There are a few very important strategies that, if you adopt them, will help you to increase productivity and bring order to every area of your life. To begin with, procrastination is death to progress. This doesn't mean that you will always manage to keep absolutely on track for everything you want to do. What it does mean is that you break larger tasks down into smaller units, and plan to start and finish a certain number of those smaller tasks every day. The finishing is just as important as the starting.

What You Can Eliminate to Increase Productivity

What you actually eliminate from your life will also help you to increase productivity. All activities that are not either somehow connected with your future goals, or pleasurable, or necessary for your health and rest, should be eliminated as far as possible. Remember that your main goals will be supported by what you may perceive as lesser goals, such as taking the time to take care of your health and your spiritual side. If you push too hard in any one direction, other areas of your life will suffer; in the long run this could actually decrease productivity.

If you've tried hard but are still finding it difficult to increase productivity, it may help to take a course of some kind. Perhaps read a few books on the subject. Getting inspired is half the battle. You will find that once you embark on a project to increase your levels of efficiency and achieve better time management, every small success will spur you to move on to larger successes in this direction.

In essence, to get where you want to go you need to make use of all the best methods of time management and efficiency to achieve your dreams, yet welcome reality as a part of life. Reading books, and perhaps hiring a personal coach can all be good strategies for learning how to increase productivity. Even talking to people that you know who have obviously mastered the skills you are seeking can be a wonderful source of further inspiration and knowledge.
