Tips to Make Getting Through Your Workday More Manageable - Carol Evenson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

Tips to Make Getting Through Your Workday More Manageable

Sometimes, everyone may feel as though there’s simply too much to do in a day. Feeling overwhelmed certainly never helps matters. Usually, it can make things seem considerably worse. Some smart planning and making use of some tools to stay organized will help you make the workday more productive for both yourself and your colleagues.

Tackle Your Toughest Agenda Items First

People often may make the mistake of trying to work on the easiest things that they need to do in a day first thing. However, a common practice of highly productive people is taking on the hardest items first. Generally, it’s good to work on more challenging items while you’re still fresh and before you’re beleaguered by distractions and unexpected challenges that may develop throughout your workday. After you’ve crossed the toughest stuff off of your to-do-list, the easier items will feel like a breeze.

Streamline Your Workflow

Using workflow automation software makes moving from one task to the next simpler and more intuitive. It helps to assure that everything is done accurately and completely, and nothing gets overlooked. Furthermore, it centralizes information about what has been done so it’s easy to stay up to date on what’s happening.

Don’t Skip Supervisory Meetings

Taking the time to meet with your supporting staff may present a burden to an already busy day. Nevertheless, touching base with the people who you supervise regularly helps to assure that they stay on track. In addition, it’s a good setting for them to get answers to all their important questions. Regularly scheduled meetings with staff creates a set time when people can ask questions and makes them less likely to interrupt you when you need to be focusing on something else.

Take Breaks

Trying to power through a busy day at full speed may make you feel totally drained of energy before the day is even half-over. You have to pace yourself. Getting up and taking a quick break is a good way to recharge and regroup. It may seem counterintuitive, but taking breaks supports productivity by making it easier for you to stay mentally sharp and avoid burnout. It’s also worth considering that breaks support your physical well-being. Staying seated too long can be surprisingly hard on your body. Getting up and stretching can get your blood circulating and your joints moving so that you can prevent fatigue and soreness.

Use Ergonomic Office Equipment

There’s no doubt that physical discomfort can be an impediment to productivity. Even worse, it can lead to serious occupational injuries. Investigate office equipment that can spare you from discomfort and injury such as repetitive motion strains. You might even consider having a specialist evaluate your current setup to make recommendations about how to change it for the better.

Don’t Be Afraid to Delegate

It’s typical that people with strong work ethics aren’t quick to hand off any part of their workload. They commonly want to do everything themselves. Nevertheless, being prepared to delegate is a good way to be able to focus your attention where it most needs to go. Identify what you can let go of, who would be the best people to handle it, and how you can support them to help ensure that the task gets done correctly.

Evaluate What You Can Outsource

Many different types of businesses can benefit from outsourcing some of their administrative activities. If logistical administration is taking up too much of your workday or other staff’s time, outsourcing may be a practical and cost-effective way to enhance efficiency. It’s reasonable to expect that establishing a relationship with a third-party service provider will involve a little extra time while you get going. Nevertheless, it can save you a lot of time and make your workdays much easier in the long run.

 

Putting some time and thought towards improving the structure of your workdays will make them seem a lot less overwhelming. Prioritize changes that can eliminate stress while maximizing productivity.
