How To Get It Done! 5 Ways to Be More Productive.

How to be more productive?

Let's start by asking there something you should be doing this very moment? Yes? Put your phone down go do it! Everything can wait. Work hard then enjoy whatever else.

Stop getting distracted!
Easier said than done, but why do we get distracted? Probably to ease our minds off of everything we need to do! When in reality it's only going to stress us out by pro-longing our list of #ShitThatNeedsToBeDone excuse my French which in hindsight builds up. Stop browsing social media, texting/talking to whomever, walking around aimlessly! Get what needs to be done, done and then do whatever your heart desires.

Take it step by step.
Okay, so you know what you need to do and you've put your phone down and all other distractions away. Where do you start?
Take it slowly, look at the big picture then ask yourself what steps do I need to take to get there? Write them out and check them off. Before you know it you'll find yourself closer to the finish line.

Organize your mind!
Don't feel too overwhelmed. I get it life isn't easy. Distractions are sadly not always controllable. Have a baby like I do? Figure out some kind of schedule. My kid is very needy so believe me when I say if I can get a few minutes so can you! Sometimes I'll work as I'm feeding her because let's face it there's no need to add extra stressors, you have to work smart not hard! Have a house to clean and need to study? Try listening to audio of course work at the same time. Need to cook? There's so many easy meals that only take a few minutes to make. Whatever it is there's ways to manage it and do it smart not hard. Have a can do attitude because you really can do it! Remember you have the same 24 hours in your day as those successful people you admire.

Make a schedule!
Rethink your wake up time and plan ahead. Use your phone to jot down your day into hours. If you prefer to check things off by hand buy a desk calendar or notebook and write in that. Use your time wisely. Having a hard time checking things off? Reward yourself when you get to certain checkpoints and do take breaks! Start off strong, get the most daunting tasks done first and you'll realize you can accomplish all the rest.

Don't stress out so much! Refresh your mind. You've come so far in life and you can handle anything and everything. I think you're really brave and strong! I know you feel like you have a lot on your plate sometimes, we all do. Take it slowly and step by step and you'll get to where you want to be. Yes, it's not always easy, but you said that in the past and got through a lot of hard times then too, but surely it all passes. Remember the grass is only green where you water it.

I hope this article helps you realize that yes, you can do it! Phone down 👋🏻

XOX, Rue
