Remember the quote that came out a while ago, “You have the same number of hours in a day as Beyonce?” Well, it’s true. Same goes for you and everyone else. The trick to making it seem like you have more: getting organized.
These simple tricks for better organization lead to more daily productivity, and soon, you’ll be meeting all of your goals like a champ.
6 Ways to Increase Daily Productivity
Plan for the next day before you go to bed
Even if you’re not a compulsive list maker like some of us, this trick can aid you in many productive ways. Do you ever have trouble sleeping when you know you have a busy day ahead? Take 10 to 15 minutes each evening to plan out your upcoming day.
Identify the keys tasks you need to get done no matter what. This will allow you the pleasure of knowing exactly what to do when as soon as you wake up.
Become a morning person
How many of you don’t get out of bed until you absolutely have to? Let’s assume most of us. However, if you start counting on those wee hours of the morning as extra time to set yourself up for the day, rather than rolling around restlessly in bed, your day will immediately become more productive. We recommend working out in the AM and focusing on personal projects during this ‘bonus’ time.
Learn to delegate certain tasks
Many of us in business or otherwise have trouble letting go of the reins sometimes. We like things done our way. The key to making this effective, however, is focusing our attention on tasks that only we can truly do best. For everything else, drop the idea of perfection and let someone else tackle it. This could be letting your kids do the dishes or finally hiring that bookkeeper. Either way, you won’t be playing catch up in every area of your life if you let go a little.
