It’s every worker’s dream – whether you’re your own boss, work from home or are employed by a person or company – to get everything done when it needs to be done.

Yet, you can agree that at times it’s hard to be productive, especially with the amount of tasks that need to be done. Productivity isn’t something that comes naturally; it has to be developed and maintained. However, have you genuinely sat and thought about how you can be more productive? If so, then this article is for you! Let’s look at a five ways that you can increase your productivity on the job.

  1. When in doubt communicate – It might seem simple, but accurate communication could save you hours of remedial work or even spare you from redoing your task completely – two things that exceptionally productive people rarely do. Therefore, it’s important to ask questions, and ensure that you’re 100% clear on your assignments. The first rule of thumb is this: “It’s better to over communicate than under communicate.”
  2. Never bite off more than you can chew – Allocating yourself a mountain of tasks to do within a single work day doesn’t make you seem more productive, it’s actually inhibiting you from moving forward. Be realistic about your expectations of yourself. Failing to meet self-applied deadlines can actually be detrimental to your productivity and your view of yourself.
  3. Get more done in the morning – It’s proven that we work better in the morning hours, so it should be your aim to do as much as you can in the period before the afternoon. We’re all familiar with that feeling of exhaustion that starts to appear around 2pm, and the quality of your work shouldn’t have to suffer because of it.
  4. What you eat is actually quite important – What you eat before, during and after working hours can be the difference between being a star worker and falling behind on your deadlines. Healthy is the way to go, and incorporating natural energy boosters in your diet can make a world of difference.
  5. If you’ve got a big task, break it down into smaller segments – It might seem more sensible to attack the biggest task head on, but that isn’t so. Just thinking about the magnitude of what you have to do could intimidate you and make you put it off for when you have “more time”. Breaking one big task into smaller more manageable segments contributes to a more productive day
