Super productive people are productive for one simple reason, they do things differently than nonproductive individuals.So what is their secret? I am glad you asked, here is the list of 11 things that super productive people do.
1. Do not postpone work
When it comes to the time of execution super productive people they never postpone it, they set up a block to a certain task and they will sit there doing it until it is done.
2. Plan the next day before the end of the day
One of the secrets of getting things done is planning them the day before, this gives you an advantage because from the moment of waking up you know exactly what you are going to do for that day, there is no time to waste on deciding which task to tackle first.
3. They start with the most difficult tasks
Unproductive people start easy tasks and when it reaches the time to do the difficult ones they are already tired and they can do them effectively.
Super productive people always start with the difficult tasks first.
4. They know the difference between urgent and non-urgent
When it comes to planning, it is very important to differentiate between urgent matters and non-urgent matters.
5. Their meetings have a defined schedule
Super productive people they have a defined schedule for their meetings, unlike of unreproductive people who want to participate in everything.
6. They know how to say no
It does not matter if it is an invitation to a dinner or unprogrammed meeting, super productive people they know how and when to say no so that they can stick to their schedule.
7. Check the email in a defined time
I have been a victim for this one, I used to wake up and check my emails the first thing when I turn my computer up, my reason was if I had a client or last-minute meeting it was time to catch up.
The problem of this is that it takes you a lot of time because you will start reading and be replying them and before you know it you wasted two hours in it.
8. They do not multitask
Multitasking is the killer of productivity, if you try doing many tasks at the same time you will end up wasting more time and none of them you will do to the required standard.
9. They take time off to recharge batteries
Super productive people they are good at resting and recharging their energy, they know that a fresh mind and body can increase your productivity.
10. They delegate
People who are very productive they know when they can delegate, they delegate all tasks that they can’t do them as effective or those boring tasks, as a rule, if you have someone who can do 80% or more of a certain task as you, delegate.
11. They use technology to their advantage
Another thing that super productive people do is that they use the technology to their advantage, every day there are new apps and software that can help them to automate some tasks and they use them to increase their productivity.
