A recent article, How to Clear Your Head—and Boost Your Productivity by Rick Goodman says that running a business or leading a team is overwhelming, your mind is preoccupied with so many things- goals to achieve, people to connect with, obstacles to overcome, etc. These things can clutter your mind and adversely affect your focus and creativity.
Here are some tips to declutter your headspace and increase your productivity.
Don’t check email first thing in the morning.
Give yourself time in the morning to accomplish at least a few things with a clear, fresh mind before you allow email communications to meddle. The volume of email can be intimidating so make it the fifth, sixth, or seventh item on your to-do list.
Turn off all electronic alerts.
Disable all electronic alerts so you free yourself from the constant onslaught of distractions. Instead, set a particular time during the day to check your phone, tablet or laptop and see if there is a text message, email or a Facebook message.
Break larger goals into smaller ones.
Big projects can be intimidating, so make sure to determine what matters most and prioritize which are most significant. Break them into smaller steps, perhaps just one or two reasonable goals for each day or meet your team in meeting space Ballantyne and discuss with them what to do to accomplish these projects in timely fashion. This is a great way to manage all that noise in your head.
Take regular breaks.
Constantly focusing your thoughts on big tasks and projects can be devastating, thus it’s very important to allow your mind to rest in order to regain focus. Have a quick walk outside your office in executive suites Ballantyne, meet a friend in a nearby coffee shop or simply take a power nap. Do something to relax.
Following these simple steps will keep your sanity and increase your productivity in spite of a hectic schedule. Looking for a better office?
