Productivity at work is a measurement of effectiveness in mental and physical efforts. In this busy technological world everyone wants to achieve higher results by utilising time on productive tasks. In today’s time work is no longer considered work if it’s not generating revenue directly. Entrepreneurs and companies are using artificial intelligence over humans to create better solutions in less cost in short time. It’s a known fact that machines are more productive than humans. That’s why people want to automate every internet related or repeated tasks by the use of internet applications. Apps and artificial intelligence works systematically based on logical algorithms. Most of the Internet applications are created to perform specifically such that they earn high revenue on less cost.
We are also like machines and we are coded by God. It’s not easy for most of the people to define what they want? What they want to do in life? These are complicated questions we get when we’re feeling negative. We are negative because of information overload. We are analyzing every step in our life today. This was not the case with us when we were children, but today this is the big problem that most of our day time is spent on watching motivational video and reading more about how to increase productivity and how to stay positive at work place. I don’t mean to say that this problem is isolated to you alone. Everyone wants to become successful in everything that they are supposed to do and it’s not bad.
So to stay productive at work you can follow things that will increase your efficiency. I hope by following these tips you will get more done in less time.
Great productivity practices you can do at work to achieve higher results
Set goals based on Priorities to become more productive
Make a list of things that are regarded as more important than others. Setting goals based on priorities helps us to do right work in right time. For example if your goal is to earn money then set work goals that are going to help you to earn money. In this case if sharing things on social media helps you to earn money then do it. But if you’re watching motivational videos and learning more and more without taking actions then it just impacts your brain with more doubts and procrastination.

Make a to do list daily to stay productive at workplace
After setting goals based on priorities now it’s time to set small goals to achieve daily. Make a to do list for the day as early as possible before sitting in front of computer. You can also set to do list to become more productive after seeing clients mails, social media notifications. My first work of the day is to check mails or clients messages and Google analytics reporting. Then I create my to do list based on what clients want me to do today, what’s important to teach offline students today and what is most important thing that I can write that can help even 1% towards achieving the goals of my readers. I do this on monthly and weekly basis, based on the financial goals that I want to achieve this month.
To do list is a great thing that help us to stay productive. By making to do list you can accomplish more before you leave the office.

Automate your brain to increase productivity
If you’re not interested or think that daily, weekly and goal setting is not the best method for you then you can also automate your brain. Automatic thinking is directed by focus. Focus is one the most powerful skills or habit and sometimes it is God gifted. In this case you just imagine the future you want for yourself. Imagine what you want to buy, imagine how you want to feel at the end of this month. By doing imagination practice this way you can work on things based on intuition or those that are really important to do. After this you need willpower to achieve what you dreamed. By doing practice on imagination and visualising to achieve what we want, we can automate our brain. When our brain is focused on things then despite all the distractions it will increase productivity. For example strong will power automatically helps you to get up early in the morning. There are many people who get up in early automatically without setting alarm clock. This is the point I want to emphasise here.

Implement great ideas and knowledge quickly to achieve success in work
When you get an idea you feel very excited and passionate to implement it. Then don’t search on Google How to do it? Instead search for the benefits of implementing this idea into your project and work. I mean that when you are positive about something then do it anyway you want to do. Don’t learn on Internet more about it immediately, there are people who failed in this idea and they start sharing their experience with you and that’s why people are not becoming successful in today’s time. Because people don’t think if someone has failed in that idea it’s not because the idea is wrong. The implementation and execution of idea matter a lot. Think about winning, think about the great results you can achieve by implementing the idea in your work to become successful in anything you do. Just be positive. Think on success. Think of your great future. Think that you are more intelligent and better than the people who are advising you to not implement or don’t do this. If I am failed in something it’s not practically and logically possible that you will fail too. You’re more intelligent than others. Just believe on yourself and achieve your results.
That’s what I think and it helped me so far in my career. I just think what is possible today. I just work on things that are in my hands. I use my resources, skills and situation to accomplish more important for me to today.
Avoid distractions to be more productive
When you sit down to work with full determination, you will find that there are dozens of things that will not let you work to your maximum potential and your productivity suffers. These distractions can be external such as loud noises that disturb you or someone interrupting you repeatedly and breaking your chain of thought (online or offline) . Or the distractions can be internal which means that your mind is thinking about too many things at the same time and not able to focus on the work in front of you. I agree that sometimes you cannot do much about the external distractions except isolate yourself physically, but there is always a way to avoid internal distractions and conflicts within the mind. Identify the sources of these conflicts, remove them and then think about work. One way of doing this is by meditating for a short while as it helps you to calm your mind and regain concentration. Another thing that makes a large impact on work productivity is the environment you are working in. A cluttered desk will continuously distract you and the visuals around you will divert your mind towards them.
So clean up your workplace and keep your surroundings free from things that attract attention away from work. You can use partitions, curtains or any such things to block your line of sight from things that distract you often. This will help you stay focused and become more productive at work. Being more productive at work is a matter of utilising your brain power for useful things while avoiding useless things that occupy your mind space. If you are able to control the wanderings of your mind, there are very few things in this world that can distract you.
Nothing is more important than work, and being productive at work is the ultimate deciding factor of your success or failure These are my experiences that helped me to stay more productive at work. If you’re getting any problem related to productivity and want to increase productivity, just ask me and I will help you to achieve more than your competitors.
