There are so many things that you want and must do, but the 24 hours a day just aren’t enough. Sounds familiar? Well, you aren’t the only one. Entrepreneurs around the world wish to have more time a day, yet it isn’t possible. What is possible, however, is to use the given time more effectively. The best way to do so is to become more productive!
Easier said than done! Hacking productivity isn’t simple, yet it isn’t a rocket science either. If you want to become more productive, you don’t have to start with making drastic changes at once. Follow these three effective tips every day and soon you will be able to see great results!
Trial-Error or Find Out What Works For You
You as an entrepreneur may have many things in common with other entrepreneurs and leaders, which is understandable. You all have similar struggles, face similar obstacles and share personality traits that are common for the people with entrepreneurial spirit. Yet, all of you have different personalities.
In order to understand what works for you and what doesn’t in terms of being more productive, you need to explore different variants and scenarios. Do small changes in the way you handle your work schedule on a daily and weekly basis and evaluate the outcomes. Your productivity is a result of the way you think about and approach your daily tasks. Discover your personal formula for the best results!
Take Time Off Without to Feel Guilty About it
If you are a hustler, you probably think that taking time off is for losers, who don’t want to succeed bad enough. Well, it might not be true. Taking time for rest and recreation is one of the best ways to avoid burnout in the long run. Stepping out of the office for half an hour a day will help you to clear your head.
Take a walk in the nearby park or play a table tennis game with your co-workers or browse social media for while – do whatever you want with your time off. The important part here is not to feel guilty about having this free time. Once you return to the desk and get back to work, you will be fascinated by the energy and focus you have.
Push That Deadline Forward
Now you may find this tip a bit of an odd one, yet it is extremely effective – try to push your deadlines forward. If you have to get a project done by 20th, write down in your schedule an earlier date – the 15th, for example. By seeing this deadline coming closer, you will mobilize yourselves to actually start getting things done. This will allow you to have time for evaluation and to do some changes if you need to.
Try going over your schedule every evening before you leave the office and see what you can push forward. This approach will help you get more organized, more disciplined and overall will improve your productivity.
