As an online entrepreneur, have must have thought of how you could be more productive and get a better result?
The answer is developing a daily routine common among other productive online entrepreneurs.
If you want to be successful, you need to do some things. You need to have a productivity routine that will set you up for success. I use these routines and they work for me.
In this article, I will be sharing with you the productivity routine that has set me up for success. Do you really want to be more productive and get more results? Then you should read through to the end if you are struggling with getting things done.
I will be sharing with you six routines.
6 Daily Routine To Become A Productive Online Entrepreneur
1, Creating a good morning routine
Sure you know that the morning is one of the most important aspects of the day when you get to set yourself up properly for the day. If you can take very good care of your morning routine, your day will be more productive.
For me, the first thing I do when I wake up is to stay calm on my bed for 10 to 15mins to meditate, pray, think about myself, my goals, what I did the previous day, things I left undone, and what I should do for the day. This helps me to discover whether my activities are in sync with my goals.
Next, I move to my table and make a to-do list for the day.
Depending on what suits you, you should take out time in the morning immediately you wake up to reflect on your goals and activities. This will help you measure your goals and activity and give you a better edge to structuring the rest of the day for productivity.
This leads me to the second routine.
2, Prioritizing Task
At this point, you should map out all that you have to do in the order of importance and urgency.
You wouldn’t want to leave out an urgent task to do that which you still have ample time to attend to. If you do not have any urgent tasks then you should prioritize the important tasks that will take you so much time to do and require more of your brainpower.
Doing the heavy task in the morning helps you focus on nitty-gritty details. The brain is said to be more productive in the morning. The brain often releases so much energy for me before 12noon. This isn’t peculiar to me, scientists have reported that the brain is more productive in the early hours of the day and during the cool evening.
Create a to-do list and prioritize your work for the day.
3, Focus on one thing at a time
Because you have a to-do list it helps me to prioritize and do one thing at a time.
A lot of people want to do multiple tasks at the same time. This was me before, but this is not productive. The moment I stopped multitasking, I started becoming more productive. List all you need to do out and have a focus at every point in time.
Focusing on one task at a time will help you do thighs better and faster.
4, Take Breaks
Do you know about the Pomodoro technique? This technique helps you to improve productivity and focus. Pomodoro techniques encourage that you should take 5mins break after every 25minutes of work. This technique has helped a lot of people to be more productive.
It works for me and it will work for you too. It helps to reduce mental fatigue. I will advise most online entrepreneurs to start doing this. It will be really cool if you try to destress yourself, take breaks, and have a walk.
When taking breaks, make sure it doesn’t last for too long and doesn’t push you off the zone of work that you are doing. Some kind of breaks you take might get you distracted from the zone of work for that day.
Personally, I take about 10mins to read. This helps me keep my brain in line with what I am doing since I am still brain-focused with what I am doing.
5, Managing your time effectively
Managing your time is very important. We need time to get things done but sadly we all have 24hours daily. Poor time management is one thing that kills most entrepreneurs today. Knowing when to work and when not to work is very important.
When you sit to work, try as much as you can to cut off too many distractions from social media, colleagues, family, and several places. This will help you become better and get more work done.
6, Celebrate Your Wins
This really wins me and makes me feel good and helps me pursue all of my goals and reflect o them.
There are many people who do not do this but it is very important and one of the things you need in your backpack to become more successful. Most people feel they have not achieved the big goal yet hence there is no need for celebration.
One of the best things you can do for yourself is celebrating every little win. The energy of celebration is important to push you on. Be happy for what you have done currently, where you are currently, and where you want to be.
Here is the trick. Break down your goals into very simple chunks that will lead to another and once you achieve a chunk, celebrate!
You don’t have to throw a big party to celebrate and spend a lot of money. You can post it on social media, talk to a friend about it and laugh about it.
Also, reflect on what you did that landed you that success and also what you should do to achieve the next milestone
