Prof DC Sharma

Have you ever paid at­ten­tion on how you can en­hance your out­put and pro­duc­tiv­ity? Well, most of us don't care to learn how we can. We keep on work­ing hard, with­out ever im­prov­ing on things which can help us to be at the top.

The end re­sult is that in spite of all our sin­cere labour, we of­ten lag be­hind.

So, wherein lay our weak­ness? It is sim­ply our ig­no­rance about the prin­ci­ples of en­hanced pro­duc­tiv­ity and out­put.

The first and fore­most prin­ci­ple of ris­ing higher and higher at the ca­reer rung is that we have so many dis­trac­tions which of­ten make us lose our fo­cus.

Fo­cus and sin­gle pointed con­cen­tra­tion is the ba­sic re­quire­ment which is a must for any­one search­ing for progress and pros­per­ity.

It is only when we re­al­ize that con­cen­tra­tion gets the things done most ef­fi­ciently and per­fectly that things are changed for the bet­ter.

The sec­ond most im­por­tant prob­lem with us as an em­ployee is that we fear to be­gin with the hard­est part of the work in hand. The more we fear and dreads the task, the more the prob­lem ag­gra­vates.

But once we boosts our morale with the ideas that noth­ing is im­pos­si­ble and put sin­cere ef­forts, we can touch the pin­na­cles of glory in a short span of time.

To reach the top, an em­ployee must know how to plan his work. It is only a good plan­ning that pro­vides the max­i­mum in­spi­ra­tion to an em­ployee to achieve his tar­get.

It is with a good plan­ning that one can find ways and means to en­hance his out­put and pro­duc­tiv­ity. With timely plan­ning a large of num­ber of prob­lems are eas­ily avoided and that too well in time. The wise say­ing which ad­vises that all evils be nipped in the bud ap­plies well when things are planned in time.

Some em­ploy­ees dare to spend much more time at the work­place, even say­ing that they de­vote over­time to earn more. Some even go to ex­tent of giv­ing less and less time to sleep.

Such a step at the cost of earn­ing more and more is a dan­ger­ous one. Un­less one de­votes suf­fi­cient time to hav­ing a sound sleep, one is not in a po­si­tion to get the max­i­mum out­put.

A min­i­mum of seven hours sleep is a must for all of us. But eight hours or even nine hours sound sleep can en­hance our pro­duc­tiv­ity all the more.

To en­hance your out­put and pro­duc­tiv­ity it is al­ways bet­ter if you set such goals which are ex­cit­ing. An ex­cit­ing goal will al­ways lead you to the best achieve­ments and that too on a solid foot­ing.

An ex­cit­ing goal never lets you down. It is al­most al­ways en­cour­ag­ing to work at a project which is mo­ti­vat­ing and en­cour­ag­ing. But the goal which brings in you the feel­ings of pes­simism is not a worth­while goal.

With a bor­ing goal you are al­most al­ways fin­ished be­fore you even be­gin to do such a job. So it is al­ways a wise step to know well in time that you take up only in­spir­ing and en­cour­ag­ing goals which let you reach the top sooner or later.

Pri­ori­tis­ing your step in the right di­rec­tion al­ways give you the right di­rec­tion to at­tempt in the best pos­si­ble man­ner.

Those who know the ben­e­fits of this plan do their best with the help of this method­ol­ogy. Do­ing the tough part of the work at first and the lighter parts later on never let you go down in spir­its.

You al­ways feel el­e­vated with such a method­ol­ogy, and even the work you do is of the best qual­ity as you al­ways feel in high spir­its while do­ing the job this way. But those who do not fol­low this pol­icy lose a lot of their en­ergy and the real spark to ig­nite their real po­ten­tial which alone can help en­hance pro­duc­tiv­ity.

It is al­ways bet­ter if you learn to or­gan­ise your work or job in hand. Bet­ter ar­range­ment of work is a ba­sic tool with which em­ployee can give the max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­ity to his or­gan­i­sa­tion.

To or­gan­ise well is not dif­fi­cult at all. It sim­ply needs to make it a point, al­most daily be­fore one be­gins the day's work, and with the pas­sage of time, it be­comes a habit with a worker.

You will see how ben­e­fi­cial it is when you once ap­ply this in your life style and work style.

The above given tech­niques are not at all dif­fi­cult. They are a mat­ter of in­ter­est, and as you try to fol­low them one by one, you will re­ally en­joy do­ing your work most smoothly, and most ef­fi­ciently.

I have seen so many peo­ple do­ing their best once they take to these meth­ods with a sense of ded­i­ca­tion and sin­cer­ity. I am sure you too will en­joy ap­ply­ing these skills, and shall join the army of those who have al­ready ben­e­fit­ted from this way.

But be­ware, you won't gain un­less and un­til you have a firm faith in these tools, and only then you can ex­pect the best re­sults.
