Upwork Provides Tips For Accomplishing Everything on Your To-Do List
Upwork recently published a blog on their website titled “10 Powerful Tips for Sailing Through Your To-Do List”. The article encourages productivity by providing a variety of tips to help keep the reader organized and focused.
One of the first and most important tips is to get everything out of your head and onto a platform that can take all of the different tasks you have on your mind. Without recording all of the different tasks, you will suffer from the Zeigernik Effect, a psychological phenomenon where you become more stressed and feel unable to focus on the current task. The tasks you haven’t completed yet will simply keep running through your brain. Writing all of your projects down will enable your mind to relax and relieve the unnecessary stress. David Allen of the GTD Method, a world famous productivity master, suggets that using a software or mobile app can be an easy way to capture all of the things you need to accomplish in a day.
Another easy way to accomplish more from your to do list is to prepare it the night before. Everyone wastes time in the morning by trying to get their to-do list organized. This can be a problem because many people are at their most focused in the morning and they end up wasting valuable time in the morning creating a list of all they need to get done. Instead, it is much more productive to create the to-do list the night before. By doing so, as soon as you get started you will know your most important tasks.
The next tip focuses on keeping all the to-dos in one place. Having a disorganized to-do list will prevent you from focusing. If you have all of your tasks listed in different places like on sticky-notes, in a note book, on your phone, and on your email, you waste valuable time looking for all of your tasks. It also makes it incredibly easy for tasks to slip through the cracks simply because you didn’t see them.
