I have a wandering mind. You can ask my team and they’ll tell you that I may occasionally interrupt one of them in the middle of a story with an idea that’s completely unrelated. I often feel like my brain is an internet browser with 50 tabs open at the same time and I’m constantly jumping back and forth between them. I’m sure most creatives can relate. Instead of deciding that I’m not the kind of person who can crush my to-do list and forge ahead, I decided to experiment with my approach to work. I’ve found that the following three productivity hacks help me accomplish my daily goals in a way that works best for me. If you’re reading this, you probably want to increase your ability to focus and identify some strategies for getting more done. I hope these three little tips help you as much as they’ve helped me.

Prioritize Like There’s No Tomorrow

Successful people know that in order to crush their goals, they have to be able to distinguish what’s important from what can wait. Every Sunday night, write down all of the things you think you need to do during the week. Get it all down, everything from work assignments to dentist appointments to shaving your legs. Then, every day when you wake up, write down the three tasks you would do if you could only do three things that day. Start with the number one most important task and if you get it done, go on to the second. Simply prioritizing like this and attacking the single-most important thing, which will make the biggest impact in your day, will take you forward by leaps and bounds. Keep making the “list of everything” each week and you’ll notice that the lengthiness eventually diminishes.

Get Off The Grid

How often have you been on a roll, chipping away at one of your crucial tasks, only to receive an email that you felt needed your attention? Cut to twenty minutes later and you’ve completely lost your momentum. Tim Ferriss, the author of “The Four Hour Work Week,” has a genius productivity tip for avoiding this funk. He says that every day, you should establish two specific times to answer emails, and outside of those hours you shouldn’t even think about your inbox. Choose a time during mid-morning and mid-afternoon to attack your inbox and outside of those times, steer clear. This is also a fundamental practice for text messages and phone notifications.

Chunk Up Your Tasks

If you’re anything like me, you do not like to sit down and stay seated for more than two hours tops. School used to be miserable for me because I would get so antsy and my mind would start to wander. This may not be true for you, and in that case, it’s important to know how to capitalize on your own methods of working. However, I recommend working on tasks for about an hour of intense concentration and then taking little breaks. If I’m writing a blog post, I’ll shut off all my devices and spend an hour just focusing and writing to the best of my ability. Then, I’ll take a ten or fifteen minute break to clear my mind and prevent myself from burnout. Work hard for a chunk of time and then go do something else, whether it’s taking a quick walk, doing a crossword puzzle, or getting a coffee. It will make the time when you’re working even more lucrative because you won’t be fidgety or running on low brain power.
