10 Killer Routines To Improve Your Teacher Productivity

10 Killer Routines for Teacher Productivity

Killer routines are simple to implement but when people think of routines, they are often thinking about “being stuck in one”. A routine doesn’t have to be boring though so I named them killer routines.

Since the term daily routines implies doing the same actions repeatedly, it makes sense that people might view it negatively. People want excitement and spontaneity, not the “same ol, same ol”.


Killer routines prime you for success. They help you think, achieve and get stuff done. They make sure you get the most important stuff done first. You just need a little discipline, That’s where the routines help you.

Work smart and start using killer routines

A solid routine, when harnessed correctly, can propel you towards your goals. It might not be hair-raising excitement, but striving towards and reaching goals is far from boring.

The best part about these killer routines is that they don’t have to be massive changes in your life.


Killer Routines effect change

Since a routine is simply a set of repeated actions, it is more important to be consistent than monumental. It is the cumulative effects of killer routines that matter most – not the single action taken.

It is important because sometimes we can be intimidated by wholesale changes. Some people never really take a stab at meaningful success because the idea of change is too overwhelming.


Student daily routine

Our students need daily routines too because it helps them attain academically. For example research shows that daily study increases student’s memory but it must be in the day time. Students don’t like boring tasks but they do like repetitive routines.


Create small killer routines

If it’s good enough for our students then why not get ourselves organised? Start small, just tweaking your day a bit, and all of a sudden, you will notice your life is starting to take shape.

It doesn’t happen in a few days or a few weeks, but it does happen if you stay committed.
