Productivity is a buzzword everyone wants to associate with. Success is often measured by efficiency in time and other resources. But productivity in business means more than just getting things done faster or using fewer resources. Itâ€™s also about adding value to the business and meet company objectives.
In this digital age, it becomes even more crucial to avoid distractions and stay on task to help you accomplish your work. If you are looking to improve your productivity at the office, adopt and keep up with the following habits to help you deliver the right kind of value efficiently.
Define your most important tasks
Each day, take a few moments to point out 3 to 5 tasks you must accomplish. This will help you focus your energies on the right things. Getting things done should not meet cramming as much as possible during your workday â€“ keep the focus on important tasks. Take a less-is-more approach to your daily to-do list. When you redirect your attention on accomplishing things that matter, youâ€™ll get things done faster and produce better quality.
Itâ€™s easy to get things done when you have a defined sequence of activities in a task. You work faster when things are in a routine. Create a system and schedule certain things in the morning and afternoon. For example, plan several slots in certain times of the day to check your email inbox and set reminders to respond to important messages. If you need to conduct meetings, save them for the afternoon if possible â€“ tackle your challenging tasks in the morning when your mind is still fresh and alert.
How your desk is organized can also help you to accomplish your daily tasks. Ensure you donâ€™t have crammed spaces to work in that can hinder productivity. If youâ€™re looking for a bigger space, our property at 118 Joo Chiat offers commercial spaces and offices for rent near 112 Katong

There is a perception that being able to multitask is an essential skill for increasing efficiency. However, the opposite may be true as psychologists discover that trying to do a few tasks at once can lead to lost time and productivity. As such, make a habit of committing to one task before you move on to the next project and maintain your creativity.
Take breaks often
After several long hours of work, you may feel the signal from your brain to take a break. Give yourself a moment to refresh by grabbing a snack, reading the news or just meditating. You can also jazz up your workspace with aesthetically pleasing elements, such as pictures, candles and plants, which can help to increase productivity. After your break, youâ€™ll be recharged and ready to jump back into greater efficiency.
