One of the best ways to stay productive is to remind yourself to stay productive on a daily basis. I don’t mean simply saying to yourself, “Remember to be productive!” I’m talking about specifics. Create a list of mantras that you can keep in mind everyday, each one pertaining to a specific aspect of productivity. These will serve as simple “best-practice” reminders that will help keep you on track.
Fast Company published an article with seven great examples of productivity mantras. Two of my favorites are: “Achieve small goals every day,” and “More is not indicative of better.” I recommend reading the full article for the rest of the list and the explanation of each mantra. And if you’re inspired, consider making your own personal mantra list!
