I have always wondered how some people can achieve more, and often get time to learn new things. Staying productive helps us get things done on time and also gives us the required time to learn new things, which help us, add new skills.
Here are a few ways:
Having a to do list handy: This helps us plan, organise and finish the work we have planned to complete on time. Getting into a habit of having a to do list handy does take a couple weeks of getting used to, but once you learn to have it handy, your efficiency increases and we can get things done faster.
Have you ever tried waking up ten to fifteen minutes early: This surely helps a lot, this is the time I use to plan and add things in my to do list, making sure I finish doing it on the scheduled time. This helps us stay organised and helps us make time to do more.
Staying focused: This often can be though but with a little discipline we can learn to stay focused in whatever we are doing during that particular time. This helps us complete the work on time, scheduling a specific time, for clearing emails, returning phone calls and sending messages on the phone, helps us save a lot of time. Ignoring the unnecessary noise and distractions around, and staying focused, helps us achieve more, and gives us more time to learn new skills.
Taking time to remain informed: We all want to watch the news on the television or read the news paper, and remain informed, watching the news on television, while doing some household chores, helps us stay informed, and aware, of what is happening around. Keeping the track of the daily weather conditions helps while travelling to work or back. Listening to it on the radio or the mobile phone too is a good way to save time and get more done.
Remind yourself to take breaks: Breaks help us de stress, which helps us increase productivity, choosing a way that suites us in getting some me time, helps getting things done on time and achieve more.
Spending some time and keeping things ready the night before: Planning things the night before, lets us know what exactly has to be done the next day, and what has to be completed on a priority basis. This helps clear our minds and we get the work on time.
Simple ways help us stay productive and help us achieve more.
