We live in a demanding and distracting world. Being productive can sometimes feel like an impossible feat. Here are three ways to get more done without burning out:
- Keep one to-do list.
Include everything you want or need to do in one place. Writing it down helps get it off your mind and leaves you free to focus on the task in hand.
- Do the most important thing first
Before you leave work in the evening, decide what one thing you need to accomplish the next day. Do it first thing in the morning, when you are likely to have the most energy and fewest distractions.
- Schedule time for non-urgent things.
Its easy to get caught up in the pressing issues of the day. Block off time in your calender to do things that would otherwise get squeezed out, like writing, thinking creatively, or building relationship.
