Increasing productivity in 2018

Increasing productivity in 2018

Overcoming the post-holiday slump can be challenging. Between the build-up of emails and long to-do lists, getting back into a comfortable work routine may take some time.

Fortunately, there are many ways to become more engaged and energised at work which can effectively increase your productivity.

Consider the following ways to enhance your productivity in 2018:

Assign time to tasks

Group tasks into time periods instead of working on multiple tasks at once. This strategy helps to eliminate multitasking and create a better flow to your work. Flicking between emails, working on the task at hand whilst checking notifications on your phone will ensure your work gets done at a very slow pace.

The average office worker is simply not moving enough. Take regular breaks, exercise through your lunch break, walk to work, take the stairs – be sure to find ways to incorporate movement into your day. The benefits of exercise for productivity are plentiful – between improved concentration and focus to more energy, the evidence is clear.

Set goals
Taking the time to set daily and weekly goals can go a long way in increasing efficiency and productivity. Goal setting helps to measure progress, improve performance and can be a powerful motivational tool. Ensure your goals are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely) for optimal results.
