Boost your Concentration
We all know the problem of lacking productivity and concentration. A lot of work to do, many goals and the intention to get it all done. At the end we get easily distracted and waste most of our precious time. Today we will show you 5 ways to boost your productivity and get things done!
1. More Productivity with the Pareto principle (80/20)
It's a simple principle with a big outcome. 80% of the value of a task comes with 20% effort. Focus on the 20% and try to get as much done as possible! Also focus on tasks which requires less time than others! You will be more productive and get faster results. Faster results are a major key to success.
2. Isolation - Hustle-Mode activated
Isolation? Yes! It can help you to focus on your tasks without getting disturbed. It doesn't mean you have to hide in a cave or go to the library. Just find a spot where you can't get distracted easily and focus on your work. Put your phone away, remove any other distraction and start to hustle.
3. Productivity ToDo-List
We personally recommend you to do a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly ToDo / Goal-List. You probaly asking yourself why, right?
So actually it's pretty simple. When you define Goals / ToDo's with a deadline you are 100% more likely to achieve them. You know exactly where you want to be.
Define smart goals
Define smart and reachable goals / ToDo's. We all have wishes and goals in life, but what is the difference between those two? A goal is a wish with a deadline.
For example - you want to start a business. That's how your ToDo-list could be looking like:
- Yearly goal - creating the business
- Monthly goals - setting up the website, a business-plan, define what the business is all about, find a location for it and so on
- Weekly goals - finishing a part of the business-plan, new content for the website or social media or other small important ToDo's
- Daily goals - creating a banner for the website, the brand-logo, getting in touch with business-partners and so on
As you can see there are a lot of possibilities to define your goals. Try to define them as precisely as possible.
Prioritise your ToDo's
It's important to priortize tasks so you can work as efficiently as possible. There are 2 common methods.
High / Low Priority
Tasks with a high priority level should be done first.
Tasks you don't enjoy doing you should get done first so they don't get over your head over time.
Focus on one single task at the time. If you trying to do a few tasks at once, you only get distracted, lose concentration and time. Completing ToDo's is also very satisfying and a extra motivation.
5. Reflection & Optimization
At the end of every day do some self-reflection. Did you finished all your ToDo's? If not, what was the reason? How was your productivity? Have there been a lot of distractions? Did you have peak times where you haven't got anything done? Have there occured any new tasks with a higher priority level?
Try to answer these question as honest as possible, because at the end of the day you want to improve your productivity. Optimize your ToDo-List and your priorities and make a plan for the next day.
At the end success can only be achieved by dedication, hard work and daily effort! So keep grinding and smash your goals!
