5 Tips To Help Get Task Done Easier And More Efficiently
Completing tasks can come as a burden when we have much more better things we could be doing. These tips will help you anywhere. At home or at work.
Depending on what I want to do versus what I need to do. I always make sure I try to get an early start. When I need to completely a task that I know I won’t have time do mainly at work. I come in about 30 minutes to two hours early, just to get a head start. That way it won’t interfere with what I need to get done during my normal hours and if need be I’ll stay late to finish up.
Starting early helps reduce stress and the feeling of being rushed. Our focus can remain on one priority for the moment and when need be we can return to it during our down time.
Focus only on the task at hand
I will admit I am absolutely horrible for this. I don’t like being given multiple tasks at once and this is something I’m still trying to work on because it can be non-intentional. The current task can start to sprout into smaller tasks and it can be somewhat gruesome to complete alone and in an efficient manner. But as long as you focus on the main part the rest it should be easy to complete in no time at all.
So when I come into work early I always make sure to stay focused on what needs to get done. At times I realize documents are missing essential information and I’ll have to stop to go to the correct department to retrieve it, but I always make sure to return to what I was originally doing.
Asking for help
If your finding a task difficult to completely try asking someone to take on another part of it. In a work environment, this should be very easy to do. For one a lot of companies enjoy using the term “Team” so as a team it’s necessary to help each other out. Once each of you complete your parts bring it back together and complete it.
Split the task into Interval
Splitting tasks into intervals will help you control different portions and prevent work overload.
Four audits a day is a requirement at my job. I will admit it can be a struggle to complete each audit when I have other tasks to complete.
So I split each audit into two hour intervals. It helps a lot. You’ll most definitely have better focus.
Between certain times that there is another task that needs to be completed. So make sure to keep those times available.
Creating a schedule has helped me when it comes to blogging. I literally have a written plan for the week on what to work on with my blog. It gives me a visual and it’s constant reminder of what my currently objective is. So instead of working about writing a blog post, promoting it, etc… I have different days for different things. Monday’s could be updating blog posts and that would just be that. Nothing more and so forth.
I hope these tips helped! What helps gets a task done quicker and more efficiently?
