6 Productivity Hacks to Reach Your Goals Faster

We’ve only got limited hours in a day.

With so many things and so many tasks to finish, you’d want to be as productive as possible.

In this article, you’ll learn about 6 productivity hacks that will help you reach your goals faster.

1.     Get Enough Sleep

Sleep is so important that it is at the top of this list.

When you don’t get enough sleep, you have trouble concentrating at work.

Your mind seems to drift every so often to thoughts of hugging your pillow in bed.

Caffeine is a short-term fix to help you focus, but when you’re consistently not getting enough sleep, your productivity is going to go down a lot.

2.     Make Mini-Goals

Don’t be overwhelmed by your seemingly larger-than-life goal list.

Have a daily to-do list, a weekly and monthly checklist.

Breaking down your goal into these mini-goals, makes it easier for your brain to process.

Every time you tick something off your list, you feel positive, and it motivates you to continue doing your tasks.

This helps you to measure your progress, too.

3.     Put on Some Music

This is going to be a matter of personal preference, but many people swear by the power of music.

Generally, it’s classical or instrumental music that people listen to when they want to concentrate on their tasks.

Of course, you’re your own person – you can listen to any type of music that helps you focus.

4.     Keep distractions to a minimum

Find a quiet space to work in.

If you’ve got other people in the room with you, try putting on noise-canceling earphones to block out the sound.

Let your teammates know though, so they can tap your shoulder if they need something from you.

5.     Take Breaks

Breaks are always helpful in helping you recharge your energy and your productivity.

You can go for a quick run if you’re feeling really stressed, or a quick nap if you need to.

6.     Stop Multitasking

When you multitask, you tend not to give your best.

You’re trying to get as many tasks done at the same time, so you can’t focus on any one of them.

Your productivity will be affected if you juggle far too many tasks at once.

Focus on one task, give it your whole attention, and watch what happens to your productivity!

4 Habits of Successful People You Can Copy Right Away

There’s a reason why successful people have turned out the way they have.

They’ve got the discipline, the confidence, the passion, the drive, and the right habits.

In this article, you’ll learn a few habits of successful people that you can copy right away. 

1.     Morning ritual habit

The morning ritual habit is common amongst the world’s most successful people.

They go to bed early, and they wake up early.

While the rest of their household is still in bed, they’d be up and about doing their morning rituals.

As soon as they wake, they’d do their rituals.

Some like to exercise, and some like to meditate.

Most of them, however, take advantage of the quiet to plan out their day ahead.

2.     Read inspiring books

Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men, read 50 books a year!

That’s equivalent to 1 book a week.

He’s obviously a smart guy, but he still reads all these books to learn new things and to get inspired.

Getting started with reading isn’t hard.

You simply need to set aside a block of time each day for reading.

You can do it early in the morning, as part of your morning ritual, or you can do it before bedtime or anytime throughout the day for that matter.

3.     Prioritize the most difficult tasks

Some people like to put off the difficult task for last, but successful people look forward to the opposite.

They recommend getting the most difficult and time-consuming tasks first.

Once you’ve crossed the difficult tasks off your list, you’ll have some momentum, and you can quickly work on the rest of your tasks.

When you save the difficult task for last, you may not have enough time to finish it, and you’ll then need to set aside another time for that, maybe the next day.

4.     Keep a daily journal

Successful people keep a daily journal.

They record their activities for the day, they write down their thoughts, their emotions.

It helps with motivating them on days when they don’t feel like they’re on top of the world.

It helps to reassure them they’re doing something productive.

They can see how far they’ve come and they can assess if they’re going in the right direction.

3 Reasons Taking Action Is Important If You Want to Succeed

For some reason, many people believe they can simply coast through life and still end up successful.

It’s probably the reason why many people fall for get-rich-quick scams. Imagine doing minimal work and raking in bags of cash in return!

If you really want to succeed, you’re going to put in a lot of time and effort to make it work.

You will need to “Take Action”!

Here are 3 reasons why, “Taking Action”, is important if you want to succeed:

1.     It’s your first step towards success

If you don’t “Take Action”, you’re never going to take that first step towards achieving your goals.

You’re never going to go anywhere.

As they say, it’s always the first step that’s the hardest.

It’s relatively easy to choose the right goal and to make a grand plan on how you’re going to achieve that goal.

But going out there and taking that first step, that’s hard.

Many people have fun at the planning stage, but the moment they need to do something, reality sinks in.

“That’s a lot of work,” they’ll say. They’ll start procrastinating, or they’ll start thinking it’s a bad idea.

And they’ll just stop there.

That’s all they do – just plan things, but they never really “Take Action”.

2.     You find out first-hand what’s really working

When you “Take Action”, you find out that whatever you’ve planned isn’t always going to happen.

It isn’t always going to be feasible.

Sometimes, what you think something is may be different from what it is in real life.

Therefore, being flexible and knowing when to adjust is very important.

Your plan is just a general guide – you don’t have to take it at face value.

When you “Take Action” and go out into the real world, you find out what’s working.

You learn to go with the flow.

You learn there’s a better option out there that will help you achieve your goals much faster than what you’ve initially anticipated!

3.     You grow as a person

“Taking Action”, is important if you also want to grow as a person.

On the way to success, you’ll encounter so many obstacles, problems, and challenges. That’s when you grow as a person.

When you learn how to overcome all these obstacles, when you gain new skills, when you develop resilience, you grow as a person.

If you don’t “Take Action”, you’ll remain as you always have been, doing the same things you’ve always been doing.

3 Secret Motivational Strategies

3 Secret Motivation Strategies 

Feeling unmotivated?

There are plenty of ways you can motivate yourself to finish your tasks for the day, tasks that will help you get closer to whatever goals you’ve set for yourself.

Here are 3 motivation strategies that not many people know about.

1.     Reflect on Your Achievements

When you start running out of ideas, or you start feeling like you’re not making any progress at all towards your goals, you can try looking back at your achievements.

Remember how far you’ve come, all the milestones you’ve achieved to date, and you’ll see that everything you’ve done so far has not been wasted. 

Start a journal, write down your thoughts and your feelings. You can also use it to chart your progress.

When you’ve got concrete proof in front of you that you’ve made significant steps towards your goals, you’ll feel so much better.

You’ll feel motivated to continue doing your work and to improve yourself as well.

2.     Learn from Others

If you look up to somebody, you can use them as motivation to continue improving yourself.

This is especially true if that somebody has found success in life. You’ll learn a lot from them.

You don’t even have to know them in person.

You can read news articles and books about them.

Learn their background – do they have a special story to tell?

Let them inspire you.

You can also start following them on social media if they’re on there. Many successful people use social media nowadays, and they strive to provide plenty of value to their followers.

3.     Mentor Other People

Teaching other people what you know will also motivate you to become a much better person.

Other people are looking up to you, you don’t want to fail them.

You want to show them that you’re capable of being a good mentor. It will help build your self-confidence and your self-esteem.

I’m sure you’ve had a favorite teacher or mentor in school – what did they do to make them stand out from the other teachers?

I’m willing to bet it’s because they taught you a lot about different subjects, maybe about life in general.

You can do the same to your mentee(s) – show them you genuinely care for them, it will motivate them to learn.

Their motivation will rub off on you – so it’s really a win-win situation.

  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: 7.7 million, 3.5%
  • Social Anxiety Disorder: 15 million, 6.8%.
  • Specific Phobia affects: 19 million, 8.7%.

  • Regain control of their health and life
  • Live a balanced, happy, and fulfilling life

Limiting Beliefs

3 Ways Your Limiting Beliefs Hold You Back

Limiting beliefs, whether you realize it or not, have a profound effect on our lives. They can affect your life in so many ways, and none of the ways they can affect your life are good.

When you can let go of your limiting beliefs, you can change your life and start living the life that you’ve always wanted.

Here are three ways that your limiting beliefs are holding you back from realizing your dreams and living the life you want.

1. They Taint Your Experience of Living

When you are constricted by your limiting beliefs, you will do far fewer things over the course of your life.

For example, if you believe that roller coasters are dangerous, you will probably never ride one, and you’d miss out on the thrill that so many others have experienced.

No matter how great your life is at this current moment, you are holding onto beliefs that are stopping you from experiencing life to the fullest.

2. They Make You inefficient

The limiting beliefs that we are holding onto cause us to find an alternate path.

If we believe that the best route won’t work for us, we can spend a ton of time following a less direct way to work around our limiting belief.

You may have always dreamed of being a teacher but believe that you can’t make a living as a teacher, so you do everything but teach.

Save yourself time and deal with the beliefs that are holding you back rather than giving up on what you really want.

3. They Can Cause You to Unintentionally Harm Others

Your beliefs are more like a virus and less like math because they are more likely to be caught then they are to be taught.

Even if you have the best of intentions, you can infect others with your limiting beliefs.

The limiting beliefs that you pass onto others then affect them for the rest of their lives.

You need to take some time and consider who you are infecting with your limiting beliefs and how those beliefs are affecting them and their own potential to live their best life.

Limiting beliefs can be incredibly destructive and will always keep you from achieving the life that you’ve always wanted.

If you want to change your life you need to identify your limiting beliefs and start taking the necessary steps to overcome them.

Hypnosis is an excellent way to rid yourself of your limiting beliefs quickly and easily.

Emotional Needs in Business

 
 
Everyone has emotional needs, in business and our private lives, which are essential to leading an emotionally balanced life.
 
This is especially true for entrepreneurs as they work in the public domain as they operate their business for all to see. 
 
The needs which need to be met include:
  • Giving and receiving attention
  • Having a sense of control
  • Having purpose and meaning in our lives
  • Having stimulation and creativity
  • Being aware of the mind-body connection.
When we don’t have our needs met appropriately, we may seek out alternative solutions.
 
For a problem like smoking, for example –
  • Smoking as a way of ‘breaking the ice’ when socializing
  • Smoking as a way of making sure we take a break
  • Smoking to have a sense of control in our lives
  • As everything else seems out of our control we can decide to smoke and when to smoke; or smoking to give us stimulation.
 
A single issue or problem can have many different solutions.
 
By learning which need is being met by the problem, it is possible to address that need directly. As that need gets met, it is much less likely the problem will continue. It will be more likely it will be easier to move on and keep the changes.
 
Setting tasks can also create situations where the needs met appropriately through a safer, more acceptable behavior. Activities like hobbies, sports or learning can help to meet their needs.
 
By analyzing which needs are not being met, or are being met inappropriately, it is possible to dramatically speed up the time it takes to resolve the problem.
 
The impact will be much greater, as they continue to cope with life after therapy.
