How to be Super Productive at Work?
Do you always ponder how to live a happy life without getting distracted and getting best productivity at work? According to a scientific research, we live in an age of dramatic distraction. 2.1 hours in a day is spent in distraction. Research confirms that every 11 minutes we get distracted from the valuable work we are doing and it takes at least 25 minutes to refocus back to that work. Many people believe that they can be most productive by multi tasking, however, this is wrong. Doing multitasking you can get busy but you cannot utilize your full potential and cannot get the full productivity at work.
To waste your time is to waste your talent and potential which leads to a tough career growth. Being talented is one thing. You may have the best of skills in the world, you may have a lot of experience to tackle tough situation but if you cannot manage the time properly your productivity at work will exponentially decline.
On the contrary, successful people have trained their brain to focus on their project for an extended period of time. The successful people know how to live a happy life. Good news is that any person can get this knowledge for happy life. The science has rejected the fact that harder we work the more successful we will be. It confirms that if one works too hard that decreases our productivity in every possible way, making us feel tired, frustrated and sometimes lead us to quit from the valuable work we do. Hard work should be followed by proper execution and proper time management.
