Get More Done By Leveraging The 6 Paths To Increased Productivity
It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in; in today’s business landscape, we’re all trying to do more in less time. There are countless articles you can read on efficiency tips and tricks, but the truth is that there are only 7 ways to get more done in your day.
As obvious as this sounds, you’d be surprised at how much more you can accomplish when you turn the lazy parts of your day into productive ones. Block social media accounts from your work computer. Establish boundaries for social conversations at the office. Turn off tech distractions. By focusing on working harder, you’ll inevitably see a boost in your production rates.
There are only a certain number of hours in the day, and there’s a limited amount of time where your brain will function well enough to conduct business. Learning to be more efficient in your position allows you to literally get more done in less time. It’s about establishing the proper processes and systems, so you never waste a minute.
The most common way people try to get more done is to work longer hours. The secret to incorporating this in a sustainable way is to arrive a little early and leave a little late. Even if it’s an extra 30 minutes on each end of your day, you’ll likely avoid the brunt of the traffic and arrive at your destination around the same time. Think what you can accomplish with an extra hour each day!
A well-planned team strategically combines skill sets, so that each team member can specialize in a particular task. When each individual contributes his or her particular part, the whole project takes a fraction of the time.
Do More of the Important Things
Leverage the 80/20 rule, which states that 20% of your effort is responsible for 80% of your results. Focus your efforts on doing more of the important things, which will drive more results.
Cluster Your Tasks
Shifting gears is one of the greatest wastes of time in business. By grouping tasks that are similar in nature, you’ll spend less time getting in the right mindset and more time getting the work done.
If you feel as though there aren’t enough hours in the day, you aren’t alone. The good news is that the skills associated with maximizing your productivity can be learned.
