Every year, World Productivity Day is celebrated on June 20. On this day, people get together to discuss the efforts that we need to make to increase productivity, the importance of not running in the rat race and having a niche of our own and how to be successful.
On this day, people start the celebrations by thanking the tools that help in enhancing productivity. Then they get back to their work and focus on being more productive. In order to do so, they often need to cut down the waste, and increase the hours of work and be more innovative.
Ways to improve productivity:
Having a routine: Knowing how the day will turn out and having it planned, hour by hour helps in improving productivity and planning the time for being more creative.
Breaks: productive people understand the need of having a proper work and life balance and they believe in not burning themselves out with more work. They go for frequent breaks and vacations and come back with a fresh mind to work.
Procrastination: Unproductive people believe in pushing deadlines of tasks that they consider are difficult. This further makes them more unproductive. Productive people, on the other hand, go headfirst into difficult tasks and find innovative solutions.
