Tips to Accomplish More Work Each Day

Updated on December 2, 2012

Without any doubt you want to accomplish more work in less time. But, how will you do this? If this is what you're longing for, then you must learn to talk less by letting your actions to do the talking. I have come to realize that majority of people who proudly talk more of what they are capable of doing and accomplishing hardly do what they say; they are just mere words without actions. Have you come across such folks?

It is always good to keep your word, don't promise to do something and fail to do it. You will end up losing the trust that people have in you. Always trust your instincts and do what you promise. If you are not able to do it, just be sincere to let others know that you are not able.

Productivity is the amount of goods and services that a person produces in a given amount of time. How much work are you able to do each day? If you have employees, you will be satisfied with them if they do more work efficiently in less time. Such employees will enable your business to grow and you won't want to lose them.

Ten Tips to Do More Work Each Day

There are many things that will enable you to increase what you can accomplish each day. Below is my list of what matters when working to accomplish more each day.

1.) Setting Goals and Having a Plan

Before you think of planning, you should set a goal. Know what you want to achieve. Think in advance before commencing any work. Don't tackle your work in a way that is haphazard. Write down all the tasks of the project to be done based on the goal you have set. Know what is to be done each day, how the tasks will be done, who is to do particular tasks, the time tasks should be done and accomplished.

If you have planned well, you are able to accomplish more work each day unlike when you have no plan in place.

2.) Managing Time

"Time is money" and no person will disagree with this fact. Time is the most valuable thing when it comes to working. Time yourself while working each day. Do not waste your time as it will affect what you are able to accomplish at the end of the day. You have to manage your time effectively so as to accomplish more work each day. You should be able to complete particular tasks within specified period of time. This means that you should have deadlines for doing tasks.

Any client requires you to do quality work within the specified period of time. To maintain your clients and also to acquire new ones, you should be able to complete work before the deadline. You will only be able to do this if you have good time management skills.

3.) Executing One Task at a Time

Do not try to do several things at ago. You will get confused. Do one particular work at a time and once you are through, you can move on to do the next work. Do away with things that will make you to be distracted from doing your work.

4.) Daily To-Do List

By having a daily to-do list, you are able to accomplish more work each day because you know what is to done without skipping any work. The daily to-do list ensures that every task is done at the right time. You'll find that you have done a lot at the end of the day unlike working without a daily to-do list.

5.) Delegating Work

Delegating work to your employees will enable you to accomplish more work each day. Ensure that you have someone taking care of minor tasks while you concentrate doing major tasks. You should not have a mind set of wanting to do everything by yourself because of fearing that your employees will not be able to do work the way you want it to be done.

Of course, there are some tasks that you cannot delegate to your employees as they require you to do them personally. Always delegate work to your employees and ensure they accomplish it within the specified time. However, you remain to be responsible for any work you delegate to your employees.

6.) Taking Care of Health

It is true that "A healthy nation is a productive nation." If you are healthy, you will have a lot of energy and this will enable you to work more each day. Your health is determined by the kind of foods you eat, the kind of environment you are working in and exercises.

You will not be able to work if your health is very poor. You will spend more time treating diseases brought about by poor health and this affects the work you are able to accomplish each day.

In order to accomplish more work each day, you should make sure that you stay healthy by eating a balanced diet, exercising your body more often and working in a favorable environment that inspires you to work hard.

7.) Sufficient Working Space

There should be sufficient space for you to work. Documents should be well organized in order not to waste time and effort searching for a particular document needed.

You will not be calm to work if the working space is insufficient as a result of cluttered files and papers on the desk. Each day documents should be well organized so as to have a sufficient working space that invites you to work effectively.

8.) Sufficient Rest

Your body needs to rest. Do not overwork it to an extent of you experiencing fatigue. You won't be able to work more if you are fatigued. You are not a machine that can work without resting and for this reason you should rest to recover energy.

Rest will refresh your brain which in turn will enable you to concentrate while working. In between work take a few minutes break.

9.) Embracing Technology

Technology enables us to do more work in less time. There are software programs available that you can buy to perform particular work for you. By using new technology, you will be able to accomplish more work each day unlike working manually.

10.) Reducing Boredom

There is a friend of mine who told me that he is able to reduce boredom and do more work if he plays soft music. Playing soft music while working avoids boredom and makes a person to be cheerful especially if the work done is monotonous.

What about you, what makes you to do more work each day?

      Your suggestions on health and rest are key in getting work done. If you cannot focus due to lack of rest and poor health, you will not set good goals with clear focus. Well done.
