Increasing Productivity at Home

Many people tend to associate productivity with the workplace. It’s fair to say that staying productive at work is often a top priority. Yet, being productive at home is also important for your family life and your mental well-being. An unproductive home life leads to extra stress, dissatisfaction and stagnation.

Everyone has a host of tasks and responsibilities that need to be tackled in the home. It can seem virtually impossible to juggle them while still having enough quality time for yourself and your family. Yet, by simply utilizing a few productivity techniques, you’ll revolutionize your home life.

Many of the ideas that we’ve already covered in this book can be applied at home as well as work. Delegation isn’t something reserved only for colleagues. You can delegate tasks to family members too. Anyone can put laundry in the washing machine. Anyone can clear the table after a meal or take out the garbage. Planning your day is just as valid when you’re at home. You can even apply the “Eat the Frog” and “80/20” rules in the home environment. However, there are a couple of additional productivity techniques you can add at home to make yourself more productive.  

Create an Enjoyable Environment 

When you’re at home, you’re in your own space. That means you have the freedom to create an environment conducive to productivity. At work, you probably have limited control over your surroundings. There are rules and regulations that must be followed. At home, those rules are your own. That means you can think about how you can create the best space for you to stay productive.

One way to make a productive environment at home is listening to the right kind of music while you work. We’ve already said that distractions ought to be avoided. However, at home, background music can often improve focus. The key is to choose the optimal music for you. 

It’s always wise to avoid any music with vocals. Even if you don’t mean to, you usually end up listening to the words. This is distracting and draws focus away from the task you’re working on.

  1. Instead, choose instrumental tracks that are upbeat. Remember though, listen but don’t participate. If you’re drumming, dancing or tapping your feet while you listen, it’s the wrong music for you. The goal is to listen to something soothing, not stimulating.

Celebrate and Reward Your Achievements 

In the workplace, it’s becoming more common to celebrate and reward achievements. Unfortunately, we usually fail to do the same at home. 

It’s vital to take the time to congratulate yourself whenever you have a productive day. When you accomplish a task, you need to acknowledge your success. Only through celebration and reward will you retain motivation to carry on trying and striving towards your goals. 

Reflect on every day to determine what worked for you and what failed. Don’t feel bad about the things that didn’t work out. Instead, identify why they went wrong. How could you change things next time? Reflection will boost your future productivity in the long run.

If you dwell for too long on the things that failed, you end up overlooking what went well. Make sure you give yourself full credit for those successes. Humans naturally seek out rewards. Each time you celebrate a success, you’re rewarding yourself. This gives you increased motivation in the future. 

You’ll also begin to develop habits and rituals that will make you more productive in the future. You’ll be programming your mind to become more successful. You’ll also forge a more positive relationship with yourself. This gives you greater confidence which, in turn, makes you more likely to be more productive.

How can you celebrate your achievements?

  • Keep your own victory log that you can look back on.
  • Do something that you love but hardly ever have time to
  • Buy a treat for
  • Take some me-time.

When you reward your own achievements, even at home, you’ll increase your productivity in the future. You’ll also be more motivated to achieve your personal best.  

These chapters should have given you all the information you need to triple your productivity. Whether in the home or in the workplace, these simple measures will help you get more done in less time. 

Thinking smarter means working smarter. Working smarter means being more effective. Being more effective means you’ll have more leisure time. More leisure time means less stress and greater positivity in your life. Therefore, tripling your productivity won’t just make you more successful, it’ll make you happier too.

Follow the advice in this book, and you’ll find it easier than you imagined to achieve your personal best.
