Productivity is critical to your success.
If you need to boost productivity in an increasingly busy workplace, try planning out your day the night before. Prioritize the tasks that MUST be completed. When you are interrupted by unexpected assignments or emergencies, you’ll know exactly what needs to be done when you return to your desk. Not only will a schedule help keep you organized and focused, you’ll get the satisfaction of crossing items off your “to do” list once you complete them.
I remember many days where I would chat with Rhonda about the accomplishments of the day.
Sometimes, I would come home exhausted, but could only recall one or two salient activities or interactions. Keeping and crossing off items on a to do list really helped me gain some satisfaction from the day. And the unfinished to do list from today became the basis for a new to do list for tomorrow.
A quick review of the past day and what is ahead the next day could be the key to making a positive impact on your productivity.
