Strategies for productivity



By Rajat Mishra 

We all want to get things done in a shorter amount of time and with the best results. It feels like an achievement to be more productive and the most successful people manage to optimise their talents, time, and overall productivity strategically. As we all are wanting to be more and more productive by each passing day, here are some productivity tips on how you can achieve your goals and work towards them:

Make a To-do list on sticky note

I bet that this small addition can change your life the same way it has done for me. So, what you have to do is take a big-sized sticky note in which you can write easily. Make a checkbox and write the thing you want to do. Like this –

        [task to be done] at [Time]

Write down all your to-do items and stick the sticky note in-front of your study table or shelf. If you follow this strictly, the results would be awesome.

Change your environment

This is a great technique to be more productive and it will keep you focused on the task at hand. Whatever you want to do, change your environment according to that. For example, if you want to study more, then your environment should be designed like that. There should be no distractions near the study table such as a phone, laptop, TV, food, etc. This tweak will allow you to reduce time-wastage.

Try the Pomodoro technique

The Pomodoro method is a time-blocking technique that can help compartmentalise your tasks into manageable 25-minute intervals. To use the pomodoro method, work for 25 minutes, and then take a five minute break in between. After four of such intervals, you can take a longer 15-30 minute break. This method of time blocking gives you the needed time in between work sessions to help maintain focus and do it sustainably. 

Follow the 5 minute rule

The 5 min rule is a technique to play around with your mind. To use this, you just have to say that I will do the [WORK] only for 5 mins. As you start doing it, after 5 min you will find it hard to not do. In most cases, people find it easy after they start doing something and usually don’t stop until the work is done.
