productivity tips

Productivity is being able to do things that you were never able to do before.

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.

 

Maximize your time by being productive

The goal is to live a full, productive life even with all that ambiguity.

Multitasking is a best way in order to maximize your time however, there will be chances that your work will be low in quality. Not everybody can do multitasking also because it requires a lot of skill and expertise.

One of the ways to maximize time is by avoiding distractions around us. Most especially the unnecessary things because it will just make our work delay and waste our precious time. Time is very important in our lives and it’s one thing we can never get back once it was lost. That is why time should be spent well in a more productive and essential matter.

In this article, I’am not giving ways how to manage time but ways on how to avoid distractions:

  • Avoid procrastination

Do the things you can do now and avoid procrastination. Sometimes we just settle for the things we can accomplish in a day without basing it on our goals and objectives that we set. The purpose of making a to-do-list is to follow it through. Don’t depend that you have so much time in the future. Finish what you can finish now in order for you to enjoy your free time as well.

When it comes to priorities, put on the top list what is most essential and try to avoid unnecessary things when you are working. For example, you know that you have a lot of things to do but you chose to be with your friends partying. It is really okay to enjoy but you must know where to put it.

  • Loud music or noises

When working, sometimes it is very distracting to work on a noisy and crowded place. If you want to work efficiently, choose also a place that is relaxing, conducive for working and comfortable.

Sometimes you must also choose music that suits the task that you have to do, If is more on mental work, try a more mellow and smooth music in order for you to concentrate more.

  • Exhaustion and fatigue could hinder your productivity.

Of course if you are tired, your tendency is to sleep and have a rest. However, if you still insist to work, it will just alter the quality of your work and may affect you.

Whenever tired and exhausted, try to take a power nap for 15-20 minutes in order to get back your energy for work.

  • Social media and technologies

Nowadays, there a lot of social and entertainment media around. Gadgets, high technologies are also one of the hindrance of our productivity because aside to work, we are tempted to use these things for recreations and sometimes we stick to it and therefore, our tasks are also stucked.

So, just try to prioritize first. These social media and technologies are not bad but they should be used in the proper time, place a timing in order for us to finish our work on time, in a great quality in order for us to reach our goals. 

Increasing Productivity By These Ways

When you waste a moment, you have killed it in a sense, squandering an irreplaceable opportunity. But when you use the moment properly, filling it with purpose and productivity, it lives on forever.

 

Use your time as productive as possible through these ways:

  • Make a plan

Make a plan and work on it. If you have a plan, this will serve as a guide for you and for your goals. Make sure also that if you make a plan, ensure that you do it. Start your day by sparing 15 minutes for your planning because this is very helpful to achieve your tasks in a day.  At the end of the day, don’t forget also to assess yourself if you achieve those goals.

Planning could not just help you to become organized but it will also help you to maximize your time in a more productive way.

  • Learn to prioritize

If you have a lot of work to do, prioritization is very important. List down the most important things and finish them first. After you have finished with the most important, you may now do the least important. This does not mean that you are not giving significance to the least important but you are just organizing your work according to its importance.

  • Do not underestimate small projects

Small projects when not given attention may lead to bigger problems. It could also pile up your work that could lead to bigger tasks at the end. Take tasks equally, maybe big or small because at the end, you will still be responsible for those.

  • Take one day at a time.

You must accept that sometimes you cannot get rid of loads of work, and you cannot finish it all at once in just one setting. All you have to do is to take small steps in order to accomplish it. Don’t force yourself because it will just decrease the quality of your work and the person who will be affected is always you. So, take one day at a time according to your own pace. Quality is still important to quantity.

  • It’s okay to ask help.

Asking help does not necessarily mean you are not capable of doing your task but it is a way of accepting that you need assistance sometimes. It is a humble way of telling that you can come up with a great results with the aid of others. Because we also know that we do not know everything so, others could be an instrument to guide us.                                         

  • Have an end of the day review

One way of assessing if you are successful in your task is if you evaluate yourself after each day. It will give you and idea of your weaknesses and strengths as well. In terms of weaknesses, it will help you improve those in time and in your strength, this will help you maintain those or even improve them to be part of your best.

  • Take breaks

Lastly, don’t forget to take breaks. Have a holiday vacation with your family, invite your friends over a bottle of wine, contact a long lost friend to have some coffee or treat yourself to a spa or any pampering treats. In this way, you can unwind yourself and be ready again to another task.

Productivity tips on Article Writing

productivity, productive

Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.


Writing is a very good way of expressing your feelings, ideas and knowledge to other people most especially when you post it into your blog. It is a great way of sharing your thoughts and hearing others opinion as well.

However, writing requires a lot of skill most especially when you are still starting. It may be difficult at first, but experience and practice as time goes by could help.

In this article, I will share productivity tips on how to make article writing a success and here are those:

  • First, establish a goal. Set a goal for yourself if how much time you will work on a particular article so that you will have a guide. For example, on a particular topic, you should finish it within 30-45 minutes so that the remaining time could help you use in a productive way like writing another topic. Always remember when setting a goal that it is achievable and realistic. You know your capabilities so you are just the only one who can gauge your skill.
  • Make an outline in writing an article. Outlines and guidelines could help you much in article writing. It could help you organize your thoughts in writing one and so that your ideas will not be repeated and make it redundant. Jotting down points could help.
  • Make the most of your morning. Many writers would say that they love writing early in the morning because their mind is free from distractions, worries and stress. It could help the write concentrate more because morning is considered as the quietest time of the day. However, busy professionals such as working moms who could not make it in the morning because of errands can do it late at night especially when the kids are asleep.
  • Serve your readers well. One way to be a productive writer is to cater to your reader’s needs most especially to their questions regarding your blog. They would feel much appreciated if you will respond to them very well. If you are busy enough to entertain them, just make a way as soon as you can.
  • Work location matters. If you are always working at home, try another new place such as a coffee house, a library or anywhere that could help you focus on your  work in a productive way.
  • Organize your desk. An organized desk could also mean an organized mind. So, if you have an organized mind you can work very well without thinking other disruption.
  • Work in a peaceful and quiet place. Working in a quiet place could help you concentrate more and avoid distractions.
  • Don’t choose the topics. Writing could be tiring and sometimes we could not avoid that we are tired and exhausted sometimes. If our mind is exhausted, try to rest for a little lime and go back again to the topic. Do not write anything unnecessary and irrelevant for the sake that you can write something. It will just break the trust of your readers.

Time Management is the answer to every success.

The key is in not spending time, but in investing it. ~ Stephen R. Covey

There are several vital factors that could make or break the success of our career. Secularly, one of the easiest is time management but can be toughest to grasp. With it, it can make our life less stressful if we manage and schedule our time properly.

Time is a weird thing –intangible but inflexible. Time just isn’t something you can make more of. You cannot save minutes or hours either for later use. This is precisely why many wonder why bother managing time to start with? Nonetheless, it is your most important resource, for that very reason. You cannot make 24 hours go to 27 hours so that you can finish off those things you need done, but you can increase your efficiency so that you will get more projects completed on that time that you simply do have. If you fail to be productive, you cannot get back the time you have lost. The number of projects you accomplish isn’t the only way of gauging your productivity. Your productivity is measured by how much time you spent finishing a task.

Observing good time management takes self-discipline, but everything fall into place once you see the benefits of managing and scheduling your time better. You will notice great improvements in your work performance and getting tasks completed will seem to be nearly effortless. Having a to-do list could surely help make things easier when it comes to prioritization. Putting off the difficult jobs can only help your day seem more chaotic as you will be constantly trying to catch up.

To others, the answer in getting more tasks done is by working more quickly. However, I will decrease the quality of work but it will surely raise the output. If you are just expert in managing your time, you don’t need to cram and double time your work so you could make up for the time you’ve lost. Time management isn’t really about dashing to get things done faster. Instead, it’s doing things better so there wouldn’t be any need for you to hurry in the first place.

It’s not possible to separate time management and efficiency. There are numerous time wasters in the workplace, but inefficient time scheduling and disorganized work spaces are two top time wasters. Your professional reputation and credibility are considerably affected by these two. Don’t expect your colleagues to be overwhelmed if you keep fumbling for your pen or ruffling through your notes while you’re doing a business presentation. On the other hand, if you always appear to be unruffled, that you have things together, you’ll impress people.

Many of us are very good at making a plan, but not always so good at following through on it. Setting realistic goals, giving yourself work deadlines and meeting them are the specific ways you can manage your time. When you have to learn and accept your own boundaries, as well as learn how to stretch them, you’ll find these skills quite easily applied in other places. Based on achievable solutions, you can form the habit of correctly assessing the situation and making reasonable decisions.

All successful businesses practice good time management. Time is one of your most precious resources and you should manage it effectively most especially in business. Managing your time effectively might be tough at first, but if you could get used to it, it might be very easy for you. Wasting time is something the successful individuals don’t do. If you want to succeed, you need to perfect your time management.

Prioritization

To become a Productivity Junkie it starts with defining priorities and managing your time effectively. Its hard to accomplish a lot if you are focused on the negative, what you don’t have, what you can’t do.
