Productivity is increasingly important in the workplace and often it carries over into your personal life as well.  Consider these four principles to help you stay focused at work and boost your productivity:

Stay Healthy

Doctor’s orders are also good for your work productivity.  Little things like eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep are essential to being at your best both at work and home.  Take a break for lunch and small walking breaks throughout the day. You will find that you will get more done with higher quality when you are taking the time to tend to your physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Minimize Distractions

Create a work environment where you are able to focus on one task at a time. Turn off phone notifications, the wifi and close the door when you are working on important tasks. Set aside time to answer emails instead of popping in and out of your inbox every few minutes. Create a physical space that is inviting with natural lighting and free from clutter as well.

Plan and Execute

Creating smart goals and project plans to maximize efficiency and meet deadlines is key to success. Break a larger project into smaller manageable chunks and set aside time on your calendar to complete each task.  Consider getting larger more important things done earlier in the day.

Ask for Help

Creating relationships with key coworkers who have special skills, relationships or talents is essential to productivity at work.  What may only take a few minutes for one person may take you hours to figure out and complete. Make sure you utilize their skills, give them credit, and return the favor as well.
