How To Increase Workplace Productivity
Making the most of your time is crucial to achieving your corporate goals. If you want to increase your output, be more deliberate about using effective workplace productivity strategies.
The top three include:
The ‘Two-Minute’ Rule
This strategy aims to help you make the most of those small windows of time you get while you’re on the clock. The gist of it is to immediately complete tasks which require little time—two minutes to be exact.
For example, if you have to send a simple, brief email to a colleague, don’t procrastinate. Finish the work right away so that you can save time by not having to return to it later. The time you’ve saved can be used on more pressing tasks.
A manageable level of work-related stress can actually help you reach your targets before the deadline. The key here is to set a deadline for yourself, by yourself. Stick to this deadline even if it’s an open-ended project.
You might be surprised by just how determined and focused you become when you have to meet your own expectations.
Work During Commute
I know that this doesn’t sound enticing, but trust me; once you start taking advantage of this ‘bonus time’, you’ll start seeing a rise in productivity. The same idea applies to any unexpected free-time you can get your hands on during work-hours.
So, the next time you’re on your way to the office, stop scrolling through social media and do brainstorm or finish creating that to-do list.
