6 Tips to Help You Work Faster

When you have a heavy workload, it can feel as though there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done. Tight schedules, lengthy to-do lists and firm deadlines are often a non-negotiable part of any endeavor, but the stressors can even contribute to mental overwhelm and set you back despite your best efforts. Work inevitably piles up sometimes, and it can leave you feeling like there is no way you’ll be able to get it all done. However, there is always hope. You don’t have to work harder, or put in any more hours in order to get your work done faster. It’s all about making smart choices to give yourself the best chance at success. To get your work done with both accuracy and haste, without sacrificing any more time or putting in energy you simply don’t have, check out these tips.


  1. Make a List

One major roadblock to success is a lack of organization, and this affects even the most meticulous of people. It isn’t always necessary to schedule your day down to the minute, but the more you are able to visualize and plan out your time, the better you’ll be able to track your progress, set up timelines for yourself and understand the urgency or lack thereof with certain tasks. Whether you have to reconfigure videos and export After Effects to mp4 files or you need to change the font styles in an entire presentation, jot down the main ideas as well as smaller tasks you need to get done to complete it as a whole.

  1. Get Up Early

In the world of work, the early bird certainly does get the worm. Many people come home at the end of each day and unwind, but may stay up later than necessary, which can leave you feeling groggy and overtired when it’s time to wake up in the morning. Instead of hitting snooze on your morning alarm, try getting up a little earlier to have a few more hours of productivity. The earlier you get things done when your brain is at its freshest, the less you’ll have to do later on–and the earlier you can unwind and go to bed at night. 


  1. Remove Distractions

Your attention is a limited resource, and if you find yourself pulled in several mental directions at once, it’s time to clear your head and your space. It’s simple to remove distracting objects from your workspace, such as phones, tablets, books, magazines or apps, but it’s a little more complicated to manage other distractions. Some find it helpful to take period breaks to breathe deeply, recenter their attention and throw on a pair of noise canceling headphones to help them focus on the next stretch of work. 


  1. Start Big

Difficult projects can be daunting, and it’s little wonder why many put them lower on their list of priorities. However, when you tackle the hard stuff first, everything else will seem easy in comparison. The relief of completing a more labor-intensive task can even put you in a good mood that will help you breeze through the smaller, less demanding projects you have on your plate. 


  1. Learn to Say No

Sometimes, the reason you can’t seem to be able to get anything done is because you really do have too much for one person to do. If you find yourself taking on more than you can handle, it’s time to take a closer look at how many offers you reject vs how many you accept. When your plate is full, it’s okay to let people know that you’re too busy to take on anything else at that time. If you’re uncomfortable turning offers down, start small. The more you practice, the easier it will become. 


  1. Avoid Multitasking

Contrary to popular belief, multitasking is an incredibly inefficient way to approach your work. When you consider your brain as a finite storehouse of your daily energy, any task you decide to split with another at the same time will never get your full attention. Try to stick to one thing at a time so you can really dive in and give it your all. Not only will this help speed things up, but you won’t spend any of your precious energy on the transition between one thing and another.
