Finally, the New Year is approaching a lightning speed, and you know exactly what that means: NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS! One thing that we can all improve on regardless of what you do, where you work, or what your favorite flavor of ice cream is (mine's Neapolitan in case you were wondering), is working efficiently. So, we put together 6 tips on how to work efficiently this upcoming new year for your productive pleasure.
Clean Desk, Clean Mind
One of the first tasks you can do to start the new year right is clean your desk! Got that old coffee mug that you haven't used in three years? Donate it! Sticky notes from meetings you attended 3 months ago still lingering? Trash them! Use this opportunity to treat yourself to a nice desk organizer, too!
Goal setting might seem like an obvious productivity tool, but it's not always easy to stick to. Instead of setting arbitrary goals, create a schedule and plan for your goals. Also, you can set achievable deadlines with rewards. You'll find it fun and more gratifying to reach those goals when you hit them on time!
Working through a long day without breaks can be a one-way ticket to BurnOut Ville. Schedule 2-3 20-30 minute breaks where you can drink water, walk around the building, or get a breath of fresh air. Also, if you work at a desk, rest your eyes from electronic screens. Don't go staring at your cellphone on your break. Your eyes will thank us later.
Stay on Schedule
Naturally, we as humans SUCK at multi-tasking. Sure, you may be a super-mom who can juggle multiple schedules and an insane amount of responsibilities, but even adding just one more to-do can throw the whole system helter-skelter. The best thing to do is make a schedule daily and weekly and stick to it. On average, it takes about 26 minutes for people to recover from a distraction at work according to UCI scientist Gloria Mark. Stick to your schedule and you'll find your tasks will be done quickly and efficiently.
Budget, Budget, Budget
Money makes the world go 'round and also your business! Although it shouldn't necessarily be your only motive, it is important to keep track of your funds. If you're still new to personal financing, take a course at your local community college or online. In the end, it will help you be more prepared for taxes, and maybe even leave room for an end-of-the-year shopping spree!
