There are many ways to be more productive, but I love to share the best hacks with you. And if you feel there are some ways better, email me!
THE 7 BEST PRODUCTIVITY HACKS
1. Your 3 Most Impactful Actions
Start your day by working on the 3 Most Impactful Actions of that day, and you’ll feel amazing! You get so much more done, and you take aligned action.
2. Set a deadline
Have you ever wondered why you get so much more done before going on a holiday? It’s because you have a fixed deadline, and you get super focused on what needs to happen. Use this to your advantage.
If it’s not on the calendar, it’s not happening. Yes, that also includes personal matters. So put it in the dairy. Don’t like planning too much and rather be spontaneous? Plan the must-do’s and plan to leave time open for the rest.
4. Time block
Block time off to work on specific business items or tasks. For example, Monday is reserved for writing. Tuesday and Thursday for coaching. Friday is coaching and working on my business. Designate time.
5. Take a break
Yes! Feeling stuck or tired? Take a break, and you’ll come back refreshed. As a direct consequence, your productivity will rise.
Group recurring activities include emails, phone calls, content creation, and blog writing. This works wonderfully. Check out the guide to batching here.
7. Stop disruptions
Switch off notifications, put your phone on airplane mode, and tell people you can’t be disturbed for a certain amount of time. But unfortunately, each distraction takes you 23 minutes to get back into your original task.
Bonus – your health is your wealth
Take care of you. Your health determines your energy and your productivity. So get a good night’s sleep, exercise, and eat (healthy). Don’t skip lunch.
WHY EVEN THE BEST PRODUCTIVITY HACK WILL NOT WORK
Did you know that productivity hacks themselves do nothing? Yes, they make you more productive, BUT they don’t make you work less. Instead, you’ll need to make productivity hacks work for you by determining goals, setting priorities, and taking aligned action.
I gave a presentation about this today. And it’s a topic I love to talk about. So reach out if you struggle with working less; I can help.
