These 18 Ways to Increase Productivity for Internet Marketers are ultra effective and absolutely must be treated as such.
Eighteen ways to increase productivity should give you enough to get pumped.
Apply just a few and you will notice a difference if you are not used to being this disciplined with yourself.
If you want to use the ways to increase productivity then you can give these hacks you choose three weeks or more before you make a judgement on how much more you have done.
This is just because it takes three weeks to make a habit. Then you will have no choice but to become more productive as a direct result of memorizing and making the habit.
When working at home:
These tricks may aid.
1.Work 15 minutes.
Use any timer. Your bloodflow is far from optimal when you work from home. Unless you stand and type that is. – I must admit I have some tasks where I sit and type and type as I do now and it is not in my best interest to just get up and get distracted so TEST before you choose what tasks are suitable for this exercise.
2. Rest 15 minutes
Say you manage to do 15 minutes of work then 15 minutes of whatever, then you can get something to eat, you can do the dishes, you can play some music, you can take a walk, or a short run… And many other things just to get your mind off and your mind sharp.
3. Write Down What Your Next Task is.
Keep GOALS in mind at all time. The more goals you set that you CAN make and actually DO make will boost your momentum and confidence so you have the ultimate snowball effect. You want to have a few up to many reachable goals as you can during one day. Learn to measure the time it takes you to complete certain tasks.
4. Cross it off your list
The importance of doing the checkmarks: You want to reach as many “CHECK. DONE WITH THAT TASK, moments…” as possible, to boost your momentum and self esteem so you are lit and seeking the next challenge. This ensures your mastering of new fears, which is the stopper of growth in many businesses.
5. Write Daily tasks/goals, weekly, monthly, yearly.
Keeping a daily task sheet is good. But when you do only that you need to make up new tasks every day, and for good goal setting standards you want to have bigger goals also that may take longer to accomplish but reap more harvest for your business. These Tasks that a business would want to have should be at least: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. You can add quarterly and you may also want to think a bit about your direction before setting the wring goals because you now may have gotten more to chew on than first anticipated after point 3 with the DAILY task. Stick to what you are comfortable with in the beginning but make goals. Do not worry too much if you get delayed a little if a task is taking linger than anticipated. Just KEEP FOCUS. The most important thing is to finish.
6. Spend 30 minutes on exercise in the morning.
This ensures blood flows in your brain with easy. Sitting too much will make it slower. Starting the day with at least 30 minutes of light or heavy exercise is a surefire way to increase your blast off on the day.
7. Spend 30 minutes on meditation during the day.
I suggest you make a judgement call and try to feel when your body needs it. Usually that would be when you feel stressed. If you are not in tune with our timing of the tasks or not settled with spending more time than wanted then take that deep breathing exercise and breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth. Possibly find a video on Youtube for relation mediation to aid you.
8. Drink Liquids, water coffee smoothie.
Having some energy in your beverage and enough of it is a wise choice so you also feel your metabolism functioning properly. Water, one glass first thing in the morning. And also throughout the day. Coffee, if you like it, is a great energizer. The same can be said about Yerba Mate which is a similar effect like coffee but without the jitters. Smoothies can be super-healthy and can also contain anything from juice and bananas, to algae and so called Superfoods and Nootropics which is a nutritional category based around mind enhancing supplements. You can live on smoothies alone and feel light in body AND mind. This aids the overall energy level a lot. Not essential but wanted to add it in here as it really has benefits for the head if you use the right supplements.
9. Eat healthy.
Aside from a diet based on foods that will enhance your cognition and speed you must think blood-flow. Don’t binge so you get stuffed and work slow. Low energy food, gives lower scores, plain and simple.
10. Read Books.
The MOST important part in a lot of Entrepreneurs life is constant learning and copying what works. Read books on the topics you want to get better in. Get the best books. And benefit from somebody else’s hard work leapfrogging years in growth. Be sure to pay for the books 🙂 ( Why books, because the PC-monitor needs a break.)
11. Listen To Mindset and Growth material.
Same principle, learning from the masters. Cannot be understated and you wnat to include leraning from more than one medium. So reading is one thing, listening is another. It find it practible for times when travelling or meditating/relaxing.
12. Make a Mindmap.
Use Software Like Freemind or Xmind (or similar) and create Mindmap like the rough example included below here. Get the birds eye view of your sites, funnels, business overall and structure your business the way you want it to. Just using the mind and remembering this is not easy, looking at the Mindmap gives you a clear vision on all the prats at once. Without you needed to thin k and trey to remember everything moving part. Super “handy” stuff which gives clarity in the growth process fast.
13. Organize Your Tabs In ORDER.
From the first being the most important tab to check every morning, like your stats, email etc. – Your Browser Tabs should be of utmost importance to have IN ORDER like the serious businessman or woman you are. It might be a bad idea to put put Facebook there just because you use it, unless you use it only for work. Email, Todoist. Server Access. Whatever YOU use or SHOULD be using daily, MUST be put in order ranging in importance of tasks related to Tab up there. If you just felt an urge to re-organize then you know you’re onto something.
14. Use Todoist.
In the tabs, you can put Todoist.com, it helps you organize your tasks easily. I have looked at several of these planners and this is at the moment the one I went for as it is more or less exactly what I need for keeping track of my schedule with smaller and medium tasks.
15. Avoid all distractions.
What I am talking about is TV, video games, and things that take you away from a good roll… Steer clear for as much as you possibly can when you have a work week for maximum results. – TV and Newspapers information stays in your head all day. Your mind subconsciously think about it. Say you started the day reading the news and the news sucked, you might be feeling a little depressed as opposed to not reading the news. It is one thing to stay up to date with some news, but do you need to see them every day or would you rather grow more as a person spending that precious time in the morning preparing yourself for the day?
You work HARD, and deserve and NEED to chill. Relax when you feel you are working on fumes. Take a day off or two. Then get back into it when refreshed. Often 4-5 days do a lot of good if a period has been long. This depends entirely on your situation but To say it like it is, entrepreneurs without focus get burned out. When tired we can make mistakes so it is important to stay on top of that game as that is what you want, top performance, right ? =) So remember to take a breather and get back stronger.
17. Write Down On Paper The Tasks.
You want done and your thoughts on projects. – This is just as Mindmaps and Todoist a great way to memorize and learn at the same time. When we note something down on paper we commit to the task as it is greater than punching buttons on a keyboard… It gives that tasks higher meaning and a purpose and you much more likely to accomplish a written task than any other way, without writing it down.
18. Use Whiteboards in addition to all.
They can be big and give a great view on your wall for Mindmaps, notes presentations and drawing… You name it. (Highly recommended!)
Other ways to increase productivity include sometimes also music. – Music will give you a good mood, if you’re into that then. Also it stimulates your brain so it get’s creative. Depending on the task ahead and need for inspiration or not.
This is an option that goes into the chill part, the energy part and the creative part.
Other things worth mentioning may be glasses for eye constraint and exercise ball for your “mousearm”, this is for the long term heavy user.
I would advice to get a hold of something like that at some point as I need it myself 🙂
- When using mind maps you see a clearer path to your goal.
- See here for a rough: (I did write that you need to blog a lot, but the numbers are not necessarily correct IN the image. For a blog to get traffic it gets MORE if you post more but you can blog less than 5-6-7 days a week and still get traction with organic website traffic momentum.
Click the image above for zooming in and out.
What I mean is that we need variation in our work so we keep inspired.
Follow these simple rules and be sure to get some work done every day.
After all this is your business and it won’t run completely on it’s own without your dedication.
Other things you should take in consideration is the use of something called Vision Boards.
The idea is that you get several images of your goals like what you want to achieve by getting successful. Like for instance a picture of a house, car, location and money and whatever you want. Put these images inside a frame so you can look at them every day. Get an image for your computer desktop background image also. This way you keep it in mind at all times by being programmed to visualize them in more detail. Also the more detailed your images are the better.
The clearer your goals are, the better.
This works on a subconscious level and keeps us moving even faster towards our goals.
Use this a daily guide towards your prosperity.
