“To have a successful career, you have to approach it as an entrepreneur, even if you are working for someone else. Your career is your own private business. You have to market yourself and your abilities and knowledge just as you would a product or service.” ~ Earl G. Graves Sr.
Technology is constantly changing, and it is easy to get caught up in it. Once you’re sucked into his wormhole, it is difficult to maintain productivity at work and at home. However, it isn’t impossible to get and stay productive in the digital world.
Below we explore ways you can be productive in the digital era.
Use Social Media to Your Advantage
Technology and social media programs are evolving, and companies are using social media to advertise to their customers or potential clients. Whenever I look at something on the Internet or even click on an ad in Facebook, more companies offering those services show up not only as ads in Google but also ads on Facebook. Caution: Be careful not to fall into the rabbit hole.
Limit Internet Distractions
While you’re working, it has become acceptable to keep your social media sites running in the background. The average American spends around 1300 hours on social media per year. That may not seem like a lot but when those hours are used during work time, they can add up.
Maintain a Solid Routine
Making and following a solid routine can be effective at limiting excessive social media use. Incorporate a designated time to check social media. Try to limit it to scheduled break times or after completing important tasks. You’ll have something to look forward to. It will also make finishing the hard cumbersome tasks less intimidating.
Digitize To-Do Lists
Another important component to being productive in the digital era is to embrace technology. It seems to be here forever so using apps and programs available to you is key. Rather than having several different notebooks or other products to keep track of various aspects of your life, compile it all into one spreadsheet or app.
Technology isn’t the enemy of productivity. Embrace what’s out there and learn how to utilize it in a way that caters to productivity and your goals.
