You know what Productivity is a trait that we need to endeavor that gives you the ability to become resilient. In today's life, we are not paying more attention to this trait which plays a vital role in order to have a happy lifestyle.

Being productive is an art, which could be learned from experience because today's generation lives their life in virtual reality which is vague and ambiguous they happy to live life virtually by creating a virtual reality in their dreams and start living in this virtual environment. But this thinking is harmful to them which creates a huge difference between actual reality and virtual reality.

Here are 10 effective habits that will help you to become more productive.

1. Note Down Everyday Tasks

In order to practically implement today’s tasks, you need to note them down and keep these written tasks to the place where you visit frequently. This activity helps you to stay focus, let down all your distractions, and give you a measurable milestone.

Writing down important points or tasks that are important while will give you some satisfaction that these are the daily tasks that I need to perform and out of them how many of them I have achieved.

Say yourself after completion of every task that “I can do it”.

2. Prioritising your Tasks

Prioritizing the daily written tasks is a key ingredient to become productive. Prioritizing or we can say that doing the tasks that are complex or doing the tasks that are simple, it all depends on person to person.

Because there are people who are able to solve complex problems while having a fresh mindset, so if you are in this category then you can give the first priority to the complex tasks and then can do less complex or easy tasks.

If you are the type of person that becomes impatient while solving complex problems in the first place then, you should priorities easy tasks first, and when you see that easy tasks will give you some confidence then start with the complex tasks or problems, this will save your time and make you more productive.

3. Use the Learners Approach, Don't Be Judgemental

Blaming someone else in life is very easy. When something goes wrong when you doing your tasks, what's your first reaction? Your reaction and approach towards your reaction will define that you are productive or not.

Reaction 1: If you are asking whose fault it was?

Reaction 2: Is this a useful mistake?

If you follow Reaction 1, then you are more common because who lets people down and keep on blaming someone else, which gives you satisfaction for not being accountable for the situation.

If you follow Reaction 2, then it shows that you are in a productive stage and become more resilient day by day. Being accountable for the situation is a personal trait that not everyone is having. There is no failure, either you learn or you win the situation.

4. Don't Afraid to become Emotional Weak

In order to be productive, you need to handle the emotional side. Productive and resilient people are stronger and better to handle relationships and a person is become emotionally strong not only from others advice but by emotionally engage with others.

Be around with people who are always with you in tough times. They will give you inner strength and moral support to push you to move on.

As a writer or an educator, I have also felt low sometimes with bad comments or with fewer views. But one thing that makes me productive is that I never give up to give quality content to my people. I figure all possible ways to satisfy my people either to change strategy or give them all possible explanations. It doesn't matter how much time it will take I am always there for them.

To become more Productive you need to add this attitude to your daily life.

They help and be a supporter in there struggle too because it is very easy to motivate and support others when you are leading your life comfortably, but difficult to support other in tough and hard time.

By building the relationships that will help you in future crisis as well as its human nature that human always remembers persons who left them in their miseries and the people who supported in their difficult times.

No matter that person will help you in the future or not when you help your family or friends it will give you the strength to be productive.

Whenever you face rejection or be disturbed or bog down with failure just try to laugh. I speak for myself, I most often want to cry or yell at the situation. Productive People find crying a negative temptation, but instead of giving in, they find humor in the situation.

From a physiological perspective try to bounce back from adversity, but the real habit is just learning to laugh even when things aren't working well.

Whenever you face a hard time don't let your consciousness go in vain. Lot’s of us lose mentality. Productive individuals view difficulties and every set back in their own right, no matter what they gain or lose.

One study shows that getting mentally sick led people to miseries and cause serious health issues. It's ok if you are failing continuously, have faith that one day your circumstances will change and you keep yourself motivated and focused.

Productive people keep themselves mentally strong so that goal statement is always active. Keep reading motivational books of successful people, so that you can able to relate your situation with them.

9. Learn to Accept Rejection

Rejection plays a vital role for productive people. Sometimes people worried about being rejected. They lose hope and give reasons for being rejected. Sometimes taking a big decision may give you doubt or worry of being rejected.
