Tips for Increasing Productivity

1. Set a Timer

Estimate the time you need to tackle different tasks and set a timer for each of your tasks. When it comes to the time limit, move on to another task first.

2. Eliminate All Distractions

Distractions include the phone, email notifications and having multiple web browsers open on the desktop.

3. Listen to Music That Boosts Productivity

Distractions should be avoided but a bit of calm music in the background can sometimes be a bit of help.

4. Find Meaning in What You Do

Enjoying what you do is the ultimate way to increase your productivity. Like the old saying goes “You never work a day in your life if you love what you do”.  

5. Prioritize your tasks ahead of time.

By listing your tasks in order of importance, you can make sure that you finish all of your most important tasks during the day.

6. Batch Similar Tasks into a Single Batch.

Tasks like blog writing, phone calls, email and errands can be grouped into a single batch. You will save time by completing similar tasks in one session.
