Have you ever heard the saying “time is money?” Well this is especially true at work, which is why it’s important to improve your efficiency so that you can stay ahead of your projects. Here are three ways to up your productivity and save time at work…
- Prioritizing: Critical vs. Important – Do you have a lot of work on your to-do list? There’s an easy way to prioritize your work by dividing it up into two categories: critical and important. The critical tasks are the more time-sensitive jobs. Tackle these first before moving to the important tasks. This technique will not only help you manage your time better, but will also increase your work performance.
- Email Time Management – Most people leave their email open all day at work, and respond to messages as soon as they are received even if they are working on an unrelated project. This can be detrimental to your work efficiency. We suggest scheduling dedicated email times throughout the day. This will reduce distractions, making you much more productive.
- Planning Ahead – One of the best ways to save valuable time at you workplace is to have a strict game plan for the next day. This allows you to have a clear picture of what your day should look like. If you stick to the plan, you are certain to have a more productive day.
