Tips To Being More Productive

Everyone wishes they had more hours in a day. If you were granted that, would you get more done or would you use those additional hours to spend more time on Facebook or LinkedIn or involved in some other activity that didn't further your business or your life?

Here are some tips that I share with my consulting clients to help them get more done in the office:

  • Work on smaller tasks first. Finishing off ten small tasks will give you the momentum of having completed something and that will spur you onward to complete complex, larger tasks. 
  • Before you leave the office at the end of the day, put together a to-do list for the following day. Knowing what your plan is for the day ahead will help you jump in as soon as you step foot in the office. Having a to-do list will keep you on task and will also offer you a way to track what you've completed. 
  • Give yourself permission to take a break. Stepping away from your desk and even getting out of your office will give you a much needed respite and will help you come back to face work with a refreshed, relaxed attitude.  

I'd love to hear where your productivity problem areas are. Leave a comment below.
