Productivity equals success

Tayabali Tomlin

Most business owners, managers and senior executives are juggling day to day responsibilities, growing the business and various projects. With so much to do, improving your productivity is key if you want to succeed. Here are a few top tips to help you to improve your productivity.

 

Stop multi-tasking

In today’s always-on environment, many of us have fallen into the trap of multi-tasking and trying to do too much. Instead, try to focus on doing individual tasks properly. Create a priority list each day and focus on getting each item on that list ticked off. That way you can focus on processing the task at hand.

 

Delegate

The very best business leaders are masters of delegation. Build a team of effective people around you and delegate as much as you can. Empower them to take on projects and avoid micro managing. Delegation is the key to productivity

 

Learn to say no

Taking on too much at once will reduce your productivity and increase your stress levels. Say no to things that are not important.

 

Just because you are invited to a meeting doesn’t mean it should be a priority. Focus on the things that really matter to you and your firm and say yes to them. Everything else is just a distraction.

 

Cut out the noise

With email, instant messaging, social media and phone calls, we are all distracted by constant noise. Schedule specific time for checking your various email and messaging inboxes and refrain from checking your messages outside of these specific times.

 

A day of no meetings

Scheduling a “no-meeting day” every week can have a positive impact on your productivity. Every manager needs uninterrupted blocks of time to deal with projects, reporting and whatever else is on the “to do” list.

 

Leave work at a reasonable hour

The most productive managers make it home at a reasonable time. Successful leaders don’t work long hours every day in an attempt to tick more items off their to-do list. Instead, they think through their priorities, schedule time for each, then it’s time to go home.
