If you’re anything like me, you’re productive at the last minute before something’s due. Trying to get any work done before that is like trying to run a 5k through wet cement.
Today’s infographic explores how to become more productive. To have a good day, you need to have a good morning. Wake up early to give yourself more time to get ready, and eat a healthy breakfast to keep your body at peak performance. You can use the extra time to make a productivity playlist if you like listening to music while you work.
The next thing you should do is make a to-do list that focuses on goals and important tasks. Next, set timers for tasks so you don’t spend the whole day wrapped up in one task — and so you can set time aside for scheduled breaks.
Once you have your list, it’s time to zone in and focus wholeheartedly on your work. One of the biggest distractions I have is my cell phone because I almost always find myself browsing when I’m supposed to be doing something else. I’m sure many of you have this same problem, but fear not — this infographic has a solution.
Leave your phone away from your desk so you can’t even think about when working. At first, this will be difficult, but you will eventually get used to it. If you just can’t seem to put your phone down to work even after reading this infographic, learn about how to stop checking it so much here.
