FO­CUS ON YOUR TASK FOR THE DAY

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Life Made Easy -

down 10 must-do tasks for each day that will help you achieve the out­come you de­sire at work. Th­ese tasks can­not be del­e­gated so pri­ori­tise them and al­lo­cate your time ac­cord­ingly.

Min­imise over­time by stay­ing fo­cused and not try­ing to mul­ti­task; the lat­est brain stud­ies show that you are less pro­duc­tive when you do. You’ll get far more done if you are re­lent­less and sin­gle-minded with the task at hand.

How­ever, don’t beat your­self up if you can’t com­plete those 10 tasks. It hap­pens, and we are hu­man. But you can def­i­nitely aim to build greater dis­ci­pline at work. Re­frain from check­ing e-mails and text mes­sages con­stantly. Have a set time each work­day to re­view and re­spond to them, and then delete, for­ward or re­spond im­me­di­ately. File e-mails that you don’t need to read so soon. If you’re faced with com­pet­ing tasks and dead­lines, iden­tify the ones that have greater im­pact, then ne­go­ti­ate with your boss to com­plete those first or ne­go­ti­ate for ad­di­tional re­sources or re­al­lo­ca­tion of re­sources. Re­mem­ber, work does
