Never put your hardest task to be the last one on your list. Take the bite and make it first. If you let it be the last one, you’ll end up thinking about it all day long while doing smaller stuff. It will scary you even more.
Solving the most time-consuming task will give you great sense of accomplishment, and other tasks will seem to you like a piece of cake when you swallow the big bite first.
4.Early Bird – Or Late Sleeper
If you are a morning person and you wake up at 5:00 AM to start your day, then do it. It means you have the most production skills at morning and you should follow your inner voice.
Yet, if you are a morning sleeper…it s perfectly fine too.
Everybody has its own different rituals and productivity hours which should be followed. You do yours…and start the day whenever you please!
Making deadlines to accomplish tasks can help you achieving your goals faster. Less time you have, better and faster you’ll get your job done.
After finishing a task – give yourself a reward of 10-15 min break to gather some strength to carry on.
Why deadlines are good?
They are pushing you one step further and make you think much clearer.
Less time=better results+ much work done.
If it is possible, try to get rid of any distraction while you work.
Simply shut down your computer, switch your phone off and try to concentrate. If necessary, put some music playing if it enhances your focus.
If you have a study, work there and make it look like as business environment. Get the feeling that you are at the office – only without any colleagues in.
But, if you work in an office with too many people in it, it is hard not to be distracted.
If there is possibility, find quieter place to get your job done.
Do your best to avoid distractions at work!
7.Take A Break
If you want to have high productivity, it is necessary to have breaks in between.
Set some time off in your schedule, so you can give yourself an exercise, walk, some quiet time and few minutes of piece of mind.
It will not only refresh your mind, but it will bring your focus back again.
8.Write Your Goals
When you write down your goals and you pin them on a so-called “wishing board”, you set off your thoughts towards goals and you promote their chance of achievement.
It is the power of one single thought.
By looking them in front of you every single day, you provoke situations to come along that will make your wishes come true.

You only need to release a positive attitude and see your success coming.

Compare to successful people and do it in a healthy way.

Analyze what they are doing, so you can extract their best practices for your own improvement.
Admiration for other people success will lead towards your own success.
Again – don’t get envy, just be joyful and take the best of their practice.
If you find it difficult to do some task on your own, you should always request some help.
It is important to give up some control and delegate certain tasks.
And, if you really want to focus more on your priorities and become highly successful, you’ll have to put some trust to others, for things that are less important to you.
