A recent article, Being Too Busy Syndrome by Ceren Cubukcu says that we are all busy and there’s no doubt about it. Nevertheless, being very busy is not an indicator of efficiency and success, but probably improper management of time.
Here are some ways to become less busy and become more effective and productive.
Don’t say yes to every task.
Saying yes to every task while you still have more on your plate will lessen your focus and effectiveness. Why? Because you have to split your time and effort to different projects instead of putting all into one and finishing it off successfully.
Take regular breaks.
You should take a break every now and then to stay away from your desk, to rejuvenate and refresh your mind. For instance, you can call your loved ones, take a power nap or chat with your friends in coworking office space. This will help you stay more motivated and as a result, you will finish your tasks faster.
Prioritize your tasks.
You cannot do everything at once so refrain from doing unnecessary tasks. For instance, don’t always check your emails or social media accounts. You are not obligated to respond immediately. Finish what you are working on first and then start replying to emails or returning to calls.
Focus, focus, focus
Do not let your coworkers in team office space or anything else distract you until you finish that particular task or until your break time. Putting all your attention and energy only into the task that you are working on will take you less time to complete.
