There are 3 steps we all need to take when we want to create personal motivation, once followed you will increase your work place productivity quickly
Step 1 To Increase Productivity
Time Slots – it is easy, in the age of technology, to switch from one task to another.
In a team meeting you answer a badly timed email. At your desk an idea takes you away from you task while you search resources fro your idea on Google. A report writing task is interrupted by a social media query.
To increase productivity set particular time slots for various task. 9:30-10:00 reply to emails, 10:00-12:00 complete task one. After a 30 minute lunch break, spend 30 minutes answering your morning emails, follow this by task 2.
Setting time slots saves collectively a large portion of time over a week. Even better having focus on only one task, increase production.
Step 2 To Increase Productivity
Focus on the pain of not completing a task
Pain is a big motivator. When you procrastinate you focus on the pain of the task. To create productivity focus on the pain of not completing your task.
Have you ever procrastinated and then at the last minute you took action? This is because your pain focus change from the pain of the task to the pain of not completing the task. The strategy does create action, but last minute action doesn’t give you room for error. Your work isn’t the best it can be, there is no time to check for mistakes and you will, due to time, take short cuts.
As you feel procrastination coming on, stop, and change your pain focus.
