Get It Done

Until you set a realist goal, it will be difficult to measure how successful you have been irrespective of the endevour. For an individual who wants to measure his success level or productivity, it is required that the person keep tab of his production – month by month; quarter by quarter and year by year. According to experts, you can actually increase your productivity by huge mark overnight using the tips below. Get clear on what you want The first step is to get clear on what you want. Set clear goals that motivate and inspire you to take action, right now. Set one primary goal that if you achieve will have a dramatic impact on your life. When you focus on one goal, something funny happens: All of your secondary goals get the benefits as well. But if you dilute your focus and try to do too many things at once, you won’t succeed in any of them. So, set specific, measurable, realistic and time sensitive goals in order to give your subconscious mind a target to aim at. Figure out your valuables After you’ve set your goals, it’s time to figure out the 20 percent of tasks that will give you 80 percent or more of the results. Focus only on high- value tasks that catapult you towards your goal. These tasks are usually the ones that you tend to procrastinate most. The difference between productive and unproductive people is that productive people are willing to tackle the uncomfortable tasks head on. They have cultivated their self-discipline, and they know that while focusing on these tasks may not be the most fun thing in the world this produces dramatic results. Plan your day Number three on our list is to plan your next day before you go to bed at night. This is as simple as writing down the top five things that you have to get done the next day. If you can accomplish these five things, your day will be a success. Again, make sure that these tasks are high-value and produce dramatic positive consequences in your life if you accomplish them. By planning your day before you go to bed, you give your subconscious something to chew on during the night. If you want to take it one step further, you can visualize every task going perfectly the next day. Single-task We are inundated with distractions in this digital age. We have Twitter, e-mail, and Facebook distracting us all day long. By single tasking and focusing on one thing at a time, you can dramatically increase your productivity. This step alone can make a huge difference in not only the speed at which you work, but also the quality of work that you produce. You can also take this one step further by setting an egg timer for each task. Estimate how long one task will take you and then set the timer for half the time. You will be surprised at how fast you can get stuff done under pressure. Practice Relentless Focus It is easy to get distracted by other projects and opportunities that seem much better than the one you’re working on now. Constantly focus your mind on your primary goal and let everything else fall to the wayside. You will be much more successful and get much more done. Cultivate the habit of saying no to the things that do not bring you closer to your primary goal, and don’t worry, because you can always come back to other projects later on, but first you have to finish what you have in front of you.
