Ways to Speed up your work
We have discussed at length about distractions at the workplace and how they affect our focus and speed of work. How many of these distractions are self-inflicted and how many are due to the work environment? Once we have this classification done, it will be easier to work towards eliminating the ones that are self-inflicted. Eliminating self-inflicted distractions clears the air so that employees can work on ways to improve their work productivity and speed.
Here are a few tips to bring back the focus and speed up your work:
1. Sharpen your focus:
Narrowing down your focus on work-related stuff helps in increasing productivity. Steering clear from distractions and focusing on your work helps get work done faster. This doesn’t mean you cannot take breaks; all you need to do is time your breaks so that you don’t lose focus on your work.
2. Set deadlines:
Self-imposed deadlines motivate employees to speed up their work. You can set everyday deadlines or weekly targets to complete your work. Still better, you can reward yourself once the targets are achieved. You can treat yourself to a movie or a meal at your favorite restaurant, or as simple as a candy bar when you achieve targets.
3. Set work schedules:
being organized in your work is a great way of increasing your productivity. Sketch a work schedule that times your work, breaks, and meetings. If you set a schedule for a week, then you can review and make changes whenever required.
4. Leverage technology:
Adopting the latest technology like automation can speed up business processes. Redundancies are eliminated and business processes are streamlined by automating the repetitive, mundane steps in a process. Approval delays can be avoided by automated approvals.
