Time Management

116 STASHED IDEAS

An alternative to working remotely at home is to Work From Near Home (WFNH), where household work, kids, familiar noise and many other causes of stress that distract us from our official tasks are absent. It can be a small rented office, cafe, or company provided coworking space.

Companies can even make a small up-front investment for the employee to work from near home and reap great rewards with visibly increased productivity.

The productivity guru loves to-do lists and working systematically. They thrive while working on many projects at the same time. They take pride in their organisational skills but don't handle it well if something doesn't go as planned.

All people within this personality category should keep doing what they are doing but try to be more flexible and adaptive to changes.

Shorter deadlines force us to focus on what’s important: 20 percent of tasks that bring about 80 percent of the results.

Deadlines and time constraints are not our enemies, but a way to help our mind get to work creatively. Set realistic goals and give them short deadlines. Most of the unnecessary work will get eliminated by design. This also helps to plan your days in advance, making sure that we don’t kill time doing unnecessary stuff.

  1. Prioritize high-impact tasks that actually matter. These tasks should be 80 per cent of what we do.
  2. As for choosing a task, find the meaning and purpose behind it, and then connect to it.
  3. Focus on one small task at a time, not doing any multitasking and becoming fully one with the task at hand.
  4. Break down big tasks into smaller tasks.
  5. Let go of the narratives that are causing fear and anxiety, most of which are false and are adding unnecessary worry to your day. Simply pop them like a soap bubble!
  6. Focus with full presence, gratitude and meaning.
Deliberate practice
It is a focused attempt to improve at a task that “also involves the provision of immediate feedback, time for problem‐solving and evaluation, and opportunities for repeated performance to refine behavior."
