Someone once told me, “get that shit over with.” It’s the simplest yet best advice I’ve ever gotten. Maximize your time and energy towards doing more so that you can have a more fulfilling and productive lifestyle.
If you’re looking for a way to improve your life immediately, quit waiting around and start conquering the day.
Wake up early
The best way to conquer the day is by waking up early. It’s not an easy task for everyone, especially if you’ve been sleeping in most of your life. You can start by going to sleep at a consistent and reasonable time, or adjusting your work/school schedule so that you will have no choice but to start the day at sunrise. A good night sleep and early morning can lead to weight loss, a clear mindset, energy, as well as reduces stress and anxiety.
Organize the day
Create a to-do list at the beginning of the week, then another one for each day. It will help you keep track of what needs to be done by the end of the week. Start with the most important tasks followed by less urgent ones.
We’re all guilty of multitasking. But trying to do many different things simultaneously, only slows us down and wastes time. Next thing you know, you’ve barely completed anything. Focus on one thing at a time.
Keep yourself busy
Stay busy at work, school, and whenever you have the extra time. The more active you are, the less inclined you will be to check social media or binge-watch Netflix. If you’ve finished all your tasks for the day, use the opportunity to go above and beyond.
Give yourself something to do each day
Doing something is better than doing nothing. There’s always something to fix, clean, or attend. Whether that is cleaning up the kitchen, organizing your home, getting groceries, emptying your closet, etc. There is no better time than now to face the responsibilities you kept tucked away.
Set goals + follow them
When was the last time you gave yourself a deadline to complete your goals and followed through with them? Most of us never do, or we forget about them as if they’re not that important to us. Instead of focusing on long-term goals, think about what you can accomplish today. Create a list of short-term goals that are specific, attainable, and timely. It’ll be easier on you if you start little by little and work your way up.
A great way to increase your productivity is by creating more and consuming less. Create a blog, write a blog post, create a new piece of art, and finish that clothing design you haven’t touched in 6 months. Create something you love and deliver it to the world.
