Efficiency is more important than ever in these days of budget cutbacks and ever growing productivity demands. One of the key elements of working smarter is simplifying the way you work and where you work. Here are some examples:
Schedule routine tasks into 4 segments: early morning, late morning, early afternoon, late afternoon. Decide which tasks you perform better at which time.
Organize your workplace. Remove from your space anything you don’t need consistent access to, like a stapler, or three hole punch. Keep papers in appropriate baskets: pending, action, active project or to be filed. Deal with paperwork when you do administrative work.
Keep a to-do list to handle projects activities. The list can help you maintain a focused list of priorities.
Remember, Don’t be a victim!
