Award Winning CEO, Eric Martin of Florida Business Exclusively reveals His Productivity Secrets
With offices in 7 states across the US, CEO at direct sales and marketing specialist, Florida Business Consulting understands the importance of achieving maximum productivity, and the award-winning entrepreneur has exclusively revealed his productivity hacks.
The Miami-based marketing and sales expert believes that attaining maximum productivity is easy if people follow these simple steps.
1.Wake up earlier
There is a common saying “the early bird catches the worm”. Mr Martin urges people to wake up at least one hour earlier. That extra sixty minutes allows time to mentally and physically prepare for the day ahead and put plans in place to maximise results.
2.Have a morning ritual
Evening rituals are a common habit for entrepreneurs. However, Mr Martin believes that people need to adopt a morning ritual too. According to experts, people’s self-control is at it’s highest during the small hours of the morning. “Every morning, write out what you want to achieve that day and stick to it!” said Mr Martin.
3.Take cold showers
Cold water has been proven to help blood rush to the areas of the brain that controls mood. The happy neurotransmitters- increase mental alertness and decreasing fatigue and stress.
Breakfast is commonly referred to as the most important meal of the day, and that’s because our bodies need refuelling.
5.Do your most challenging task first
New York Times best-selling author, Dan Ariely, explains that we have peak productivity about 2 hours after waking termed as the ‘magic hours’. Mr Martin encourages people to capitalize on that window and tackle the most challenging task first.
6. Use the 2-minute rule
Mr Martin believes that if a task only takes 2 minutes to complete, people should act on it straight away instead of doing it later. By tackling the small tasks right away, it leaves time for the more complex ones.
7. Budget your time
Mr Martin argues that time-budgeting increases productivity. Having a time limit instils a sense of urgency and will prevent procrastination.
Mr Martin is urging aspiring professionals to implement these hacks to boost their productivity and accelerate their success.
