Here are 3 Keys to Become Super Productive
Step 1: Always Prioritize
What is the one thing that is most important to you right now? One ultimate key to being super productive is being clear with your goals and knowing the top 3 activities that draws you closer to your goal.
Becoming super productive is understanding that some things are more important than the other. So instead of trying to do all activities, you should focus on the most important top 3 activities that draws you closer to your one and most important goal.
Making money online is a choice and you must learn to choose those money making activities that will be generating more income for you. Doing a hundred things without a clear direction will not help you achieve your goals and that is you should identify the top e activities that draws you closer to your goal and make them your Priority.
Always Say No
If you want to be super productive. “Always Say No“. I learnt this lesson the hard way and now, I always say no to anything that I didn’t prepare, anticipate or know will mess up my already planned day.
It is always easier to say “yes” after a no than to say a “no” after a yes.
So, while you prioritize and focus on your top 3 activities, say no to anything that is not inline with your goals, and anything that will become an obstacle to actualizing your objective for that day. If you are going to take up a project or an office, take your time to ruminate over it and don’t be afraid to ask for more time and find out the time, commitment and resources required.
If you fail to do this, don’t blame anyone when you get involved int he rat race and end up… MISERABLE.
Quit Multi tasking
I used to think that multitasking was a great thing, after all, you can do two things at the same time and finish them all at once. But I forgot the wise old saying that says:
“A hunter who chases two rats at once will end up with none”
And that was my case. I always end up making terrible and stupid mistakes, I had difficulty paying attention to details and it is very important. Sometimes, I get lost in the middle and really find it hard recalling information, or switching from my current task to the previous one.
One of my favourite scripture verses reads:
“My child, don’t be too busy with too many things. If you try to do too much, you will suffer for it. You won’t be able to finish your work, and you won’t be able to get away from it either.” – Sirach 11:10
I cultivated the habit of doing just one thing at a time and I discovered that you get a lot more work done that way. And your work will be more accurate and better compared to what it used to be when you are multitasking.
So if you want to be super productive, always single task and fully immerse yourself into your current activity.
