Everyone knows that personal productivity is essential to success. But being productive is often easier said than done. Especially in the environment of the pandemic when many people are working from home. If you want to become more productive but aren’t sure how to begin, try following these three easy tips to get you started.
1.Have A Plan
It’s extremely difficult to be productive if you aren’t sure exactly what you have to do. This is why you need to start your path to enhanced personal productivity by having a plan. This can be a plan for the day, the week, or even the month, whatever suits your work style.
It’s best to make the goals small and achievable daily—this will help you stay focused and on track. It will also help keep you motivated as you will feel accomplished every time you cross something off the list.
2. Don’t Give In To Distractions
This is a tough one. Distractions come in all shapes and sizes, everything from technology (your phone) to food and even your friends or coworkers. The best way to start being more productive is by finding an area you can work in with little if any, distractions. This could mean removing the TV from your office or finding somewhere to work that isn’t the kitchen.
Then you should commit to not picking up your phone or checking your email for a specified period of time while you work. You’ll find this helps tremendously with keeping you on task and preventing you from wasting time on something you don’t need to waste time on.
3. Take Breaks
Numerous studies have shown that your brain works most effectively when it takes frequent breaks from a difficult task. Some people like to specify and time these breaks using a timer for maximum productivity. But you don’t have to rigidly schedule breaks to benefit from them. Even just stepping away from your desk for five minutes because you’re frustrated at something can do wonders for your productivity levels, as well as your mental health.
Although it can be difficult to stay on task, it’s quite easy to boost your productivity simply by having a plan, avoiding distractions, and taking adequate breaks. Employ all three tips in your work activities, and you’ll likely be surprised by how much your personal productivity increases!
