Another year is successfully behind us. When we look back, we see our successes, new skills, opportunities for achievement . . . and everything we wish we could’ve done better. There’s always room for growth, and it doesn’t have to be hard. Hack office productivity with these New Year’s resolutions.
4 Resolutions for a More Productive Work Day
- Wake up early. Yes, the snooze button looks pretty tempting before the sun’s up, but getting a jumpstart on your morning will leave you less groggy later in the day. Skipping sleep isn’t a good idea either. To make sure you get a good night’s rest, go to bed at the right time to feel rested in the morning. Some smartphones have a “bedtime feature” if you need a little encouragement.
- Stress less. This may seem like a tall order, but studies show several clear contributors to work stress: job insecurity, long hours, and multitasking. By taking steps to overcome job stressors (and keeping healthy habits in your personal life), you can minimize your day-to-day stress.
- Stop checking email. Seriously, it will never end. Instead of stopping whatever task you’re performing to respond to each new email, plan to check it three times a day: when you get to the office, right after lunch, and 30 minutes before you clock out.
- Make a list. Productivity problems aren’t “one size fits all.” Make a list of which work tasks take up the most time, cause the most stress, and prevent you from completing other vital tasks. Then brainstorm with a coworker or supervisor about how to overcome your work productivity problems.
