To achieve efficiency in working
In our time we are used to live in very competitive and advanced working culture surrounding us. To make quick and remarkable progress we must have a good strategy with clear understanding of all substances around us. There may be plenty of workloads on us but if we can adopt smart working it will reduce burden as well as give us recognition of an achiever in eyes of our colleagues and peers. A lot is needed indeed to outshine our competitors by far margin and in order to stand alone from the rest of the crowd. Our working strengths depend on our health. If we can fix time for Yoga, meditation and other physical exercise in the morning it refreshes throughout the day and won’t make us tired till end of the day.
Apart from hard working virtue, inter personal skills also help you to deliver more.

Good and cordial relations with immediate boss matter a lot in smart working in office. While prioritizing things put all the tasks on top what boss has desired. Keep ready your suggestions on each task given by the boss. Wherever you feel even a little space of improvement, do that and don’t hesitate to put forward your suggestions how the things can be done better and more efficiently henceforth. Keep all the things precisely and appropriately ready before your boss in every meeting.
Make the optimum use of your resources. While working with your subordinates communicate properly and plan the things well prior to execution. Delegate your tasks well among them as per their merits.

Keep a good feedback mechanism of all tasks given to them and ask their suggestions for further improvements in the processes. Finalize the key results areas (KRA) and give them feasible targets to achieve. Motivate them and create an atmosphere of competition and enthusiasm among them.
