4 Quick Fixes For Peak Networking & Productivity


You're always on the go. 

If you're like most professionals, you have to jot info down on a calendar in order to remember it and are voraciously looking for more time in each day. To make sure that you're not forgetting the details while nailing down the major points, there are some quick hacks that will keep your skills sharp and your brand strong. 

Check out these four quick fixes for peak networking and productiveness, so that you can begin seeing a snowball effect on your success. 

1. Audit Your Social Media Info Every Couple of Weeks

You likely know that social media is huge these days, but did you know specifically that a whopping 97 percent of people between the ages of 16 and 64 report logging into a social media account within the last month?

Because of this, continuously embracing social media can be a gamechanger for your brand and networking. However, it can be tough to build the discipline to handle this part of your career. 

To take a baby step that compounds and continuously helps you commit to giving a sweeping, honest audit of all your social media accounts every couple of weeks, or twice a month. During these audits, consider your profile picture and layout, make sure your descriptions accurately reflect where you are right now and make sure you're reaching out to the proper networks. 

This is also a great time to figure out which social media outlets are best for you professionally. One professional might find success on LinkedIn, while SnapChat might be best for someone else. 

2. Adopt Rules To Cut Out Distraction

Psychologists are beginning to argue with increasing evidence that multitasking is horrible for your productivity. 

Couple this problem with decision fatigue, and it can be difficult to string together any sort of work discipline. Cut out the distractions as much as you can, and make sure that you're creating lists and hitting your goals one at a time. 

What this does is builds some momentum for you, allowing you to build traction for the rest of your day, week and month. 

3. Add Something Fitness Related To Your Morning Routine

Your brain, body, and spirit need to be on one accord if you want to be a high-level professional.

To make sure that this happens, master your mornings by getting the blood pumping as early as possible. More than anything, pumping good endorphins into your body with a workout will allow you to always have energy, retain mental focus and defeat the lulls in your day that eat away at your productivity. 

You'll stroll into the office with high spirits and will be better able to build the disciplines that matter when you make your mornings more active and healthy. 

4. Commit To At Least One Weekly Networking Activity

Regardless of your industry, you only grow and expand by meeting other people. This is true both in terms of business opportunities and professional motivation and accountability. 

To continuously grow your network, make sure that you're keeping networking as a focus and priority. No matter where you live, you should be able to find professional mixers or seminars on a regular basis that shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg, or anything at all. 

Even if you set a goal to hand out five business cards in person, it's a bigger win for your networking potential than if you chose not to do it. 

Consider these four tips so that you're shoring up the details of your professional life.
