5 Ideas On How To Boost Your Productivity

  1. 1. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy 5 Ideas on How to Boost Your Productivity
  2. 2. Whether you’re a property professional or in any other line of work, your level of productivity is critical to your success. You can often find yourself lost in a sea of ‘busy’ work and suddenly realise there’s no time left in the day. Sometimes you can’t even see any real output from your day.  www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com
  3. 3. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com If this is something you can relate to there are some simple tips and techniques you can employ to boost your productivity and improve your time management. Time is your most valuable asset, you need to use it well.  Here are three tips in regards to your mind-set before we go into the 5 productivity boosting techniques:
  4. 4. Putting pressure on yourself to get everything done is not going to be productive. You can easily slip into a feeling of being overwhelmed and your productivity levels will seriously dip. Be sensible about how much you can achieve and work through each task. Don't overload www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com
  5. 5. Another way you lose time is by going into reactive mode. By this we mean picking up phone calls, answering emails, basically responding to other people’s needs and working by their schedule instead of your own. You need to avoid these distractions so that you can concentrate on your own goals. Avoid going into reactive mode www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com
  6. 6. This is a hard one for lots of people as it can be nice when someone asks for some of your time. Whether it is giving someone half an hour to help them with a problem or having a chat that isn’t work related, you need to be strict and learn to say no. Working for yourself will suddenly change your outlook, as your pay-check now depends on how productive you are with your time. Learn to say no www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com
  7. 7. This is a hard one for lots of people as it can be nice when someone asks for some of your time.

  8. 8.                                  It can be too easy to concentrate on                           getting tasks done and not reflect on where                       your time is being spent. To understand the                  time consuming activities better, you need to            track what you’re doing. For two weeks, record what      you do. Use a blank piece of paper and plot out where your time is going.  www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com 1. Track What You Do5 IDEAS ON HOW TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
  9. 9.                                       On the paper, put the days of the                                 week across the top and half hour                           segments down the side. Set your alarm for                       every half hour and at each interval, add your                activity to the tracking sheet. You can download a            template of this time tracking sheet from the Getting       Started Kit. After the two weeks, review your time tracking sheet to see where your time is being spent. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com Track What  You Do
  10. 10.                                People incorrectly think that                          multitasking gets things done quicker. In                      fact, it usually has the complete opposite               effect as you’re splitting your attention all over           the place and not actually getting the tasks     completed. So avoid trying to multitask. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com Track What  You Do

  12. 12.                                The Pomodoro Technique is a great way                          to keep your mind focused on one particular                     task. What you do is set yourself 25 minutes to               complete a task without any distractions. Use the          stopwatch on your phone to time the 25 minutes and    when the time is up, you’ll find you’ve been concentrating more effectively on the task. Have a quick break at each 25 minute interval and start again, with the same approach. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com 2. Use the Pomodoro Technique5 IDEAS ON HOW TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
  13. 13. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com It sounds really simple but it actually works. You will see that you’re less tempted to read the email that just pinged in your email box or be tempted to quickly browse your Facebook feed. You’ll see straight away that those 25 minute sectors are being used more efficiently.
  14. 14.                                Stop thinking that you always need more                          time! Parkinson’s Law states that work will                     expand to fill the allocated time. We work more               productively when we have less time to complete          tasks. Think about the day before you go on a holiday    and how much work you get done. If you could work like that every day, how productive could you be?! www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com 3. Parkinson's Law5 IDEAS ON HOW TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
  15. 15.                                Using frameworks and systems are a                         really effective way to free up time. Stephen                     Covey’s Time Management Matrix is an              excellent example of how frameworks can help to          boost productivity. Covey’s matrix basically helps you     to prioritise key tasks. By drawing 4 quadrants, you can split your tasks in order of importance and urgency. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com 4. Covey's Framework5 IDEAS ON HOW TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
  16. 16. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com Here is a simple image to give you an idea but you can download the full template in the Getting Started Kit. Using this matrix, put each of the tasks from your To Do list into the relevant quadrant. The items that are not urgent but important are things like your long-term strategy and preparation, you don’t need it immediately but it is still highly important. Urgent and Important Not Urgent but Important Urgent but not Important Not Urgent and Not Important Covey's Framework
  17. 17.                              One way that you can save huge amounts of                         your own time is by utilising the opportunity to                   outsource some tasks. If your own hourly value is             over £50 for example, you shouldn’t be performing          tasks that are worth less than this.  www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com 5. Utilise outsourcing opportunities 5 IDEAS ON HOW TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
  18. 18.                                     There are so many jobs that can be                              outsourced, so employing a Virtual Assistant                         or paying freelancers to deliver some of your                    tasks will give you lots of time back. It can take               time to set up the systems and processes but in the           long-run it can be hugely beneficial. www.GoliathSourcingAcademy.com 5. Utilise outsourcing opportunities
