Batch your meetings - Deepstash

Batch your meetings

Research found we get 22% less work done when we have a meeting coming up in the next hour or two.

Consider creating rules around your schedule. Batching emails, calls, meetings, or virtual events can leave a longer timespan for you to focus on work without distractions.

A study found that most people lose about two seconds per minute of work using their mouse instead of keyboard shortcuts. That amounts to eight days a year.

Learning keyboard shortcuts can increase your productivity. Most software shares the same shortcuts - learning a few shortcuts will make you faster.

We are all writers. Our success at work or school is partly determined by our ability to communicate through email, reports, projects, and maybe articles or books.

Reading your work out loud makes it easier to test if it sounds right. It helps to make your writing clearer, exact, and more impactful.

Small behavioural hacks can assist in better working habits and lead to huge payoffs.

Consider what habits you want to change, then modify your environment to support those behaviours. For example, if you want to read more, keep books or your kindle next to your bed and put your phone further away. If you want to check social media less often, delete those apps from your phone.

Know your worth

When starting out as a freelancer, it can be challenging to know where to price yourself based on your knowledge and your skills in the market. To work this out, we suggest you:

  • Find your niche. This is the value freelancers bring to many companies to help meet their needs. Once they’ve developed an area of expertise, they need to learn how to communicate their value, clearly and concisely. 
  • Learn the market. After all, there’s no fun in marketing a skill that nobody wants. 
  • Monetize your skills. It’s no good freelancing if you can’t make money. Turn your talents into products or services that people can buy. 
  • Tap into your confidence. Know that what you can offer is crucial and own it. Most
