For many workers, making the most of their time during the day is top priority. Sometimes many distractions can throw you off and distract you from your goal. Deadlines loom, and it’s best to make the most of time in order to meet them.
Focusing on more than one task at a time can be unavoidable in a plight to get a job done or several projects completed. And the day can get quite busy and hectic, leaving workers stressed out and frazzled.
Brazen Careerist offers four tips to effectively multitask and accomplish what you need to with less difficulty.
No wandering: Throughout your busy day, keep your mind on the job at hand. This sounds obvious, but it’s more difficult than it appears, especially if you’re thinking about a side project. How often do you start doing one thing, only to find yourself doing another?
Make a list at the start of the day and stick to it. Keep trucking, keep your important appointments and hit your deadlines. If you accomplish what you set out to do, you’ll feel more in control at the end of the workday and better equipped to deal with your personal projects in the evening.
Treat your personal project with military precision — but not on work time: You’ve got to make time (yes, make time) to sort out your personal projects. Whether that’s updating your blog, planning a going-away party or starting your own business, get it done after office hours.
