Tips for productivity improvement
22.07.2019

When we are talking about improvements it might seem very easy but in fact, it’s sometimes harder than it should be. When you know the exact steps it could be much easier to implement it to your workflow. That’s why are we giving you tips on how to improve the productivity of your team.


Avoid meetings



Meetings are one of the biggest misapprehensions. People are wasting over 30 hours every month on unproductive meetings. If you need to talk with your team or someone from the team you should have a cup of coffee or tea instead of having a long meeting that won’t make any progress at the end.


Do something you are passionate about


Here we go – do what you love and love what you do is probably the most popular quote and that is very true. You can’t just do something for the money or you can.. but you won’t be happy and satisfied at the end of the day. Find something that will make you very excited and do it with passion. Only when work comes from the bottom of your heart could be successful in the long run. Where there is a passion there is a success!


Say no when you have to


Saying yes to everything that you are asked for won’t help so much in progress. You should be aware of how many tasks you can handle.. but also, doing too many tasks even if you think you can do is not as successful as you might think it will be. Focusing on one particular task is much more productive. Set your goal and until you complete it don’t do anything else.


Cut out distractions


Distractions are a serious problem when it comes to productivity. They are coming in different forms, from loud noise in the office to social media. If you are doing something that you are passionate about it wouldn’t be a big deal. You should avoid talking about some interesting topics from your private life while you are working. You need to choose time for your breaks and at that time you can do whatever will make you feel relaxed and ready for the rest of the working day.


Focus on the most difficult thing first


When you focus on the hardest part of the job first it will improve your productivity much more than doing the easiest part of the job and save harder for later. In the morning our head is clear and it will help you when it comes to the most difficult thing because you will have more energy to solve the problem easier. Also, you will feel relaxed and not under the pressure which should make you more productive.


Concentrate on One Thing at a Time


Multi-tasking is not a good idea for productivity. Concentrating on one thing at a time will help you to do more things during the day than focusing on two-three tasks at the same time and not completing them. Of course, some days will be challenging and it’s one of the issues that you will struggle with at times.


Use collaboration tools


There is no better option for increasing productivity than a good team with great communication. There are huge amounts of different collaboration tools around you that can help you to keep your team informed and connected.
