How to Maximize Your Productivity
Many entrepreneurs lament that there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. However, with careful management of your time you can get more done with much less effort. Here are some tips on how to maximize your productivity.
Prioritize Urgent Work
Although numerous tasks usually vie for your attention at the start of a work day, usually only a few of them fall into the category of imperative. Unfortunately, because these urgent duties are often more difficult and time-consuming than the others, they tend to get relegated to the bottom of the list below scheduling meetings, checking email, and other less important concerns. Instead, take on your biggest, most important tasks right at the start of the day when you are fresh and invigorated, and your success will give you impetus to get the rest of your work done.
Practice Time Blocking
Time blocking is a simple and effective technique that involves scheduling a specific amount of time on your calendar for each item on your to-do list. During these time blocks, concentrate on the task at hand, and don’t allow yourself to get distracted by anything else. Practice time blocking in a quiet place, turn off your phone and other devices, and inform those around you that you’re not to be disturbed.
If you try to get too many things done at once, nothing gets done well. Multitasking dissipates your concentration by causing your mind to move back and forth between various endeavors. Instead, increase your productivity by focusing on one task at a time, accomplishing it thoroughly, and then moving on to the next.
Many of the tasks that you undertake for your business can be separated into various parts of a process or system. This allows you to outsource some of the work so that you can accomplish far more by concentrating on what only you can do.
