Be More Productive in a Minute [Video]

In: Uncategorized

Everyone wants to be more productive, but he or she often feel like there isn’t enough time to do all the tasks in a day. Well, what if improving your productivity levels only took a minute?

Here are a few tips on how to make yourself more useful by taking a single minute out of each day.

Don’t try to remember to do things in your head. Keeping your mind clogged with reminders may just cause you to forget them or focus on them too much. Instead, write them down. Depending on what you need to do that day, it may even take less than a minute.

Don’t immediately check your email when you wake up in the morning or first get to the office. Though it’s good to stay on top of emails, they can sometimes be distracting and take your mind off of what you need to get done that day.

Lastly, take a few breaks. Several studies have shown that a quick bathroom break or walk around the office can actually make you more productive than continually trying to work.

Thanks for watching and use these tips to help improve your productivity!
