Are you having a hard time focusing and being productive? These productivity tips are perfect for all the girl bosses out there!
Hi friends! Today we are talking all about being productive! This can be for any girl bosses out there, whether you are a stay-at-home-mom, a full-time student, or even if you work full-time and have a side-hustle — these tips are for anyone!
Optimize Your Work Space
Personally, I think one of the most important productivity tips is to have a tidy and organized desk. You don’t have to have a ton of decor or knick-knacks — optimizing your work space means having things that help you work better and eliminating things that don’t help. But we’ll get to that point later. If you are someone that needs some background noise, try working with a fan on, or even some light music. Another thing to keep in mind, is having a comfy chair — that’s a MUST!
Prioritize Your To-Do List
Start by making a general to-do list, then pick the TOP 3 things that need to get done ASAP. Prioritize those 3 things, once you’ve finished with your top 3 priorities of the day, move on to the rest of your to-do list. This keeps your list a bit more simple and easier to get done, which in turn motivates you more.
Limit All Distractions
Stash your phone in a drawer if you have to, block social media websites, keep your desk clutter free — anything to keep you focused!
Schedule A Dedicated Planning Session
At the end of the day, plan for the next day — it doesn’t have to be anything perfect, just jot down what you have to get done the following day. This makes it easier to begin your day.
Time blocking has become a big thing in my life lately. I usually work in hour increments — once an hour has passed, I stop what I’m doing and move on to my next task. This keeps the flow going and also keeps me focused. I’ve also noticed that I get more done this way.
Learn To Delegate
We can’t do it all — so learn to pass on a few things to others. Use this time to work on other important things that do need your attention.
The last thing you want is to get burned out, so take breaks. Personally, I prefer a lot of small breaks, instead of one long break. But do what works for you and your work flow.
