4. Draft A ‘To Do’ List Every day
Something that I am used to doing now is making a list of tasks to accomplish every day. Not only does it give you an idea of what to do first and what to do last, but it also works as a tool to stay away from distractions.
When you know what you need to do in one day, you’ll realize that you don’t have much time for distractions. Trust me, this will help you in completing your work on time and that will improve your productivity very much.
5. The Hardest Task Must Be Accomplished First
What most of us are fond of doing is delaying or preserving the toughest task for the last thing in the day. It’s safe to say that doing this really harms your productivity. This is because the hardest task will consume the most amount of time which will harm your productivity.
And if something is easy for you to do, it won’t take you much time to accomplish. So, the easiest tasks must be accomplished first and then you will be able to spend the time you saved on the hardest tasks. This will help you a lot in improving your productivity.
6. Multitasking Is A Bad Idea
It’s a very common belief that if you have been working for a long time, you develop a habit of doing many things at once. And this helps you by accomplishing many tasks in less amount of time. Well, this statement is true, however, there is a very high probability of mistakes in this method.
You will complete a lot of tasks in less time but you will end up exhausting yourself. Doing this really harms your productivity a lot by making you somewhat incapable of doing any extra or surprise tasks. So, we must accomplish all the tasks one by one to grow our productivity at an accelerating rate.
