6 Keys to Boosting Productivity
Now more than ever, companies are pushing their employees to work harder, better and smarter. In effect, many employees are drowning in work, are overwhelmed, less productive and don’t know which task to handle first. If this scenario sounds familiar to you, then it’s time for our top tips and some easy-to-implement ideas you might find useful.
1. Get organized
Where are last month’s progress reports? If you’re disorganized, it’s likely that you’ll spend too much time searching for things you need. So the heart of any good productivity plan is good personal organization. Set aside a day or even a weekend to go through your PC or laptop and organize files and folders, get rid of information or programs you no longer need, and clean up your workspace. Using folder and file naming conventions can make things even easier. Never allow a program to automatically name the file for you. Instead opt to give the file a descriptive name that allows it to be easily searched. In most current software and operating systems there are fewer limitations in how you describe a folder or file. Therefore, naming a folder with the full name, date and revision number of the file or document is not unheard of. This act of cleaning and organizing your files is not only valuable, it is mentally refreshing and you’ll be amazed at how much time and frustration you’ll save when you know exactly where to find that elusive progress report.
2. Identify and eliminate distractions
While ringing telephones and chatty colleagues are a regular part of office life, learn to identify when they’re getting in the way of your work. While some people can function perfectly well with noise and activity all around them, others find that even the gentle hum of a fan wrecks their concentration. If you’re the latter kind of person, don’t be shy about getting the peace you need to do your work properly. Retreat with your laptop to a quiet conference room, try noise-canceling headphones, or work from home if it’s feasible and less distracting.
3. Get plenty of rest
When your to-do list is three pages long, taking a break may sound counter-intuitive. However, you can’t work efficiently if your brain and body are exhausted — and working to exhaustion can create serious long-term health problems. So make sure you get sufficient sleep every night, and take short breaks during the work day. Even a ten-minute walk can revive you, reduce stress levels and improve your concentration.
