If you want to be productive, you have to be really precise about your goals. Instead of speaking, just do it and show it. Each successful person had failures and mistakes on his / her way of learning and trying before succeeding to reach the final goal.
The thing is that these people hide their iceberg of work. They have a clear structure and concrete steps to work towards their goal.

6. Eat well and healthy, as it will help you to concentrate better and to have more energy
Good health is also very important. if you don’t eat well you have less energy. it also influences your motivation. for example eating a lot of sweets gives energy but for a short time and then you feel so hungry shortly again. heavy food make you sleepy and is not healthy. eating that can also lead to lack of vitamins and can reduce your productivity consequently. the same things all the time without variation can make you feel bored and you can start eating more.

7. Establish a consistent work process.
Sometimes it’s so difficult to get used to the consistent work, for example writing every morning. In this case you can take a piece of paper and write down the things you want to do. The best way is to write them in the evening in order to check them in the morning and start working with a clear structure and well defined realistic tasks.
Sometimes you don’t like tasks and you freak out without doing anything. set could help you there is a trick that could help you to manage doing it. So you have to tell your mind the TV just tried for a very short. Of time maybe 5 or 10 minutes. in this way so you don’t like to do with you feels that it’s a very short time and then you don’t have to do it anymore. you can start the day after day working at some tasks that you don’t like and after 21 days you will get used to it and can do it more time longer. by 21 days because it’s a psychological h1. Of time but if I need to get something into a habit. So just going to try it and share your experience in comments.
8. Mindset, attitude and motivation.
Being productive has also to do with motivation. If you don’t feel motivated by what you’re doing, you get less results. If you are not motivated you just don’t want to do things. In order to keep motivated it’s important to be mindful not only of your goal but also of the reason why you are doing it. We all speak about the famous “why”, the one thing that we forgot is to keep that “why” in your heart. Subconsciously you already know why you’re working at this or that task, as you get tired on board you feel easily discouraged you can also stop trying if you are not getting it at once. If you really feel inspiration and enthusiasm thinking of your future achievements, you will stay tuned each step of the way.
Another very important criteria in productivity is a correct mindset. you at work influences the quality and focus of your work. the concept mindset attitude goal setting – they all belong to a bigger concept for you and your life goals.
it’s very important when doing something be able to see the reason and sense behind it. we are looking for some sense some meaning in life you know actions in our thoughts in other people in the world that surrounds us. if you don’t see any sense a little sense in what you’re doing you may quit it easily, feel dissatisfaction, undo things without any purpose.
That´s why it´s very important to be mindful of the meaning of each task. You can ask yourself: “Does it make sense? Will it bring me forward towards my goal? How it will help me to achieve my goal? Is it really necessary to do or can I omit it?” in this way you make your mind sure that the actions of tasks that you are doing really matters. this helps you to work with an asserted mind.
Your behavior can be also productive or not. New habits and your lifestyle play role and how you work if you are a morning person or an evening person which time of the day you’re working maybe you just go out during the most productive time so then you have to restructure your day.
What also has to do with the attitude with me to work and your motivation is being surrounded by the right people and being so sure of your decision set nobody can make you change your mind. people also critique headers and make them doubt. try to avoid people who criticize your phone you don’t support your idea. Don’t hang out with people who don’t care your lifestyle your way to see the world don’t lose your time to hear critics. going to run yourself is like minded people who support each other on the way of fulfilling their plans and ideas. bringing communities people the same interests go 2 meters go to conferences go to vans that has to do with your idea. In this way you will be more motivated and also more productive.
9. Make or join a mastermind
The good idea to become productive is to have a mastermind with other people who have similar plans like for example starting a business or on the same phase in the business as you. they come from different area and you can share knowledge with each other set weekly goals and be accountable of fulfilling them. You can also choose a place where you all go and work. is also quoted change places from time to time it’s good for your mind just for a change of space. sometimes working in the same place can make you. That’s why it’s really good sometimes to try another place to work from.
10. Use templates, calendar and productivity apps that facilitate your work process and structure.
Productivity also means using good planning templates or calendar. Use an online calendar or if you prefer to write, then buy a calendar. I definitely recommend you to use Google Calendar, as it´s very practical and it also synchronizes with my calendar on the smartphone. You can also share your appointments with your friends or your team. And the best thing is that you don´t have to carry the calendar with you all the time not to forget your timetable.
