5 Ways You Can Stay Productive & Focused All Week

I work a full-time job AND I am a full-time content creator. Yes, it’s quite exhausting, but it’s doable mainly because I keep myself as productive and focused as possible during the week. Which, might I add, is very difficult to do with diagnosed ADHD.

So how do I do it? Well, come on in, my friends! It’s your boy Ky, and today I’m going to walk you through the five ways I stay productive and focused during the week. (Shhh… this is between me and you, don’t tell anybody.)

5 Ways You Can Stay Productive & Focused All Week The Vibe With Ky Podcast

1 – I Prioritize Working Through My Most Productive Hours

When I don’t prioritize in an effective manner, I end up wasting so much time, and even worse, energy. Every weekend, I put together a plan for how I am going to tackle the upcoming week. This way it is way easier for me to optimize my time and my energy levels.

2 – I Learned The Importance of the Word “No”

One of the biggest issues I struggle with is saying “Yes” or “Sure thing” or “No problem” whenever someone asks me to do something. I accept all of these tasks, and then all of a sudden, it feels like I am drowning in work. I feel overwhelmed and hopeless.

Sound familiar? I’m sure it does! This is why I am focusing a lot of attention on learning how to effectively use the word “No” to my advantage when it comes to staying productive.

3 – I Try To Start Tasks Early

All throughout high school and college, I learned that I sometimes work better when I procrastinate. While I survived those years, as I get older, that mindset has become a lot less ideal for me.

So today, I try to start tasks and projects a little bit earlier than I used to. This allows me enough time to focus on it, without feeling the pressure, especially if my ADHD grabs a hold of me that day.

4 – I Try To Stay Flexible

While I do plan everything out as much as I can, I’ve also learned that quite often, things simply don’t go according to the plan. I have to stay ready for that.

Being productive also means going where the tide takes you. I used to lose so much focus when I got concerned that my plan wasn’t working out. Now I try to use it to my advantage.

5 – I Try Not To Multitask

Multitasking, for me at least, is SO TEMPTING. But it can also be VERY dangerous. So I ultimately try to avoid it if I can.

The American Psychological Association did a study that showed that multitasking can actually make you LESS productive. The study noted that participants who constantly were switching from one task to another, actually LOST productivity time.

Hey… You Got This!

These are just a few things that work for me that I am happy I got to share with you! It’s okay, throw away the ones that don’t work for you, especially if they don’t fit your lifestyle.

This is only the beginning when it comes to staying productive during the week. At the end of the day, you taking the time to read this means that focus and productivity are things that mean something important to you. The first step, is a very important one. You got this. 🙂

Much love. Good Vibes.
