Tired of not getting things on time? Sick of being unproductive because of all the distractions If you are going through such situation then go through the following time wasters and see how you can avoid them.
Your productivity can suffer a lot if you will not keep yourself away from your mobile and Instant messaging. Though IM is a good intra-office tool but it often works against you than for you. Many times a harmless work related discussion escalates to a hot gossip!
If you want to avoid this then log off all your IM clients when working, keep your mobile in your drawer.
Sending Unnecessary Emails
Emails are one of the best ways to communicate but addiction to emails brings your productivity level down. Many times this easy communication becomes a time waster.
Avoid inter office emails; go discuss it face to face. If not then call them up after the work.
Getting together for a meeting to discuss everything that needs to be discussed in the next meeting is a bad idea and defiantly a waste of time.
Every meeting needs to have a purpose and a well defined goal. Progressive people never waste time n useless meetings and you shouldn’t too.
Multi tasking is helpful and good but this can also go wrong if you do it poorly. There is a certain limit to the things you can do or manage. If you exceed the limit you end up wasting time while your work quality gets affected.
Prioritize your tasks and know what needs to be done when. The better you get at setting priorities, the better you get at multitasking.
