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:
1. 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.
2. Plan out tomorrow’s schedule tonight. When we write down what we intend to do, we’re far more likely to actually do it.
3. 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.
4. Avoid being 100% booked. If your calendar looks full, deliberately schedule time to do nothing. You can use this time as a buffer between meetings to tackle unexpected tasks that crop up during the day.
Try at least one of these strategies this week, and notice any differences in your productivity. You got this!
