If you're familiar with the phrase, "work smarter, not harder" then you know that workflow strategies can make a world of difference in your day-to-day schedule.
At Olympus, we value our industrious teams who excel at turning apartment communities into lasting homes. While they undoubtedly work hard, we also admire their smart strategies for working effectively and diligently.
So, if you're looking to turn your productivity up a notch, here are a few practices that will make your workday much more manageable:
Discover Your Most Productive Time of The Day
Are you wide-eyed and ready in the morning hours? Or, do you hit your stride in the final stretch of the day? While the majority of people are at their most alert and focused at the onset of their workday, others may feel more productive later on. Regardless, it's important to align mentally arduous tasks with your brain's peak hours. So, if you're a morning person and you have the flexibility, crank out those important reports at the beginning of the day, and then reserve a task that comes easier for later.
Answer To Someone
No matter how high up the corporate ladder you are, it's important to communicate your goals and personal expectations to a coworker. When ambitions are shared with others, you naturally feel more accountable, and are therefore more likely to get the job done. Enlighten coworkers with your progress at recurring meetings. They'll eventually expect to hear your weekly news and you'll feel inspired to go the extra mile and deliver.
Get Up & Move
It may feel difficult to walk away from a looming deadline, but studies have shown that taking time to move and decompress can boost performance. The more time you spend at your desk, the more your attention span wanes, and the longer it will take to accomplish a single task. Consider breaks as your chance to recharge your batteries. Step away from your computer, leave your phone in your desk, and enjoy the company of others. Or, grab your favorite book and escape into another world for 30 minutes. You'll return refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of the day. Click here for more approved lunchtime activities.
