The truth is that we have a distorted view of business, and we typically neglect the idea that we can take control of our time and become more productive in less time by reclaiming control of our time. #ThinkWithNiche
The majority of people claim to be extremely busy all of the time. While half of them appear to be busy, the other half engage in a variety of needless activities, wasting time on a regular basis. Some people find it relaxing to be busy, while others become neurotic as a result. Whatever the situation, there's always a better and easier method to get more done in less time while still enjoying your days.
For busy folks, here are some simple but effective productivity tips:
1-To begin, make a to-do list.
If you already do, that's fantastic. If not, give it a shot. It's possible that it's the final piece of the puzzle.
2-Write it late at night.
Before you go to bed, take a few minutes each evening to write down everything you need to get done the next day.
You'll save time and worry in the morning by doing so, and you'll be able to get right to work.
3-Make a to-do list as well as a not-to-do list.
It's the polar opposite of a to-do list, and Tim Ferriss swears by it.
Simply jot down any bad habits or behaviors you're attempting to break, as well as anything you find yourself doing frequently but aren't productive.
You'll be more aware of them this way, and you'll save time. This may appear to be a minor triumph in the near term, but after a month, you'll notice that you have more time to devote to what is actually producing results.
We're all looking for freedom and independence. Working from home, freelancing, and entrepreneurship provide us with a lot of that. We, on the other hand, are the ones who must establish discipline in this situation. If we don't, distractions and procrastination will get in the way. So, even if you don't have to, create deadlines.
Please remember Parkinson's law, which states that "work expands to fill the time available for completion."
5-Make a list of your MITs.
These are the tasks that are most important to you.
You'll discover that some activities, tasks, and projects are more significant than others if you look at your to-do list more closely. They will help you get closer to your objectives, will assist you in improving yourself, will allow you to track your progress, or will assist others in some way. As a result, it's important concentrating on them first.
Prioritize them by putting them at the top of your to-do list.
6-Get started on them right away in the morning.
Then, as soon as you get up (and complete your morning routine), get to work on them.
This will offer you the motivation to keep going, as well as a sense of productivity and achievement early in the day.
That is how major life goals are eventually achieved. By making them a top priority and taking action on a daily basis.
7-Take a look back at your day
Spend some time at the end of the day reflecting on how things went.
Consider how long each activity took and whether it might have been completed more quickly and with greater execution. Consider how you might improve your performance after that.
8-Your time is split 80/20.
The 80/20 rule is actually Pareto's principle, according to which "approximately 80% of the consequences arise from 20% of the causes."
It is applicable to all aspects of life. In our example, productivity and time management, we may look at the 20% of our to-do list that will actually offer us 80% of the outcomes, and eliminate the remainder so we can devote more concentrated time to them.
You'll notice significant improvements in your work, life, and mindset once you start following the suggestions in this list for extremely busy people. What other time-saving strategies do you know that work and can help busy people get more done in less time?
