12 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity

1. Set productivity targets

Be clear on what exactly you want to achieve.

2. Maintain a work environment conducive to productivity

If you feel at home, you will be more inspired to get things done.

3. Have an organized workspace

If you have a messy workspace, you will feel disorganized and sluggish.

4. Put first things first

Put the important things first before anything else.

5. Time box your tasks

Time boxing refers to putting your tasks within fixed time slots.

6. Have a separate list for incoming tasks

Use a single list for urgent tasks, and another for other tasks.

7. Upgrade your skills

Your limitations in output come from limitations in your skill level.

8. Know your motivation triggers

When were the times when you felt inspired? How can you integrate this into your daily life to reinforce your motivation?

9. Utilize time pockets

Time pockets are the little bits of time you have in between one event to the next -- waiting for buses, waiting for appointments to start. Have some ready activities for these.

10. Hold yourself accountable

Progress tracking is essential to know how you are doing.

11. Wake up early

If you are up before most of the world, you will be motivated to maintain that lead.

12. Remember To Rest

It’s about quality of work produced, not quantity of hours spent.
