Create a To Do List
This is a great way to organize and prioritize in your mind what are the tasks to do, why you’re doing them, and in what order. Giving yourself transparency and clarity on the tasks to do is the first step in tackling the tasks. You cannot work effectively if you don’t know what the work is.
Some may disagree, but multitasking is actually inefficient for many. By focusing on 1 individual task at a time, you can catch any errors or problems that may arise which would then make the project take even longer. This also circles back to our first point of creating a To Do list - make sure your prioritization is not terribly dependent upon eachother. Nothing feels worse than finishing Task 5 and realizing that you had to redo Task 1.
Turn off notifications & distractions
With all of the constant notifications in our lives from ads, the news, and even the people around you, a great way to get your work done faster is by removing notifications. Whether your work is in software or handling machinery, noisy irrelevant notifications increase risks (sometimes dangerously) and impede productivity. The goal is to be done with work sooner, so you have time to enjoy doing what you love.
