Top Tips for Becoming More Productive
Top Tips for Becoming More Productive
Unless you happen to be a sloth, everyone wants to be more productive. Productivity is one of the keys to personal and career success. The problem is, many people just aren’t willing to do what it takes to become more productive. Thus, being productive is easier said than done. However, if you really want to make changes, here are some bad habits you need to let go of.
Do you like to surf the Web? Of course, who doesn’t? Unfortunately, this is a huge time-killer for a lot of people especially if you do it every time you get an impulse. When you’re busy working on something important and you stop for a quick “surf”, you lose valuable time and you become less productive.
Is it time for another meeting? Meetings seem important on the surface, but how many meetings are really that useful? They typically take up too much of your valuable time, which you could be using to do more important things, like actual work. To be more productive, set a time limit for your meetings and stick to it.
We all love email and it’s a great way to get work done. However, email can be a huge distraction, as well. When you’re working on something important don’t let a new email distract you from your current task. In most cases, the majority of your messages can wait.
Avoid being a perfectionist. If you’re preoccupied with getting everything exactly right, then chances are you will never complete any projects. In some cases, you might not even start them. No one is perfect and you don’t have to be perfect, either.
It may not be easy, but letting go of some of your bad habits will help you become more productive.
