Part 2How to Be More Productive at Work

Finding the proper app to manage your workflow is not the only way you can be more productive at work. Another way to improve your efficiency is to introduce small changes to your lifestyle and business habits. Here are some.

  • 1. Remove clutter from your office. No matter if you have just one desk, or an entire office for yourself, removing clutter allows you to think clearly and focus. Clean and organize your space all the time
  • 2. Prioritize, delegate, and then prioritize and delegate some more. Self-conceited people think they can do everything and be best at everything. Smart people know that delegating is more efficient. That being said, you cannot delegate everything. Focus on the important tasks, while you delegate everything else
  • 3. Implement the two minute rule. Speaking of delegation and prioritizing, the two minute rule is great. Basically, if there is a task that can be done in less than two minutes, do it immediately. Do not delay simple tasks that can take less than two minutes. If you have to go back at it later, it will take you more time
  • 4. Take short breaks, no matter if it is to just run to the closest coffee shop, or just taking a walk around the block. Or even a walk in the office. Short breaks can vastly improve your performance. Nobody can focus and concentrate for long hours. You need to take your mind off for a minute or two
  • 5. Do not multitask. For few years now, people are trying to argue that multitasking is the best way to save time. Well, it isn’t. At the end of the day, you are wasting more time than you are gaining. Multitasking can seriously hurt your productivity in the long run
  • 6. Improve the efficiency of your meetings. Truth be told, if you can cancel meetings, even better. Meetings have become the most bothersome and irritating thing in the day. To improve your meetings efficiency and productivity at work, try to accomplish the same goals via web-based meeting or standing meeting.
