4 Ways To Be More Productive at Work

Prioritize

Prioritizing tasks takes a lot of effort, but can ultimately help you be far more productive during your workday. Start with your most daunting tasks first. Completing your largest, most difficult projects at the beginning of the workday, when your mind is the freshest, will ensure that they are not avoided. Give yourself realistic time limits for each of your projects and execute accordingly. Not only will this help you have a more efficient workday, but it will also decrease stress. Prioritizing is key.

 Create To Do Lists

First thing in the morning, make a to do list of all the things you need to accomplish over the course of the workday in a priority sequence, along with any other notes you need to remember. Making a to do list first thing in the morning helps to organize your entire day and allows you to clearly see what you need to achieve. Set time goals for each task and try and stick to them. A good tip for creating to do lists is to break down when you are at your peak performance each day, and plan your to do list tasks accordingly so you are using those peak times to complete your most complicated tasks.

 Schedule Breaks

Strategizing and writing take a lot of mental effort and you brain can only focus for a specific amount of time. Schedule a break into your workday routine. Short breaks help you to be more productive during your workday as they help you focus, reenergize and keep your momentum up. Getting away from your desk for even a few short minutes allows you to come back with a fresh perspective and can help you produce better quality work!

 Don’t Multi Task

Since we are creatures of habit, it is safe to say that our brains are not good at multi-tasking or task switching. When multi-tasking, you are unable to focus on important details and are more likely to forget things, or leave things out. Multitasking also makes you less productive. Experts say that individuals experience a 40% loss in productivity when multi tasking or task switching between projects. It’s better to focus on one task at a time to produce effective, quality work and be more productive in the workplace.
