The goal of productivity is to make us done more work with less possible investment in our efforts, but the quality of work done to be on a much higher level.
Can we achieve that goal? Yes, we can!
This goal is something on which I think in the last 15 years. In the beginning that’s looked like a perpetuum mobile, something impossible. However, as an imperative to increase my own productivity was really useful.
Can you get more done with more quality and less effort? Is it possible? What are you thinking about this?
Yes, you can.
In this post, I want to share with you a useful list of advises that if you implement you can make this possible. This list is something that I have already used and receive the benefits.
#1 Technology is here to help you.
Every day, every hour, every minute, maybe every second there is something new in the form of technology around us. One of the largest purposes of different type of technologies around us is to make us more productive, giving us more freedom.
With technology in the form of different devices and different apps, you can accomplish more work, with less effort and time, but in the same time with better quality.
You need to invest time to learn how to use it, but after that you will feel all the benefits.
Because of that don’t escape from technology. Don’t fear to use it, to try it. If you find something useful, try it. Look at the possibilities that will help you to be more productive and make that technology as a standard for the future work.
#2 Improvement is your everyday job.
You can’t find something that can’t be improved. You can improve your life. You can improve your technology. You can improve the processes that you use. You can improve your habits.
What you can improve? What can you make better today than yesterday, or what can be better tomorrow than today? You need to ask yourself this kind of questions everyday if you want to enter into a cycle of continuous improvement to increase your productivity.
#3 Shortcuts sometimes will increase your productivity, but what about the results?
Sometimes when we want to increase our productivity, we use shortcuts that will help use to save time. However, the shortcuts are something that will increase productivity only if we finish something quickly, but with better or at least with the same quality of job done.
Bad quality of job that you are doing will not increase your productivity, and in most of the cases will decrease it. Don’t use shortcuts that will not give you better results from using it.
#4 Simplification can improve your life.
Sometimes we are the biggest creators of complexity in our life and work. Simplicity means the better life for you.
The complexity will reduce our productivity, and we don’t need it. Everything can be simplified. Why complex things, when we can make simple things?
#5 Prioritization will help you to be more productive.
Prioritization will tell you what is the most important thing that you need to do right now. You need prioritization to help you in achieving what you want to achieve with more quality and less efforts.
Different things are different in each aspect, and have a different priority for you. Find what’s most important for you and make that things as first on your list.
#6 Distraction will decrease your productivity and quality of work.
I know that we must to read emails, talk with friends, check social media, watching a TV… However, everything needs to be in the right time.
If you are going to work on your most priority tasks on your list, then work on them without distractions. Distractions will take your focus, and you can’t achieve what you want with better quality
#7 Learning is a part of our everyday life.
Everyday we learn something new. Tomorrow we will be smarter than today. We need to use what we learn to become more productive.
Learning will increase your business potential energy as an entrepreneur. If you learn, you will know. If you know, you can improve and simplify. If you improve and simplify you can do more with more quality and less efforts.
