How to Get More Done in Your Work Day

Monday, February 06, 2017

We’ve all been there. We get to work with the intention of ploughing through our to-do-list, only to get distracted by social media, incoming emails, and photos of our office mate’s new puppy. If you’re looking to get more done in the day, follow these tips, courtesy of Laura Stack with

Give disruptions the boot. Resist the urge to constantly check email turning off your notifications. Put your cell phone on airplane mode, instant messaging on Do Not Disturb and let calls roll over to voicemail.

Cut down on meetings. Cancel meetings if face time isn't imperative and give colleagues more time to get their jobs done. Also, try to schedule one day a week on your calendar that is meeting-free.

Practice "on, in, around or shred." Eight-eight percent of people use paper in the office. Cut the clutter by keeping items you work with daily on your desk, weekly items in your desk drawers and monthly items around your desk, in archives or filing cabinets. Use an automatic shredder for everything else.
