Do this for better productivity

Do you ever find yourself with a huge to-do list, but absolutely no motivation to get any of it done?

We’ve all been there! You feel overwhelmed with the amount of work left to do, and it seems like there’s not enough time in the day to do it. Plus, let’s be honest: you’d rather be doing anything else right about now.

Luckily, there are a few quick ways to increase your productivity and motivation:

1. Do everything easy first

Shift the easy parts of your multi-step task to the front of your to-do list, and leave the tedious parts for last.

This way, you’ll know exactly what’s needed to finish the job instead of feeling like you have the majority left. It’ll give you a feeling of accomplishment to have checked something off of your to-do list — which will give you the momentum to keep pushing through the tough parts.

I love doing this with a multi-page PDF or presentation project. It’s better to know I just have a few things to fix on a few slides, than having the majority of the slides left to create.

2. Let yourself take a break

Give yourself permission to take a break, and re-visit your to-do list afterwards.

Go outside and take a walk. Did you skip a meal trying to get work done? Eat lunch or have a cup of coffee. Call up a friend for a quick chat. Anything to take your mind off of work for a bit.

Sometimes, allowing yourself time to rest and recharge is all you need to get back at it.

3. Find a future task that gets you excited

Even if it’s not due tomorrow, at least you can say you did something.

It’s easiest to build momentum for productivity when you’re working on something you enjoy. Find a project that you’re looking forward to and work on that when you’re struggling to find motivation. Then, you can snowball that momentum into the more tedious tasks.

4. Commit to a task for just 30 minutes

You can do anything for just 30 minutes, right?

Set a timer, turn your phone on airplane mode, and make yourself work on one task for 30 minutes. You will likely surprise yourself and finish the task. And even if it’s not completed, you will have put a dent in it and will feel way more motivated after the 30 minutes are up!

I'm Felter

the designer that non-designers love!

Why? Because good design is the difference between your ideal person scrolling past your post or actually taking action.

I used to work the 9-5 grind in the corporate world – like I was “supposed to” – until I blew it all up to do it my own way.

Now, I help non-designers, service providers, and business owners use good design in their branding, website, and content to book more clients and make more sales!
