How can you do to make the most of your time and produce more? In this article we will talk about it and leave some tips that will help you to better manage your time and produce more content.
Managing your time better
To produce more in less time you need to manage your time better. For that we recommend that you define your priorities, plan and simplify. You must also avoid the things that steal your time.
Defining your priorities – Have you made a list of what you need to do and determined if that task is important or not? One of the main things you need to do is organize yourself through a list, calendar, checklist, etc. Even mind maps can help you manage your time better and get more done.
Maybe you like being free and don't want every minute of your life to be controlled by a schedule. It's not easy to define the importance of a task, let alone following a list or calendar, but if you can't do that, you won't be able to manage your time well.
The first step is to define what is most important to you, in case you can't follow your list because of other things, try to simply eliminate the immutable things. Know how to say “no” to things that are unimportant or time consuming. Avoid trying to do too many tasks, otherwise you will never be productive.
Don't waste your time
The things that steal the most time besides distractions are indecision, procrastination and perfectionism. Calmly review each of these 4 points below and make two changes! Eliminate what hinders you!
Distractions - Social networks, music, youtube, cell phone, whatsapp, games, series, laziness, visits and etc. The number of distractions that steal your time does not end. But it is not possible to end distractions, it is necessary to learn to live with them. It is not difficult to avoid using them when you are fully dedicated to productivity. Just close it, leave it on silent and etc.
Indecision - I'm super indecisive, I have a great difficulty choosing things. Ideas abound, but where to start? How to do this? How much time should I spend? If you have a hard time choosing, just pick any one and you're done! Avoid wasting your time deciding what is best, otherwise you will end up with nothing.
Procrastination - One of the most complicated things, I have a hard time with it myself. I ordered a book to study a language, and it's been 2 years and I never took it to study the language, and look that language is part of my job. Procrastination is the act of putting things off, avoid putting things off, be punctual. It's not easy, but it's worth it.
Perfectionism – If you are a person who seeks perfectionism, it is better to give up. Not with all the time in the world you will be able to produce perfect things. Don't look for perfection! Be aware that everyone makes mistakes, and you shouldn't worry about it.
