Hacks to be more productive


The most common misconception is that working hard always produces great results.

The myth buster, however, is that working smart is going to be much better than working hard – and it might actually give you much better results.

1.       ACCURACY

Stop guessing and make sure that your decisions are backed up with data. Measure and optimize everything that you do. Working overtime will not affect your productivity. Make sure that you have done smart work, and not hard work. 

2.       SET BOUNDARIES

Don’t say “yes” too often.

Most of us have a deep need to be liked. That translates into us saying yes to everything – which is the end of your elite productivity’, says celebrated author, Robin Sharma.

3.       TEAM UP

 Stop doing everything yourself and start letting people help you.It’s important that you know how to open up and seek help from your colleagues. More often than not, even if your colleagues can’t help you, having them around can help you become more productive.

4.       BE ORGANISED

Stop doing repetitive tasks and start automating it. People often forget that time is money. If you think that you cannot build it yourself, then make sure that you hire someone who can do it for you.

5.       ALONE TIME

It’s important to walk away from our work once in a while and have some alone time. Alone time is good for the brain and spirit. It’s important that you have time for thoughts and reflections.

Being productive is something you have to work for every day, and be patient as well as skill in order to reach where you want to be.
