The Best Behaviors that Lead to Office Productivity
Most of my time as a productivity specialist is spent showing clients systems that will help them become more productive. It didn't take me long to realize that even the best systems in the world won't help someone become more productive unless they employ certain behaviors. This article will identify some of these behaviors.
- Create a weekly/daily to-do list and stick to it. If you don't complete something on the list, revaluate the task and either reassign it or eliminate it.
- Be consistent in establishing productive behaviors. Daily and weekly planning will help with this. Try to establish new behaviors that you can easily repeat.
- Follow through on all tasks which include responding to email, phone calls, completing projects.
- Re-evaluate your behaviors regularly, probably weekly is best. Continue what works and stop doing what doesn't.
- Be open to change.
- Try to keep a balance in all behaviors. Stress is created when you get out of balance.
- Minimize as many distractions as possible. Close the office door, post a sign on the door, let others know of your availability to answer questions or meet with them. Schedule times to check email and don't respond to the audio message of new mail.
