Nearly everyone in the business world wants to be more productive. This is naturally much easier to say than do. There is an enormous amount of advice available online and in books, and at Eagle Eye Events we have found that a lot of this advice is either a bit overwhelming or just too difficult to be practical. Here are a few of our favorite yet simple efficiency boosts:
• Organize Your Desk: Your workspace is extremely important to your productivity. Every night before you leave the office, spend a few minutes getting everything organized. This will reduce distractions and make it easier for you to work efficiently in the morning.
• Add Color and Plants: This is especially powerful if you do creative work. Adding some color and nature to your workspace is a great way to get the juices flowing. Even if you aren’t particularly innovative, more color can do wonders for your mood.
• Decorate: Similarly, it is a great idea to decorate your office or cubicle a little bit. Gather some photos of loved ones, get a few mementos and knick-knacks, or whatever it is that makes your space your own.
• Tackle the Hard Stuff First: It is tempting to leave your hardest work for last. However, if you tackle the difficult responsibilities earlier, you will have more energy to address them with and your day will be smooth sailing from there.
Using these simple productivity tips, we have seen a major improvement at Eagle Eye Events. We strongly recommend these to any professional who wants to accomplish more work in less time.
