1. Do the thing that you don’t want to do first. Every employee has tasks the don’t like to do. By setting these tasks aside, they often waste time during the day being distracted and worried about those tasks. The best thing they can do is clear their mind and tackle those dreaded tasks first.
2. Schedule a set time every day for quiet time. During this time, you need to avoid checking your emails, answering phones, and getting up from your desk. Take this time to focus your attention on getting your work done.
3. Take a break every 90-minutes and clear your head. If you aren’t able to take a break, switch projects. This will help you stay focused on what you need to get done and help you finish your tasks much faster.
4. Clear your desk and plan for tomorrow. At the end of each day, clear your desk and make a list of the tasks that you need to complete tomorrow. This will allow you to hit the ground running when you get back into the office.
