How to Increase Your Productivity and Focus



I can't be the only one who gets overwhelmed with all of the things that need to be done in a day. Let me share with you some of my hacks on getting laser-focused in your business and being more productive!





One of my favorites is doing a brain dump. Funny name, I know, but it seriously is one of the best things. If you have never heard of it, it is where you take a notebook or the notes section in your phone, set a timer, and just jot down every project or task that is currently on your mind. No solutions unless you have some quick ideas. Just put down everything that you can think of to get it out of your head.


Once you have all of those down, it is time to organize them. I typically try to organize in terms of projects.

What all goes together?

What would make sense to actually execute together?

What should I do separate from the other?

What are the most time consuming?


Asking those kinds of questions will help you organize your thoughts and the tasks.


From there, I'm going to say something that may be super hard for you to do, but...

Pick one thing.

Yep.

Pick one thing to focus on for now. Do that really well. Then move onto the next one.

You may be saying that all of them need to be done. I know that. Still, pick one and focus.


Lastly, find a way to organize those projects or just the one, main project first. Put it in your planner. I love using Asana to structure my projects and I even have a section there of projects that I want to do in the future but know that I would not execute them well today.


Yet, the point of this section is to be able to see what you need to do clearly. Lay it out for yourself so that it is simple. One of the biggest reasons people don't execute is because of feeling directionless or confused. Remove the confusion for yourself!


Happy organizing!
