Productivity at work
Have you taken a look at your desk lately? Is it neat and tidy? How about organised? Now that you’re looking around, it may come as a shock to realise your desk is disorganised and extremely untidy. If you have just now noticed that pile of folders sitting on the upper right corner of your desk, then there’s a problem.
It’s hard to keep things neat and nice when you’re faced with deadlines and 1001 tasks are waiting to be finished. However, science has proven that you can actually get more done if your desk is organised and neat!
Why are Monday’s So Hard for some people? One theory is that because we don’t get enough sleep during the week, many of us try to get caught up with extra sleep on the weekends. The thought is that an extra hour or so will help us; however, science has shown that the extra sleep only confuses our body clock. By Monday, we’re so messed up that it’s hard to get up and revved for the week!
Another reason Monday’s are difficult is because we’re basically social animals. We tend to use weekends to socialise and have fun, which is important for our wellbeing. However, when we head back to work, it’s time to get caught up with our work “tribe,” which a way to re-integrate with our social lives at work. If you don’t do this on Monday, science proves you’ll regret it.
We’re all busy these days and it’s hard to find time to get everything done, including scheduling meetings. Everyone has disparate schedules and at times it’s difficult to get in touch with teammates and clients to set up that next all-important meeting date. Time is invariably wasted in the process, causing frustration and disruptions in your day.
If you find yourself in this scheduling maze, don’t fret—we’re here to help! We’ve done the research to find scheduling tools to make it easier than ever to set up that next important meeting. The right tool(s) can save you time and effort, saving your precious hours for more urgent tasks.
Ever wanted to feel more organised and blitz through your to-do list in half the time? If you have, then you’re not alone. Many of us turn to articles that promise us hacks and tricks to be more productive then wonder why we’re still rushing around with too much on our plates.
Whilst these articles may be very good at referencing the latest tools or software, I like to strip away the clutter and focus on simple habits that will make a big difference to your weekly routines.
Below I share five small things you can do to that will have a powerful effect on your productivity levels and help you to feel more calm and in control.
Half the battle to healthy living is in the approach we take to change and the habits we create. These habits can be just as important as the food we eat and the exercise we do when we’re looking to achieve those health related goals (and all goals for that matter!).
Creating new positive habits helps us sustain change, here’s a few tips on how to get started!
