Hey guys, I wanted to start this thread to gather some ideas on how we can increase our productivity to hit our goals sooner.
I think we all know this: You are super hyped to get to work and work your ass off for a few days, maybe even a few weeks. But sooner or later, you start loosing motivation and stop giving it your all.
"It’s fine, I can take a quick break and continue later"
"I’ve been working so hard lately, why don’t I reward myself for a change?"
These are things we’ve all likely told ourselves in these situations to justify our laziness. Enough of this. I have sworn myself that this will not happen to me again. Never. And I want to make sure you guys aren’t sucked in by the hole of procrastination ever again.
I’m going to list a few things that I feel like are really important for increased productivity. Feel free to add your $0.02 and I will add good suggestions to this collection:
You need to create a certain level of urgency! Remind yourself of what you’re trying to do and what you’re doing it for every single day. Make it a part of your routine. Do it before you go to bed or after you wake up, it doesn’t matter. Make sure to set yourself goals to ensure that urgency is present. If you want to hit a goal real bad by a certain point in time you don’t have any time to waste. Urgency.
Something that I started doing over the past 2 weeks is planning out the next day before going to bed. By doing this, you don’t waste any time “brainstorming” your next task or looking through social media trying to come up with ideas since you have a plan and a schedule you’re sticking to. When you complete a task you simply move on to the next one.
This has had some amazing effects in my life, it has been incredible. I am literally getting everything I used to get done in a day done a lot faster and am having “trouble” filling up the spare time with extra tasks. This is a situation you want to be in since it leads to you innovating every day due to all the extra time
These are my 2 most important tips when it comes to increasing productivity. I would love to hear what you guys have to add! Let’s gather our thoughts and long live MPSocial!
