How to Do Better and More Work in Less Time [Tips from 40+ World-Class Experts] - letsreachsuccess.com

One of the main differences between successful entrepreneurs and those just wishing to have a business and live a better life, is that the former do meaningful work and have enough time in a day to get everything done, but to also do anything else they feel like and find balance.

The latter, however, tend to perceive work as something negative and prefer to avoid it. So far, it has only cost them time and hasn’t given them much return on investment.

They have the wrong mindset. And it doesn’t come as a surprise that these people rarely live up to their potential, become self-employed, find joy in what they do, and become hard-working individuals who are also super effective.

But there are ways to do not only better and meaningful work, but to do more of it in less time.

That’s where productivity skills and time management hacks come in handy.

Over time, we can get better at how we manage the hours we’re given in a day, how focused we are when trying to work on something important, how we react to new, big projects and what steps we take first, how we manage other people, collaborate when working in a team, and eventually – what we get done, how good it is, and how we feel about the work as a result.

These are the things I’ve been improving over the last few years, and it turns our that they are essential for anything else we’re trying to do successfully in life.

Because when you do work that matters, you’ll feel satisfied and peaceful. When you’re productive, you won’t be wasting precious time and will have more of it for yourself. When you double your results, you’ll see progress sooner. And when you know how to prioritize and eliminate distractions, no new project or big to-do list will scare you as you’ll simply get to work on the first items and make sure you complete only the things that are related to your goals, and nothing else.

And because there’s way too much information on this online, it’s worth learning from the experts only.

The experts, in this case, are big names in different industries, owners of multi-billion dollar businesses, artists, managers of thousands of people, and just individuals who are impacting millions of lives, and who’ve been where we’re at now, but have overcome procrastination, doubts and overthinking, and who are now working faster and better than before. Which leads to 10x better work, of course.

And here’s a free resource that’s a collection of more than 30 productivity hacks from such world-class experts and include tips on how to squeeze an hour or more out of your day, how to do your work in half the time and energy.

The ebook is Work Smarter, Not Harder: 30+ Productivity Hacks to Get More and Better Work Done in Less Time

It’s created by David Burkus, a best-selling author, international speaker, associate professor of management at Oral Roberts University.

He specializes in organizational behavior, creativity and innovation, and strategic leadership, and has interviewed hundreds of professionals in these fields over the years.

He now distilled the best productivity secrets, techniques and lessons and turned them into an ebook that he’s giving for free.

4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Your Mental Health 21

4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Your Mental Health

While most people pay the most attention to their physical health and work hard to achieve a healthy body, they often overlook the potential mental health issues that may have been well tucked away.

Understanding and paying sufficient attention to your mental health issues is an action that should be prioritized in every situation. What could seem like the simplest mental health problem to you might actually be affecting your life in more ways that you can imagine.

Here are just a few reasons why you shouldn’t ignore the signs.

1. It Is Way More Common Than You Believe.

You might think that mental illness is not present in many situations but the truth is that almost everyone has or is facing such an issue.

In fact, one in five Americans suffers from some type of mental illness. The saddest part about this though, is that very few of them seek treatment.

The person affected by the illness can even be one of your family members. Sadly, symptoms are easy to hide and even people who are severely depressed can mask their health issues from their families and avoid getting help.

2. It Can Also Affect Your Physical Health.

How to Green up Your Morning Routine

It is known from a long time ago that the connection between the mind and the body is strong. Any sort of physical distress can have a huge effect on your capability to work or focus on things around you. Following this same rule, any sort of mental problem can easily affect your physical health too.

The first few things that a mental illness will affect are your mood, energy levels, sleep cycles, appetite and quite possibly your sex drive. Along with these problems and as a result of them, your immune system can also be affected and that can lead to more often colds and an overall impairment of your physical health.

People who face mental illnesses are often left unmotivated and drained of energy.

The illness blurs your mind so much that you have no energy left to function properly in your everyday life. Ask any person that has faced a major depression and they will tell you just how much they let themselves go and how they stopped caring about simple everyday things, such as brushing their teeth or taking a shower.

Physical symptoms won’t take long to appear and you will simply keep increasing your risk factor of a number of health problems such as heart disease or heart palpitations, insomnia and fatigue. It is very important that you ask for help if you feel such symptoms arising. Make sure that you consult a board-certified practitioner to be certain that a mental problem is not the cause of them.   

3. It Plays an Important Role in Your Success.

One of the most frequent symptoms of a mental illness is the lack of motivation. You just feel so tired of everything, you find that you are not interested in what others are doing and you just end up losing interest in things you used to love.

The lack of mental health can, therefore, play a huge role in your success. No matter if you are a college student, an employee or a working parent, you can easily lose sense of what’s important to you and hinder your success in whatever role you might have.

In whichever situation you might be, you will definitely need to be able to be creative and productive. Your success in your studies or your workplace might be your only source of stability and income.

An untreated mental illness can be the reason behind your reduced productivity, your lack of creativity and your overall negative attitude towards your work.

Keep in mind that a large number of homeless people are those who are suffering from a mental illness but sadly left it untreated.

Looking for help and letting the mental health professionals guide you can take a lot of weight off your shoulders. It can help you see things from a different perspective and give you the courage and motivation you need to get back on track and find yourself again.

4. It Can Affect Your Relationship with Your Peers.

Most people who face a mental illness find themselves intimidated by social situations. Even spending time with friends or family can seem like a very tiring or pointless task and they will often opt out of it. It is important to remember that this does not apply only to depressed people, as many might think, but to a large area of mental issues.

Anxiety disorders can alienate a person from their circle because of the constant fear of something going wrong, of someone not liking them or of an overall new situation. It is very common for the solution to your mental health issue to be holding the key to you getting back your behavioral health.

Mental illness can also affect your relationship with your family.

Apart from losing contact with people you probably care about, you might even end up harming them more than you think. It is not rare to see a person struggle both financially but also emotionally when it comes to helping family members that are battling mental illness.

Another very important reason to not take your mental health lightly is for the sake of your children. It is very often reported that children of people who struggle with a mental illness are abused or neglected. That can play a huge role in their lives and affect their entire lives, from childhood to adulthood.

Make Your Mental Health an Everyday Goal!

There are many places to turn to for help. The National Alliance on Mental Illness, otherwise known as NAMI, can be a great place to start. Through it, you can find a suitable medical center that will provide you with the suitable health services to help you regain your mental health.

It is important that you are not ashamed of your personal struggles or mental issues. Everything is part of the human nature and the fact that there are so many people available to help comes to show just how human this situation is and how much attention we, as a society, should be paying to this important issue.
