Do you like working in the morning, in the afternoon, or late into the night? Maybe you like doing it after your day job, right when you get back home. Whatever your preferred work schedule, here is another rule of thumb to keep in mind to maximise your productivity. The rule is to work on the most challenging small business ideas first.
Have a look at your to-do list. I’m sure it’s loaded with tasks you must finish. If you can recall the article on prioritising, an important thing is to identify the most important tasks to get done right away. You may identify two, three, or even more tasks that fit into this category.
Amongst the many important tasks, which one should you do first then?
Figuring out the answer to that may be another chore. True, prioritisation may have eased up your planning phase; however, having multiple important tasks can catch you off guard again.
Finding out the one task you must work on first has thus become a chore. But it does not have to be if you know this extra trick.
Ask yourself which task is the most challenging.
Which one will take the most time to complete? Which will require the most creative energy or brainpower? Also, what is that one task you would rather not do before the day ends, when you’re already feeling drained?
Those questions will lead you to that one specific task you have to accomplish first. Once you’ve zeroed in on it, focus on that task completely until it’s done.
This takes advantage of your brain’s peak performance level.
Each day, when you are just getting started working on your online business startup, you are at your most creative and productive state. Your mind is sharpest at this point in time, and you are able to solve problems a lot more easily. Your mind is in the best condition to tackle difficult projects. Taking advantage of your heightened mental state, you can finish those challenging tasks with flying colours.
