When you look at highly productive people, even though they are in different industries with different workflow, they always avoid key mistakes that sabotage productivity.
Below are some few things you can start doing to become more productive.
Productivity is not about how much busywork you can cram into an hour, how organized your calendar looks, having an inbox of zero emails or having the fanciest scheduling apps, but it is about the result you produce. Productive people deliver their work to the world. They have the courage to make things happen, and they act despite their fear.
So make sure your results are moving toward your goals. Once you start focusing on your output, your Productivity will skyrocket.
Waking up in the morning and going straight to your device is a bad habit and surely reduces productivity.
Did you know that 88% of people check their phone within the first hour of the day and 55% of people check their email before going to work?
It reduces focus, productivity and motivation. Consuming information that are not necessary like social media, checking email ad responding to messages to start your day puts you in a state of reaction: Now, you are flooded with stressors and urgent tasks before you even have a chance to work on your goals.
Keep your mind focus. Don' t let any distract you from your plan for the day. Distraction can reduce productivity which is bad.
Always try to rest your body and your mind. Your mind or body can not work when it is in the state of stress. Keep yourself rested to increase productivity.
