Start working smarter instead of harder

There are 2 ways to increase the productivity of any person, no matter what she is doing. The first one is making her work harder. If you are a web-designer and you create one WP template in a day, you should simply start creating more – 2 or 3 templates in a day. That’s the simplest way to increase your productivity.

Another way is working smarter, not harder. That is the much more effective solution, though it’s still hard to be found. It means not working more, but working more rationally and smarter.

For example, for creating more WP templates, you should hire some young web-designer. He would help you with your work, allowing you to earn more from your templates. As a result, you could probably delegate your task for growing your business.

Of course, that’s just an example – in reality working smarter is difficult. You should remember several simple facts.

There is an 80/20 principle

80% of success is the result of only 20% of our efforts.

Multitasking is impossible

Multitasking is a myth. People can’t be doing several tasks at the same time; they just switch between them. As a result, their attention is being used not effectively.

The most difficult tasks first

It’s a well-known fact that the most difficult job should be done first. In this case completing your other tasks would become easier.

Deadlines should be set

A deadline is an effective tool for controlling your workflow. It allows controlling your efforts and monitor your results, whether you have enough time for completing the task, or not.
