Five Tips to Maximize Productivity in Your Daily Life

by Alexa

Ever have those days when you just get in a funk? You feel like there is so much to be done that you don’t even know where to start. Everybody has those days. Sometimes those days turn into weeks and the next thing you know you are in an unproductive, unmotivated rut. Feeling as though there will never be enough time for you to do what you want and need to do

Rest assured, you will never be able to do everything, but you are perfectly capable of getting the most important things done and the result is an increased sense of confidence and self-fulfillment. Follow these five tips and you will drastically improve your productivity.

  1. Start with the Most Important Tasks. This first step is crucial, because face it, you are not a superhero. There are only 24 hours in each day and you have to decide what task you will dedicate your time to. For example at work, what activity is most important? What boosts your overall quality of work and makes you feel accomplished for the day? At home, what needs to be done or who do you need to spend time with? Do you have a kid struggling in school? Then make helping your child with homework one of your musts.

  2. Make Your List. We have already established that there is only so much time in a day. That is why the most important things need to make it to your list. Write down the five most important things you need to do for the day. Keep your list at a minimum. The last thing you want to do is overload yourself with busy work. Remember, you are here to accomplish the important stuff.

  3. Execute Your Plan. Once you have your list complete it’s time to make your game plan. Go after those tasks you have on that list and don’t stop until you’ve wiped them all out. Once you finish something, cross it off that list. It’s an amazing feeling when you know that you have accomplished everything you had set out to do for the day.

  4. Know Your Limits. Nobody is perfect. We all have days where we just want to give up. Give yourself a break every now and then, but never give up. Remember you are only one person, you are capable of great things but you cannot do everything.

  5. Rinse and Repeat. Make your list making, priority tackling, and goal accomplishing an everyday habit. After a couple days of following the list you will get in a groove and your productivity will spike. You will realize that you are capable of getting all the important things in life done with time to spare.

It’s not rocket science, nor is it break through time management skills. But by simply focusing on the most important tasks on hand, you will be getting things done that actually benefit you. You are the one living your life. You decide what’s important and then you set out to do it. Following these five easy steps will make your life more productive and leave you feeling like a better person.
