We’re all looking for ways to boost our productivity. The good news is that it’s an achievable goal. Here are a few proven strategies to help you get more done in less time:
- Plan out tomorrow’s schedule tonight. When we write down what we intend to do, we’re far more likely to actually do it.
- Plan your work around your internal clock. This means aligning the tasks that require the most brain power with your energy peaks throughout the day.
- Avoid being 100% booked. If your calendar looks full, deliberately schedule a time to do nothing. You can use this time as a buffer between meetings to tackle unexpected tasks that crop up during the day.
- Develop rituals for different kinds of work. This may mean doing a certain task in a particular workspace or at a particular time of the day.
Try at least one of these strategies and notice any differences in your productivity.
