7 Tips to Make Your Life More Productivity
We might have some small thoughts that working hard get more productivity. Without any doubt, working hard can give you the result you aim for. The thing is that does it gives you more productivity? What to compare your result with? Have you ever think about that?
The key to success is not hard working but smart working.
You might or might not heard of the statement above but it works. Here we are with 7 powerful tips to make you get more productivity.
1. Stop working overtime and increase your productivity
In 1926, Henry Ford, American industrialist and founder of Ford Motor Company, conducted experiments with interesting results: When you decrease your daily working hours from 10 to 8, and shorten the work week from 6 days to 5, your productivity increases.
2. Don’t say ‘YES’ too often
According to the Pareto Principle, 20% of the effort produces 80% of the results; however, 20% of the results consumes 80% of the effort. Instead of working harder, we should focus primarily on those efforts that produce 80% of the results and forgo the rest. We will have more time to focus on the most important tasks. We should stop saying âyesâ to tasks that bring low or almost no result.

3. Stop doing everything yourself and start letting people help you
Itâs important for us to realize we can seek help when needed. We cannot do everything ourselves. It is better for you to let someone who can do a better job taking over some of your tasks. It will give you more time to focus on your most important tasks. Instead of wasting your time trying to figure something out yourself, let the experts help you.
4. Stop being Perfectionist
Here are some problems associated with being a perfectionist:
- They spend more time than required on a task.
- They procrastinate and wait for the perfect moment. In business, if it is the perfect moment, you are too late.
- They miss the big picture while being too focused on small things.
The perfect moment is NOW
5. Stop doing repetitive tasks and start automating it.
People often forget that time is money. People usually do things manually because itâs easy and requires almost no research. It is manageable to moderate 30 images on Instagram for your user-generated campaign. But if you have to manage 30 000 photos and videos from 5 different platforms, you need a good digital asset management software.
You donât have to be a coder to able to automate your repetitive tasks. Itâs nice to have the skills or the resources, but itâs not a requirement. If you cannot build it, buy it.
If you still canât find a solution, you can hire an expert to help you. Keep in mind that you need to spend money to make money and that time is your most valuable commodity.
6. Stop guessing and start backing up your decisions with data
There are so many research studies out there that can provide answers in a range of areas. For instance, did you know that most people are more easily distracted from noon to 4PM? This random statistic comes from recent research led by Robert Matchock, an associate professor of psychology at Pennsylvania State University. Even if you canât find the data you need, it doesnât take a lot of time to run a split test.
7. Stop working, and have do-nothing time
Most people donât realize that weâre essentially locking ourselves in a box when we are too focused on something. Itâs important to walk away from our work once in a while and have some alone time.
Itâs important for us to take time for reflection. We often find the solutions when weâre not searching for them.
We donât become more productive overnight. Like everything in life, it requires efforts. Change doesnât happen if you just sit there and wait for it. Itâs important for all of us to learn more about our body and find ways to optimize our energy for a more successful and happy life.
