Here’s How to Stay More Productive in 2018
Almost every entrepreneur wishes to get more things done. To stay focused and productive at work, it takes as much effort as doing any important task. A study shows that nearly 57% of workers and managers strive industriously to manage their tasks and schedules, and meet deadlines.
If you want to give your productivity a real boost, here are some easy and simple tips that can help you get more work done in less time and stay more productive in 2018.  
 
Stop Checking Emails Constantly
Regardless of the importance of Emails as a viable communication tool, checking emails every so often proves to be a major work place distraction that hinders you from completing all your assigned tasks in a timely manner. A research suggests that employees spend on average 6.3 hours checking emails, with 3.2 hours devoted to work-related emails while 3.1 squandered on personal messages.
It is advised to set aside a specific time slot to check and respond to emails, such as after you have gotten an important task out of the way and can afford to solicit a few minutes for recreation. At the onset of each day, tick off something extremely important on your to-do list, before sparing time to check and respond to your emails. This way, you don’t get sucked into your inbox right at the beginning of your day.
 
Maintain a Healthy Sleeping Routine
If you are not taking care of your health, how can you expect to give your best and stay focused throughout the day? Aspire to get plenty of sleep, as sleep-deprived people are much more likely to experience anxiety and five times more apt to feel the tendrils of depression and loneliness. If you are not taking your snoozes seriously, you won’t be able to reach your peak productivity.
It is highly recommended to take proper rest to rejuvenate your body for the next day and give this activity a top priority just like you would all your other tasks or activities. Take at least seven to nine hours of sleep to become as productive as possible when you are awake. So, stick to a healthy sleeping regime, in order to stay fresh, make better decisions, perform well, and meet all your project deadlines.  
 
Create a Morning Routine
How you start your day can set the tone for how you will perform your tasks. Therefore, it is important to create a healthy morning routine. Successful leaders always wake up early to make time for activities that matter the most to them, such as meditation, exercise, spending quality time with family, gouging on a filling breakfast, creating a to-do list, or anything else that matters to them. You can also develop a morning routine that works best for you and try sticking to it.
Bonus Tip: Working out boosts your endorphin levels, reduces stress and amps up your productivity. You will feel fresh and energized to manage and organize your day by giving yourself that extra energy boost. In addition, exercising can increase your mental clarity for up to 4-10 hours post-exercise, which is why exercise is a crucial morning activity of almost every successful leader.
Do you know that Elon Musk, the famous mega-successful entrepreneur, works twice as much as your average boss? This is how he manages his super human productivity.
 
Write Down a List of Your Activities
Jotting down your daily tasks will help you be more organized, efficient and productive. One of the major benefits of scrawling things down is that you don’t inadvertently skimp on anything important as you drag through another weary day. A study suggests that writing down your ideas for getting your tasks done can avert you from overwhelming yourself.
 
Keep Track of Your Projects
If you want to take your business to unprecedented heights of success in 2018, keeping track of every single task, project, idea or activity that you commit to, is quintessential. Smart leaders leverage a wide array of stellar tools and apps to stay on track and keep everything organized. Lest they accidentally overlook an important task, successful entrepreneurs make a habit of relying on online calendar apps, to-do lists and task management software to enlist the important things that need to occupy their schedule and solicit their immediate attention.
 
Follow the Two-Minute Rule
If you want to accomplish all your tasks with more energy and productively, all you need to do is to follow the two-minute rule. As the rule has it, any activity that takes two minutes or less to complete should be attended to first. It is a rule that many successful entrepreneurs go by, as it allows them to quickly complete small tasks before they pile up, while giving them peace of mind.
 
If truth be told, it is an effective way to combat procrastination. The actual goal is to make it easier for you to get started on those tasks that need your immediate attention. This will not only help you complete your must-do tasks, but also give you a great sense of accomplishment. So, quit procrastinating, implement the two-minute rule at work, and get more work done in less time.
 
Organize Your Workspace
No matter if you work at a factory, a fashion store, via a home office or in a corporate environment, remember that your physical space matters mountains. If your workspace is needlessly cluttered or messy, you can’t be able to stay focused on tasks which need your attention. However, a well-organized, spruce, and tidy workspace is a true indication of an organized, focused and productive person who always completes their tasks on time and never misses a deadline.
 
Final Words
Believe it or not, staying productive is essential to growing your business. It is always important to follow the essential rules and productivity hacks which allow you to get more done, accomplish your business goals and take your business to the next level. So, are you ready to increase your productivity in 2018?
