5 ways to improve personal productivity

Posted on: May 11, 2011

“I know what I have to do but I don’t know how to organize myself”

“Only 24 hours! I wish I had more”. “This is too much. I can’t handle it all”

Does this sound familiar? Generally, people have much to do in lesser time. We all need to increase productivity to achieve better & more results. Here are five ways to improve personal productivity:

1. Law of HPO

Law of HPO says: Use a paper, a document, an email, a fax or any letter only once and not again. Once you have reviewed a paper or email, complete your task and don’t review it again. It happens that we mark our emails to read them later. That ‘later’ may never come!

HPO stands for: Handle Paper Once.

2. Practice UGF

We generally execute ‘easier’ tasks first and less easier next. Practising UGF will improve your productivity. UGF stands for: Ugliest Task First!

Hence, try this: Eat that Frog – Do the ugliest task first and see the magic of increased productivity. Here is a post on setting priorities: http://wisdomfrombooks.com/?p=713

3. Have a BUS

I am not advising you to buy a BUS but you need to have a BUS system i.e. a back up system. Have you ever lost a mobile phone or have suffered computer crash or some unfortunate incident whereby you have lost the data?
