The digital ecosphere is chock full of educational posts to help keep you on time, on task and being productive, offering up a variety of viewpoints or suggestions but it is up to YOU to find what works and put it to work. All the tips, tools and sites are of no value unless you actually take action. We all want more out of our days, but simply wishing and reading won’t magically set you on fire.
“ Progress is the activity of today and the assurance of tomorrow. ” Ralph Waldo Emerson
You may already have a few time management or productivity hacks that are your favorites. The ones that keep you motivated and producing or….. you struggle with time and getting things done. The day zips by, the hours keep ticking, yet nothing really seems to be getting done. You want change. You crave the feeling of accomplishment, but you aren’t sure where to start or what to do first.
Set aside your trepidation and bewilderment.
You can instigate change. You CAN make a difference and become more productive, IF you want to. It’s up to you. Once you modify your mindset and gain clarity that you are more than ready, take baby steps, testing out a few tips and systems. You will soon discover what works best for you and your personality.
We all work differently.
No two people absorb or process information in the same manner. Just because Mark wakes at 5 AM to kickstart his day, it doesn’t mean that it is the best time for you. You have your own working hours; the times when you are most productive. Get a handle on it and schedule those hours for some of the more difficult projects.
- Find what works
- Embrace it
- Create a routine
- Stick to it
