Transcript of "5 Top Tips for Working Smarter"

  1. 1. InterQuest Group’s 5 Top Tips for Working Smarter
  2. 2. PRIORITISE 1 TASKS ASSESS ALL OF THE TASKS THAT YOU NEED TO COMPLETE, PRIORITISING THEM BY WHICH ONES NEED TO BE ADDRESSED AND HOW MUCH WORK WILL BE INVOLVED. TRY TO KEEP ALL OF YOUR TASKS LISTED IN ORDER OF THEIR IMPORTANCE AND THE TIME FRAME THAT THEY NEED ADDRESSING.
  3. 3. AVOID MULTITASKING 2 TRY TO FOCUS ON ONE TASK AT A TIME. IT IS EASY TO BECOME DISTRACTED BY OTHER TASKS IN YOUR WORKLOAD AND TO START MULTITASKING, BUT THE BEST RESULTS WILL COME FROM GIVING EACH TASK YOUR FULL CONCENTRATION AND TICKING THEM OFF YOUR LIST ONE BY ONE. THIS WILL ENABLE YOU TO BUILD MOMENTUM AND GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WORK TOWARDS EACH SPECIFIC TASK.
  4. 4. 3 SET DEADLINES TIME MANAGEMENT PLAYS A BIG PART IN WORKING SMARTER. FOR THIS REASON IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO DIVIDE A BIG PROJECT OR TASK INTO MANAGEABLE SECTIONS THAT YOU CAN THEN SET YOURSELF DEADLINES FOR. YOUR OWN DEADLINES SHOULD BE ACHIEVABLE AND MADE WITH THE OVERALL PROJECT IN MIND.
  5. 5. 4 STAY ORGANISED KEEPING ORGANISED MIGHT SOUND OBVIOUS, BUT IT IS EASY TO FORGET IN A BUSY WORKING ENVIRONMENT. BEING ORGANISED SHOULD INCLUDE EVERYTHING FROM KEEPING YOUR DESK TIDY TO USING YOUR OUTLOOK CALENDAR FOR MEETINGS AND USING SEPARATE FOLDERS FOR EMAILS. ORGANISATION IS KEY TO MANAGING A BUSY WORKLOAD.
