8 Productivity Hacks To Kickstart the New Year

A new year means a fresh start for everyone. Wipe your slate clean and start over with these 8 productivity hacks for a more productive 2016:

Tip #1:

Know exactly what you don’t do. Keep a “NO THANKS” list. Over time, this list should grow.  This will not only help you manage your time wisely, but will allow you to delegate tasks to more able individuals. Team Work is the key to a productive 2016!


Tip #2:

Define your Most Important Tasks (MITs) by identifying 3-5 things you must accomplish each day. You will improve your overall performance because you can’t focus on your important tasks if you don’t know what’s important.


Tip #3:

Author Alfred Montapert once said, “Don’t confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but doesn’t make any progress.” This year, redefine productivity. It’s not about how much you get done, it’s about the impact you’re having.


Tip #4:

Upon deciding to do something, stay committed and give it your all! Plan and then execute and then plan again and execute again.


Tip #5:

Commit to never multitask ever again. We live in a multi-tab, multiple device, multi –screen world, but none of it is truly good for our productivity levels. Working on one thing at a time will make you faster and less apt to make mistakes.


Tip #6:

Eliminate in-person meetings even if it’s only for one day of the week. Opt to have all meetings online. You’ll be surprised as to how much gets done when you don’t have to fragment your day into multiple pieces so you could attend various meetings.


Tip #7:

Keep your workspace clean. Decide on a day of the month to be the one when you clean off your desk. Every clutter on your desk can serve as a distraction.


Tip #8:

Some people find that unless they schedule “easy going” things, they will never become productive in their work etiquette. I’m not only talking about trips to Paris or London or a 1-week long cruise, I’m talking about the little things: a walk in the park, a 1h/day exercise routine etc or doing a crossword every morning.


Very often, lack of productivity is caused by lack of resources and tools in the workplace, which would allow employees to perform their duties in the most productive ways possible. Employing an effective CRM tool will help you and your team establish and maintain better relationships with your customers….and who doesn’t like happy customers who continuously do business with you? It’s also a tool that takes a customer-centric approach to your sales and support processes by organizing data concerning your contacts, customers, and deals and making them accessible in one place.
