While these tips aren’t really “cheats” , they are shortcuts to help you become more productive. Please try them for a week and then write me back on this blog and let me know how they worked for you!
#1. Don’t answer the phone unless it is an emergency. Yes, don’t be customer orientated while you are working on major projects. In the long run, customers will appreciate this when they receive a product that is comprehensive and outstanding versus a product that is half-put together because you were busy taking phone calls.
#2. Mange anxiety, plan your scope of work for the day, and stay fit at the same time by making sure you walk for a half of an hour before going into work. This is crucial for staying productive.
#3. If you write proposals or any emails for work, write terrible first drafts. Yes, terrible first drafts lead to great final products. Make this a daily practice and your clients and bosses will love you! Just remember to revisit the draft before you turn it in!
