You wake up at 6 am, have a cup of rejuvenating coffee and some hash brown wrapped eggs, grab your newspaper and take your 7:30 local train to the office. Yes, your eyes are filled with somnolence and you find yourself suffering from a brain lull very often during work hours.
The way of life that we lead today, makes sure that we have to work more in a less amount of time as everybody needs maximum output in minimum time. We all have just 24 hours in a day, but the way we organize and manage our work is of utmost importance and determines the level of productivity that will in turn lead to lucrative results.
So here below are a few tactics, about how you can work more productively in less time.
Establishing routines is one way where you can carry out the regular task more efficiently and productively. Work output will also increase due to creation of routines. The routine which will be set should also be adhered to. Stick to new projects and delete them when completed. This will help you to do more work even if you have time constraints.
If we multitask then our tasks get affected adversely and our brain is not able to function properly. As a result, a person will not be able to dedicate his full concentration on one work. His input will always be less, than what he can actually do. So don’t be in a hurry and try to do one work at a time for better results.
Eliminate Unnecessary Meetings
Whenever a person feels that a meeting is not very important and can be eliminated, then it should be done so. Sometimes baseless meetings should not be given importance. Things done with half hearted efforts are redundant and won’t be of any use in the future.
Making lists have been always helpful and useful and it also reminds a person to not dawdle and focus to complete the target. It is always been advised by experts that multiple lists should be made, that is, short and long term goals. But a person should not focus on a long unrealistic agenda.
Clear Off your Desk
Experts recommend this approach highly. They say that every person should take out at least 15 minutes from his daily routines and clear his desk, that is, trash all the papers which are not required and also file the important ones.
Be Friendly to your Colleagues
A person should be aware about other people that are working with him and communication should always be good with them. Personal level interaction should also be maintained but that doesn’t mean you share about things which you are not comfortable with. But always try to create a friendly and healthy work environment.
Get More Organized
It is true that organized people get more work done. To organize yourself, first learn the art and figure out what works for you. Then set simple guidelines for yourself and work accordingly. This will always help you to work diligently and to the best of your abilities.
These simplest techniques often work best in life and one can always take baby steps to achieve what one wants. Following a simple mantra in life can create a huge difference.
