How to Increase Everyday Productivity

Often we think that being productive is the same as being busy.

Even though the two are clearly different. Productive means doing everything based on goals effectively and efficiently. While busy, you tend to do everything quickly or in a hurry and tend to make you tired. Simply put, productive can be said to be smart work, while busy can be defined as hard work.

Have you felt less productive lately? If so, you must read this review about how to increase productivity!

1. Stop Multitasking

Doing several things at the same time is called multitasking. Even though it seems effective, multitasking is actually not recommended if you want to be more productive.

Try to focus on one thing you want to do at a time. Once one job is finished, then you can do other things. By focusing on only doing one job until it is finished, your time will also be more effective and efficient because your work will be completed more quickly.

2. Don't forget to take a short break

Focusing too much on the many things we have to do in one day can make you feel unmotivated. Worst case, you might even feel lazy about doing it. But, doing various things without taking a break is also not good, you know! For that, you need to try the Pomodoro Technique.

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management strategy so that you can focus more on what you are doing over several periods, interspersed with rest time. How: focus on doing one thing for 25 minutes, then rest for 5 minutes. Repeat up to 4 times.

After that, rest for 15-30 minutes. That way, you won't feel tired quickly even if you have done a lot of things.

3. Break Big Goals into Small Goals

Goals that are too big often make us dizzy, making them difficult to complete. For this reason, try breaking big goals into small goals every day.

By breaking it down into small goals, you will feel more confident in completing the various tasks. The work you do will also be more systematic and can be done realistically.

Do you have to finish presentation material for tomorrow?

Try to make an outline of the idea first. Then add the points you want to convey.

In the first 25 minutes, you can create a background concept. After a 5 minute break, in the second 25 minutes you can write about the theory. In the next 25 minutes, you can explain the problem. Then in the last 25 minutes, you can suggest a solution.

This way of increasing productivity is very effective and efficient.

4. Create a Priority Scale

When you have a lot of things to do, what makes you decide which work to do first?

Yes! Making a priority scale can save you.

The priority scale is making an order of the things you have to do, starting from the things that are most important and must be completed immediately to things that are less important and do not need to be completed immediately.

Before creating a priority scale, you must understand the urgency of each job. Does the work have to be finished during the day before lunch time? Or can this be completed in the afternoon before evening?

By creating a priority scale, the things you have to do will be more systematic and orderly.

5. Minimize interruptions

When you are busy, suddenly a notification appears from one of the social media on your cellphone . Automatically you take your cellphone and read it. Sound familiar?

There are lots of things that can distract us around us. Avoiding it directly is not an easy matter. For this reason, you need to create rules to prevent these interruptions.

Do you want to minimize interruptions while you're WFH?

Practice the Pomodoro Technique. When you want to do important things that require maximum focus, try answering messages on your cellphone during your 5 minute or 30 minute break.

That's a way to increase daily productivity that you can try. Start slowly and make sure you can be consistent. By doing all these things, your productivity will increase even more.

Good luck!
