8 Tips to Increase Productivity

We all lead a hectic and busy lifestyle. But do you realise that some people around you are able to handle everything that comes along their life with a breeze and yet seem to do so in a laid-back manner? This is while most of us are struggling to make ends meet.

Have you wondered what is their secret? Why are they able to be stress-free, ready to go and have everything at their finger tips? Here are tips to do so:

Tip 1: Kick the tasks off our brain

Kick the tasks out of our brain and plan to do it. We often have millions of "to-do" items, task, or ideas on our head and spend time procrastinating to act on them. Instead of using brain power to remember them, we should kick the items off on paper and use our brain cells in a more productive way. Writing these items down not only helps you to clear the mind, and is also a step closer to working on the task.

Tip 2: Organise a time schedule

Jumping straight into the work without prioritising is an ineffective way to do work. The proven and effective way is to prioritise and organise your time well. Divide your working hours into slots- for example, 20 minutes to clear emails, two hours to produce the presentation slides required for a project. Prioritise your work by focusing on the important and urgent things to do in the morning. This can be followed by items which are less important and easier to complete. This will make your work seemingly easier at the same time.

5 Tips for Creating Weekly Goals that Stick

When it comes to career searching, we often talk about "big" goals -- things we would like to achieve in the long-term. It's also important to set smaller, short-term goals to help slowly, but surely, reach those bigger ones.

One of the easiest ways to accomplish small things is to set weekly goals every Monday. Typically on Monday morning you have a good sense of your schedule for the rest of the week. Use this knowledge to your advantage to create an actionable list of goals that fit with your week. Here are five of our favorite tips for creating weekly goals that stick.

  1. Rightsize your goals for your schedule: Particular busy this week? Pick one or two career transition-related goals and work to get them done. Is your workload lighter than usual? Use this time to your advantage -- sets goal that take longer periods of time or require more "brain power."
  2. Write your goals down: If you don't use an actual planner, develop a system that allows you to write your goals on paper and be reminded of them often. You are far more likely to accomplish something this way!
