9 Tips to Increase Daily Productivity

One of the keys to my success is my daily productivity

The more I get done in a day, the closer I get to achieving my goals, and the faster I accumulate wealth.

I like to “make progress daily” on my businesses, even if it’s moving the needle a mere .1%.

I sleep better at night knowing that I improved something or learned something.

I tend to put in a lot of hours in the building stages and as I develop systems and improve my daily productivity and eventually my businesses require less and less of my time.

I have studied productivity and have over 25 years of experience in building businesses.

Here are 9 daily productivity tips quickly get you winning!

These 9 tips will increase your daily productivity

It makes sense that the more you get done and increase daily productivity, the faster you can grow your business and in turn, your profits.

Unfortunately, productivity doesn’t come easy for everyone.

You don’t need to work long hours to achieve your dreams.

You just need to work hard and consistently.

Check out these productivity hacks recommended by Brian Pfeiffer(The MarketingMeatHead) which show businesses how they can work smarter, not harder.

1. Start Your Morning with the “Big Stretch” And Immediate Light 

Your body language can have a direct impact on your thought process and behavior. Start each morning off by going into a “Big Stretch” with a straight core and hands above your head

This amazing stretch can help make you feel more energetic, motivated, and productive which can follow you throughout your day.

Once out of bed open up the blinds and let the light in, hopefully, sunlight that will immediately signal your brain it is time to wake up.

2. Reanalyze Your Sleep Habits

Your sleep habits play a pivotal role in your energy levels, mood, and overall ability to get things done.

If you find that your sleep schedule has led to lost productivity, try to modify how and when you sleep.

Go to sleep at the same time each night in a cool and comfortable room.

Here is a great video on sleep cycles

Avoid screen time and work for at least an hour before sleep.

You also want to avoid eating for at least three hours before bed, except for my casein protein shake before bed and my zinc and magnesium pills 

3. Develop a Strong Morning Routine

How you start your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.

A good morning routine should include a little time outdoors to help wake you up and keep your circadian rhythm in check.

I like to ride the recumbent bike and then take a dip in the pool, it makes me feel amazing.

Check out the BIKE I use

Ideally, you should drink at least 16 ounces of water after waking up.

For a calming experience, try meditation in the morning.

Also, take a few moments to review and plan your day.

4. Block Off Some ‘Cave Time’

Block off a few hours in your schedule each day for ‘cave time’.

This refers to the time where you deeply focus on nothing but work.

Turn off your phone and other devices that could result in interruptions.

Cave time is when you should plan to get your most important work completed.

I tend to do this late at night since in the daytime there are so many distractions 

5. Plan Vital Tasks the Night Before

Each day you should have no more than three MITS (Most Important Tasks).

These are tasks that you need to get done no matter what.

Ideally, these are tasks that you should complete first thing in the morning.

6. Reduce Your Time on Social Media

Social media can be a real productivity killer.

Consider how much time you spend on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and your other social media accounts.

If you’re not sure how much time you’re actually wasting, download an app like RescueTime which tells you where you are spending most of your time.

You can then proceed to block these sites when you are working.

7. Work Out in the Mornings

Starting your day is challenging when you are feeling fatigued.

To get a spurt of energy, start your morning with a quick workout.

I do cardio in the morning for 50 minute and train weights in the late evening

Just five minutes of exercise can give you the energy you need to power through your day.

8. Try the Pomodoro Technique

If you are having trouble concentrating on your work, try the Pomodoro Technique.

This involves setting a timer for 25 minutes and working until the timer goes off.

Then set it for 5 minutes and take a break during this time.

Repeat this four times, and then take a longer break.

9. Use Kanban to Boost Your Productivity

Kanban is a method that turns complex information into images.

It is designed to improve workflow.

Using a software program like Trello or Breeze.pm, set up six lists that include “To Do”, “3 MIT”, “Doing”, “Done”, “Backlog”, and “Delegated”.

Having a visual checklist can help keep you on track.

The visual feel is great when the big to-do list is moved over to the done list

It’s your choice to be productive

I hear this all the time we all have the same 24 hours.

In a world of phones, Netflix, video games, and plenty of fun and cool things to take up your “spare time”  you have to make a lot of decisions on when to work on your business.

I like to have fun too, but the key to success is maximizing your productivity when you are working and getting the most out of each and every day

The more you get done and the more you build systems that grow your business the more you will have time to enjoy the fun things you like to do.
