If you're like us you probably spend quite a bit of time working hard. I mean really hard. For a lot of us it comes with the territory. However, the goal is always to work smarter, not harder! Although most of our days are started with the best of intentions many times we find ourselves sidetracked with emails, phone calls, social media, impromptu meetings and countless other distractions. Follow these steps to increase your productivity and make the most of your time.
1. Take advantage of the mornings. You’re mind is most rested and refreshed in the morning. You’ll experience greater focus throughout the day if you tackle your toughest tasks first.
2. Make a plan. At the beginning of each week, make a list of every task you need to accomplish. Break large projects into smaller parts and enumerate each step. Then look at your calendar and block out space in your schedule for each task.
3. No Multi-Tasking! You’ve probably heard your peers brag about how much they multitask. Unfortunately, they’re sabotaging their own productivity. You may look busy, but your efficacy is sacrificed for appearance’s sake. Single-tasking allows you to complete every task better and in a fraction of the time.
This week we challenge you to work smarter, not harder! If your to-do list for this week includes any projects that we may assist with, we would love the opportunity.
As always thank you so much for your continued business and I look forward to working with you soon.
