Best Ways to Become More Productive

Productivity is one of the most important factors to become happy and successful in life.

More productivity means accomplishing more goals or progressing further on the current big goals.

Have you had days that you have felt you have achieved and progressed so much, those days you love yourself more.

Main threats to productivity are:
Laziness, Tiredness, Confusion, Lack of Focus and Concentration, Distraction, Not being healthy

Best ways to become more productive
  • No matter you're tired or not, allow yourself to rest when you go to bed at night only; during the day you should have great discipline to work towards your goals with full power and energy
  • Do the action immediately; don't think more than necessary - always set deadline for your thinking process otherwise the more you think the more confusion you will face but actions bear the real fruits
  • Set deadline for every task you have - tasks with no deadline prolong too long not because they can't be finished quicker but because there is not enough determination and focus to finish them quicker - if the deadline is missed, set a new deadline based on the changes which might have happened
  • Eliminate waste - if you can, don't do what doesn't add value - delegate to others if you can - you focus on the most valuable task
  • Listen to exciting and energetic music whenever you feel tired
  • Drink water or energy drink (not more than 1 a day) when you feel tired
  • Do exercise even if you feel too tired e.g. after work go to gym immediately - when you get there, you will find that the energy you need is already within you
  • Write down your tasks and always work through them - don't let your mind confuse you - apparently we have 60,000 thoughts a day in average. I am sure the more busy you're the more thoughts you will have so it's vital to have a proper strategy to organize our thoughts and that's by writing and prioritizing them
  • Reduce/remove distractions - if people distract you, ask them not to - if your emails distract you, discipline yourself to check your emails at a certain time only - if your phone keeps distracting you, switch it off
  • Apologize; get rid of negative thoughts and relations which are bad and keeps your mind busy - be humble, apologize, learn the lesson quickly and move on
  • Take 1 capsule of Omega 3,6,9 every day; it empowers your heart and brain functions dramatically
  • Allow yourself to have fun, see the fun in life and in people; laugh and enjoy living - this is also a secret that people see you more attractive and want to be with you more
  • Value your network of people - remember always that we need each other and we're much stronger together
