There are so many great productivity strategies out there, sometimes it’s tempting to try many of them at once. However, for more effective results, try one tip at a time.
When you’re motivated to get organised, you might come across a handful of tips that sound appealing and find yourself ready to try them all. But this can lead to burnout, The Muse explains:
It’s already difficult to switch up a pattern, so changing multiple methods at once is near impossible. Instead, pick just one idea to try out. Once it’s successfully integrated into your workflow, then you can add another.
This is also useful because it helps you see what’s actually working. If you try five tips at once, and your work improves, it can be difficult to pinpoint which of those tips worked best. Try one at a time and compare how it works with your current workflow. This gives you a better idea of your results.
