Secret to be more productive at your office

We’ve all heard and know about the “Hard Work-Smart Work” contradiction – but to most of us in here, that is nothing more than just a bunch of fancy words, when we know we’re neither! 

Gone are the days when you have to put in long hours of work to succeed. But now – it’s all about smart work – that is, finding the right formula to get it done. So here are three tips that will help you become more productive at the office.

1.      Multitasking is a Myth

One of the most important things to note when trying to find a productive lifestyle is to ditch multitasking.

You think you’re doing both — working hard and smart — while multitasking, but research studies suggest otherwise. In fact, multitasking is counterproductive, not only resulting in lost time but also in lost productivity.

Why not try to focus on one task at a time before moving on to the next?

2.      Distraction Control

Blocking out distractions give you the ability to interact with the world in a goal-oriented way.

Juggling tasks without making mistakes means you have trained yourselves to screen out useless information and distractions to give full focus to the tasks at hand.

Letting people know politely that you need just a moment for concentration – will block out any distractions from colleagues disturbing you or the ringing of your office phone

3.      Emotions Management

Controlling and maintaining your emotions is a very essential office etiquette.

When you unleash your crises mode, you’ll take the stress out on others and waste time getting into arguments which ultimately leaves you feeling less efficient.

This will not only increase your productivity on the whole, but also brings sufficient time to do things, focus at one thing at a time, set very clear goals, and constantly develop our skills to meet the challenge.
