I am happy that I have an audience to share these things with. So if you want to know how to be efficient at work read till the end.
Keep your desk clean
The lesser the items on your desk, the clearer your head. When there are two many things in front of you, it is normal to be overwhelmed but when you have things clearly mapped out and set in place neatly on your desk, you have little to worry about. Organization is very important, learn it.
Keep a notepad close by
Scribbling urgent things on sticky notes can help to clear your mind so that you have the chance to prioritize. To be efficient, you have to have less things to worry about. A notepad is your second mind. Too much of stuff on your mind reduces speed and accuracy.
Handle only what you can
If you feel that you have too much task assigned to you, you can speak to your immediate boss if you know jobs can be reassigned to some other people to release you of the pressure. We all know of how some folks work thrice as hard as the rest of their colleagues. They could make life easier by speaking out. Too much of work reduces efficiency.
Keep everything handy
Having to stand up every now and then to get this and that isn't cool. Exhaustion sets in if you have a lot of work to do. Just like we mentally prepare ingredients for a meal, prepare everything you will need at work in your head and get them close by. Your work is faster and better with everything close by.
I wish you a fabulous week ahead. Happy Monday.
