5 Tips To Increase Productivity

1. Allocate 20% of your day – between 1.5 to 2 hours – to working on your most important objectives. If you don’t do this, you will find that the really important tasks somehow never get finished when they should.

2. Tackle the hardest things first. All of us like to do what’s easy, its human nature, no one wants to do the hard things, especially not first… But you must get into the hard stuff – and the best time to get stuck into it is first up, when you can give it all you’ve got.

3. Have a maximum of 3 major things on your to do list at a time, any more than 3 is asking for failure. Set your priorities according to what needs to be done asap, what is time sensitive ? what can wait a few hours? what have you been putting of? It is always a good idea to tackle tasks in order of priority.

4. At the beginning of each week, or day, or even month…make a list of your goals, try to refer to your list regularly, adding things that come up and taking away tasks that no longer need your attention, also make sure you stay on track. A whiteboard is a very visible and convenient tool for keeping this list going or a portable list you can carry, whatever works best for you.

5. Group ALL of your similar activities together, if you need to make a bunch of phone calls set a side one part of the day; send all emails at set times, try to aim for no more then 3 email sessions daily, also use one of these to deal with all incoming mail.

In addition try to notice where and when time is slipping away from you… do you drift off and lose focus midday? do you get distracted by the internet and reading blogs? is instant messaging your downfall? once you know what is distracting you and holding you back from being productive you can work on eliminating the distraction.
