5 Tips for Making Your Day More Productive

 

I’ve talked before about the importance of having the right morning routine—It’s not enough to have a to-do list these days. What we really need to do is think about when you’re going to do things according to highest and best use of our time

 

Here are Five Actions that you can take to make your day more productive!

 

Plan your weeks in advance. Let’s start with the big picture: You should begin each week with a clear agenda, including the major projects you need to complete or commitments you need to uphold. Write down what your main areas of focus need to be each day and stick to it.

 

Set daily goals. It’s good to have long-term goals, but I also recommend having three to five main things you want to achieve each day. Review those items as your day begins, and block it off in your schedule. It’s always wise to structure your day around the biggest goals.

 

Schedule uninterrupted work time. You can’t simply hope for a block of time to do creative work and get things done. You actually put it on your schedule, then turn off your phone and desktop alerts so that you can make it happen. Many studies suggest the  best time to schedule uninterrupted work time is in the morning.

 

Schedule administrative tasks. Checking email, listening to voicemails, updating your company’s social media—these “little” things can really eat into your productive time. That’s why I recommend setting aside one or two times each day where you focus on these things—maybe in the morning and then again before you leave the office.

 

Plan meetings for the afternoon. If you have your creative time in the morning, then you can save administrative tasks—including meetings and conference calls—for the afternoon, which is when a lot of us start to lose a little steam anyway.

 

Those are just some of the action steps that you can take to make your day more productive!
