It’s common to hear that people are struggling at work with challenges that hold them back. Some of us working from home, get distracted. For those of us who went back to the office months ago are finding that interruptions kill productivity. When I talk to people about their productivity challenges I hear:
“Procrastination holds me back.”
“I don’t stick to time blocks that I have on my calendar.”
“It feels like I don’t accomplish enough in my day.”
“There is so much to do, I never prioritize, I’m just putting out fires.”
“I’m so distracted. This big project, it just never gets done.”
Here are some ways to stay on track:
- Set aside time to work on specific projects
- Set weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly goals
- Choose three important tasks to work on each day
You might be thinking, sure, ‘I’ve tried all that. It never seems to work out.’ It might be because you never fully committed to the work or never had the support.
Who can help you stay productive? A group of like minded people who all want to feel successful and accomplished-An accountability group. Get the support you need to keep going throughout the day. Get your work done with the guidance of a Productivity Coach and with a supportive group of colleagues. An accountability group will provide you with the tools to keep you on track to achieve success and get your most important work done.
What we do? Each day during Productivity Power Hour we choose one thing to work on-just one. We all meet in zoom and complete the work. You are expected to show up, do the work and report in on your success at the end of the hour. You are encouraged to set monthly, quarterly and yearly goals and work towards achieving them, each and every day.
