Imagine, you close every day with a satisfied sigh, because you know that you were so productive that you completed everything you needed to.
Prepare a to-do list for the next day each night
When you prepare for a to – do list it gets you organized, focused and rewarded with feelings of satisfaction when you are able to check off things that you have achieved. In my opinion, everyone should use them! Making a list of things to do every night means you do not waste time looking for something to do at the beginning of the day. The use of to-do lists is about to start when it comes to increasing productivity. If you really want to increase your production, you can reach the finish line with two productivity hacks.
Measure your results, not your time
- One way to do this is to adjust the way you measure productivity. When you evaluate yourself based on what you actually do, rather than the time you need to do something, you will notice a difference in the way you work. For example, if you want to finish a large project, try to resolve it. Another way to measure what you do every day is a “finished list,” a record of all the tasks you do in a day. A list of everything you do in a day can surprise you how motivated you are to do a job that counts and stays focused so that you do more. Focus on the measurement based on the results, not the time for the task, and you will certainly have more work.
Track where you waste time
- If you’re having trouble being productive, it’s tempting to change your routine or try new solutions before you discover the real problem. The first step in becoming more productive is to identify your regular routine. Start with what you do every morning to get ready for work. You may find that you spend time on things like choosing your clothes, something you could do the day before. Next: Follow how you spend your time during the day and look for patterns. A tool like Rescue Time can help you. Maybe you end up on Facebook too often. Once you know what your time costs or delay you, you begin to make specific changes to those habits.

Create habits to help you work
- If you do not have an action plan, you tend to procrastinate and waste time in the morning. One way to overcome this is to create a routine that tells your brain and your body that it’s time to work. Your routine can be as easy as your daily ride or you can have a coffee on the way to work. Other ways to get in a spirit of working condition you can sit at your desk or workplace, turn off the phone or put it away, stretching, or breakfast. You could even make an album or playlist that makes you want to work and listen to it as part of your routine. The same technique works on weekends. Although you might be tempted by your routine to be completely absorbed in your routines are not a sign of boring, regimented people. Routines are a sign of people who have goals and have found the best way to achieve their goals.
