2016 it’s time will focus on our PET session, the business growth plan. The plan starts with identifying and eliminating the performance of our time, all that we can achieve great things in the new year. Below are our 7 tips on how to be more productive in 2016.

#1. Take a break Between tasks

There are some days when I Wake up and realize that I have to perform an endless list of tasks. I frantically write down everything in my notebook and then go to try to they were all completed. It is NOT an effective way to manage your time or his duties.

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

Prioritize what you need immediately.
Take a short break between jobs and ask yourself: “is this really important” or “moving to reach me closer to my business goals.”
If the answer is no, then you move on to the next immediately an important task.
You can return to previous tasks if they were completed important tasks.
Tip: trust me on this. I can’t tell you how many times I tried, rushing through my job, only to discover that my day gone, and I closed not from the actual values. Prioritization is the key!

#2. Steer Clear of “perfectionism Predator”

After communication expert Anett grant: “perfectionism predator performance.” This is another point that I am acquainted with a great. I suffer from something called “perfectionism is paralysis.” This feature can be defined as the desire to unrealisier Baren goals. To achieve the idea, or the impossibility of a certain perfection puts me on one of procrastination and paralysis cycle where I’m not looking for some reason, the product or program for fear of criticism that the project is not perfect. This sounds familiar for everyone? I find myself doing it quite often. To keep I really need to keep me in line.

#3. Beware of social media time Sucking

The problem with social media is that you can register, send some tweets to work or business in a Facebook post, but then you have to check your news feed, and then next thing you know two hours have passed and you will get a has not done anything significant.

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

Specific time blocks per day for use of social media for companies.
keep your personal social media time for business time.
You can also use it as a distraction. To go every time you receive a notification that the photo was published, or that they were identified in one post, your immediate response is, check it out. Am I right? These distractions, eating up precious time and keeps you from reaching your goals.

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

Turn off all notifications from their social networks.
Put a certain time to check for updates.
#4. Meditation for Massive growth

Don’t run for the hills. Meditation can be offputting for some people. I’m not sure why, but this, of course, a few scares. Don’t be afraid!

Meditation has been proven to reduce stress, improve focus and concentration, increase emotional intelligence and creativity and to improve their overall health. It’s all pretty big stuff, so why not give him a chance?

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

Download the app Headspace. This free app will practice you started on simple and easy, meditation, and all you need is 10 minutes a day. Here it is! I encourage you to try it out.

#5. Stop Multitasking

Multitasking is trying to do more than one thing at a time, and one of the worst productivity killer. In the era of smartphones, tablets, smart watches, E-Mail, facetime and social media, it’s as easy multitasking, without noticing. And here’s the news, our brains are not connected, it works like this. The researchers found that when we try multitasking, the brain “bottlenecks” the information and quickly moves its attention from one case to another, not the elements at the same time. Instead be more productive if you can connect with multiple tasks at once, this suggests that we exhausted still, and, therefore, less able hand load, high work.

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

Can you find a distraction-free work space. I suggest the library.
Block out distractions turn off all your devices.
Set a timer and work in two hour blocks without distractions.
Tips: just in case that you do not block more confidence, all the distractions can help on their own, them some the application. Check out:

Dark Room, full screen mode, distraction without writing environment. The dark room-it’s just you and your text.

Rescue Time is a web tool that tracks what a user has done all day, so you can know where you can spend the time better self-control, and change the number useful.
#6. Get a Grip on E-Mail

How often do you feel overwhelmed by E-Mail? I think quite often. Pet sitter e-mail, all hours of the day, requests and changes to existing customers, new customer requests and e-mails of their employees. He is infinite! I honestly feel I can write a whole mini-course on the subject, but for today, I’ll give you some tips briefly.

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

Not check email constantly through the day. Put a certain time for when you check and respond to emails.
Set boundaries and expectations of its customers, putting the answering machine, which clearly defines their working hours and when they can expect to hear from you again.
Create templates for frequently used responses so that you can quickly cut and paste.
Opt-out of receiving e-mail messages that pollute your Inbox. (I hope they from me, but if so, I get it. 😉 )
Tip: you can always Feedly account and subscribe to RSS feeds authors, the content that you want to read. So you will still get updates, but they will be neatly organized.

#7. Allocate time for yourself

Take the time off-this is one of the most difficult things for a PET sitter to do. For some reason, they expected, on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The expectation that I will never understand at all. This is not a healthy way of life and the recipe, of course, pamper your productivity. You need time to clear your mind and recharge your new engines.

The decision to Be as Productive As possible:

You plan your vacation early in the year and peruse their client list so that you can plan your trips accordingly.
I would also recommend to hire another pet-sitter, ceilings of your visit or contact with local PE sessions for business owners covering their workload during their downtime.
I wish you a happy and productive 2016. You have it!
