Carve out time where you’re unavailable to others.
Time on your own is just as important as time with others. It gives you the opportunity to think things over, to plan out your course of action on larger projects without interruption from others. In a constantly connected world, time alone is one of the most valuable commodities you can have.
Big projects require a set plan, who’s going to tackle what, deadlines for every aspect.So next time you’re undertaking a big project, start by meeting with your team and coming up with a firm plan. Not only will this help make sure the project is gets done, but it will keep your team accountable and help cut down on your own stress.
Track of your strengths and weaknesses and be ready to change your habits to improve your productivity. Keep a “Stop Doing” list to track your bad habits, and check them off once you’ve broken them. See what activities take up the most amount of your time, and come up with ways to shave a few minutes off each one. Even small improvements to your productivity will add up and save you lots of time in the long run.
You’re going to have to take care of it eventually, so putting something off is only going to make it take longer. Plus, completing a big project energizes you, and helps motivate you to continue being productive.
