What we need to do is to find ways to increase our productivity so that we can achieve more but where we do not have to spend all our time trying to do this. Try these methods and see how it is possible to do more by spending less time than you thought you had to.
These are methods that I have adopted in my own life and I have found them to be very effective.
Learn to prioritize and focus
Most people take on a lot more than they can manage and then they try to do them altogether. They think that by multitasking they are achieving more and saving time. They think this is the best way to work because they believe they are accomplishing more. Today you will find people constantly doing 5 different things at the same time on their smartphones. They are very pleased with how many things they are doing at the same time. But actually this multitasking is totally counter-productive. When you try to do too many things, you do not do justice to any. What you need to do is prioritise your work and then do them one at a time. Focus on the task you have at hand, give it time and your efforts and you will see that you can do it very well. Finish one task and then move to the next. You will take less time than if you were to multitask and try all at the same time.
Take a break off and on
Your mind and body cannot function like a machine. Take a break from work off and on – use the time to relax or meditate or to do something you enjoy. You will then come back to your work feeling refreshed and with greater energy and enthusiasm. You can focus better and do a better job than if you were to work without any break.
Set time aside for your own interests
Do not make your work your entire life. Not only will it make you boring, it will lower your productivity. You have to balance your work life and your personal life. When you have time to pursue your hobbies or spend time with your friends and family, you will feel energized and can contribute more in the workplace.
Figure out the best time to work
Everybody has a certain time of day when they can work best. Some can do it at night, others are more productive during the day, at different times. Figure out what is the best time for you and use that time to work hard. You can spend other times doing less important things.
Have fun, let your hair down
Enjoy life – whether it is your personal life or your professional life. Have fun, let your hair down. When you enjoy what you are doing, you can do it better. Also having fun usually leads to higher motivation and productivity.
