It’s easy to get carried away with multiple tasks at a time in order to feel busy, but you may not even be productive.
Here are four ways that can help ensure your productivity and stop the cycle of feeling like nothing is getting done:
1. One Task Per Day
You won’t believe how much time you save by having a set day for each task. You get to focus on that one subject or task field, rather than trying to multitask and end up doing nothing well in the process.
If your tasks are grouped together such as admin, marketing, meetings etc., it’s easier to be more organized with scheduling appointments and setting goals when all of those topics have their own designated days separate from other subjects!
You work hard all week, so you deserve a break. But there are still some things that need to be done before Friday comes around! One way of ensuring your weekends aren’t overworked is setting an admin day where you can finally cross off those pesky tasks from last week and prepare for the next one without any interruptions or procrastination getting in your way.
You may not know it yet but just by reading this article, I bet now every Monday feels like Sunday already with more energy left over for socializing at night because you get most of what needs taking care of outta the way on Mondays – better start considering it as good time management if not anything else.
By scheduling your meetings on a specific day of the week, you can then schedule an entire workday around those appointments. This will allow for more productivity during regular working hours and avoid any potential task switching that may happen when trying to balance other responsibilities like marketing tasks at the same time. Keeping everything organized in your agenda also means less stress because if anything changes it’s easy to see what else needs updating too!
2. Stay Accountable To Yourself
To make sure that you are being productive and not busy, it is important to evaluate yourself on a regular basis. By doing weekly and monthly assessments of your progress, goals, tasks completed; distractions or procrastination holding you back can be better identified so they may be avoided in the future.
For every week’s assessment – did you reach set goals? If not then why?
Check for any positives habits achieved this past week like completing 1-2 hours more than last weeks work time etc., identify negatives such as distractions which took up 2 hours of extra attention from other matters yet were avoidable with proper scheduling during the day (or night).

3. Check Your Priorities
You’re probably familiar with to-do lists, but it can be overwhelming when too many tasks end up on your list. Try choosing three main priority tasks for the day – anything additional you get done in that day is a bonus. This helps focus your mind and leaves you feeling less overwhelmed (which is always easier). As I said earlier, it’s also helpful because of its sheer difficulty or monotony if we start our workday by doing the hardest task first so at least there’s something more interesting waiting after!
You know how hard making decisions can be sometimes? Well some people have found an answer: To Do Lists are really good sources of relief from stress as they allow us to organise what needs finishing each week into manageable chunks
You don’t need to say yes when you know that your answer should in fact be no. It’s super important for entrepreneurs and people with mental or emotional health issues not to over-commit themselves, so make sure that if something stresses you out it doesn’t end up on your plate!
4. Make SMART Goals For Yourself
In order to achieve our big goals, we have to start small. Breaking down those larger objectives into manageable tasks is the first step towards achieving them. If you want your team’s project outcomes and initiatives succeed then let’s get started!
Do you feel like your productivity is a mess? Trying to juggle that work-life balance can be hard, but it’s important not to set yourself up for failure.
If we want our businesses and clients succeed, then we need them doable so they don’t lead us down the path of burnout or low self esteem as an entrepreneur.
