How productive and efficient are you in your actions? If you do not have time to do anything, you are overwhelmed, there is no free time, you sleep little and are always busy, then you have low efficiency. Low productivity leads to the fact that you cannot realize your capabilities and dreams. So you will never be happy.
"You need to work not 12 hours, but your head" Steve Jobs
Some people do more in a few years than others in a lifetime. It's all about efficiency, productivity and discipline.
Coefficient of performance (COP) is an efficiency characteristic that demonstrates the ratio of useful resources spent to total costs. Resources can be time, effort and money. How to increase your efficiency? It is important to eliminate the causes of low productivity.
Low productivity and lack of discipline often show up in childhood. Remember school. Some children need an hour to do their homework, while others do it all evening. What is the reason for this difference?
It’s not so much a matter of intelligence as it’s productivity. Children are often distracted by extraneous things, play, look out the window, dream and be lazy. Then children grow up, and productivity remains low.
How to be more productive? Maximum efficiency
Work not hard, but be productive
In 1914, Henry Ford reduced the number of working hours to 8 hours a day, and he also doubled the wages of the workers. Ford Motor Company profits doubled. Thus, the benefits of productive and high-quality work, and not a large number of hours, have been proven. The more you work over 8 hours, the less efficient you become. Working overtime will not be beneficial in the long run. Work not a lot, but as collected as possible, efficiently and productively.
Focus on what's important
According to Pareto's law, 20% of the effort brings 80% of the result, and 80% of the effort brings 20% of the result. Don't increase the amount of work you do, but focus on what gives you the most bang for your buck. A lot of the things you do are not giving the desired return. Throw them aside. Don't waste your time and energy. Do, first of all, the most important and necessary matters.
Forge discipline and don't be distracted by nonsense
Avoid social media, aimless surfing, computer toys, idle talk, endless TV shows, and lazy thoughtfulness. All of this takes your time and distracts you from important things. As a result, productivity tends to zero, as does life satisfaction.
Improve your workflow
Often we do not notice how much routine work we do. There are many programs and automation tools that help you in your work. Look for methods to automate actions and speed up your workflow. This will save time, do the work much faster and better.
Don't try to be the perfect perfectionist
Some people spend a lot of time on irrelevant things trying to do them perfectly. They don't notice the big picture and focus on the little things. Spending too much time and effort on one, they will not be able to reach the goal. It is more important to reach the goal than to stop along the way, in an unsuccessful attempt to make everything perfect.
Rest and sleep
Lack of sleep and rest makes you less effective. You feel sleepy, lethargic, confused. Decreases the speed of thinking and intellectual abilities. Lack of good sleep and rest leads to decreased productivity.
Focus not on the amount of work you do, but on your efficiency. Do you want a happy life? Maximize your productivity.
