The habit of being lazy is a really easy one to fall into. It starts with procrastination, people pushing tasks or productivity aside for later until the very last minute when they are forced to complete things. However, procrastinating can soon turn into laziness, where people no longer know how to do things right away, how to be active, and how to deliver on time. Laziness also translates to being a bad employee, and no one wants to hire a lazy worker. Everyone is looking for the most productive person, given that they are the ones that not only get things done on time and in an efficient manner, but productive person also does things correctly whenever they are asked to.
Aside from that, productivity also translates into your everyday life. Being productive at work also means that your life pairs up with this habit as well, and it is incredibly effective when you are able to apply it to your every-day life as well as your work.
Nevertheless, if you are feeling somewhat lazy lately, here are some tips on how you can kick that habit and boost your productivity in only minutes.
1. Do things at the exact time
It is a hard habit to kick-off, putting things off for later, however, once you get used to doing things in the very same minute it can be extremely beneficial. Once you create room for a new and good habit you are able to kick off the bad one. For instance saying that you are going to write something down so that you don’t forget it later, what you need to do is do things the exact minute you decide them. Write them down and don’t let any minute pass. Be efficient about your decisions and turn yourself into a more productive person.
2. Set Yourself A Timer With A Specific Time
For instance, give yourself 15 minutes to finish something, or to work on a project. See how productive you can be by putting yourself a time-goal. Don’t distract yourself in that period of time and use it wisely to work or complete something. See how right away you will become more productive simply by setting your focus on what matters.
3. Start Off With The Most Complicated Tasks
Whatever is that you are dreading and putting off make sure you start off with that. As awful and unappealing as it sounds, it is the best way for you to get something done right away, especially something that you continue putting off. For instance, if you’ve been dreading going to the bank, don’t leave it towards the end of the day, right where you are more tired from your day, start off with the most complicated task and see how everything flows easily after that.
