We all struggle with how to get more done in a day.
A lot of us seem to have it in our minds that we just have to power-through and get it done, and when we don’t we feel guilty.
That is why I took the time to write just a few critical tips in taking your productivity to THE NEXT LEVEL, so that you can be successful in this key area of life.
These 3 critical productivity hacks are GOLD.
Here they are:
- We can only ACTUALLY focus for 40 minutes.
Most of us don’t know how to take short breaks. Either we take a long break, in which case we aren’t able to regain the energy and focus we had, or we don’t stop. We continue on half heartedly until the task is “good enough.”
But is that really what being productive means?
Try this: work on whatever it is for 40 minutes straight. Then take a couple minute break letting your mind wander. This gives your brain the time to explore new ideas and get creative with what you are doing, while not putting your mind on overdrive and causing stress.
- Done is better than perfect!!!
This is something I say ALL the time, because it’s true.
Perfectionism and comparison WRECK productivity and cause us to be anything but our best, because we can’t ever finish anything, and when we can’t accomplish anything, then we feel TERRIBLE about ourselves. Do you see how the spirals downward?
So here’s what I say.
The truth is that we won’t be productive if we are crippled by our own made up standards of perfectionism.
So let’s drop the act, we aren’t perfect and we never will be. Just get it done.
If you’ve done your best with what you were given, that’s good enough! Get it done and move on to the next thing!
DO NOT let yourself go down the spiral of negative thoughts. JUST GET IT DONE.
- Discipline is key.
I would be lying if I told you that it’s easy. We all struggle with wanting to be comfortable more than we want to grow at certain times. BUT, what we need to remember is that in order to grow and accomplish our dreams, we HAVE to be okay leaving our comfort zone REGULARLY.
We have to do things we don’t want to do. We have to do things even when every part of us just doesn’t want to do it
