A lot of us face similar challenges of having a lot to get done every day to get ahead or even just to keep up in our work. There are a lot of different office workspace designs that help to increase productivity, however those can cost a lot of money. Below are a few simple ideas on how to maximize your day without costing you any penny.
3 Daily Must Dos
Most entrepreneurs start their day as early as 5 in the morning just to keep up with the work ahead of them. The secret here is no matter what time you start your day, write 3 daily must dos that you need to finish.
This is a time management technique to encourage you to work without any interruption and stay focused for 25 minutes and then take a 5 minute break. This will give you longer energy, and you will not feel stressed out after finishing one project.
Keep your pod or desk clear. I know some of you can work better with clutter in their workstation, however, try decluttering your pod and see if you feel more in control while working.
Take Care of Yourself
Stress can do a lot of bad things to you and to your health. Do not forget to eat and take some guilt-free breaks every day. Try to squish in an exercise activity or a walk. If you really have a tight schedule, you can just get a high table so you can stand up and transfer your laptop from there at least one or a couple of times during your day. You will feel much better instead of spending 8 or more hours sitting on your chair.
Form a Team
The saying that says “Work Smarter, not Harder” is really true. Form your own team or hire someone to do the things you do not want to do. You can outsource it online if you cannot hire someone from your company. You will be surprised someone from the other side of the country can do this work for you and sometimes much better that how you do it.
These are just simple ways to have a better workday without even spending any penny. Remember, it is not how hard you work, but it is how much work you get done!
