3. Successful People Focus on being productive. Not being busy.
Successful people switch their focus from "being busy" to being productive! Eliminate a lot of your "busy" work and you can accomplish more, see tangible results, and have time for fun! Here are 3 ideas that may help:
1. Have a To-Do list that MUST get done today! This list is of 3 to 8 items that will move you closer to accomplishing the goal you want to achieve.
2. Single Tasking. Forget your multi-tasking skills when you focus on productive activities! This means that while you are working on a particular task, for that duration of time, you work on that task and that task alone. If it’s important to you, if it adds value to your long-term goals, takes you closer to fulfilling that dream, then give it the attention it deserves.
3. Keep a Productivity Journal. List your main life goals, yearly goals, weekly goals, etc. As you write down what you MUST get done, comment about how it went, did you finish everything? What more can you do? Look for the patterns. Are there particular times in the day when you feel more productive?
A productivity journal serves two purposes. At the time of writing, it gives you immediate awareness of what you should be focusing on, and what you achieved. It’s there in black and white, and you are writing it down, so there is no room for excuses and no avoiding it.
The second purpose it serves is an analysis tool. The data you gather today, facts and figures and your emotional state, is what you can use tomorrow to be aware of how productivity works for you.
