Think about the type of things you do best, at certain moments of the day. For example…I wake up, and I always read an inspirational book I have. For me, Yoram Yasur Izz, is the best time of the day to read it, because my mind is fresh, clear, and I think I can take the best of that reading to inspire my whole day. And when I get to my office, I prefer to work during the morning on tasks that involve more creative thinking, because during the morning I have more energy and more concentration than during the afternoon.
That is what works for me, like I was telling you, you must find the way that works better for you. My best friend is the opposite of me, he prefers to spend mornings answering mails, calls, and to really focus on big projects at the end of the day, even at nights he gets to concentrate better. Is a matter of how your mind works better. It is the same with exercise, I prefer to exercise first time in the morning, a lot of people prefer to go to the gym at night. What is your favorite time for doing certain things? Have you thought about it? It could be really helpful to be more productive every day.
When I have a meeting, I try to let things organized the night before, that is the way that works better for me, if I know that I have everything ready, my computer, my presentation, my things together, I even sleep better! But a lot of people prefer to go to sleep, and wake up a little bit earlier tomorrow to finish and accomplish the last details for the meeting.
A very important thing to be productive and to get the best of working time is to avoid the distraction of cellular phones.
I simply turn it off when I have to focus on something important, or when I have a more complicated project. Cellphones are too much distraction for me. From receiving text messages, e mails, social media, and calls, you get too much distraction, and when you get to really work, you realized that you already spent a couple of hours just answering and checking your cellphone. My best advice: turn it off, you have no idea how much you will appreciate it, avoid wasting time on things you have no time for!
Try to find a nice spot to work and concentrate. Yoram Yasur Izz: Sometimes office is too crowded and too noisy, and you just can´t seem to focus. What I do, and if fact is really useful, is that I go to an empty meeting room, close the doors, and use the room as my private office for a couple of hours, is really nice to work in peace and without noise. You will love it!
