During the Covid-19 days when our liberty was a little bit restricted (for our safety of crouse), we adapted to switch from our traditional workplaces and start working from home every single day.

It was a little bit confusing in the first place, but since then, I’ve never worked in an office until the day I post this nice article which will help you to be more productive.

So, let’s dive in! Here are my 5 easy steps to increase your productivity when you work from home.

 

be super organized

1. Be super organized and stay professional

I know this step has 2 elements, but they are complementary to each other. What do I mean by this?

If you are living in a tiny house or apartment, it is very probable that your office is in your sleep room. Don’t worry, this is not an issue. At least you should be grateful for having a home :). In this case, you need to set some boundaries:

  • always make your bed, clean, and gather everything that is in your way
  • vent your room
  • throw the trash away
  • be minimalistic

Now you can be more focused on the right things and your productivity level will increase significantly.

 

plan your day

2. Plan your day. Act. Reflect.

The most important part of starting a good day and being highly productive until it ends is good planning in the morning.

This is pretty easy but many people neglect it. Here’s what I do:

  • I wake up and do my bed
  • I go to the bathroom to do the morning stuff… you know, like any other human on earth
  • I drink some water, vent my room
  • I open my laptop, a simple notepad, and start writing my tasks for that day (sometimes I write them on paper)
  • I go to the kitchen, start cooking, eating, and start working

When you are planning your day you should keep it simple. Prioritize what is the most important thing and finish that first. If there are things with the same level of priority, you have to choose between the harder one or the easiest one. Depending on how much time takes of they, sometimes I choose the hardest one, sometimes the easiest one.

You can be more specific when it comes to meetings. I like to schedule all my meetings and synchronize them with my Google Calendar. I am syncing 5 to 10 Google profiles in the same calendar, so I know exactly what I have to do and when.

I like to put notifications to remind me about upcoming events.

Very important here! As Nike says: Just do it! To be productive means actually do to things. So just do them. Stop thinking too much. Stop complaining. Make that plan. Do the work. Finish it. Then you can go and do whatever feels right for you.

Last but not least, reflect.

At the end of every day, take 5 – 10 minutes to reflect on how was your day going. That’s a good endpoint to note and improve so you can be better the next day.

What platform are you using to store your huge project files?

I find notion a good one. With only $4/month (for personal use) or $8/month/user (for teams) you have unlimited storage and no upload limits.

It's easy to manage and share public or privately.

Visualisation without acting is pointless.

You cannot just visualize yourself as a rich badass mf and act like a pu**y.

Try as fast as possible to get clarity about what you want in life.

Because some paths are longer than expected. For example if you wanna be a doctor, it's better to start learning right after high school.

It's not impossible at a older age but it is harder.

Do you agree?
