We’re all guilty of putting things off for a later on occasion, and let’s be honest, quitting procrastination isn’t easy. So, if you’re ready to start getting things done, these six productivity tips can help!
Make Your Bed
Making your bed first thing in the morning can set you up for a productive day. How? By knocking one item off of your to-do list before you even leave your bedroom, you’ll be motivated to keep completing tasks throughout the day. Who knew such a simple task could have such a big impact?
Set Daily Goals
After you’ve made your bed and you’re sipping your morning coffee, take a moment to plan out your day. Setting goals for your day will help you stay focused. Plus, if you work from home, a daily plan can help you establish a stopping point for the day.
Set Weekly Goals
Similar to daily goals, setting weekly goals will help you stay focused on the big picture and prioritize your tasks. Planning out your week can also help you break down large projects into manageable bite-sized chunks. This will help relieve stress and keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
Block Out Digital Distraction
It’s easy to get side-tracked by social media, text messages, or other digital distractions. To circumvent those distractions, try putting your phone away during work hours. Or, use an app like Freedom or Offtime to block distracting apps and sites.
Add a Power Hour to Your Schedule
The hardest time to focus is usually right before a scheduled break and before the end of the workday. So, utilize power hours during those times to keep you on task. Just write down a realistic goal to accomplish that hour. Then block out all distractions and focus on completing your goal before the hour is up.

Use the Pomodoro Technique
If feeling overwhelmed or staying on task is a consistent issue for you, try the Pomodoro technique. Instead of choosing a task you can complete in an hour, choose a task or part of a task that can be completed in 25 minutes. Set a timer and give the task all of your focus. When the timer goes off, take a quick five to 10-minute break. Then, choose another task and repeat the process.
