The year has reached that weird point where things are starting to pick up and get busier again after the slump of 2020. With all of this new hustle and bustle it can be hard to get back in the groove of things. Finding the motivation to be productive and get things done seems to be a side effect of the pandemic.
With so many people in same boat, here are 3 tips on how to start feeling productive again!
1. Document Your Goals
I’m sure you have heard of these or a variation of these before. SMART goals are made with 5 things in mind and have a fun acronym to help you remember.
You want to be specific when listing out goals. Use the 5 W’s (what, why, who, where and which)
When goals are measurable you can track your process and stay focus. This helps keep you motivated.
Goals need to be realistic. If you have any hope of completely them, you want them to at least be within reach. Think of things that push you out of your comfort zone but are not impossible to accomplish.
Does this goal make sense with compared to other goals or does this goal matter to you?
Time Bound –
With a due date set for each goal this allows you to have something to work towards. This can help keep distractions at bay.
Write things down. When you are constantly bombarded with one digital thing after another (facetime with family, zoom meeting at work, binge watching Bridgerton until 2AM) the use of pen and paper can be a nice break for your brain and is proven to help you remember tasks and stay focused.
In order to be productive throughout the day a really important factor is being productive first thing in the morning. A good morning routine should be whatever makes you feel relaxed and ready for the day. Could be a short walk with your pup, a cup of coffee and a book or a small session of yoga. Whatever relaxes you and gets your mind in the right focus for the day.
