How To Increase your Productivity [Part 3: Energy Drainers in Your Life]

Have you ever patted yourself on the back for being great at multitasking?

If yes, then this is for you…..

Sometimes, YOU are your own worst enemy.

It may come as a surprise to realize that some of your habits are actually sabotaging your productivity, and leaving you more drained and less productive.
You see, self-draining habits distract us rather help us focus on energy boosting activities.

Let’s Take a Look at 7 Top Energy Drainers we Unknowingly Impose on Ourselves:

1. Multi-tasking

🔋Contrary to a popular belief, multi-tasking is not an effective way to get things done.
Each time you switch from one activity to another, you take time to “reset” your mind.
It’s actually quite counterproductive.

2. Lack of clear goals

🔋Without clarity, it is difficult to know whether the right work is getting done. Without a clear focus on goals and objectives, priorities can easily conflict.

3. Over commitment

🔋We keep saying yes to all requests and end up being overcommitted. This quickly leads to burnout and exhaustion.

4. Distractions

Are you able to work for, say, 60 minutes without getting distracted or are you constantly bombarded by interruptions?

5. Lack of Organization

🔋 Disorganization is a major energy drainer, because you end up spending most of your time and effort energy looking for things.

6. Lack of reflection time

Without reflection time, it is difficult to know whether one is working on the right activities. A lack of time to reflect, refresh and rest can lead to stress, overwhelm and work overload.

7. Perfectionism

The drive for perfection stalls your goals. Perfection is an unobtainable goal that increases your workload.

Think about it for a moment … Which one of these 7 are you guilty of?
How are you working around them to improve your productivity?

Have a wonderful day. 🙂
