Leaving late from office surely doesn’t mean you are working hard or working more. It surely says that you are not managing your work and time properly. If you are an MBA student managing your time efficiently is one of the key skill you need to acquire. If you are struggling to complete your work and manage your time, here are the top 5 tips which will help you succeed.
To Do List
Most of us have many works which needs to be completed over the day. The best way to get them all done is by creating a ‘To Do List’. Yes, prepare a list so that you do not miss on important work. When you are done with the work, simply tick the list off your list to ensure a sincere execution of your work. Make it first thing in the morning and if there are any pending works from the previous day add it to your list so that the work is completed without any delay.
One of the major reason for not being able to manage time efficiently is surely because of the intervention of technology. Yes, every day we receive mails, messages, phone calls and even whatsapp conversation, which often breaks the concentration while we are working. Even though communication is important, but you do not have to attend every phone call or mails immediately. Simply check your mail, whatsapp or phone calls every one or two hours to stay focused. And yes, avoid using social media at workplace to enhance your work efficiency.
Clutter Can Matter
If you are one of them whose table is a complete mess with files, papers and everything scattered on the desk, well you need to clear them. A cluttered desk can lead to low productivity as it often breaks the concentration of the person working on the desk. Finding an object, file or paper from a cluttered desk can also require a lot of time, hence cleaning and organizing your desk is very important for a productive day at work.
Learn to Prioritize
This is one of the utmost quality which you need to have to finish your work on time. You do not have to complete everything on the same day or at the first half of the day. Learn to prioritize your work and then start working on them. Stay focused and don’t let any new addition hassle you for an easy and perfect execution of the work.
Shut the Door
If you work in a cabin that people barge in now and then, it is okay to shut the door for some hours, especially if you are working on something that requires immense amount of concentration and focus.
