10 Top Productivity Tips
We all have the same amount of time in a week, but it's how you approach it that makes the different. Streamlining your tasks and focusing on productivity will help you to get more done in less time.

Here are some top tips from the Experts :

  1. Tackle your least desirable tasks first – get them out of the way so that they don't weigh on you while you're doing the more pleasant tasks.
  2. Empower your Employees – when they feel like they're all equally important parts of the team, company morale and productivity go up. Don't micro-manage – let them get on with the jobs you hired them to do.
  3. Quit social media – it really is a time sink, and you don't need to know what your friend had for lunch.
  4. Immediately tackle simple tasks as they come in – apply the five-minute rule and if it's going to take less time than that, get it done.
  5. Find a remote workspace – getting out of the office for one day a week boosts creativity and prevents burnout. Make it a practice for your whole team.
  6. Disconnect from technology during crunch time – when you really need to knuckle down and concentrate, shut down email, the internet, and turn your phone to airplane mode. And don't forget to shut your office door.
  7. Take a break – it seems counter-intuitive, but taking time to rest, eat and drink something can make you more productive, because your brain is refreshed.
  8. Schedule your email time – you really don't have to reply to every email as it comes in. Take charge of your technology; don't let it be in charge of you.
  9. Take a Sabbath – at least one day a week should be completely work-free. You owe it to yourself to have some downtime, some time to relax and recharge.
  10. Prepare on Sunday nights – check your appointments for the week ahead, read through any notes, ensure everything is prepared so that you head into Monday in a calm frame of mind.
