Keeping yourself productive can be difficult. There are many ways to keep yourself alert and efficient. The first is to do the hardest tasks when you are the most alert. If you are a morning person than start on them early. Adjust to when you can get the most done. Next is to set aside time for administrative duties. This stops you from being interrupted throughout the rest of the day. Also take regular breaks. Fifteen minutes every hour and a half is recommended.Finally, stop multitasking, you will get more done if you focus on a single task at a time.
- While it is often difficult to effectively manage time at work, it is best to stop multitasking and focus on completing one thing at a time.
- Another good idea to be more effective at work is to understand how your brain functions, and to try complete the more difficult tasks when your brain is most alert.
- Interruptions like emails and text messages can be distracting, so it is useful to allocate a separate chunk of time to just handle administrative stuff.
“No matter how great our intentions are, it can be difficult to increase our productivity if we aren’t deliberate about how we manage our time.”
