Want To Be More Productive? 6 Things To Consider

    Want to be more productive but not sure how? Whether you are working or job seeking or both, using the following tips will help you bridge the gap between where you are right now and where you want to be in the future.


1. Time Management

Choose the best part of your day and use it wisely. Time management is a catch all phrase for planning but without it very little gets done. I believe we must create our life and that goes with how and what we spend our time on.
2. Exercise
Not only will you look and feel better, but you’ll also have a sense of accomplishment, which will create momentum in others areas. There are so many benefits to exercise and I’m a huge fan. Knowing yourself will help you engage the right activity at the right time of day.
There are no excuses for not exercising. It is the single most important thing you can do for your health. It will also propel you forward in your work life and job search activities because you will feel good about yourself.
3. Being Reactive
Living in a non-stop world these days can cause havoc on your health, relationships, and productivity. If you are someone that does whatever comes up and jumps from activity to activity, then chances are you aren’t being very productive.
4. Priority List
It’s a game changer. Either you run the day or the day runs you. Writing out a priority list on things that are most important to you right now will help you to stay focused on what you want and off of what you don’t want. You’ve developed the criteria for making decisions and your life flows better because you’re connected to what you want.
5. Setting Boundaries
It is necessary to set boundaries with people because, it helps protect energy and mood and benefits your time. For example, not taking phone calls in the morning. Also choosing to work from inspiration- not obligation and this helps eliminate time spent doing things you don’t want to do and opens up time for activities.
6. Commuting And Traffic
Can be such a huge productivity killer. People spend up to 40 hours every week stuck in traffic. Check out this infographic from InterCall entitled What’s A Traffic Jam Worth that explains the time and money spent stuck in traffic.
Do the research and see if there are ways that you can obtain the same results through an online meeting, a phone call or web conference. Can you work from home? Plan what you will do to make your time in the car productive? Can you take another route? These are all really valuable ways to reduce your time held hostage in traffic.
