Are you losing interest on your goals due to inadequate time, no motivation, distractions and responsibilities that you end up shoving them off? This post is for you, you and you. 🙂Hey guys,
Ever heard the saying – “So much to do, so little time”? You have probably heard it so much it has become your go-to excuse on unproductive days – “no time”. What if I told you there’s more than enough time? What If i told you you can do so much within 24 hours and you never have to worry about having little time to work?
The question then becomes – “How Do I Make The Most Of My Day”. Let’s dive right into it and answer that question, shall we?
LETS MAKE THE MOST OF OUR DAY
24 hours in a day is all ours, only if we can make use of it effectively. Here, I’m not talking about using the whole 24hours, it would be great if you can but finding appropriate hours you can work with even with your busy schedule is ideal.
Coming up with this basic strategy was a bit tasking. Researching and reading articles on “making the most of your 24hours” and applying it to my day-to- day schedule was difficult. There were points stating; watch motivational videos, wake up early, read often and so on. No doubt they are great things to do but how do I put those into my schedule and also adding things I genuinely want to do that day without ending up with a long list. So I came up with these few points.
Planning a day before allows you outline important things you need to get done the following day. Planning is just the first step but how do you stay organized without a to-do list. Get yourself a book and not a paper, to keep track of your progress and reflect on the things you couldn’t do for that day. Your to-do list should be as straightforward as possible ( a long list is not required), jot the tasks that truly matter and get rid of tasks that don’t enhance your productivity. A list could consist of 3- 5 tasks a day. You have other days to complete the others, try not to confuse activity with productivity. ‘Slow and Steady, wins the race”. Don’t be in a hurry.
Be time conscious, the most productive time of your day is in the morning. This time gives you the opportunity to accomplish more. Apart from waking up early, it is advisable to delegate specific time per tasks for yourself because it is easy to lose track of time or spend more time on things that should have been completed earlier.
Stay away from social media. Turn off all social media platforms when being productive unless your tasks requires you to use them but try not to get distracted. It is very easy to slip into countless social media platforms without being conscious. From replying a message, to posting a picture on Instagram. Try to avoid all social media platforms because it is a big distraction and it is not time well spent.
Last but not the least. Try to read often. Pick up a book or read an article. Boost your knowledge, Learn new things.
Basically, this is how I make the most of my day. It is straight to the point but trust me distractions are all over the place. Stay focused. The end goal is what truly matters.
How do you make the most of your day? Are you easily distracted? How often do you read?
