Many of us are constantly searching for ways to be more productive. We’re looking for the latest hack, shortcut or system to help us achieve more.
As useful as this process can be there is another way. We can reverse engineer our approach to productivity by asking ourselves some simple questions.
2) What do I want to achieve in life?
3) What do I want to achieve this month/week?
5) Does everything on my To Do list need to be done?
6) Do I even need a To Do list?
7) Who are the people that are important to me in my life?
8) What people would I rather spend less time with in my life?
9) What tasks would I rather never have to do again? Is there a way to eliminate them?
11) What high impact tasks should I prioritise?
12) Am I just busy or am I working effectively?
13) Am I procrastinating and putting off the important stuff?
14) Am I prioritising unimportant stuff?
16) Am I checking social media compulsively throughout the day?
19) Does doing this get me closer to my goals?
21) Does this really need doing?
These questions open the lid on areas we can all improve on to make getting important stuff done a reality.
Pick one or a combination of them to help you get more done today.
These questions can be the start of clearing distractions and really focusing on what matters. That right there is the way to get more done and be more productive.
The final question is……….
What are you waiting for?
