Productivity guns going for it, I mean?
For the longest time, mine weren’t. I often used to be busy being busy and just feel like I was spinning my wheels – until I changed my approach.
When it comes to getting into gear with our productivity, here are the top 3 tips that helped me, and maybe handy for you or someone you know –
- Plan your priorities the night before, pick 1 to do first and get that 1 thing
It’s easy to get into doing ‘stuff’ rather than focusing on the activities that give us results. By results, I mean those ones that are actually based on our values and goals. Picking 3 and prioritizing 1 helps me really put my focus where it needs to be. 1
More often than not, most of us are actually dehydrated. When we’re thirsty, it’s too late. I’ve been amazed by the difference I experience in mental clarity when I’m hydrated.
As a general guide to help us stay hydrated, drink 2litres of clean, filtered water (warm or cool) a day. It can help to add a squeeze of lemon, whilst remembering that tea, coffee and sodas don’t count!
- Practice the mighty pause.
Sometimes, simply stopping and pausing lets us reset and create the space to intentionally choose the next step (rather than falling down a facebook- or IG-rabbit hole).
I’m curious to hear if these tips are ones you already use.
In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you for this week’s #AliveWithFi 😊
