In this blog post I will write about how you can stay more focussed and therefore be more productive.
One thing is essential to stay focussed: Always have your goal in mind. What do you want to achieve? Is what you are currently doing getting you closer to your goal?
Have manageable chunks: Break down your goals into milestones with dates. This way you can work your way through it and focus on each task individually.
Go through all the tasks and prioritise them. Are there any things that depend on other people and you might have to send it to them so they can get started with their part? Which tasks are really urgent, which ones need to be done soon and which ones can wait for whenever you have time?
Then focus on one task and finish it. Don’t try to start all at ones and then never finish one of them properly.
Ensure that nothing will distract you. Identify what is distracting you: Friends, calls, social media, TV, music… Then make sure you switch these off. I mention some tools that will help you with that in my free eBook.
One last tip that will help you saving time: If you are driving a lot but also want to read books, just buy the audiobook and listen to it while you are driving. Also, there are a lot of podcasts that will help you and your business to develop further. I listed the ones I am listening to in my free eBook as well.
The next blog post will show you the books I recommend for time management.
