Five Things That Really Productive People Do

Time is your most valuable asset and you should use it wisely. Staying productive and being concentrated on everything that is happening in your company, when there are so many distractions around you, can be very difficult, but there is no need to worry. There are some things that ultra productive people do differently and here you can find five tips that will help you work more effectively.

Less talk, more action

“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”  Bruce Lee

Highly productive people, who manage to complete all of their tasks in time, spend less time on re-thinking every “if” and more time on doing the actual work. If you want to use your time wisely, get to “doing” and you will be surprised how much you can accomplish.

They stay focused

“Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can’t afford to lose.”

Thomas Edison

Really productive people know how to avoid distractions and how to keep their focus on the work  that they are doing at the moment. They respect the power and value of time, which is the reason why they don’t let small distractions to waste their time.

Avoid multitasking

“You can do two things at once, but you can’t focus effectively on two things at once.” Gary Keller

Many people believe that multitasking is working, but the most successful people know that it is actually not. You can do ten things at the same time, but, in the end,  will they be effectively done? It is better to do one thing at a time and do it well, then to do five things at the same time and do them badly.


“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”

Stephen R. Covey

Highly productive people always concentrate on the important work and know how to organize their schedules in order to focus on what is important, not on what is urgent.


“I trust the people who are working with me. I delegate.” Mario Draghi

Great leaders trust their team members and know how to delegate tasks and responsibility to the them. Highly effective people always use the power of delegating in order to accomplish important tasks on time and with better quality.
