Does being unproductive leaves you with no time for yourself? If your answer is yes then you are among the 70% of employee’s in your company who are unproductive at work.
Here are 6 best ways to increase productivity.
1 – Wake Up Early
Early risers have more time than rest of the people. They have more time for planning and strategic thinking. They are one step ahead from the crowd: calm, collected and organized even waking up early sets your whole day with energy and confidence so if you have still not developed the habit of waking early, start it now.
2 – Set Specific and Time Bound Goals
The first step before starting your work must be writing down your tasks for that day with deadlines.
You must break your major tasks into smaller ones and setup goals that are achievable, specific and measurable.
3- Implement the “two-minute rule”
Identify tasks that won’t take much time and finish them first. According to entrepreneur Steve Olenski, finding and immediately completing tasks that take two minutes or less actually saves you time. So, if it takes less than two minutes, do it now.
4 – Take a Break
Things not working out while working? Rather take a break. I have personally felt when I am stuck on something from a long time ,scratching my head to find a solution, took a 15 minutes break and boom! Things started working out. Taking a short break helps you to relax a bit thus giving more space for ideas and even a larger space to start the thinking procedure from the starting again.
5 – Set Up Right Environment of Your Work Place
Good work environment starts with the right people. Surround yourself with energetic, positive and efficient people. Improve your communication with your teammates and be acceptant towards your negative feedback too.
Moreover improving work furniture and increasing lightening directly effects the efficiency of people according to the study of University of Carolina at an online MBA program,
6 – Analyze Your Day
Analyzing your day is one of the most important thing that people miss.
You should be well aware of where your time is spent to rectify the week areas thru out your day. In case of computing jobs, thanks to software’s like Backlsh that make calculating time spend on productive & non-productive apps /web automatic and easy.
So, start analyzing your day if you haven’t started it yet.
