Most of the time I ask myself how some people get things done in a short period of time while other people take a hefty amount of time to get even the simplest things completed. A lot of people think that people who get things done in a relatively short period of time are special or gifted in some way they aren't , but if you look deeper, it’s not about genetic advantage or intelligence but rather what they do to get things done quicker than most.
These people are often productive, but how does one become extremely productive?
- Know that your time is limited
If you plan on doing something you really know is important, you better do it cause there’s no better time in this world to do something than NOW. If you clearly understand that life is made out of time, you would do your best to accomplish your goals cause tomorrow may not be guaranteed. Yep, tomorrow can’t be guaranteed, and that’s a fact of life. Since we live our lives rather subconsciously we believe that tomorrow will still be a good enough day to get some of our goals completed, but unfortunately, some of our goals don't get completed due to some of the things that happen on this planet, especially things that distracts us from getting some of our important things completed. So, whatever you are going thorough, at least manage to make time because time is all that counts when you are on this planet.
- Stay very focused
Nowadays it’s easy to get distracted by all the things that happen around you. Things like television, facebook, irritating friends can make it hard for you to accomplish what you really need to get done. If you can immensely channel your attention to your tasks, you’ll be amazed by the things you can produce in a single day. It’s not easy staying focused…. I know that for a sure fact, but with practice and consistency you will be a natural.
- Kiss procrastination good bye
We all know that procrastinators lie to themselves. For example, “ I feel like doing this task tomorrow cause I’ll have more time” or “ I have all the time in the world to complete the task”, but in reality they are only saying this cause they don’t want to do whatever it is they are supposed to do. If you really want to get things done, work on eliminating your procrastination cause if you don’t, you’ll be less productive and more excusive.
- Work hard and work smart
Some websites will say that you don’t need to work hard, but only smarter, but in reality they are completely wrong. In order to get the best results in anything you do, you need to work hard on it together with strategic working. People who normally succeed, work hard on their ideas and work smarter to make them manifest. So, if you want to be really productive, put some hard work and smart work and then you’ll see how productive you’ll be.
