Enjoy this short post of the day.

“Today’s technological gadgets can be both good and bad news. They can definitely simplify our lives but they can also be very distracting. As an example of how they can help, there are money-management apps available for smart phones that will allow you to keep track of your investments, track your spending, create and stick to a budget, and balance your checking account. On the downside, these phones can lessen your productivity, as there are all those e-mails that keep pouring in, calls to answer and calendars to keep up to date. Plus, there’s always the temptation to tweet, text or write e-mails during meetings.

Here are six suggestions for what you could do to increase your job performance and productivity.”

Worst first

If you have a huge project, the idea is to chip away at it consistently. If you separate the big project into smaller projects with individual deadlines, you can feel as if your getting a small win every day. This can help you keep yourself on track and motivated.

Write it all down

Any time a to-do or idea occurs to you, write it down immediately. You may be having so many back-to-back meetings that you tend to forget the critical thoughts and ideas that you’ve had throughout the day.

Take a break

While many people don’t think of this, one of the tenants of better productivity is to make time to do something you actually enjoy. You might read industry- or sports-related articles, do yoga, take an exercise class or leave just a little bit early so you can eat dinner with your family. It’s just really important to make time to recharge so that you’re ready to work on your to-do list again tomorrow.

Find a system

These tips may help but the most important thing is to find and stick to a system that works for you. Also, always remember that you should be fully engaged in whatever it is that you’re doing, whether it’s a client meeting, a project or a conference call.

If you can get more work done, you can get noticed, get promoted and make more money. Use these tools to help you get more productive and becoming a more valuable worker for your employer or your own business.
