Orangeville, ON (My Corner Office) Try these tips for becoming more productive.

Develop a Personal Mission Statement
Well-defined goals and values are essential to create a successful strategy. This will help you stick with it.

Set Realistic Timelines and Expectations
Deadlines or tasks that seem manageable under ideal conditions can present difficulties. Unforeseen obstacles or even an unplanned sick day can derail your efforts. Give yourself a personal deadline and strive to meet that.

Be Proactive in Planning
Taking 10 minutes before you leave work to rank tasks will save you up to an hour the next day.

Become a Diligent Note-taker
Writing things down improves your memory. Keep a pencil and notepad handy at your desk and at every meeting – even if you bring your laptop.

Learn What’s Urgent and What’s Important
Urgent tasks are what you react to. Important tasks are what guide you. Make sure that you’re not focusing on the urgent tasks. It is better to plan for and do the important tasks.
