You often (hear) complain that work is so busy that you don’t have time for family, friends and other social relationships.
Here are 5 ways to help you work smarter and be more successful no matter what industry you work in.
1. Plan daily, weekly and monthly work
Organize your work time reasonably, break down the workload, define deadlines and prioritize the order in which tasks need to be completed. These are the first steps to help you avoid falling into the “work mess” and not knowing where to start.
2. Avoid holding on to many things
There will always be things that you cannot do better than others. If you are really overwhelmed or having difficulty in a certain task, do not silently “suffer”, speak up for help from colleagues or learn to empower others. This not only ensures the quality of work, but also helps to practice teamwork.
3. Always set 2 levels of “deadline”
A tip to help you always complete tasks on time: Always set 2 deadlines for each task. The first level is 1-2 days before the last deadline level. This way, you’ll always be sure to have an allowance for things that don’t go as planned, or have more time to better prepare for upcoming projects/tasks.
4. Keep the workplace from distractions
This is the secret to help you always stay focused and work in the most effective way. Imagine how much time you would waste completing a task/task if you were surfing Facebook, checking email or “chatting” with friends every 5 minutes.
5. Write short and to the point emails
You don’t need a long paragraph if you can express your intention in a short sentence. Not only does it help to avoid wasting your and your recipient’s time, but because people tend to respond faster to direct and concise email messages.
Wish you achieve your dream career.
