It can be super difficult to keep up with never-ending work load if you don’t prepare yourself well.
We tend to waste a lot of time on things that are not part of our priorities, while we end up not being able to meet up with our set goals.
Here are some few ways to have a productive day.
- Prepare your clothes the night before:
The moment you wake up in the morning, you should immediately get out of bed and start your morning routine.
Prepare your clothes the night before to avoid rush.
You don’t want to spend energy making unnecessary decisions.
- Plan your day the night before:
In order to become super productive you should know exactly which tasks you should be working on at any given time.
This can be achieved by planning in advance. You can plan one week ahead. This will save you a ton of time. In addition, instead of just responding to other peoples requests, you will have control over your schedule and week.
However, you should at least spend 15-30 minutes planning your day the night before. When it comes to planning, it’s smart to apply a system that works.
You should have a to-do list and also know your priorities.
- Be accountable:
Whether it’s weekly check-ins with a co-worker or setting your own deadlines and announcing them to others, having to answer to someone else can often force you to get the job done.
- Meditate for 5 minutes:
You should meditate for 5 minutes.
In addition to relaxing your mind and body, you should use the time to visualize your day. Imagine yourself go through the day and focus especially on important activities for that day, like giving a presentation. You should visualize yourself in third person. Play the picture in your head as a vivid movie with colors and sound performing your important tasks with great success.
- Forgive yourself:
You are human: Accept that you are sometimes going to slip up, become distracted and have a bad day. It’s more important to move on than to dwell on your mistakes.
