Plan Ahead

The night beforehand jot down a list of all the tasks that need to be accomplished the next day.  By creating a plan and writing it all out, you’re mentally preparing yourself for the day ahead and allowing yourself to be ready for whatever is thrown at you.  Without a plan, it’s easy to become stressed, panicked or indecisive, allowing small, simple tasks to become larger than life. This waste of time and energy can leave you finishing your work day feeling frazzled and not having accomplished what you had intended. To make your new routine become like second nature, plan as far ahead as you can, in advance. Pre-planning fires off positive emotions within your brain, allowing you to think progressively and actively envision what you’re trying to achieve. Planning also serves as a good marker for you to gauge and track your progress from one week to the next.  

Work From Biggest to Smallest

It’s very easy to get caught up in the minutiae of office life. Of course, be prepared for the inevitable day-to-day emergencies, but it’s important not to forget the bigger picture and your more pressing goals.  The best plan of action is to tackle three of your biggest tasks at the start of the day. Using the plan that you created the night before, schedule your day around these goals and stick them somewhere that is at eye-level to stop you from getting distracted.

Keep Things Bright and Light

Working in a bright and clean environment can do absolute wonders for your productivity. Office interiors can often be drab and uninspiring, so whether you’re working from home or have your own corner cubicle, make an effort to create a workspace which is positive and free from distractions. Creating a space that you enjoy being in and that inspires you can be a huge factor when it comes to making the most out of your workday.

Keep A Positive Attitude

A sunny and positive outlook can help you have a fantastic day. Although you may encounter problems, like we all do, a great demeanour can make sure you’re unshakeable and refuse to be stressed.  A huge energetic approach can help you appear confident, capable and proficient to colleagues and those you encounter and can also serve to boost office morale.
