In my last blog post, I gave you 6 tips on increasing your productivity. Here are 5 more to help you get more done.
Set a timer. Even if a task might take hours, starting will seem easier if you simply give yourself 30 minutes to get as much done as you can. A time limit seems to help many people concentrate and work better, too.
Set targets. If you have to write a weekly newsletter, tell yourself you won’t get up until you’ve written two weeks of content. Regardless of what happens, refuse to stop until you hit your target.
Delegate some of your work. The people around you are resources. When appropriate, use their time and talents wisely to get things done more quickly. This is where a VA comes in. 😉
Set a deadline. Having a specific endpoint will really help to focus your time and energy. If a task doesn’t feel necessary, chances are that it won’t get done.
Increase your speed. It sounds silly, but this can really help. Try doing everything a little faster. Walk faster, talk faster, type faster, and read faster.
Implement these tips into your life and you’ll find yourself getting more done in less time. The ultimate secret is to stay on task and not waste any time. These tips will help you do just that.
