5 Tips To Help Get Task Done Easier And More Efficiently
There are days that I struggle to get a task done and I end up procrastinating really bad. So here are some tips that I take into mind when I need to complete a task or a project.
Take Your time
Take time to do task. It’ll be easier and you have a better chance at making less mistakes. It won’t be as stressful and don’t worry so much about how long it will take to complete, just come up with an idea to make it more enjoyable to complete.
Focus only on the task at hand
I don’t believe in multitasking. When we’re given multiple tasks that need to be completed in a certain amount of time, all it’s doing to us is causing us to stress out more. Sort out task by priority and manage to get the high priority task done first, that way the low priority will come simpler to you.
Asking for help
We should all be able to ask for help. Ask for help when your finding difficultly completed a task or unable to do so. In a work environment everything should always be a team effort.
So make sure you voice your struggles to your boss. They should always be open to helping you. But I will warn you do not take advantage of this. Don’t ask for help if you’re capable of doing this but don’t want to do it. Just tell your boss or ask somebody else if they can do 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.
Create a schedule, making sure to have a time or date set. Say you are trying to clean out the garage. Set a time of 4 hours a day at the exact same time.
Next step would be to commit to the schedule. Starting with the hardest part of the task will get it out of the way faster.
Don’t put off anything or else you may not come back and finish it. Have in mind when you want to complete it and tell people about.
When you tell people about a goal or task that you have in mind, the more people you tell the more accountability you’ll have towards yourself.
I hope these tips helped! What helps gets a task done quicker and more efficiently?
