Tips To Ensure Maximum Productivity For Home Working


Whether working you have recently started working from home more, or you are setting up your own home business, being able to work in a productive way is vital. 

You want to ensure that your work gets done and you can still maintain a balance of being able to relax and enjoy your ‘home-time’ without having to spend additional time catching up in the evening. 


Here is how to maximise your productivity:


Have A List

Start your day off with a list of your daily tasks. You can then prioritise them into an order of importance. You know yourself and when you are most productive naturally. If you find yourself lacking a little in the afternoon, set aside those easier and less strenuous jobs for that time of the day. 


That way you are using your time to the best of your ability and maximising your productivity.  


Have The Equipment You Need

No matter how productive you are, if you don’t have the equipment you need or it isn’t working to maximum capacity you will never reach your productivity peak. 


Completing tasks such as routinely clean install macos, free up space on your computer or laptop and run tests to make sure that your computer is slowing you down with your activities. 


Having equipment such as a headset can make you more productive. Instead of having to speak on the phone and then type notes or write after the call, you can complete these tasks simultaneously. 


Be Organised

A cluttered desk leads to a cluttered mind. Keeping unnecessary items out of the way will help you keep focused on the task in-hand and will support you from getting distracted. 


Having items in a clear, set and organised way will also ensure that you are able to find what you need when you need it. Once you start getting organised you will find that your productivity increases as you are no longer spending as long trying to locate documents or items. 


Don’t Multitask

You might think that carrying out three jobs all at the same time would make you more productive. This is not the case. When you multitask you are actually more likely to spend a longer amount of time getting the task completed. That is because you're not able to apply your full attention to it. 


Flitting in and out of tasks not only means you are spending more time in completing it, but you are also more likely to make mistakes or errors. With errors and mistakes comes more work. You will then have to rectify them and lose more precious time doing so. 


Make Sure You Take Breaks

Taking a break from your work will make you more productive. When spending prolonged periods of time working and looking at your computer screen you will find your attention span decreasing. Taking regular breaks and getting away from the screen will make you more productive and will allow you to regain your focus upon returning to your desk and task.
