A productive week depends heavily on your focus and the time you spend House work. Working harder doesn’t mean you’re productive. There will always be a better way to do this task. Find them, work smart and do more during the week.

1. Stop planning and act

It’s okay to take the time to plan what needs to be done in the week or month. However, if you return to the planning table, you can lose productive hours. Instead of planning, do it. The possibility of working on a task in the future instead of now seems convenient, but it doesn’t make sense. Even if you tell yourself that you shouldn’t do it now, this task won’t go anywhere else. Instead of hesitating, do it and cross it off your to-do list.
Are your work meetings worth it? Many people spend too much time in meetings when they should be working. Make a time budget to make sure you get the most out of your day. This way you can see how many hours you are wasting on meetings or plan when to do real things. You will be amazed at what you can do every week when you start measuring the time you spend on these activities.
2. You don’t have to say yes to every request

“The difference between successful and very successful people is that the latter say” no “to almost everything,” said Warren Buffet
Saying “yes” to a query seems easier than saying “no”. Still, it is difficult for you to have a schedule that you can control every time you accept something that doesn’t give you results. You can achieve more if you know what to do, when to do it, and what you want to achieve.
3. Don’t expect to be a perfectionist
If you keep looking for perfection, it may take longer to complete tasks and you will certainly be less productive than planned. The reason is that if you strive for perfection, you spend more time on a task than necessary, which causes others to fall behind. This will waste your time and possibly annoy your boss. Perfectionism is even higher when you just have to be accountable to yourself.
4. Get everything out of your head

Go back to your to do list, cross out and find out what you couldn’t do and why. Celebrate yours triumphsWrite down everything you’ve moved and learn from your mistakes. You are better prepared for the next week.
