  1. Visualize.
    Thinking? That’s it?! Visualizing may seem silly, but it’s not. The world’s top athletes use visualization to help them perform their best, and you can use this technique too. Learn more about how visualizing can help your career.
  2. Give your goal the respect it deserves.
    One of your goals may be to pick up a new hobby like an instrument or a new language. It’s easy to let these commitments fall to the wayside. But did you know that hobbies can actually help your career? You’ll be less likely to quit your goals when you realize just how good they are for you.
  3. Get rid of the distractions.
    If you’re often saying, “There’s never enough time!” or “I’m busy!” think about how you really spend your time. As the saying goes, if you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. That may mean giving up TV time every night, logging out of Facebook, or avoiding one of these popular productivity killers.
  4. Get quality sleep.
    You can’t get through the work day confidently and efficiently if you’re tired. There are many things you can do to improve your energy during the day but it all starts with a good night’s sleep. Cutting out caffeine in the afternoon and exercising daily are just two tips that will help you fall asleep.
  5. Live smarter.
    There are many ways to work smarter, not harder from to-do lists to goal-setting. Delegating is also a key strategy for working efficiently. Revisit our list of 10 ways to delegate at home and at work, and you may just find a few ways to give yourself a bit more time to focus on your priorities.
