Do you always get things done, right on time and up to the quality that is expected of you? Do you fail to do certain things, at times? Do you have consistent productivity levels and are you always at the top of your game?
The following infographic outlines the biggest time wasters at work that contribute to suppressing productivity.
These are some questions that every professional should ask oneself. The reality is that no matter how much willingness you have to be super productive, you will find it difficult. Willpower, an urge to get things done and trying to stretch your limits are all fair but they often don’t get you where you should be. If you have to end up with super productivity at all times then you need to master the art & science of getting things done.
In Super Productivity – The Art & Science Of Getting Things Done, you would not only get to know what super productivity is but also the ways that you can achieve that.
There is always more to do than what you can do, unless of course you don’t plan to do much. If you have too much on your plate and especially if the tasks are diverse in nature then you will find yourself facing several challenges. You may spend too much time on something which would leave very little time for another task. You might procrastinate on one task and be afraid of taking up on another larger task. You might be low on energy, you may have a bad day with the quality of work you are doing and you may be over stressed if you multitask too much.
The art and science of getting things done deals with your day to day routine in a very pragmatic manner! First, you should have a schedule planned in such a manner that you blend in a session or spell of intense work and then indulge in a small break to restart. Second, you should always have a plan in place. You must have the habit of getting down to chalk out a routine, schedule or plan of action every day, ideally in the evening, for the following day. Third, you should always monitor your progress, not after long spells of work but as you continue to work and complete smaller phases of the larger task. Fourth, you should focus on one thing at a time and not multitask. Fifth, dominate your distractions so you can stay focused. Sixth, you should love what you are doing and seventh, learn when it is time and right to say no.
