Now that our January blues have come to an end, it’s time to get serious about those New Year’s resolutions. Fact is, time is money, and sometimes we are our own enemy when it comes to managing our productivity.
There’s a notable distinction between being busy and being productive. Just because you have a jam-packed schedule and a long to-do list doesn’t mean you are getting anything done. I was at a conference yesterday, and I learned something very interesting about productivity. Did you know that an average person has an attention span of 7-8 seconds, where as a goldfish has 9? And to add to that, the moment we get interrupted at a task, it takes a total of 26 minutes to get back on track. How insane is that?! Think of all those times we were interrupted in a day, how much did we get accomplished? Probably not as much as we would like. Then, there is our good friend procrastination who doesn’t make our lives easier.
Productivity starts with goals. Clearly defined and measurable goals. Before we create and cast our vision for the upcoming year, take some time to reflect on the past. We need to evaluate our working style and make notes of that. Boosting productivity doesn’t necessary have to involve huge changes to routines or work life, it’s more so about adapting small changes to our current ways and doing so consistently. That’s how habits are formed.
If anyone is looking to get more done, be more, do more and have more this year, we have the perfect tool for you! Let’s strengthen our willpower and optimize our productivity together today. We deserve it!
