6 Sky-Rocketing Productivity Hacks

Does your workload intimidate you? Do you feel that the task at hand is just impossible to accomplish? Don’t worry as you are not the only one faced with this dilemma and a lot of people out there are sailing in the same boat. How an individual prevents himself from procrastinating depends on his perspective and what best suits his situation. Hard work and smart work go hand in hand and for you to be able to achieve more in less time; you need to plan your day accordingly. Here are a few surefire ways to boost your productivity.

1. Rising with the sun

Peace, calmness, and serenity in the environment can do wonders for your mental health and cognitive abilities. Waking up at 5 a.m. and pretending to start your work like you do at 9 a.m. will make you realize the change in productivity levels when you’re working with no-one around and distraction levels at a bare minimum. It is known that you are most productive in the first two hours after you wake up from your slumber. So why not capitalize on it.

2. Spend time doing nothing (focus on relaxation)

Here we are talking about being more productive and also telling you to spend some idle time? Contradictory, much? What we need to realize here is the purpose behind letting your mind be free and wander without any unnecessary worry of the future or qualms about the past. This might help you unwind and refocus on your priorities and be able to deliver your best in the minimum possible time. Cluttering your mind with irrelevant and too much information can lead to inefficiency. De-stress by giving time to your hobby or take a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood park.

3. Multi-tasking does not make you a pro

If you feel you are a superman or superwoman and you can handle and accomplish several tasks at one time, you are highly mistaken. Trying to juggle everything at one go reduces your concentration span and stresses you out, which may lead to a nervous breakdown. Hence you need to focus more on things that require immediate and special attention and for that, you need to consciously train your mind to be able to do so. That’s more like having laser-focus. Dedicate to specific projects and once that is completed then move on to the next one.

4. Prioritize work and set deadlines for each goal

Be clear about your priorities and set small, realistic, and manageable goals for the new future. Once you will start achieving those goals it will automatically serve as a driving force to move on to bigger goals. You know yourself best and to what extent you can stretch yourself. Channel energy where it is more effective and have a clear vision in mind when stating your goals for the day so that by the end of the day high level of productivity is attained.

5. Turn off Wi-fi/notifications

Distractions are abundant but you need to know how to tackle them and pay attention to very selective information that comes your way. The biggest distraction nowadays is social media. Hence, the most convenient option is to alienate yourself and get off the Wi-Fi zone. Having certain times of the day when you are not open to notifications and you will see the amount of work that you get done in that span of time.

6. Learn to delegate

Maximum productivity is achieved when you focus on your core competencies and do not let the workload overwhelm you. Outsource and assign work to your subordinates and only commit to that work which you are sure you will be able to accomplish in that time frame. Do not over-stress yourself, it will affect the work you are best at.

In order to measure the level of productivity achieved over time, you can always compare the desired goals with the actual outcome and make amendments accordingly.
