If you want to get more done, try this one simple mindset shift to boost productivity, get more done and be more focussed on the task at hand.
In this day and age, it’s hard to stay focused on the task at hand. There are so many distractions that constantly pull our focus away from what we should be doing. But with a small mindset shift you can turn your productivity around!
The saying “mind over matter” is real. When we are determined and our willpower is strong, things seem to come easily. So start with this small mindset shift:
Time is your most valuable commodity.
When you’re on-task and achieving your goal, imagine money being deposited into your bank account. When you allow yourself to be distracted, money is being withdrawn.
When you start with this simple mindset, it’s significantly easier to stay focused on the task at hand.
By being aware of how precious your time is and you start making better decisions about what you do with it.
The more time you spend allowing yourself to be distracted, the less you can earn. And we know how easy it is to be distracted in the 21st century.
And remember, take one task at a time. Multi-tasking is Bull***t. Research shows that multitasking only makes people less productive and more prone to mistakes.
So, choose a task. Set time limits for that task and block out distractions which will allow you the freedom of working on one task until you’ve completed it.
