Humans are the most developed and intelligent of all the species on the planet, and yet, we find ourselves starting the day watching videos of dancing cats while sipping on a cup of coffee. The tiny little white screens that we carry around with us every day and unknowingly, affecting our productivity and making us more distracted.
But you knew that already didn’t you? So how exactly would you want to tackle it? Keep reading to find out just that and lots more about how to squeeze out your maximum potential and make the most out of the 24 hours that you have with you.
Kick Start Your Day
The first 60 minutes of your day is the most important, and if you are able to make the most of them, you’ll be able to kick-start your day with energy, enthusiasm and an amazing drive to do more. For the next 60 days, make it a point to spend the first 60 minutes of your day doing whatever it is that takes you closer to that one ultimate goal that you have in life.
Set Key Times & Be Hard to Reach
Studies have found that our bodies and minds are at their peak state during the early hours of the day. Make it a point to set out some key times dedicated specifically to your work- and be very hard to reach during those times- no calls, no texts, and zero distractions. Your environment influences your productivity in ways you can’t imagine, and that’s exactly why being in a zone of no distraction during those peak hours can boost your productivity like crazy!
Keep Yourself Going
Yes, things can and will go downhill sometimes, but keep going. Read motivational books, watch inspirational videos, take courses, and do everything it takes to get yourself back on track. Persistence is the key to making things work for you.
Choose Your Friends Well
Yes, friendship doesn’t really happen by choice, but it is always a good idea to be picky with the people you be around. Be more around people who are motivated and driven towards achieving their goals- those who inspire you and make you feel more positive and full of energy only within a few minutes of talking to them.
Having a minimalistic attitude is the way to go when it comes to boosting your productivity. Why? Because when you keep things simple, and you don’t have a ton of complex ideas and to-do lists buzzing around in your head, you’ll be able to do your tasks better. Simple isn’t it?
Be With Nature
Being more in touch with nature has a calming and relaxing effect on your body, but that’s not just it. It also helps your mind to become more focused and concentrate better. Some studies have also found that being in touch with nature can boost your creativity.
There isn’t enough that can be said about the power of visualizing yourself achieving your goals and dreams, every night before you go off to sleep. In your mind’s eye, viewing yourself reach your highest potential right before you retire for the day can have a very positive impact, and can boost your productivity even if you’re surrounded by distraction.
