How to be More Productive

We all could use a little more time. Time for our work, our mission, our family and our friends. What if we could actually create more time? We like to think that we can. Here are some of the top ways to make more time for the things that matter to you.

Schedule Your Day

It is easy to feel like time is flying by when you don’t schedule your day. Creating hour by hour blocks is the quickest way to increase productivity and gain an understanding of exactly where your time is going.

Take on Challenges First

For the most part, we experience the highest levels of productivity in the morning. Schedule your most challenging tasks earlier in the day (ideally before lunch) so that you can set yourself up to win.

Take More Breaks

It sounds really counter intuitive. But taking intentional 15-20 minute breaks can tremendously boost your levels of productivity in your work time.  Set breaks between 60-90 minute work blocks and see your productivity sky rocket! 

Stop Multi-tasking

By engaging with multiple tasks, we actually diminish our ability to be optimally productive in what we want to accomplish. Give full presence to the things you do and start experiencing a boost in productivity instantly.

We all want more time. By implementing these strategies, we can actually do just that. By boosting our productivity, we can give more time to the things that matter and we can experience more of life.
