2018 is well on the way which means it is time to crank up your productivity to achieve a fruitful and satisfying year of achieving your goals. 

 
Being productive and efficient with how you spend your time and energy has become a branch of science today.  However the challenge of achieving optimal productivity levels are increasing with distractions such as social media and content streaming available at the push of a button. Fortunately, there is no better time than now to boost your productivity using five simple, yet powerful techniques that do not consume more of your limited time, energy, or money. 

 

Establish and Recheck Goals 

We are all familiar with the age old ritual of setting new year’s resolutions but it is also important to recheck existing ones to give yourself a clear indication of your progress. Set goals that are SMART - smart, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound. Be as detailed as possible when setting goals. This will help you determine whether or not you are actually making any concrete steps towards it. 

 

Redesign Your Work Environment 

If you are always getting  distracted by your  favourite  sitcom or by a text message on your phone, it's time for a change to your work environment.  Redesign your  work space  to minimise as much background noise, excess lighting, and irrelevant content as possible. Close the windows, control the light, and take other distractions out of the room. Leave your cell phone away from your work desk so that it doesn’t  side-track  you from your tasks. 

 

Surround Yourself With Inspiration 

You can draw inspiration from books, educational films, documentaries, or people. Friends and co-workers who enjoy the same interests and passions as you do can help encourage you to be more productive in a shorter time span.   Surrounding yourself with like-minded co-workers  also helps you absorb more information and think of more ideas as you collaborate with them. 

 

Sleep and Eat Well 

Your health is, without a doubt,  the most  important  asset you should invest in.   Not getting enough rest and not getting adequate nutrition from your diet can lead to  illness, which can disrupt your normal productivity. Getting necessary sleep and eating a well-balanced diet is essential. Take natural supplements if you lack particular vitamins and exercise regularly to keep your mind and body in peak condition. 

 

Automate  and Delegate Tasks 

Take advantage of modern technology  to improve your productivity.   From calendars  apps  to payment systems  taking care of  your  utility bills and loans, automating tasks can reduce mental and physical workload. It  also  frees up your time to focus on more  critical  tasks, like work, study, and family.  If technology can’t help you, delegate to somebody who can do it for you. Use freelance websites like Fiverr or Upwork to hire a personal assistant who can help you with  time-consuming  tasks like data-entry or content writing. 

 

Remember that boosting your productivity doesn't mean spending more time at work. It just means being smarter with how you spend your active hours. Put these tips into practice and you will reap the benefits of your efforts!
