How To Get More Done During The Day So You Can Enjoy Those Sweet Summer Evenings

When summer rolls around, it’s easy to fall into perpetual vacation mode. Our to-do lists seem less urgent and before we know it, productivity is a thing of the past. But here’s the thing: Having a productive summer doesn’t mean spending your time in a cubicle while your friends are out having fun. It’s all about working smarter, not longer.


Take multiple small breaks instead of one long one

Think about how long it typically takes you to get focused on a single task. (And, yes, let’s stick to a single task. We all know by now that multitasking is a myth.) Chances are you don’t immediately jump into work mode. No, you probably need to have your morning coffee, get settled at your desk, and select your favorite playlist first.

Once you’re settled in, avoid taking long breaks throughout the day. Instead, opt for a series of shorter, smaller breaks that will help you quickly decompress. Aim to have these breaks be about 10 minutes long. This can mean you get up and take a quick walk around the block, check social media for a few minutes, or chat with a colleague. If you take a longer break, it’ll take you longer to recharge and switch back into work mode, eating up your time.

We’re always more productive when we get a chance to focus on our strengths. Consider, what can you easily achieve and what’s best handled by someone else? Having a productive summer requires you to understand your limitations and time constraints so that you can delegate and outsource tasks to others. You’ll not only save time streamlining your to-do list, but you’ll find your productivity levels increase. Here’s more on how to delegate in a respectful manner.
