Do you work efficiently? No? Today I have 12 tips to work efficiently. Let me know in the comments which tip is your favorite one.
Wake up earlier
This makes sense right? If you normally would wake up around 8 am and now wake up at 7 or maybe 6 in the morning, you have at least one hour more to do your work.
Learn how to say no
You can’t do everything at the same time. And to much to do can causes stress. Do you really want to do all those things? If not, just say no.
Do important things first
The less important stuff can wait. You don’t want to have the problem that you don’t have enough time for your important things. That is why you have to do them right away.
Time limit for a task
If I set a time limit for writing a blog, I noticed how easily it is to finish writing that blog in that amount of time. Because I know I have so many minutes/hours for a task, I stay focused.
Don’t think about the rest of your to do list
It will stresses you out when you think of all the things you still have to do. Just write them down and let go.
Do less to achieve more
Less is more. When you do less, you have more focus and time for your tasks.
No distractions, no people.
Make a habit of important tasks
Are there any important tasks you work on every single day? Make it a habit. I write my blogs in the morning for example. That is also the time of the day when I am really focused
Save little tasks
You can check your mail every hour, but you can also answer them all at once. Check your e-mail every two days and make time for it to answer them all.
One single task at the time
Some people think that multi-tasking is efficiently. However, it is not. Because you are not completely focused and you can make mistakes.
When you finished that big task with a break of half an hour. Your brain will be happy with that too, because it needs to rest every now and then. Try to meditate during your breaks, so you will stay focused.
