Welcome back to my itsy bitsy corner of the web! Or if your new here, thanks for checking out my blog. You can find more about me here!
Today’s post is all about how to boost productivity and get more done in less time.
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.
2. Eliminate All Distractions
I recommend putting your phone on airplane mode or turning off your notifications. If you’re using a computer to work on a project close out all the other applications. Try to go to a quiet place or alert the people around you to not bother you.
3. Listen to Music
Distractions should be avoided, but sometimes a bit of music in the background can help you focus.
Of course, it doesn’t need to be the Hamilton cast recording on full blast, but a bit of Beethoven may do you some good. If you’re not a fan of classical music, there are plenty of relaxing, lofi study playlists on youtube. The songs are really nice and it does help you focus.
4. Take a break from technology
The Internet has become one of the number one distraction. To increase your productivity, try to do as much of your work offline as possible.
I find it easier to brainstorm with pen and paper than on a notes app, because not only is it relaxing, it’s easier to stay focused on.
5. Just Start
Often times, starting is the hardest part. People often wait for the perfect time to start a project, but usually, there is no perfect time, and they are really just procrastinating and they never start.
Once you get started, you will quickly get into a rhythm that could last for hours!
The last thing I have for you guys is a little printable to-do list/ planner. This is great for jotting down things to do and planning your day out.
Thanks for reading this post, I hope the tips helped! What are some ways you stay productive? What projects are you working on? How do you manage your time?
