It doesn’t matter what you do or where you work – everyone is looking for ways to be more productive on the job. But excessive amounts of caffeine and list-making won’t get you any closer to reaching peak productivity levels today.
So, why are we all so obsessed with productivity? It’s probably because in this digital age, staying on task and avoiding distraction is harder to accomplish than your actual work. Not to mention the feeling of a productive workday is somewhat euphoric.
This search for a more productive workday has led to a certain misconception about what productivity really is -- and it’s a lot more than checking tasks off your to-do list. Truly productive people aren’t focused on doing more things; this is actually the opposite of productivity. If you really want to be productive, you’ve got to make a point to do fewer things.
To find out the secret to a more productive workday,
If you have a busy schedule, you likely want to make the most out of each day. If there's a lot on your plate, this can feel overwhelming. However, basic organizational skills and time management can help you have a productive daily routine. You can begin the day with a healthy breakfast, a glass of water, and a workout. This will assure you go into work or school energized. Prioritize your tasks based on importance. Give yourself breaks to assure you don't burn out. At home, focus on things like cleaning and planning for the next day. Also, make sure to do something to unwind. Self-care is as important to productivity as work.
“In the realm of time, there is no aristocracy of wealth and no aristocracy of intellect. Genius is never rewarded by even an extra hour a day. And there is no punishment. Waste your infinitely precious commodity as much as you will, and the supply will never be withheld from you. You cannot draw the future. Impossible to get into debt! You can only waste the passing moment. You cannot waste tomorrow; it is kept for you. You cannot waste the next hour; it is kept for you.” ~ Arnold Bennett

No matter who you were the day before, or what happened, the moment you open your eyes, you have a brand new beginning.
Full control and power to direct your life the way you want it.
