Simple and Straightforward Tricks to Become More Productive
In life’s journey, we have been taught that if we want more joy, money, achievement, and peace of mind, we need to make more efforts.
But have you ever thought that this theory was wrong! What if you could achieve more by doing less?
This advice may sound strange. But there is so much evidence that supports the fact that to ramp up happiness and productivity in life. We should do less. These days, most people spend more than six hours a day at the office and end up the day with loads of stress and tiredness. However, not all those hours we spend focusing on work need to get us desired results. Even, in most cases, these routines make us feel drained and stressed in life.
It is probably the right time to identify what we should do and what we should not do. But all this cannot be determined randomly. One needs to do an evidence-based analysis and make careful decisions for the best results. Whether it is about your job, business, family, or personal life, one should always be more focused and determined about what to do and what not to do.
Here we have listed a few steps about how this decision-making process may work to make you more productive:
Step 1: The first most task you need to do is take a paper and draw a line lengthwise in the middle to separate it into two parts.
Step 2: Choose one area of your life where you wish to have better results with less stressful routines. For example, you want to set up a business.
Step 3: Now, on the left-hand side of this paper, start making a list of activities and tasks that you would love to do in that particular area of life. You may love to establish a reliable network of professionals, do lots of research about market trends, find ways to promote your business in the competitive market, and many more.
Step 4: On the right-hand side of this paper, you need to list the biggest wins in that area. It may be earning a specific number of email subscribers, achieving a set number of visitors on your website, daily sales amount, or social media interactions.
Step 5: Now draw a connecting line between specific activity/task and the resulting outcome on the paper’s other side. For instance, promoting your business on Facebook and achieving a particular number of reactions. Create a link between such events that may work like cause and effect.
Step 6: Now, circle all the activities contributing to the big wins in your life. Whatever is left after this will be what you need to stop doing in life or maybe minimize to some extent so that you can spare time for the more valuable ones.
These simple steps can help you to redefine your work and life goals. This exercise may soon bring more joy and charm to your life.
