On more days than I’d like to admit I’m too tired. Lie on the bed all night and binge-watch TV tired. Can’t do anything else for the day tired. And that doesn’t work so well for me to get anything done. And then a few months ago, I realized that I was trying to do my day backwards. I was trying to do too much during my low point of the day, and it wasn’t working for me. Here’s what I remembered to boost my productivity each day, and I think it will help you too:
Your Productive Time Matters.
I’m pretty productive at work, so much so that I’m mentally exhausted by the time I make it home. I’ve realized I’ll sacrifice my personal energy to maintain my professional energy. So I work when I’m best – when I first wake up in the morning. My goal each day is to get one productive thing done at home before I go into work. And on most days, I can accomplish this task, which makes me feel more productive as I go into work. Try to work at the time that works best for you – early in the morning, during your lunch hour or late at night – if it works for you, it works. And remember to write it down, so you remember what needs to be done!
