You strive to be your best at work, at home, and at everything you do. Most days you're satisfied with what you've accomplished, but there are times when you glance at the clock and realize it's already 3:00 pm and you haven't made a dent in your to-do list. If you need help getting things done, there's no shortage of productivity tools available. There are apps to manage your schedule and share tasks, YouTube videos to demonstrate how to prioritize your time or organize your closet, and life coaches, workshops, and online courses to help you set and achieve goals. These productivity boosters are just one part of the equation. To perform at a consistently high level, the key is to build healthy, productive habits and stick with them until they become an established part of your daily routine.<
Maintaining good habits isn't always easy. How many times have you congratulated yourself for getting into a positive new routine, only to revert to old patterns a few days later? So many things, trivial or significant, can knock you off track - a bad night's sleep, a traffic jam on the way to work, a sick child, a global pandemic. Whatever the reason, you'll miss a day, then a couple more, and suddenly you're back where you started — and the habit you felt so good about is now just a memory. Why does this happen, and how can you avoid it?
A successful and productive routine begins with thoughtful planning. As you create and execute your plan, be on the lookout for these common pitfalls:
• Having unrealistic expectations of yourself.
• Being a perfectionist.
• Not allowing time in your schedule for things to go wrong
• Forgetting to schedule breaks and downtime.
• Focusing too much energy on one area of your life.
• Committing to a process or activity that you don't enjoy.
• Committing to a habit that is inconvenient, impractical, or doesn't fit your lifestyle.
• Procrastinating, justifying, and overthinking.
• Creating goals that don't lead you where you ultimately want to go.
Avoiding these common productivity roadblocks will help you stay on track as you work toward your goals. Planning out your day will not only help you organize your time and maintain healthy habits but can provide you with a sense of control and reduce stress, even during uncertain times.
