Do you think that other people have more time than you do or they have supernatural powers? In fact, super-productive people know how to manage their time wisely and know how to increase productivity at work. Use the following tips and your personal productivity will increase and you’ll feel much better.
- To increase your productivity, you do not have to start working 17 hours per day!
Instead of ‘working more’ you need to work ‘smarter’. By increasing the time to solve a specific problem, we increase our efficiency only in the short term. After all, if one day we work hard for 15 hours without any breaks, tomorrow we will not reach even the standard eight-hour norm.
- Gradually increase working hours at the peak of high work efficiency
Once you learn how to keep your productivity ratio at a high level, try to increase your productivity by minimally increasing the amount of working time, devoting time to “real work”. So, you will build for yourself an optimal work schedule that helps increase personal efficiency, and not empty “sitting out” of working time.
- No extra control (Tip for managers)
Micromanagement is a bad idea when the leader checks every step of employees. Excessive checks, on the one hand, make the employee feel under the gun, which will have a particularly negative impact on creative work, and on the other hand, they remove responsibility from the employee, since they will check on him anyway. Trust employees, they can successfully complete the task without your constant intervention.
- Add some sports exercises
According to research, exercises improve mood, health and as a result, help to be more productive. This effect can last up to 12 hours. So, if you want to have a productive day, spend the first 20 minutes of your morning exercising.
- Turn off notifications!
Turn off email notifications, phone calls, and pop-ups. Each notification distracts you from an important task. Therefore, eliminating these kinds of distractions is an important step if you want to focus your energy. Free yourself from it! But you don’t need to check your phone every 5 minutes, spend a minimum of time on it. In most cases, you will find that you haven’t missed anything. And it would be better to spend this time on tasks.
