Friday, September 18, 2020

Productivity is something a lot of people have struggled with. That is probably why you are here right now. Sometimes it can be hard to feel productive and ready to accomplish everything that the day brings us. The thing about productivity is that most of the time, we just wait for it to come. 

While that is one way to get productive, it is definitely not the best one as you never know when productivity will actually come. There are some much better methods to feel and be productive every single day. They are simple, and you probably heard about them before, but this is the call to action. 

Reading every single article and blog post on productivity will not really make you productive unless you try those tips and tricks yourself. So let's do this together. Try at least one of these things today, and see if it will make you have a productive day, whatever that may mean to you. Don't overthink it. 



This technique is something I've been talking a lot about on this blog. It is one of the best ways to get things done when you are easily distracted. If you are not familiar with this technique, it is simply said setting 4 25 minutes sets with a 5-minute break between each set. That means that you mindfully work for 25 minutes and then rest for 5 minutes. There are a lot of Pomodoro YouTube videos you can turn on so that you don't need to set your alarm each time. There are also different time versions. 

You can work for 4 sets of 45 minutes and have 15 minutes break or do 8 sets of 15 minutes with 15 minutes breaks. There are so many different combinations you can choose from based on your concentration level. It is best to select the time frame you are going to get the most things done. Pomodoro technique will help you keep focused longer, and you will be able to get more things done quicker. 


To ensure that you are not going to get distracted by any notification, airplane mode is your best friend. Sometimes it can be hard to leave our phone in another room or completely disconnect, but airplane mode is something we should all be able to do. When you work, you should be only concentrated on work, and the best way to do it is to not focus your attention on anything else. I'm sure that you are aware of how easy it is to lose focus and fall into a rabbit hole called social media. 

Once you step your leg in, you are doomed without even noticing you'll be scrolling through Instagram and TikTok for a few hours while you could've been completely done with your work. Isn't it much better to get all the boring things done and then treat yourself with scrolling through social media? If you don't have strong enough will power than have an accountability buddy and have him/her even take your phone with them or make sure that your airplane mode is on while you are working. Working toward something will definitely make you more productive. 


Who else is guilty of first finishing the most manageable tasks to feeling tired of all the essential and hard ones? This is one of the mistakes a lot of people do. Writing many irrelevant little assignments just to feel like we accomplished something might seem like a good idea, but in fact, it is only going to make your life harder. Take your planner or piece of paper and write the 3 most important things you absolutely need today. Don't write anything else. 

When you finish those 3 most important things, go back to your planner and write down other tasks you want to but not necessarily need to complete today. This will prevent you from going around and postponing things that are important just because they will take you a little bit more time and effort. It is always the best to finish those tasks as soon as possible because, lets be honest, you will never really feel like doing them anyways. This method is here to help you prioritize essential tasks over not so important ones. 

Do you use any of these hacks to say more productive?
