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

St. Clair Shores Multitasking BusinesswomanWhen your day is filled with competing priorities, staying focused can be a major challenge. For St. Clair Shores property investors, there will invariably be 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. However, what is most striking about productivity is that it 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. Luckily, 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

Understanding why you need to finish a task can do a ton to keep you mindful and driven. It’s important to keep the bigger picture in sight, even while taking the many small steps required to get you there. Creating 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.

  1. 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 progression of a huge task and then schedule those steps over a practical timeframe.

  1. Plan Your Routine

Knowing when you do your best work is critical to cultivating the right mindset for productivity. For many individuals, they have more energy and get more done in the morning, while others feel more awake later in the day. By understanding your natural energy rhythms, you can create a routine that gives you a chance to achieve all the more intensely focused tasks at your peak and more receptive ones at different times.

  1. Eliminate Distraction

To ensure you are doing everything as indicated by the plan, sometimes you need to hang the proverbial Do Not Disturb sign on your life. In the event that you can, attempt to schedule certain time slots throughout the day where you remove or ignore all interruptions. That incorporates turning your phone off, muting email, logging out of messenger apps, and whatever else you need to do to avoid anything from breaking your focus.

  1. Schedule Breaks

When completing extensive or intense errands, it’s a good idea to give yourself a mental and physical break before making a beeline for the following 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.

  1. Celebrate Success

When you reach a goal or complete a task that you’ve been working toward, reward yourself! Compensating yourself by doing things you enjoy, like reading 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.

  1. Get Organized

Your workspace is an important part of your productivity. A good tip 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 end up being your space to complete some much-needed tasks.

  1. Practice Self Care

One common-sense truism that is habitually overlooked 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.
