Do you want to end each day feeling like you've accomplished everything you set out to do? Here are 12 strategies to boost your output exponentially:
- Set productivity targets
Be clear on what exactly you want to achieve.
- Maintain a work environment conducive to productivity
If you feel at home, you will be more inspired to get things done.
- Have an organized workspace
If you have a messy workspace, you will feel disorganized and sluggish.
- Put first things first
Put the important things first before anything else.
- Time box your tasks
Time boxing refers to putting your tasks within fixed time slots.
- Have a separate list for incoming tasks
Use a single list for urgent tasks, and another for other tasks.
- Upgrade your skills
Your limitations in output come from limitations in your skill level.
- Know your motivation triggers
When were the times when you felt inspired? How can you integrate this into your daily life to reinforce your motivation?
- Utilize time pockets
Time pockets are the little bits of time you have in between one event to the next -- waiting for buses, waiting for appointments to start. Have some ready activities for these.
- Hold yourself accountable
Progress tracking is essential to know how you are doing.
- Wake up early
If you are up before most of the world, you will be motivated to maintain that lead.
- Remember To Rest
It's about quality of work produced, not quantity of hours spent.
