The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Being More Productive

3

It seems like something distant we say to ourselves from time to time, “I need to be more productive.” Oftentimes when we’re faced with a myriad of tasks to complete all at once, we tend to lose motivation and our productivity sinks. There are ways to counteract this line of thinking and get on the right track to be more organized, productive, and have our days be more manageable.

Create Great Work Habits

There are probably different areas of your work day that could vastly improve with the help of a few useful work habits. Do you easily get distracted or have a hard time focusing on one thing at a time? Work on a project for 5 minutes straight and don’t allow yourself any distractions, then after 5 minutes allow for a small distraction. Continue to gradually add time to the 5 minutes until you’re working an hour straight with no distraction.

Are you having trouble staying organized? Come up with a calendar system that works for you. Whether it’s paper or computer-based, a calendar that is regularly updated is going to keep you on track with tasks that need to be completed.

Do you have difficulty getting work done on time? Get up early on Monday morning and create a list of priorities for the week in order of importance. Every time a priority is completed, check it off the list. Revise your list of priorities, always focusing on the most time-sensitive tasks first.

Make the Most of Your Day

Tackle projects that are the most difficult at the start of your day. The mornings are when most of us feel most energized and this is when large projects should be addressed. Instead of checking your emails, with the exception of pressing issues, go to work on something you’ve been putting off or chip away at a big project. Even if you aren’t able to complete it all by lunchtime, it will be a relief that it was at least worked on.

Mornings can be unbearable for most people, even entrepreneurs. Feel empowered every morning by waking up 2 hours or more before you need to leave for work. Don’t give yourself the option to sleep in, however persuading it may be. Wake up early and get started on your day while many are still in bed. In the early morning hours, you’re free to check your emails, come up with your priority list for the day, check the news, drink some coffee, or do something on your to-do list. If rushing around in the morning is something you deal with often, consider taking charge of your morning and make the most of it.

PBS SA Capital Group CEO and Portland Marine Group of Companies president Alexander Christodoulakis, through PBS SA, provides alternative asset management and full range of financial and corporate management services. Once of the few successful product-services is his transportation sector ship financing which provides steadily ship asset growth.

Outside of his very busy schedule and his professional undertakings, Alexander Christodoulakis pursues a personal interest in quantum physics.

Though some consider it arcane, quantum physics has actually resulted in numerous practical applications through the years. A number of technological advancements, ranging from smartphones to magnetic resonance imaging, have been made possible through quantum physics, and the list continues to grow.

In a recent study by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, scientists revealed that quantum physics may present solutions to some of the current problems in online security. Thanks to advances in photon manipulation, scientists have been able to use “teleportation” in order to allow for encrypted messaging that will not be susceptible to hacking. The unique reactions observed in these photons can result in impenetrable security measures.

This discovery comes on the heels of a series of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) cyber attacks that affected a number of sites, including Twitter, Spotify, HBO, Reddit, and the New York Times. This has been described by some online trackers as an initial strike in what could possibly be the largest battle of the Internet age.
