For the professionals of all sectors is important to know what habits will give you what you need to have a day more productive, this state is almost magic that leads us to complete the task in time and without distractions.
Let’s look at some of the most recurrent myths about productivity that can be responsible for the opposite effect.
Separate complex projects into smaller tasks don’t work out.
Program each pending from beginning to end can cause wear, and productive people are more comfortable with the certainty in the short term than with the long-term uncertainty when it comes to managing tasks.
Try to separate the big projects in two or three jobs at once.
Is a matter to get used to, but more realistic approach to complex projects will provide a broader range of ideas, the ability to overcome obstacles and have better point of view from which to make good decisions.
The fact is you don’t know which challenges or opportunities will come across at some point and needs to be flexible enough to handle them.
Do not leave for tomorrow what you can do today.
Use a time line for organize your work, doesn’t matter how many you have on your list.
Productive people are always reviewing what they have to do in the next few weeks, because they know it is a marathon that takes time.
Trying to do everything in the same day can be frustrating and you may be disappointed with the result rushed, so it’s important to be realistic about what you can achieve.
Look for your list and try to put the same number of pending issues every day. The key words on this case are: essentiality and priority.
Reprogram again and again until it’s over.
Do you think that reschedule pendency will not prejudice you?
Think again, there is a big emotional cost that comes with reprogramming.
Productive people know how to eliminate things that are not so important to remain focused and not have the worry of having to do something.
Do commit yourself only what you know you can finish and what you can spend your time during the day. It’s not just about finishing things, but about finishing them well.
After all, the productivity is a personal quest.
What works for some may not work as well for others as not all have the same success settings.
About it, pay attention to your habits and ask yourself what works for you.
Perhaps the most important rule is that professionals more productive create their own “truths” on the road.
