While dealing with our busy schedules at workplace, we often tend to neglect the little requirements of our body and mind. For instance, being regular with your water intake, or giving your mind little peaceful breaks when you leave behind your loads and worries.
Well, the fact is that irrespective of the pressure that you put on yourself, progress is never directly proportional to pressure. You’ve got to do hard work for sure, but you need to be smart as well. Only a healthy mind and body can have the taste of success for which you work day and night.
Let us offer you few tips and tricks with which you can combine your hard work with smart work. This way, not only will you increase your potential, but you will feel healthy enough to do more. Take a look!
Do first thing first
Prioritising yourself is the best way with which you can get your stuff done easily. You don’t have to juggle between too many things at one time. The best way to get everything done is to do first thing first. With one thing sorted at one time, you will have little accomplishments frequently. And remember, these little accomplishments lead to big successes.
You must have read tons of articles asking you to organise yourself and make to-do lists a night before you start your day. A to-do list is a great way with which you can plan as to how things should be done. You don’t always need a copy and a pen to sit and write down your schedule. Rather, in this digital era, there are so many apps with which you can plan your schedule just in your smartphone. Always make sure that things with utmost priority should be written on the top and things with less priority should be at the bottom. An important note for whomsoever reading this article is that health and diet should be among your utmost priorities.
Yes, working for an organisation doesn’t mean that only that organisation is responsible to reward your work. You too should reward yourself when you complete an assignment on time or meet a deadline. This reward can be anything – your favourite dish that you would want to grab in lunch, or an episode of your favourite web-series or may be a little nap if you love to sleep. Choose whatever you like.
Stick to what you decide
One of the most important reasons that limits people from getting things done is they don’t stick to what they decide. Making lists and planning about your schedules is half of the job and is secondary. Your primary motive should be your actions. No assignment can be completed on its own. You need to take actions and that too on time so that you finish your task on time. After all, you are rewarding yourself only because you completed things and not because you planned them. Take a serious note on this point and follow the rest.
