Not enough time in the day to get everything done? Try these tips to keep calm and increase productivity.
- Having a huge to-do list can lead to task paralysis. Not everything is your #1 priority. Put three things on your list to hone your focus, and do those first.
- Checking emails every 10-minutes? It’s a distracting time-waster. Set aside two times during the day for your messages. It takes discipline, but productivity will soar. If you’re worried about appearing inefficient, set up an auto-response to let people know you’ll be in touch with them within ‘X’ number of hours.
- Congratulate yourself for small daily wins. Focusing on what you’ve accomplished rather than what’s left to do will trigger a productive, positive mindset.
- Talk to us. The hours you spend sorting (and stressing about) tax and cash flow every month could be put to much better use!
