5 Ways to Be More Productive In Your 24 Hour Day

(Before It's News)

Do you ever wonder why some people can get so much more done in 24 hours than you? Or how is it that Elon Musk is able to seemingly run three companies (Tesla, SpaceX, and Solar City) and we can barely find time to get to five things on our to do list in the same allotted time? The secret to all of this is in your approach

1) Be selective with where you spend your time. 
Those who are ultra successful limit the number of tasks they take on. They are looking for the biggest bang for their buck. Basically, tasks that will help them learn something new or seeking to take on the next challenge. If you are doing the same tasks over and over again with few new challenges, you aren’t going to learn. If you don’t learn then you’ll be stuck in the same place you are right now. 
 2) Shoot for the stars but set up your micro goals. 

When you set a goal, you do so because you haven’t accomplished such a goal before. Otherwise why would you even bother setting that goal? Since it is something you haven’t done before, it is important for you to break down your goals into micro goals that are specific, measurable, achievable and realistic. In other words, come up with an action plan. If you do that, then the minute you get started on a task, you’ll know what needs to be done. There is no waiting or being wishy washy when you come up with micro goals. So remember, be specific with the baby steps you need to take to reach your goal.  
3) Run narrations and visuals in your head
Top performing athletes envision success on the field prior to stepping into it. Close your eyes and picture yourself going through the tasks to reach your final goal. Often times, if you can see it in your head and think out the steps for reaching the goal, you’ll have a greater chance of succeeding.    
4) Train yourself to be comfortable with the unknown 

In order to grow you must face your fears. Just as the saying goes, to get what you you’ve never had, you must do what you’ve never done before. Successful people find ways to get outside of their comfort zone and be comfortable with being outside of their comfort zone. How you do that is by being more confident and self-assured in yourself. So that no matter what the situation is you are confident enough in your ability to figure out what needs to be done and how you should properly react. Having a hard time doing that? Well fake it until you become it
5) Follow your inner compass 

Everyone’s path in life is different and unique in itself. What may be good for your friend may not be the right fit for you. Trust in yourself and follow what you truly believe. Make your own decisions. Just because someone has been noted to be an expert in the field does not mean he or she can not be wrong. Come to your own conclusions and forget about following the crowd.
