5 Ways to Get More out of Your Workday

We all have those days when it feels like we work all day but we don’t accomplish nearly as much as we wanted/needed to.  Well, here are 10 quick and painless ways to help you get the most out of your workday!

 

Tip #1: OHIO

Okay, yes . I know you already live in Ohio.  The OHIO method stands for Only

Handle It Once.  This is all about getting things done right here, right now, instead of putting things off for later.  Instead of adding a task to your to do list, go ahead and tackle it now.  My favorite place to use this method is in my email inbox.  If you’re one of those people who keeps a full inbox, try this method for a week.  It will seriously change your life.  You’re welcome.

 

Tip #2: Say “No”

You obviously can’t say “no” all the time, and you do want to practice turning down propositions politely, but erase the guilt that accompanies saying “no” when you are asked to do something that you simply aren’t able to do.  If you know that your workload is full, or your time is stretched too thin, don’t feel obligated to accept a request just because someone asked.   (No matter how politely they asked.)

 

Tip #3: Stop Multitasking

Trying to do 5 things at once will keep you very busy, but it will also take you 5 times as long to complete your tasks.  Slow down.  Take things one step at a time, and you will find that with each task you complete you will gain motivation to keep moving forward.  

 

Tip #4: Streamline

As humans we have a tendency to overcomplicate things.  Think about the task that you dread the most at work and consider how you can make things easier or at least make them run more smoothly.  It may be something as simple as changing the order in which you do certain aspects of a task that can completely change the way you look at it.   

 

Tip #5: Hire a Logan cleaning service

Slip a Real World Services business card onto your boss’ desk.  Don’t forget to mention some of the awesome benefits like how they offer affordable cleaning that can be fully customized to meet your office’s specific needs!  A clean office will help you accomplish more during your workday because you won’t be surrounded by tiny armies of dust bandits. (Dust is a serious concentration killer.)
