A recent article, 7 Ways You’re Letting Guilt Sabotage Your Work by Amanda Zantal-Wiener says that the things we do or we don’t  give us feelings of guilt that can harm our productivity. Everybody may seem to agree because guilt is rampant and it sabotages our ability to work and function.

Here are some different ways we let guilt overtake our productivity.

You’re comparing yourself to everyone else.

We feel guilty or inadequate when we see that someone in Orlando Plug and Play Offices is doing a better job than we are—- wasting your valuable time comparing yourself to others isn’t going to yield anything of value, it is nonsense.

You’re feeling guilty when you take frequent breaks.

You feel guilty about leaving your desk in Orlando Team Office Space frequently during the day. You assume that your teammates may think that you’re slothful or that you’re not getting your work done. Nonetheless, not taking regular breaks can harm your productivity.  According to a study, the most productive employees take a few-minute break every hour of work they put in.  

You’re afraid to ask for help.

You feel guilty (inadequate or insufficient) when you can’t do everything yourself or you don’t know about something. Not asking for help when needed can cause work delay. Remember, the most successful people ask for help when they need it.

You’re experiencing the Zeigarnik Effect.

It is defined as the “psychological tendency to remember an uncompleted task rather than a completed one”. At the end of the day, you feel inadequate and it seems like you dwell on the things you didn’t get done.  However, the good news about it is that, having an uncompleted task can actually improve the focus you put toward it later. Take breaks and step away from your work…let your unfinished task go until the next day.
