Practice These Routines To Boost Your Productivity

As professionals, we’re constantly on the lookout for new and creative ways to boost our productivity at work. But while “life hack” fads are destined to come and go with the seasons, there are some tried-and-true strategies that truly can have a noticeably positive impact on our day-to-day and long-term performance.

In this article, we’ll break down some of our favorite ways to increase your concentration, organization, productivity, and performance at work:

Utilize multiple schedules

Between our personal, professional, and social lives, most of us simply have too many appointments for one schedule to be able to manage. For this reason, it can be beneficial to use Google Calendar as well as a paper planner for making quick notes and schedule adjustments. Project management tools such as Trello or Monday are also useful for keeping track of everything in your life!

Organize your schedule around personal creative ebbs and flows

Everyone has those times during the day when they feel consistently energized and engaged. There are also those times when we experience fatigue or have difficulty focusing. There’s some variation from person to person, which means it’s important for each of us to understand our own “creativity schedule” and to organize our workdays accordingly.

Set aside time in the day for communication

Leaving your email open or keeping your phone in front of you is sometimes necessary, but it can also lead to some serious distractions. If you’re able to, try closing your email and putting your phone away when there’s urgent work that needs to be done. Once you have some free time later in the day, that can then be the perfect time to reply to emails or texts.
