One of the best jobs nowadays is through online because it is more convenient because you can work in the comfort of your home, earn bigger comparable to normal employees and you can do other things most especially your other personal tasks. But then, working online has a bulk of the task and you must have a task planning in order for you to increase productivity.
One of the ways to keep your productivity on track is to make a schedule of the list in order for you to accomplish tasks on time and here are the other ways to improve the results of your work each day:
- Plan in advance:
Planning ahead of time will make you visualize and anticipate your goals and will help you reach these targets. But before planning, assess yourself first of the the things you need to accomplish. Evaluate if you can handle those plans and goals. If you think you can, plan a most convenient strategy for you what to do in order for you to save time, effort and energy. If unfortunately you cannot do those tasks, don’t be afraid to tell your employer or manager and ask help.
It is better to ask help in order for you to be clarified than to submit low quality results.
- Avoid mediocracy
Settling in what is passing and what is average is the most mortal sin in any work. When you are working for any employer, make the most out of it and don’t limit your effort. Give the best you can give.
Another thing here is, procrastination. This is the also one of the things you must avoid because you may just waste not just your time, but the trust and confidence of your employer to you and to your work. Since you are in a hurry because you lack time, you will probably rush your task and may lead to poor quality work which will affect your performance.
- Give your best at the worst situations and timing
Before working, it is important to really determine if in what time of the day you are functioning well. For example, you are a morning person, always work the worst task during this time because you still have the interest and energy for your tasks.
- Broaden your limits
The word, “I can’t do” is a big “no-no” in any industry of work. When you are working, always stretch your limits and don’t tend to settle. Whenever there are things that are complex and complicated, think it as a challenge for you so that you would learn and become the best.
- Work one day at a time
This means that, it is good to plan ahead but finish what you can finish today and be organized with your work. Yesterday is yesterday, today is today and tomorrow is tomorrow. Give your best and finish what you can finish for today because tomorrow is another day another task to face.
Working online or in any work may be quite challenging, but it is up to you to face these challenges. One thing is important, you learn from it.
I’ve seen lots of successful and unsuccessful internet marketers in my career. A lot of people (who actually know what they’re talking about when it comes to success) say that working hard, long hours is the key that separates those who succeed from those who fail… but is that really true?
Anyone who’s ever become a successful entrepreneur knows what it means to work hard… 50, 60, 70 hours a week? Hah! Not for a real entrepreneur. It’s more like 100 or more hours a week oftentimes, making business calls during meals, sacrificing social events for business, and generally doing whatever it takes (legally, ethically and morally) to succeed in business!
Yet, I’ve seen plenty of entrepreneurs fail miserably working hard… and eventually quit altogether, going back to a job and giving up on their entrepreneurial dreams. Hey, there’s no shame in failing and trying. Heck, trying and failing in business is more success than most people achieve in a lifetime. But is working hard the only way to the top?
On this point, I must be honest with myself – working hard is NOT the key to success. No, it’s not even close. I’ve met too many brilliant, successful, wealthy entrepreneurs who work a very reasonable, or even light schedule, yet who continue to grow their businesses at incredible rates. How do they do it?
All mega-successful people I have met universally share a practice that Keith Cunningham calls “thinking time.” Thinking time is scheduling time alone, by yourself, asking questions, thinking, pondering, reviewing the past, learning from mistakes, and planning for the future. It’s time well spent. And, honestly, it’s even more productive than…well working!
Yes, I believe that thinking is much more productive of an activity than working. Don’t believe me?
Well, look at any factory. Thousands of workers work hard days and long hours in the factory – work, work, work. Many of them work overtime. More work! Yet who gets paid the most? Who’s responsible for making decisions that could double production? The manager, executive or entrepreneur, that’s who! And what would they be doing in the office in the middle of the day, or late at night before they go to sleep? Why, they’d be THINKING about the business, right?
So thinking is truly much more productive than actually working or producing.
Are you spending enough time thinking about your business?
