Productivity is no less than a common word. A word that we have been hearing since we stepped into the real world of careers and opportunities. A word that comes first above all and resolves every criterion in order to work accordingly. Be it any kind of work, if you’re well productive then congrats, you may be living with a vast scope and determination throughout life which is what we all need.
Check out my suggestion or rather a gentle reminder to all of you on this: the three different ways to boost your productivity at work.
1. Set Up a Mindset
Becoming productive at any work is just like creating a habit. And for that, setting that type of mindset is a must-to-do step. Suppose you want to wake up early, nearly at 7’o clock in the morning, are you sure that the next day you’ll be going to get up at your desirable time? No, it’s not possible but difficult to instruct your brain in just one go. Remember, the mind is the mind and the driver seat is yours. Those who can’t drive their own car, someone else will or their mind itself. That’s the power of the mind.
The way we strengthen our body by exercising is the same way we need to push our minds to the different paths of training to ultimately achieve the goal.
I have a solution..May work for a few or may not. But this will definitely be going to help you to realise (if you haven’t) that our mind itself is the angel and the devil.
Now, take a glimpse of how to set a mindset at first to boost your productivity at work-
- Divide the goal into smaller goals to ease your mind.
- Meditate once a day and I assure you that you will be glad to have it as a part of your daily routine.
- Picking a book that you wish to read can be a great idea to train your mind.
- Write more often to express more.
- Connect with stronger people and understand their perceptions about everything.
And that’s it. Consider a 30-day challenge and follow those not-so-called steps but rather formations of blocks of your mind. Believe it or not, you will successfully conquer the first-ever phase to increase your productivity level at work.
2. Make Use of Productive Tools
A productive tool comes in various forms. Even WhatsApp has been becoming the tool of productivity via communication. Basically, productive tools are meant to be served for the people, by the people, and to the people. While living in the 21st century, choosing a reliable tool to increase productivity isn’t a matter anymore.
Then, what’s the matter right now? That is to examine which looks compatible enough for you and your work environment as there are a thousand options but still, it makes it tougher to choose. Read further to know ‘why’.
First, check out the reviews of the most commonly used apps or the app that you would like to install.
Second, after going through the review, download it and keep the app under observation for a few days.
Third, if the app passes your test of compatibility, productivity, and its overall feature, then start taking a course on how to make the best use of it. For example, if I talk about our MS Excel which although many know how to use in a basic manner, still a lot more to go to become a master in this.
Fourth, now why is it necessary to be a pro at using such productive tools? Well, it has nothing to do with ‘what you know’, it has something to do with how you manage workloads more quickly without having to take stress on it. And, the one that efficiently understands the value of your time and work is the one tool you should look for.
As for me, it’s always those Google tools and a traditional go-to notepad to sort out my to-do list of the day. What about you? Let me know in the comment section below.
3. Engage with Curriculum Activities
I remember in childhood times when I and most of us used to apply the old gold methodology: Play more to focus more. You know, concentration in any work and every work plays a role that no other can play to boost the amount of productivity you want to have. Seems easy to implement, but it’s not as easy as it seems, especially in the presence of this ongoing era where the attention span of humans is degrading day by day.
But as said, there’s a way out to every tougher-to-tougher problem. Same in this case and that is, getting involved in one or two activities that are out of your context and that’s what you enjoy doing. It’s important to involve oneself in extracurricular activities to think and execute faster and in a better way- which is what productivity is all about. So, if you love to sing, pursue. If you love to dance, do it. If you make great paintings, continue it. Just do it!
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Also, it is worthy to note that according to a few claims, social media nowadays makes the most impact in diminishing productivity instead of boosting it. What you see on social media is not always real. As a human, we aren’t bound to settle for one thing as for its utmost importance, we are bound to ideate, create, and most greatly, to be aware enough to face anything and everything.
My objective was to make you possibly more aware and to stay away from distractions that can even appear as a nightmare to some.
Last but not least, no power exists in reality that opposes productivity if you love what you do.
