Work Smarter in 2020

From committing to exercise to vowing to make more time for yourself, 2020 can be the year you conquer your goals. A new year is also an opportunity to reflect on your career and figure out some ways you could work smarter than ever.

Multitasking is a myth.

Working on several tasks at one time can feel productive and rewarding. In reality, multiple studies have confirmed that this makes you less efficient. Focus on a single task at a time and optimize your focus.

Time your tasks.

Identify the tasks you need to complete and determine how long each task should take. Set a timer with however long you think you need to complete the assignment and work on it until time is up. This will help prioritize your to-do list and avoid distractions.

Track your successes – and failures.

Analyze when things go right and wrong. Every task is an opportunity to address any issues you may have faced, in order to avoid making the same one next time. It’s also important to acknowledge when you succeed and keep your morale high as the year progresses.
