Although a large portion of us have lost all track of what day it is and it’s starting to feel like a month of Sundays, the fact is, it’s still Monday and it’s still a great idea to start the week on the right foot. Here are just a few tips to help you get your week off to the best start.
1. One Thing at a Time
Focus your attention on one thing at a time. Allowing your mind to focus on one task often boosts creativity, helps maintain concentration and each time you complete a task gives you a motivational boost.
2. Write a List
It doesn’t need to be an essay, just jot a few notes down to remind you of the tasks you have and when they are due. Keeping these to hand will allow you to mentally prepare yourself to accomplish this list and allocate time for each item.
3. Stick to a Schedule
If you have a schedule in place try your best to stick to it, nobody likes the feeling of too much work creeping up on them. The more you plan your workload the more likely you are to achieve the goals you have set.
4. Set Achievable Goals
If you think that a task will take you too long or you are not adequately qualified to complete the task then make sure you only add it to your ‘To Do’ list when it is achievable within your time frame.
5. Optimise Your Time
Start early, ensure you have adequate time for breaks, prepare a lunch that you enjoy and take the time to speak to those around you. Having time away from your workspace and your work is essential to remain productive. If you wear yourself out during the morning, become hungry, tired and irritated then this will strongly affect the way your afternoon plays out.
6. Review Your Work
Give yourself a pat on the back if you’ve earnt it! If you feel there are areas you could have improved in or a more efficient approach then write it down, learn from it and apply it the next time you work on that task.
With these tips in mind, you can get your week off to the best possible start, set your goals, achieve them and more. Don't forget you can check out our latest job vacancies here https://www.class1personnel.com/job-search
