We all have only 24 hours in our day. However, certain people manage to spend that time better than others. This is one of the reasons successful people are successful. They manage to get more done in less time than the average human. If you want to reach your goals and succeed in business and life, it’s imperative that you work on increasing your productivity. Here are three of my tips on how you can get more done in less time, and get closer to your goals every day.
1. Set Up 3 Important To-Do Items Every Day
This was a game changer for me: Set up only three, though important, to-do items every day. I remember reading about this tip in the 4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, and it was incredible how much it boosted my daily productivity. Before that, I used to have pages long to-do lists that just seemed to build and build every day, and I didn’t really feel I got the most out of my days. However, by setting up 3 important tasks every day, and executing them every day – I could finally visibly see my business and life moving forward at a daily pace.
I was suddenly able to effectively go from point to point on the list every day, without spending time and effort on figuring which of the 15 to-do tasks to tackle next. I started to focus fully on the things that actually mattered, the three top tasks that actually made a significant difference. But best of all, is the amazing feeling of looking at a totally empty to-do list at the end of each day, and not a never ending and growing list of items of varying importance. Narrowing down my lists to 3 items, though 3 extremely important items with high impact, finally made me able to truly boost my productivity and get more done every day.
