take some time off

This time of year is very busy…whether you are at home or at work. However, those of you who work out side your home have the added “joy” of all kinds of work parties and festivities and the benefits of taking a few holidays and vacation days to spend time with friends and family.

The only problem with all of this “time off” is that you still have deadlines to meet and tasks that need to be accomplished. How will you finish it all? You will need to increase your productivity…and here are a few tips to get you started.

  1. Arrive to work 1 hour earlier. You will be amazed how much you can accomplish when no one else is around.
  2. Pack your own lunch and eat at your desk or in your lunch room. Sack lunches are a great alternative to going out to eat. Plus they save time, money, and your waistline!

It is also important to keep your desk and your workspace organized to promote maximum efficiency. Here are a few tips:

  1. Keep most-often used items within arm’s reach.
  2. Keep less-frequently used items in drawers or on shelves so they don’t clutter you workspace.
  3. Create some sort of filing system for paperwork to eliminate all those piles.

With just a little work upfront, you can increase your productivity and maybe even take a little more time off this holiday season!
