What have you done today? What did you achieve yesterday? Do you take on a can-do spirit when you’re challenged? How are your productivity levels? Or are you huddled up in your comfy chair deeply immersed in a movie or playing a Playstation game to avoid the challenge?
Working as a life coach in Brisbane, I’ve had to ensure my productivity is high. Consider these gems when deciding whether to do something productive or avoid it:
• Ponder your feelings. Reflect on your emotions after doing something productive versus wasting a few hours channel-surfing or just hanging out. Think about which situation makes you feel more positive and content.
• How are your organisational skills? Someone who’s organised usually finds it easier to accomplish desired goals.If you’re organised, you know where to find the correct tool quickly to put it to use. Living a disorganised existence means much time is lost trying to locate things. Therefore, productivity is reduced.
• Complete tasks in the morning when you’re rested. What’s cool about getting started early is that you can see signs of your productivity by noon. You may be tired, but having lunch will revive you for the afternoon, plus you’ll feel accomplished.
How you make your way through an average day in terms of your productivity may determine how pleased you are with life. If you find that you’re procrastinating too much, this article of mine could be what you need to get you to a better level of productivity: From Procrastination to Productivity.
