Have a clean orderly desk or work environment. Clutter or messiness means more time looking for what you need. After you finish a task file away what you may need in the future and discard everything else.
Schedule your time which includes family time or time away from work. Scheduling is a major way of staying efficient and there is no reason why you shouldn’t continue the good efficient habit away from work. By scheduling you will usually find some time for everything of importance in your life.
Prioritize your tasks based on importance and deadlines.
Break up large tasks into smaller ones if possible.
Eliminate distractions which can mean not answering phone calls, just simply closing the door, or posting a do not disturb unless it is an emergency sign.
Don’t procrastinate but start on important tasks or assignments as soon as possible.
Take 10 minute work breaks every hour or two during which you can meditate, close your eyes and think, exercise in place, or eat a healthy snack.
Reward yourself after completing some difficult task with a work break.
Use technology wisely. Use calendar and scheduling apps and check your emails only about 2 or 3 times a day unless you are a salesman or manager. Stay away from time wasters like Facebook and Twitter.
You need to recharge your batteries if you are working smart and hard so try to eat healthy organic food, get enough exercise, and get enough sleep at night so you will feel refreshed and energized in the morning.
