Hi Nirdosh Maharaj here!
Ever wondered why some people achieve more than others? Are they just lucky, or perhaps they are just born that way?
Yes we are all the same in human nature however there are certain facts about successful people versus others who cannot seem to get going.
Here's the thing, achieving your daily, monthly and annual goals to accomplish projects or tasks, takes a bit more than just having a dream or directive in life.
Here are some tips to increase your productivity:
1. Be in the Present
This is important as it allows us to be focussed. Engage in what you are doing all the time. A feeling of disengagement in front of your customers or teams can lower the enthusiasm and energy in the room. Stay in the room, in the present moment and tackle one task at a time. This will allow you to fully accomplish your goal.
Ok, so this is critical. Without the correct mindset, we can never achieve our goals and tasks. So what is the right psychological approach that we should use? I think that positive thinking is way too cliche nowadays.
Let's rather be more aware about this. In the mornings, visualise your day being successful. What you visualise always materializes. The mind is a powerful tool, and after visualising your successful day ahead, you will see that success along the day. Do this with enthusiasm and this should not take more than 10-15 minutes daily.
Let's remember that getting enough exercise is critical as well. Preferbally done in the mornings, why not take a 15-20 minute walk to get the blood circulating. This will allow for higher energy levels. Personally i first drink half a litre of water to hydrate myself before taking some exercise. Do this and watch your energy levels go up. P.s. stay away from energy drinks and caffiene, this is not what i recommend.
Work on your persuasion skills daily. Persuasion is used at every moment of the day, every day. Frankly, if you want to influence your customers and teams for example, work on this skill to help you achieve your goals.
To do this, remember that people are influenced by others whom they like, know, and then trust (in this particular order). Work on these 3 fundementals and watch how you can get others to follow your ideas.
From most of all, i would say that having a purpose is the most important of all elements. You need to know why you are doing what you are doing to achieve any sort of productivity. Imagine not having any purpose, how would you feel enthusiastic about your tasks?
Remember it all starts with having a sense of purpose, and within that, remember that in whatever you do, always have the notion of serving others. This is when it will all start to make sense.
To your Success!
