If you struggle with being productive at work because there are too many things to distract you, or you suffer from chronic disorganization, it’s time that changed right now. You have the power to turn things around by learning some tricks that increase your efficiency. Instead of working harder, you’ll start working smarter which benefits you by reducing stress levels, allowing you to take on additional responsibilities, and receive higher marks on your employee performance review.
Here are some tips that help you be more productive at work:
• Focus on a single task. Rather than multi-task, experts state that it is much better to focus on one single task and complete it before moving on to something else. You’re able to give the task your undivided attention which means that you’re less likely to make an error on it.
• Physically block distractions using your web browser. If your workplace doesn’t restrict internet access but you know it will slow down your day, add your own blockers using browser extensions. Google Chrome offers a variety of options to choose from that make it so you can’t access email, social media accounts or online retailers until after a specific amount of time has passed.
• Do the easiest tasks first rather than last. Go through your To Do List and determine which things can be done in two minutes or less. Complete those tasks first and check them off so you know you don’t have to do them later on.
Be more productive at work. You’ve got the tools so now all you have to do is implement them. Being organized helps you keep the things that you need and use most by your side so you don’t lose time searching for them. You can pull them out of your BinderBag Messenger Bag and get back to the task at hand.
