Productivity fluctuates; sometimes you do a lot, while in other instances you can’t seem to complete even the easiest tasks. Some assignments that can be completed in a short period of time take hours or even days.
Isn’t this frustrating? Of course, it is!
Low productivity has a major impact on our confidence. When you perform well, your self-esteem and confidence are through the roof. On the other hand, productivity struggles usually make you feel you’re incompetent or that you are just not cut out for the task at hand.
First, bear in mind that everyone experiences problems with performance so the root of the issue is not your competence. Instead of blaming yourself, you should focus on identifying productivity killers.
Why? When you determine factors that affect your performance, you can develop a strategy to solve them or avoid those situations. The result is logical – better productivity.
The biggest productivity killers are:
- Social media
- Checking email constantly
- Unreliable technology
- Lack of sleep
- The internet
Let’s not forget that poor organization skills can also make you work more and accomplish less. Basically, everything you do has either positive or negative impact on your productivity.
