1. Tackle Your Hardest Task When You Work Best
Everyone’s energy level varies during the day. So, observe yours! One example would be Hal Elrod, an author and coach, is an example of a morning person. He prefers to wake up at 5am and complete his work before 12pm. You are most likely to make errors if you are completing tasks when you are tired or not feeling productive.
2. Stay Productive By Building A Supportive Environment
You want to surround yourself in a supportive environment to thrive. This includes both your work and home environments. For the former, engage in meaningful conversations with your team members. Arrange for team bonding activities such as a dinner gathering outside of work, or even team building activities such as a game or two of Laser Tag and Bubble Soccer. Back at home, you want to spend quality time with your loved ones. It is fair to occasionally work extra hours, but making it a way of life is risky. It will be much harder to concentrate if you’re frustrated and have a chaotic environment at home. So, be sure to leave work at a set time every day and spend quality time with your friends and family members. It will not only make you focus better at work but also make you feel more content overall.
We can’t emphasise this enough. It has been proven by researchers that you’re less likely to come up with creative/innovative ideas when you’re exhausted. Furthermore, stress from overworking makes it even harder to achieve effective results and success. This is why facing an overwhelming amount of work often causes one to procrastinate, resulting in unnecessary overtime hours. So don’t be afraid or guilty to take that little break in between to get back in your creative and productive state!
Working hard and burning yourself out are two different things. If you want to grow your business or be better at your business you need to let your employees and yourself have a work-life balance, and their well-deserved rest. The efficiency, productivity and employee satisfaction will definitely improve as well as their individual work ethics and motivation.
