What I am constantly learning from successful Internet marketers is that productivity has a direct influence on your success online and in business. Knowing how to manage your time as well as prioritize and focus has a massive effect on your success.
Trying to learn how to become productive is a challenge but once you have a system and a mindset that works it gets easier and easier.
Below I have a video and listed a few key points that I believe will directly result in aiding you and I towards success in multiple areas.
Treat it like a Business
It’s very easy to sit there on your laptop in front of the TV and work half heartedly for hours. But it’s better and more productive to work for half the time but at your desk focusing on what your doing.
Clean Desk & Clean Desktop
These go hand in hand as the are physical and virtual but involve the same process and results. A clean desk is a clean mind. Ever seen the film ‘Limitless’? He suddenly realizes that a productive mind can’t function in an untidy space. Keep a clean space and remain organized and efficient.
To Do list
Writing a ‘To Do List’ is one of the fastest ways to make sure that everything you need to get done, you do get done and in record time. It details out the order in which your tasks need to be completed and once you complete them, checking them off gives a real sense of achievement as well as having that task behind you.
Switch Distractions Off
Although hard to do, especially if you have a busy social life, no one cares about your success as much as you! So your friend may want to talk now but they don’t know or care about you writing that article today or making that video. So don’t ignore them but prioritize and keep a clear head, they will still be there in an hour.
Focus on One thing at a Time
Like I say in the video above, having 6 windows open is easy and sometimes better depending on what your doing. But get focused! If you don’t NEED to have 6 windows open, close 5 of them, get your task done and reopen what you need to.
Finish what you Start
Not finishing a project or task causes so many problems, the most annoying of which is that at some point you’ll have to come back and actually finish it! So get it done now, no time like the present. Your productivity will improve by this point alone.
