6. Avoid procrastination by having a structure
Procrastination in one area can lead to loss of productivity in another because when you get things handled you build momentum through action. That's why you hear people say, "If you want something done ask a busy person".
The best way to avoid procrastination is to have a working structure that keeps you on track. A very simple structure is a 'To Do' list that reminds you to make that phone call and send that email.
7. Celebrate your wins
Whenever you and/or one of your team achieve a goal or complete a task well make sure to celebrate and then reward yourself and them in some way for a job well done. This is often overlooked because people don't realise how important it is.
By celebrating and rewarding even in the smallest way we all feel nurtured, and this will help create higher levels of productivity and motivation.
By applying these simple ideas you will increase your productivity and the productivity of your team.
