Importance of Digital Workspaces

'Digital workspace' refers to the virtual applications and sevrices that you use to get your work done. While employees and students may not have a ton of control over their physical workspaces, they do have quite a bit over their digital ones.

Just like physical workplaces, organisation and fixed systems can help boost one's efficiency in doing work with digital tools.

  1. Add as much as you can into the system. You can email yourself things to do, or put them in your calendar, or take quick notes, or take a picture.
  2. Process it all as fast as you can. Anything you don't need to deal with right now, either mark it done or snooze it for later.

Make planning a habit

Some mornings we feel motivated to create a to-do list, but that is often the exception. We need to get things done, even when we feel disengaged.

Start by setting the alarm for your daily planning session at the same time every day. Tack your new daily planning session onto an existing habit like drinking your morning coffee.

1. Have a single purpose.

“Focus on what matters most”. When we prioritise one single thing at a time it is easier to manage and complete to a good standard, instead of spreading our efforts over multiple endeavours. It is now proven that multi tasking is a passè.
