Since I’ve been hard at work creating my new course Master your Life with Productivity I’ve been reading all about productivity, watching videos, and trying to learn all I can and implement new time management and tips and techniques to be more productive.
I know many of you feel discouraged about learning to be more productive. You’ve tried things in the past and they didn’t work or were too hard to stick to. So you feel like productivity is a weakness for you and something you fail at.
So if you want to be more productive you need to figure out why it’s so hard to be productive. That way you know where you are likely to mess up in the process and how to avoid those missteps.
Top reasons why you failed at being productive
Too many distractions
This is what messed me up for years in terms of productivity. There were too many distractions and I was always trying to multi task and my focus was never on one task.
You may think that multitasking will improve your productivity but the opposite is true. When you are multitasking your productivity drops and you actually get done less.
So making a few tweaks to things to eliminate distractions can make a huge difference on your level of producticity.
Turn off notifications on your phone so that you are not distracted by beeps or dings all day long. That and schedule times to check your email so you aren’t hitting refresh all day. Then getting sucked into emails that can wait.
They don’t know what is most important and can’t prioritize
With so many items on their to-do list they fall into the mindset that it all matters and all needs to get done.
The thing is that when we do that we lose focus on what really matters and needs to be done the most.
Learning to prioritize the tasks that are most important and the things that have to be done first will save you so much time in the long run.
This is a big topic that I cover in Master your Life with Productivity because it is so important and learning how to do it well is an important skill to learn.
They don’t have a plan for success
One of the biggest secrets to being successful with time management is to have a plan. Without a plan you make it very hard for you to be successful.
When you have a goal that you want to achieve you need to break it down into smaller pieces and make a plan for how to get those piece achieved.
Like with creating this course I’m doing. I had my big goal of having a course and then I broke it down on how I wanted to create and market the course. Then I mapped out a plan to get each step accomplished.
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish or be more productive at. It’s so important to have a plan to help you get there.
