Avoiding Chaos While You Work
Have you ever had a day where
every moment seems busy, but
nothing gets done? You try to
complete a project only to let
the chaos overwhelm You. I
recently searched several
articles to find tips that may
help us each focus.
The most common tip
suggests we plan our day. Figure
out which tasks are critical.
Break up the tasks into
manageable sections or blocks.
Some experts expand the time
allowed for each block by 40% to
compensate for disruptions.
Focus On One Thing
trying to multi-task and focus
on one thing. Dedicate yourself
to completing that single task.
Allow yourself to be distracted
only by urgent or unavoidable
tasks. Once the distraction is
complete, return to complete the
office does not have a door,
look for a quiet place to work.
Let others in your office know
you need to focus. Headphones
can create a silent atmosphere
and let others know you do not
wish to be distracted. Turn off
notifications to avoid stopping
and starting projects. Avoid
responding on cue, and set aside
time to answer calls and emails.
If missing an important call
from your boss or loved ones
bothers you, try Do Not Disturb
mode. iOS and Android offer Do
Not Disturb mode, which allows
you to accept priority calls
while delaying others.
Take breaks when
you need them. Some experts
suggest working for blocks of
time ranging from 20 to 90
minutes. Take a short break
after each block. Managing your
time helps you manage projects.
work environment as comfortable
as possible. Adjust the
temperature, music, lighting and
seating to minimize distraction.
If you share your work space,
respect the comfort of others.
These tips rose to the top
of my search and should help
avoid the chaos that comes with
everyday distractions. We all
need to adjust for urgent or
surprise events, but returning
to task as soon as possible can
help. Avoiding the chaos makes
work more enjoyable and helps us
become more productive.
