Tips to be remembered to become more productive at work!
Part of working efficiently is having solid time management. However, in some cases there are many obstacles while working, if many are busy with what they are doing, there are very long and vacant hours in the eight-hour work a day.
What exactly are those top five time-wasting culprits? Some of these might be gossiping, conducting personal business, going to the bathroom and fiddling with something at the table.
Such things simply cannot believe removed. It can't really be avoided, because we all need these things too. It's part of our daily work, so that's a breaker too.
But to prevent us from having wasted time but to have more responsibility at work and not too much wasted on such trivial things, here are the things that should be remembered.
1. WRITE LONG-TERM GOALS. These goals must be pursued in an intelligent manner and be specific, time-bound, appropriate, realistic and time-bound. For example, if you have a networking event planned elsewhere, set a goal to send an invitation by the end of the week. Surely before the end of next week many will respond to this.
2. CLASSIFY GOALS ACCORDING TO PRIORITIES. Each day, you must determine what level of priority each goal is assigned. The "A" that will be marked should be the high-priority task that needs to be completed quickly, while the "B" or "C" will be set aside first and then dealt with in the next stage of work. You can also follow this strategy for more difficult tasks, breaking them down into more manageable chunks, such as setting out to write the first five pages of your 20-page report.
3. SWORN TO WORK NO MATTER THE SCHEDULED HOURS FOR EACH JOB IN A DAY. Decide that you will only focus on the work for those moments, for example half an hour or an hour. During those times, turn off personal email or social media and close the internet browser as well. To make this time more efficient for you, mark the working hours on the calendar and don't schedule anything else.
4. ONLY CHECK SOCIAL MEDIA AT THE RIGHT TIME. Periodically opening email, chat messenger and other social media accounts can very easily distract you from what you are doing. To avoid this, just set it to two or even three times a day if you check email (like for example only at 11 am and 3 pm). Think about what to do with each message that is received - will it be acted upon? Delete it or put it in a folder and then come back to read it?
5. CLEAN THE WORKSPACE. A non-essential item on the table while tidying up is another waste of time. Set the table well, even if you are a little late for lunch, as long as the table and cabinets are tidy and clean. Clean the keyboard and phone and file important papers in the right folder. Display to-do lists in front of you, keep them on the computer monitor so you can always see and remember.
6. BE READY TO SAY 'NO'. If someone comes to you and has an "urgent" request that will interfere with your schedule and other work, you can calmly answer, "Maybe I can do that, maybe tomorrow, because I have a lot of work right now, is that okay?" you?”
7. AVOID GOSSIPING. If a co-worker stops by your desk to talk to you, calmly tell them you have a deadline to meet and set another time when you two can talk. Or post on your whiteboard outside the cubicle asking anyone to just leave a message if needed, because you're busy and have a lot going on.
Have a nice day everyone! Be more productive each day!
