Productivity is a compers best friend. We’re all busy and have limited resources available to us and our time is valuable. So here are a few of my top productivity tips you need to know and help you enter even more competitions:
Batch your competitions
Batching competitions will save you so much time in the long run! Doing the same type of competitions over and over makes you better at them which save you time. For example if you entered 20 online competitions in one go rather than chop and change between competitions, each entry will take you less time than the one before. Same rule applies for 25 Word or less competitions, the more you attempt and enter, the better you get, saving you more time each time. Make batching your new rule and be a comping machine!
We are the most distracted generation of all time. Do try and resist all distractions like visiting forums and Social Media. If you want to be productive you have to avoid all unimportant tasks when its ‘your time’ and winning is an important task so avoid all distractions.
Beat overwhelm with trigger song
If you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain unmotivated, train your brain to get prepared with a trigger song. The song can be anything you want but make sure it is a positive and uplifting song. When your comping time is starting, play the song and soon your brain will know it’s that time again. You’ll be more productive and motivated than ever before.
Enter anywhere and everywhere
Instead of sitting back on the tram, train or bus and listening to music why not enter some competitions? You could batch all your easy competitions and save them for you commute. Train yourself to use it as a release after work and daydreaming exercise in the morning and before you know it, at the end of the month you will be on track with very little effort.
Being productive doesn’t have to mean exhausting yourself and pulling your hair out while trying to win as many prizes as possible. With a few simple steps you can be productive and tip the odds in your favour!
