So we know that there are a plethora of these kind of articles floating around the World Wide Web but we decided that, why see many when you can just see this one? One thing you’ll realise with these ways is that they’re things that we can easily incorporate (or at least try to) in our everyday life. Not to say that doing them will make you a Supa-person in a day, but it will definitely get you on the right track!

Taking care of your Health

This is number one for obvious reasons. Not only does taking care of your Health actually work you towards not prematurely dying, it also gets your noodles working all the better!

So put in time for some exercising, even if it a 20 minute walk to the convenience store, it will do your brain definite good and make you more productive at work.
Or if there simply isn’t any time for it, work in 90 minute blocks before giving yourself a quick 15 minutes to turn off. Studies have shown that humans can only maximise their focus for 90 minutes. Anything after that is a slow but steady decline to being that unproductive worker you don’t want to be.

Quit Multi-tasking

So apparently killing two birds with 1 stone doesn’t do too well with making you into a productive person. Sure, you might think you are but, experts have debunked that you actually aren’t. Sorry.

This also applies to us constantly checking our phones for Twitter, Instagram, Quora, Tumblr, Snapchat or whatever other social media tools you’re on. Did you know, the people at LearnStuff.com discovered that in the U.S., 12.2 billion hours are spent browsing social media alone? Wow.

So if you feel like you’re one of the people contributing to this, it might be time to consider uninstalling them from your phone or if that’s too drastic, just lock it in your drawer during those 90 minutes of full focusing.

Saying No to Meetings

This might sound weird now but here’s more data for you: Atlassian found that the average worker spends 31 hours each month in unproductive meetings! That’s 31 more hours that could have gone into helping you reach that KPI, or 31 hours gone from making your pitch to the clients better.

So the next time there’s a meeting, maybe it would be good to ask yourself if the objective of the meeting could be met through other means like on email, or a conference call or even a quick Skype session.

Delegate Your Task

If your colleague is good with GoogleAds and you’re not,leverage that. This saves you the time from fumbling about while you get to move forward to whatever else that needs to be done for you to achieve your goal. Just be sure to return the favour, when it’s their turn their to ask.

Or delegate your tasks to us here at Supahands and never have to return the favour ever 😉 Want our SupaAgents to help you with being a more productive person at work and play? Create your task now

Reward Yourself

Nothing like some good Pavlov Conditioning! It’s important to keep yourself motivated when doing tasks and a simple yet effective way of doing that is by rewarding yourself. Maybe you could buy the latest gadget for getting that promotion or maybe you could just treat yourself to an episode of a series you’re following for finishing your presentation that day. It’s just important to pat yourself on the back sometimes for a job well done.
