10 Steps To Be More Productive
Brought to you by: MaidPro Central CT
Do The Hardest Task First.
Many times we put off the task that will take the
most time and effort. Set up your day to get it
out of the way first thing. Leave the rest of your
day free to complete quick tasks.
Stop Multitasking.
Prioritize, don’t multitask. Multitasking often
leads to a lot of work that only touches the
surface of projects. Set aside time to complete
or make a difference in projects.
Set Aside Email Time.
Don’t constantly respond and check your email
all day. Have you ever noticed how what was
supposed to be 15mins of checking email turns
into an hour? Instead, set aside time to respond
to emails.
Create at To-NOT Do List.
Write down the things you revert to that keep
you from being productive. This will help you
catch your self in those moments and stay on
track.
Manage Your Energy Levels.
More hours at your desk doesn’t mean you get
more done. Set yourself up to get in the zone.
Make sure you get enough sleep and eat so you
can be productive.

  • 7. Time Yourself. Competition can be a great motivator. Time yourself during certain tasks to help ensure you get things done on time and don’t get distracted.
  • 8. Establish A Routine. Routines make us more efficient & help us to complete tasks quickly. Our brains are wired for routine. Use this process to help you streamline the work day.
  • 9. Write Things Down. Don’t expect to remember everything. Beat the brain drain by keeping track of the Must-Do and Do-Later tasks on your phone or in a note book.
  • 10. Say No. Focus on what you are looking to achieve. Don’t agree to meetings or projects you don’t have time for. Stay focused.
  • 11. Take Short Breaks. Look up from your desk every 30 minutes. Take a moment to re-focus and prioritize.
  • 12. Let MaidPro Central CT check cleaning off the list.
