Eight Habits to Get Your Mind Right (and Stay Productive All Day)

Riverdale Multitasking BusinesswomanWhen your day is filled with competing priorities, staying focused can be a major challenge. For Riverdale property investors, expect to see long lists of things that need doing, as well as things that you should be doing, to keep your rental property investments protected and growing in value.

With so many potential distractions, your daily productivity can suffer. It is quite intriguing to know that productivity is not a question of how long or how hard you are working, but how much you are able to accomplish in the time that you have. The good thing about this is there are eight basic habits that can help you get (and stay) in the right mindset for more focused, productive workdays.

1.      Create Daily Goals

Getting to know your motivations for wanting to complete a task can help keep your focus and stay motivated. It’s important to keep the bigger picture in sight, even while taking the many small steps required to get you there. Producing a list of daily priorities can help you make sure the important things are being done while checking them off can help you feel and be more productive.

2.      Divide and Conquer

Property investing involves many big tasks that are easily broken down into smaller ones. To avoid feeling overwhelmed or stressed, try creating a daily, weekly, or even monthly action plan that assigns each level of a huge task and then outlines those actions over a practical schedule.

3.      Plan Your Routine

Knowing when you do your best work is critical to cultivating the right mindset for productivity. For some people, they have more energy and get more done in the morning, while others feel more awake later in the day. Through means of understanding your natural energy rhythms, you can create a routine that enables you to do more heavily focused tasks at your peak and more amenable ones at other times.

4.      Eliminate Distraction

If you genuinely want to succeed at your jobs, sometimes you need to hang the proverbial Do Not Disturb sign on your life. If you must, try to schedule certain time slots throughout the day where you remove or ignore all interruptions. That entails turning your phone off, muting email, logging out of messenger apps, and whatever else you need to do to shun anything that is hindering you from doing what you need to do.

5.      Schedule Breaks

After achieving thorough or intensive tasks, it’s a good idea to give yourself a mental and physical break before moving on to the next one. If your task was done sitting at a computer or conference table, walk around a bit. If your task was an active one, sit and rest for a few minutes.

6.      Celebrate Success

When you reach a goal or accomplish something you’ve been striving toward, reward yourself! Giving yourself a reward by doing things you like, for example, you may want to start browsing a favorite blog, playing a game or sport, or spending time with friends and loved ones can help keep you motivated and ready to conquer the next challenge that comes your way.

7.      Get Organized

Your workspace is an important part of your productivity. A good suggestion is to organize it in such a way that you want to be there. A comfortable chair, a clean desk, and some background study music or noise-canceling headphones can help you create a productivity zone that will be your place to get things done.

8.      Practice Self Care

One common-sense truism that is regularly disregarded is that you won’t be able to accomplish much if you are not taking care of your own personal wellness first. A healthy diet and adequate amounts of sleep are essential to staying focused and productive all day.
