Like many people I struggle with using my time wisely, so I have collected a few tricks to help keep me on track.
As someone who is fortunate enough to be able to work from home, I need to be sure that I get all of my work done and not get distracted by things at home. These productivity tips and tricks from DealDash should work for you no matter where you work or what your tasks are.
Make a list. I love lists! You can make your list on your phone or tablet with a list-making app, make a list on paper, or even get a dry erase board or chalkboard to write your lists upon.
Do the least favorite task first. Once you have made your list, identify the tasks that absolutely have to be done, and do your least favorite task first. Once you have gotten the worst one out of the way, the other ones won’t seem so bad.
Reward yourself. Once you have done 3 of your tasks on your list you deserve a break! Take a 15-minute break, or if it’s close to lunch time, go ahead and reward yourself by taking a 30-minute lunch break. Once your break is over, immediately get back to work. If you don’t get right back to work inertia will take over and you will lose track of your goal of productivity.
Keep it moving. Don’t dilly-dally around between your tasks, wasting 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there. You will get a little reward in the form of another break once you have completed another 3 tasks on your list. You can take another 15-minute break between each set of 3 tasks until your entire task list has been completed.
If you’re feeling extremely productive after you have finished your task list for the day, then go ahead and start writing tomorrow’s list. Writing tomorrow’s list today will save you time because you can get started right away.
