Whether it’s in our day to day lives or at work, we could all stand to become more productive. Taking steps to become more productive can lead to a promotion or a raise and a better work-life balance. Try out these simple steps to see if they make a difference in your productivity.
Change your approach to meetings – Sometimes a formal sit-down meeting isn’t always necessary. Can the issue be resolved with just a short conversation? Most meetings tend to circle around on the same track over and over again with no real results. Make it a priority to keep all participants focused on positive results.
Focus on your primary role – At work, it’s easy to get distracted and begin to help out with side projects that may seem more appealing than your normal tasks. Doing this typically results in losing focus on your job purpose and tends to push your name further down on the promotion list.
Take your full lunch break – And take it away from your desk! It may seem strange that actually walking away from work will help you to become more productive, but studies show that taking a break increases productivity. A nice lunch may be exactly what you need to get the wheels turning again.
Put down your phone – Text messages, personal emails and app notifications can be a huge hindrance to your productivity. If it is unrelated to what you are trying to accomplish right now, it can wait.
