Productivity is an area of our lives that is important for our overall success yet is often forgotten about when we are setting goals. Which is why today I am going to be sharing both tips for setting productivity goals as well as a list of ideas for life changing productivity goals to set. The hope of these goals is that by setting them they will help you work on being more productive so you can have a better and more successful life!
That all being said, let’s jump into first talking about tips for setting productivity goals. Then keep scrolling for the list of ideas for productivity goals to set.
Tips for setting productivity goals:
Tip 1: Write your goals down. Actually setting these goals by writing them down is an essential step to making these goals a priority. And actually goals that you will work on! If you are just mentally thinking about goals and not making a list of your productivity goals then you probably won’t be making them enough of a priority.
Tip 2: Make an actual plan. Making a plan is a super important tip to follow. The saying “a goal without a plan is just a dream” is so true! So make sure that you are making plans for making your goals actually happen.
Tip 3: Don’t forget to have actionable steps. Make sure that every goal you set has actionable steps that you can know you are definitely taking.
Tip 4: Keep your goals visible. Keep your productivity goals list visible so that you can have daily motivation and inspiration to keep working on them. Try making it your screensaver on your phone or handwriting the list and putting it on your bathroom mirror so you see it every morning.
Tip 5: Be realistic! Goals are there to push and encourage you. But at the same time, you need to be realistic. If you set insane goals for yourself there is a chance you won’t hit many or any of the goals which can be deafeating. So set goals that are a stretch but also are within the range of being realistic.
Now that we have covered those tips and tricks for setting productivity goals let’s get into the list of ideas!
