When it comes to getting my stuff done, I feel so happy. I feel accompleshed and my life is on the right track. Therefore, to get my stuff done, I should flow some rules or guides at work . For this reason, I’m addicted to productivity and creativity ( as an architect, my work requires both ). I read books and articles about productivity every day. I have gathered some tips that I have shared with my friends on Facebook everyday for 15 days. Here’s the tips that I collect.
Tip 01: Start working early
Start working one hour earlier in the morning. If your jop starts at 8, you should be at your desk at 7. The secret is to beat the traffic and to work more productive with no distractions from others, especially in the open space offices.
Tip 02: Do difficult tasks first
Do and finish your most difficult task first, so take it off from your way. Getting annoyed things done first in the morning, give you the motivation to finish the rest.
Tip 03: Split your large task into smaller tasks
Tip 04: Prioritize your life
Prioritize your tasks. Start with the most important to less important. Do NOT waste your precious time on things that is nice to do, but not important to do.
Tip 05: Say NO
Try to say “No” sometimes. Saying NO to unwanted tasks form other people could save your precious time.
Tip 06: Unplug
DO NOT save your social media password in your browser. The 30 Seconds you are trying to log in is the time when you realize you are wasting your precious time. Use anything to unplug yourself from social media. We waste a lot of time everyday just checking Facebook.
Tip 07: Do Nothing
Include “Do Nothing” in you to do-list. Just enjoy your day. Sometimes you need time off. Take advantage of weekends. When you come back to work, will feel energize to get some stuff done.
Tip 08: Empty/Charge rule
Before sleeping, write down ( on paper, Smartphone, or tablet) everything in your mind, even things that don’t have value meaning for you. In the morning, read your thoughts again. The secret is to empty your brain at night and to get enough sleep, and to recharge it in the morning.
Tip 09: Planning a head
Tip 10: Simplicity
Don’t complicate your to-do tasks. Your work flow comes with simplicity.
Tip 11: White Noise
Tip 12: 10 min Silence
First thing to do in the morning, take 10min of silence and thinking before starting your day. The key is to think about your thinking.
Tip 13: Read a lot
Minimal, read 3 articles a day and one book a year. Data is everywhere. Get this data to become information. Use information to become experience. Eventually, you will turn to an experts.
Tip 14: Write your task at night
Write down your To-Do task at night before going to sleep. Let your subconscious works on your tasks all the night before the next day.
