How to Increase Productivity When You Have Deadlines
Stepping into quicksand is an unsavoury experience. First, you are unaware of where you’ve misplaced yourself until you feel yourself slipping down and sinking into unknown depths. Slowly, you will be dragged down and you can’t escape. All that’s left is the blanket of darkness. That’s what it feels like to be in a mental rut.
Losing the will and motivation to do something is a difficult thing to face when you have deadlines and targets to hit. It’s no secret that we work for financial freedom. That freedom that comes with financial stability has a price. Eventually, you will find yourself in a state of burnout. The pressure to keep working and produce the best result is daunting and extreme in some cases. If you are under financial pressure, to perform, then you probably aren’t going t odd your best.
Deadlines do not have a compassionate ear. and while can give a much needed push to get things done, thinking about them too much can make you lose focus.
First, you need to become reacquainted with your work. Even if you have a career that isn’t lively or exciting, you can refresh your perspective on it. This doesn’t mean that you will suddenly feel the urge to tackle projects with an obnoxious smile on your face, but you would have reignited some interest in your work.
One way to do this is to take a break from the clockwork and preoccupy yourself with something else. When you want to take a break from work do so by engaging in a hobby because you won’t because won’t be mindlessly doing something else. You will be using your time to destress without turning your brain off. That way, when you return to your work you won’t feel like your mind is stalled or has become accustomed to being on “vacation mode”.
Now that you would have spent some time to ease your mind. You should approach your work with clean mind. Whatever your hobby may be, there is some analytical or problem-solving component attached to it. If your hobby is playing video games, the end goal is to defeat the enemy. If you are an amateur photographer, then you are trying to find art around you. If you a stamp collector, then you are using your research skills to find stamps to add to your collection.
You were warming up during your break to put yourself to the task. Work your way back to reverse engineer a workplace. If you know your deadline and end goal, then create steps to accomplish those goals. If you need a place to structure these thoughts then look for a planner system that can help you to create a road map.
This roadmap is a beacon of light that will guide you to your goals. However, a good system only works if you stick to it.
