How You Can Increase Your Ability to Hustle and Increase Productivity
"Things may come to those who wait...but only the things left by those who hustle." - Abraham Lincoln
People who have achieved great success were not just born with natural talent or abilities. They hustled. You also don't need to be smarter, you don't have to be more talented either. It's just a matter of looking into your productivity habits and see what you can do about them so you can achieve your goals. Here are some of the things you can try doing to fulfill your own dreams.
Identify the things and activities that are just wasting your time
You might be one of the many people who have been wasting a lot of time on social media. If you can cut the time you spend visiting those sites, you will notice your productivity sky rocketing.
Get enough sleep
If you are wondering how you can hustle harder with more sleep, here's how. When you are deprived of sleep, you cannot be efficient with your tasks no matter how long you spend doing them. Sleep more and you'll notice how you become more productive.
Finish what you have started
According to a study, if you pause from a task, it will take a couple of minutes before you can regain your concentration on that specific task and that's a huge time waster. Whether it is big or small, you have to be able to finish what you started.
Be flexible and work anywhere
If you try to finish small tasks while being in a certain place or even when you're doing something, you can accomplish more things. For example, you can check your emails while doing workouts, or make a business call while you're on your way to way. You can get things crossed out little by little off your to-do list by practicing this.
