and take care of personal issues and breakfast before you begin. Fewer distractions at your workplace can enhance your productivity drastically. Don't forget to plan to be productive.
A productive week starts on Monday morning, as long as you’ve got a good plan in place. Things will always come up unexpectedly, but having a schedule can help. Also, it’s been proven that if you have two things to get done, completing them one at a time will not only allow you to finish sooner, it’ll also increase the precision of your work. You should focus on a single task whenever it's possible.
Sometimes, comparing yourself to others doesn't have to be bad idea. Play the comparison game in order to maintain your level of motivation. Compare your weekly calendar or productivity plan to others’ and learn from their best practices. Many of my best habits have been acquired from other people’s methods through simple observation. Don't seek perfection. Besides laziness, of course, striving for excellence and obsessive perfectionism is the ultimate enemy of productivity. Forget about perfection and try to focus on completing the tasks. In order to keep your concentration high and take the best of it, work in intervals. Work for 25 minutes, then give yourself a break for five minutes. That approach can help you accomplish more in the long run.
