Five Tips to Boost Your Daily Productivity


Often, when business owners come to me they struggle with feeling overwhelmed and frustrated with not achieving the goals they set. So I thought I would share five tips that have helped me to get more things done in my business.

 

1. Create A Brain Dump


I've shared this many times before but there’s nothing like a good brain dump and then organizing it. First, I start by listing everything I need to get done so all of the thoughts swirling in my head are written down for review. Then, I like to organize this list into three categories priority, good to do, can wait. This helps me to only look at the things that are essential preferably revenue-generating activities. Once you complete your brain dump you want to break it down into actionable steps.


2. Limit The Number of Tasks


Much of our overwhelm has to do with putting too many tasks on our plate. That's why I believe in prioritization over balancing. When you balance it’s like you have to juggle between two or more things. However, when you prioritize, you knock out the most important things first. I like to schedule 3 to 4 tasks each day that are related to the overall weekly goals. If you are feeling overwhelmed, start small and manage that list first before adding more.


3. Create a Morning Routine


My mornings start around 7 AM which allows me to take advantage of the quiet to get things done like exercise or start tasks. I also take an hour to study new business skills. By creating a routine, you can create consistency in your business and remain disciplined. The truth is you won’t always be motivated or passionate but as long as you have that discipline there you can still get things done.


4. Prepare for the Day


A great way to get things done is to prepare for the day ahead of time. What I like to do the day before and at the start of the day is look at the tasks I assign myself. This helps me to mentally prepare myself and think through what I need to accomplish.


Here's one final thought. Don’t be so hard on yourself. I know we want to conquer the world and knock out all of our tasks in one day. But I’ll end with the cliché that Rome was not built in a day and neither will your brand. Being an entrepreneur is about experimenting and then sometimes refining the process. Entrepreneurship is not a destination but rather a continued evolution. So if you need to take it one step at a time, as long as you're moving forward that is all that matters.
