If you’re new to my community, a warm welcome to you! I’m so happy you’ve decided to join us!
If you’re in Canada, I hope you’re enjoying the Victoria Day holiday!
It’s a gorgeous day here in Central Ontario. Not quite as hot as it’s been the past few days, and that’s perfectly okay with me. Shaun will be home this afternoon from his weekend away with the girlfriend, and he said he was going to try and get here in time for us to go play some golf, so that will be a treat if he makes it! If not, I might just go by myself and knock a few balls around on the driving range this afternoon.
Here’s what I have for you this morning…
Today’s Read: Productivity and Busyness are Not the Same!
I don’t know about you, but I find it really easy to get stuck in the trap of busy equals productive.
The main idea of productivity is always to work smarter, not harder. Just because you are active, working hard, and doing stuff does not mean you have used your time wisely enough to be productive. Unfortunately, there’s a myth out there that wants us to believe that being “busy” means you’re being super productive, and if you’re not keeping busy then you’re just being lazy.
However, the most productive people can easily seem lazy with this mindset when they got all their work done already and get to take the rest of the day off. Remember, the formula for productivity is your output over your input. If your input significantly outweighs the output, you need to adjust and fix your to-do list.
Here are a few ways you can do that:
Remove any and all distractions
When it is time to work, take responsibility and remove the distractions you know will disrupt you.
Create separate to-do lists and learn how to prioritize
Start each morning with a to-do list to tackle each thing you need to get done. If you need to reach out to a customer and also complete a big assignment for the day, then you need two separate to-do lists.
Take time to evaluate your work, efforts, and company mission/goals
It’s essential always to schedule time throughout your day to evaluate your actions and compare them to your goals. Take five or ten minutes every now and then to make sure you are still on your to-do list and that the goals you need to get done relate to your company mission or ultimate goals.
Work in batches
Working in batches means putting similar tasks together and get them done at the same time. This means less time is required to go back and forth between different tasks, and to keep the concentration and momentum you need to get done fast.
Automate repetitive tasks
Create templates for emails, repetitive tasks, accounting, inventory management, and customer management software to keep track of mundane and tedious tasks.
Don’t put out more effort only to achieve no rewards. Compare your efforts daily to your goals so that your productivity matches your intentions to live a more successful life.
