4 Don’ts to Avoid Being Too Busy Syndrome

Did you know that the people who always tell that they are very busy are in fact the most ineffective ones?  In an article, Being Too Busy Syndrome by Ceren Cubukcu says that being too busy is not an indication of efficiency and productivity, but rather of poor time management.

Below are 4 don’ts to become more productive and less busy.

  1. Don’t waste your time with redundant tasks.

First thing first.  In other words, you cannot do everything at once so stop wasting time with unnecessary tasks, but finish first the most important task.  For instance, don’t always check your emails or social media accounts. You are not obliged to respond immediately.  Finish what you are working on first and then start replying to emails or returning to calls.

  1. Don’t say yes to every task.

Don’t say yes to every task if you still have more on your plate. Why? Because if you are afraid to say “no” you are compelled to divide your time and energy to various tasks instead of focusing on one task and finishing it successfully.

  1. Don’t get distracted.

Do not allow anything else or your coworkers in team office space Lake Mary distract you until your break time or until you get that specific task done. Focusing your time and energy only on the task at hand will take you less time to complete.
