Productivity Tips Everyone Can Adopt.

Living in a world like ours, especially in a country like Nigeria, where the lifestyle can wear you out and leave you feeling unproductive and depressed. You must know the importance of finding the best routine that helps you be productive and get the work done. Here are a few productivity tips everyone can adopt to focus better and produce more results without feeling burnt out:

Set realistic goals daily.

 Goals get you more energised to put in more effort while realistic goals help you achieve more. You don’t want to go on building castles in the air, set goals based on things that are visible and achievable within a set time. Talking about set times, you should give your goals deadlines.  

Being able to take each day as it comes will keep you motivated and on track. 

Go over your week every Friday.

A lot of times, we are too relieved that the weekend is here that we forget to review how good or bad the past week was and how we can do better next week. The best way to be less swamped with work is to find better ways to do it.

 Take out time to process what you have done all week without stressing out about what you have to do next week. Find out what you had planned to do if you finally did them and how long it took you, that way you can manage your time better.  

Say NO to procrastination. 

 One major enemy of productivity is procrastination and a great number of us struggle with it. 

 The best way to beat procrastination is to just do it. Just get to work, unless you get started, nothing is going to get done. The fact is, the hardest part of anything is starting even though the most important thing is taking action. 

However, Kevin Systrom, Co-Founder of Instagram said, “If you don’t want to do something, make a deal with yourself to do at least five minutes of it. After five minutes, you’ll end up doing the whole thing.”

Create a routine.

It’s important to have specific routines that keep you motivated and help you stay well organised. 

 Having a routine helps you know what to do per time and makes scheduling easier. And routines develop into habits and this might just be the right habit you need to develop. 

Take Breaks.

 Studies show that regular breaks such as a short walk have an important effect on your productivity level and rejuvenate you.  You should take time off often and be creative with how you want to spend it.
