6 characteristics that you needed to get the job done:
1. Wake up early
Add more productive hours to your life by rising up early to begin the day’s activities. Beginning your day with some tasks will leave you with less work to do later on that day. Set alarm to wake you up very early each day. Aside adding more productive hours to your life, your brain will be fresh and your concentration will be extremely high, so that you can bring out the best in you.
2. Have a to-do list
Have a plan to follow by writing the tasks you want to perform each day. The list will help to ensure no task will skip your mind. Ensure your to-do list is very practical. Don’t overload the list with tasks that you know you can’t do. Since everyone has a different psychological way of handling things prioritize first then decide:
- do you need a shorter list; if so start with the easy tasks.
- do you feel overwhelmed by the difficult things; if so start with the harder tasks
3. Shorten your list:
– Begin with the hard tasks
- Start with the tasks that appear most difficult.
- When you start with the difficult ones, you will feel so relieved after completing it and hence, it makes you even more productive.
OR, depending on your personality:
– Begin with the easy tasks
This will give you more time to work on the hard stuff when the list is significantly shorter.
4. Take away all distracting items
These time-wasters include; mobile phones, magazines, computer, and many others. It is hard to work fast when you get distracted.
5. Reject unnecessary offers that may keep you away from your work
Learn to say, “I’m sorry I can’t go with you now, I have a few things I want to get done.” The key word her is WANT not NEED. You want to shorten your list.
6. Focus your energy on one task
Don’t be switching from task to task. Multitasking slows you down while giving you the impression that you are getting more than one thing done at a time. Each time you multitask and your brain switches to a new task, you will have to retrace some things the moment you come back to your previous work. Devote your time to one task and do it well.
7. Always set deadlines for your tasks
Create a sense of urgency within your mind. Remind yourself that you don’t want to work on your to-do list all day. Develop the habit of working according to your deadline. And if your job was bigger than you estimated, time wise, set a deadline. Make sure you complete that task before starting another.
