Do you ever struggle to get things done? are you always forgetting or you simply don’t have the time to complete these tasks. Below is a list of tips and ideas that can help you accomplish your goals.
Create a to do list
Creating a to do list can be a great help. One of the reasons why people don’t get the things done that they meant too was simply because they forget about it. If you have a list with you it will make it impossible to forget, just as long as you look at it.
Turn off the TV
Sometimes when I work at home I will leave the TV on while working on tasks and it always takes longer to finished than it would do if I just turned off the TV. This also goes for other distractions such as being in a room with conversations going on, just go and find a quiet place to work.
Set a deadline for anything that you are currently doing. When you set a deadline and you see your set time scale coming to an end it motivates you to work harder to complete your task within the deadline. When we don’t set time limits things can take much longer than needed to complete.
Wake up earlier
Waking up earlier will simply give you more time to get things done. Just make sure you get your much needed sleep, however many people will stay in bed longer than needed. Get yourself out of bed and get to work.
Always prioritise your tasks, don’t waste time with less important jobs, you can always come back to them.
Whenever you do complete a task, reward yourself in some way. It gives you something to look forward too and it motivates you to complete the task. This could be something as simple as treating yourself with food, playing a game on your phone. I personally treat myself with a game on the PlayStation.
Get someone to help you
Sometimes there really is just not enough hours in the day, get help, pay them if necessary.
Break up a difficult task
If your task is complex or difficult, break it up into smaller tasks. Sometimes a big task can seem overwhelming so break it into sections and complete the task section by section. Perhaps start with an easier section to get the ball rolling.
