Many people struggle to optimally utilize their time at work. The good news is that conscious efforts can make you more productive at work. Here are 5 tips to improve productivity at work.
1. Organize your thoughts and tasks
During the day, you may have to complete multiple tasks, few will be planned while many will come unplanned. Stay calm. Don’t get overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. Organize your thoughts and prioritize the tasks. Some may get spilled over the next day but that’s ok as long as you are giving your 100% to the work in hand.
2. Take short breaks
This may sound counterproductive but short breaks between tasks actually improve your concentration. These breaks could also be an excellent avenue to interact with colleagues and get fresh ideas on your projects.
3. Set achievable deadlines
Set deadlines for each task. The pressure of a deadline will help you focus better and finish tasks on time, reliving you of unnecessary stress.
