When you’re feeling stressed about your TO DO list, multitasking is one of the worst things you can do.
These five tips will help you stay productive;
1. Learn to properly prioritize.
This is not as easy as it sounds. Figure out what your real priorities are through a process of clarification
and communication. E.g. Design & sales
2. Practice “Serial Monofocus” instead of multitasking.
Do one task at a time with maximum concentration .e.g sales force, contracts preparation etc
3. Don’t always be available
Throughout the day we encounter interruptions that waste our time e.g. phone calls, text messages, and
consultations from colleagues. Avoid and tell the person to call or come back later.
4. Communicate your plans when you’re not available.
When you’ve decided that you need some time to be off the grid, you should inform others.
5. Identify time wasters
Pinpoint them and ask yourself why you do them and for what. Then you can curb those habits and
become more productive.
