STAYING ON YOUR A-GAME: #2
Practical Quick Tips for Staying Productive at Work
Not letting Work Catch you Off-Guard
By: Allan Vayman
On your drive to work envision how your day will unfold based on the prioritized tasks ahead of you. Play some music that gets you motivated as you think these thoughts. Envision the tactful interactions that must take place with management to move agendas forward. Picture the emails in your inbox, how you will systematically reply to them one-by-one so that all stakeholders are aware of your status. This kind of start to your day will help you hit the ground running, gaining you a reputation for being ‘on the ball’ with those whom you work.
If you find yourself storming into the office half the days of the week, late for meetings and ‘just missing’ deadlines, consider an alternative way to structure your morning. Redesign your morning so that your morning works for you, sailing you into work as planned.
By now you’ve already witnessed the negative cascading effect running late can have on your schedule… Now imagine strolling into the office at a leisurely pace, heart rate steady, feeling like you are in control of how your day will unfold. What a difference this daily pattern can make not only to your outlook, but also your overall health and wellbeing.
