We all know it takes practice and dedication to be productive in both our personal and professional lives. It's possible for us to focus so much on work that our personal development is neglected. It's also true that we can spend too much time dabbling in personal affairs that our professionalism suffers. So, how do you balance the two?
Utilize These 3 Tips For Increasing The Power of Your Productivity:
- Develop Your Overall Happiness - Regardless of what people think, happiness in both our personal and professional lives is key. If you're not thrilled about where you are and what you're doing, CHANGE IT! There's nothing worse than being miserable. When we are authentic to our own happiness, we can then become a contribution to the world around us.
- Create Detailed "To-Do Lists" and Prioritize Your Tasks - By listing duties and goals each day and numbering them based on their level of importance, it immediately increase our power to achieve these tasks. Spend the first few minutes of the day, or the last few minutes of day preparing for the next, to boost personal and professional success. You'll be surprised at just how much you can actually accomplish in one day with a detailed and prioritized plan!
- Assess Your Ongoing Progress - As the saying goes, "Little by little does the trick". Let each item crossed off on your to-do list be a mini victory. Maybe you accomplished a task quicker than you thought, give yourself a pat on the back (or do a little happy dance). Maybe you underestimated the time it would take for you to complete a task... just be flexible and re-evaluate your priorities. Either way, assessing our expectations and how well we meet them is crucial to the well-being of our success.
Keep in mind, the power of productivity is based on a delicate balance between personal and professional satisfaction. To be happy and productive, you must enjoy what you're doing, accomplish tasks that are important to you and practice flexibility in assessing your overall progress.
