5 mantras to achieve productivity

As a freelancer or entrepreneur, it's easy to get bogged down with a lot of work. During the day, you are so busy but at the end of the day, you find it hard to account for what you've been able to achieve. If this sounds like you, these mantras will transform you from slacker to game changer in no time.   

-Do less : Multitasking is a big lie. Focusing on one thing at a time will definitely help to achieve more faster and meet your deadlines

-Outsource it: There's only so much you can do as a person. People like this have created a way out for you when you're not able to keep up with all your tasks. Don't forget you only live once!

-Optimize with lists: As much as you probably like to take advantage of being in a digital age; writing things on paper will never go out of style. Making your lists on a sheet of paper instead of your notes app is 100 times more effective. Write out everything you need to do in order of importance and tick them off as you get them done. 

-Sometimes disconnect: Do not wait to feel frustrated, restless or anxious  taking a break every now and then helps you to stay productive and refreshed. Listen to music, watch a movie, play a game etc whatever helps you relax  

-Leverage on Apps/Tools : Thank God for technology and software developers; they deserve a special place in heaven. Use Google Calendar to keep your life organised, Evernote to improve your work flow,Pocket to get ideas and save up for later, Canva will turn you to a designer overnight and a host of others. 

Hope you find these mantras useful and apply them to your life and work!
