I decided to do something different today. I've learned so many key tools in life and because of that, I'm ready to take on new challenges, express myself and tbh, just do me more effectively. I believe if you have some information that can help the next person, you should put them on. I'm gonna share with you guys 7 ways I'm becoming a more productive person, hope it helps.
1. Have A Neat Home/Room.
Your room is the first place you see when you wake up. Keeping your personal space organized automatically puts you in a good head space. You naturally have less to worry about because things are actually in place. There's order.
2. Plan. Plan. Plan.
I can't stress planning enough. Visualize your goals, write them down, then plan how you will accomplish them. For example, one of my bigger plans was to work on my branding. I broke it down into different parts and now I'm able to accomplish more. I have my monthly tasks, my weekly tasks, and my daily tasks that lead up to my goals.
Have routines for the things you do regularly. It makes it second nature and saves time on lolly gagging. For me, I know before I accomplish any of my daily tasks, I have to pray, then go to the gym, shower, then go through my to-do list. That gives me kind of a jump-start on my day. My brain is already ready, so to speak.
4. Keep In Contact!
This is something I'm constantly struggling with. I'm at a position where I don't like to "famz" but I know I need to keep these people in my network. Well, the hard truth is you actually have to "famz". Famzing is basically networking anyways. When you meet people, follow up with them. Don't let messages or emails linger. Be kind, that makes people want to be around you and work with you. Remember, networking is key.
5. Have Your Signature Style.
Find your style. This way, you know what you're shopping for, you know what you like, and you will save time getting ready for your day. When people see you like that constantly, they also begin to recognize it as your style. Look at it as a part of your packaging. I wonder if you guys can guess what my look is.
6. Nails And Accessories.
I can't be the only one that looks at a person's fingers or feet first when I first meet them. My goodness! These things are so important for your image. Your hair, how you smell, everything. I also feel like it's important to have a key accessory. For me, it's a watch, you usually can't catch me slipping without a watch. So that's that.
7. Believe It.
Ever heard of the saying "fake it till you make it"? Of course you have! You don't have to have it all together, just keep pretending like you do. It'll become habit and eventually your truth. Just be sure you'd be happy living your truth.
I really hope these tips help, and if you have any other suggestions, please let me know in the comments.
