Getting more done in a day

One of the major sources of work stress is the inability to get things done.


One of the major sources of work stress is the inability to get things done. Few things feel as empowering as being able to tick everything off your list, so you can go home. How can you boost your productivity?

Take action:
Face your chair away from the door – this will discourage people from dropping by to make small talk when you’re trying to work; close your door – when you really need to finish off a report, put the wood in the hole and unplug the phone; stare at the horizon every so often – if you spend your days watching your monitor at work and your TV screen at home, you’re depriving your eyes and the muscles that control their focus of the opportunity to focus on infinity; go through everything on your desk and file it, pass it on or bin it – start each day with a clean desk and a clean coffee mug.
