Glasgow Interactive Share Tips For A More Productive 2014
GLASGOW, UK, January 2014 – Most of us work long hours: 40, 50 or even 100 hours each week if you are an entrepreneur. But chances are, given distractions like online entertainment, office snacking habits and ill-designed time management, we're only churning out high-quality work a portion of each day.
Here are four practical steps to incorporate into any morning routine to optimize your time at the office and maintain productivity all day long:
10 minutes of exercise. Why? It's short enough that it won't impact the rest of your morning routine and long enough to shake off any residual sluggishness from the night before — including that extra glass of wine.
Start your day out green. You'll be shocked at the morning lift you can get from a green smoothie. And healthy juicing requires less time in the morning than toasting bread and frying eggs and bacon.
Pick 3 wins for the day. Decide on the three things that you'd like to accomplish in the next 12 hours in order for you to feel like the day was a success. Sure, not every day will be an epic win, but strategizing in this way will help to move the ball forward.
Power up after lunch. Take the 15 minutes right after lunch to refocus on the day — a kind of professional meditation. Get away from your computer, turn it off, go sit in a conference room and determine what you have on tap for the rest of the day.
Think about how the list you set in the morning is shaping up. Are you ahead of schedule? Behind schedule? You'll find that these 15 minutes help you identify how you got derailed, what's causing you distractions and help you to rediscover a rhythm to be productive all day long.
Give this simple formula a try for a week and I think you'll be pleased with the results. Here's to a more productive 2014!
