World Productivity Day

Posted on June 20, 2016 by Fancy Dress Ball


Today is World Productivity Day! A day for us all to be… more productive! And it’s a Monday too, so a brilliant way to start your week off. To celebrate, here are ten top tips to help you to be more productive…

  1. Make a list! Use something like Todoist to keep track of everything you need to get done. You can set reminders and even recurring tasks so that you can keep on top of things… and get a great sense of satisfaction when you tick things off!
  2. Set a timer. Use the Pomodoro Technique to give yourself a time to work towards. It’s amazing how much more focused and productive you can be when there’s a timer ticking down!
  3. Limit your TV time. Nothing productive was ever done in front of the TV. Limit your time to one hour or less per day, and just see how much you can get done!
  4. Get up earlier. Set your alarm for half an hour earlier, and use that time to do something you don’t normally have time for. Over time, you can set it earlier and earlier and get loads done before everyone else has even opened their eyes!
  5. Drink more water. When you’re dehydrated you have less energy and are less productive.
  6. Switch your mobile off. Or at least put it on silent. It’s amazing how much you can do when you’re not constantly being interrupted an distracted by texts and calls and Facebook notifications!
  7. Eat that frog! Each morning, find the biggest, most horrible task and do it first. That’ll make it much easier to plough through all the smaller, easier tasks afterwards!
  8. Ask yourself a question: “is what I’m doing right now, getting me closer to where I need to be?” If the answer is no, why are you doing it?!
  9. Switch off your wifi. If the task in hand doesn’t need the internet, switch it off. You’ll get so much more done.
  10. Embrace single-tasking. Multi tasking is a myth; it doesn’t exist. Stop pretending it does, and discipline yourself to focus on one thing at a time.
