5 Productivity Tips to Motivate You Everyday

Make Goals

Setting clear goals is crucial for maintaining focus and motivation. Rather than vague aspirations, create specific and actionable goals that propel you forward. For instance, instead of saying, “I want to grow my Instagram follower count,” reframe it as, “I will comment on five new accounts every week to increase my account awareness.” This specific goal provides a measurable milestone and keeps you accountable within a defined timeframe.

Make To-Do Lists

To-do lists are invaluable tools for organizing your tasks and keeping track of priorities. Begin each day by creating a list of essential tasks that need to be completed. If there are unfinished tasks at the end of the day, transfer them to the next day’s list. Remember, if a task cannot be completed within a reasonable timeframe, evaluate its importance and consider delegating it or removing it from your list. Embrace the power of letting go!


Batch processing is a game-changer for maximizing productivity. It involves grouping similar tasks together and completing them in one dedicated session. For example, if you have multiple photos to edit, batch edit them in one sitting to streamline the process. Similarly, if you have several blog posts to write, dedicate a specific block of time to batch write them. Social media scheduling can also be batched using popular tools like Planoly, Hootsuite, or Plann. By focusing on one type of task at a time, you’ll minimize context switching and work more efficiently.

Do you have a lot of social media posts to schedule? Batch schedule. You can schedule your social media calendar ahead of time with many popular tools such as Planoly, Hootsuite, or Plann. They have free options available to help you do this.

Wake Up Early

While not everyone is naturally inclined to be a morning person, waking up early can provide a significant productivity boost. By giving yourself extra time in the day, you can accomplish more on your to-do list. Additionally, starting your day early allows you to tackle tasks before external distractions arise. Whether it’s hitting the gym, running errands, or focusing on important work tasks, the early morning hours provide a precious window of uninterrupted productivity.

I am not a morning person – at all. At some point in my life I decided that I wanted to go to the gym, but where am I going to fit that into my schedule? I force myself to wakeup at 5:30 in the morning to make to my 6:15 a.m. class. If I didn’t get up early, I would never workout. I have no motivation after 5 p.m. to raise my heart rate.

This applies to other tasks on my to-do list, too. Since the gym is out of the way already, I might have time to run an errand before I get to work. or I might have time to post about today’s hashtag holiday.

By giving yourself more time in the day, you can accomplish so much more on your to-do list. Which will help you reach your goals. And what’s better than that?

Check Emails Last

Emails can easily become a time-consuming distraction, pulling your focus away from essential tasks. Make it a habit to prioritize your own work before diving into your inbox. Begin your day by working on your tasks and progress toward your goals. Once you’re in a good place with your own tasks, allocate specific time for checking and responding to emails. This approach ensures that your work remains the priority, and you’re not constantly reacting to others’ requests.

I am the worst with this. I always keep my email open when I’m working. Email is a complete time-suck because you’re usually answering someone else’s requests – instead of focusing on your to-do list and overall goals.

Take your time each morning. Start working on your tasks first. Once you’re in a good place on your own tasks, go ahead and check your emails.

The point of this is to make your work a priority first by check your emails last.


By implementing these five productivity tips—making goals, creating to-do lists, batching tasks, waking up early, and checking emails last—you can significantly enhance your efficiency and accomplish more each day. Remember, productivity is a journey, and it’s important to find what works best for you. Embrace these strategies, adapt them to your routine, and watch as your productivity soars.
