Develop a Philosophy to Maximize Productivity in the Workplace

Having a company philosophy that employees can follow will help to maintain productivity in the workplace.

To attain the maximum productivity in the workplace the employees need a clear vision of where the company is headed. We may hear about certain companies fostering a particular philosophy or culture about the office, but rarely are we presented with any real explanation as to what this means. The result is that many start-up companies underestimate the importance of such a focus, and their businesses suffer as a result. There are two main advantages to a company adhering to a particular philosophy.

Focus

The business world is filled with opportunities. The temptation is always there to invest, but the difficulty comes when deciding how to distribute the pot of money. All too often, a company will spread itself far too thin; they will make investments left, right and center without any real direction, and so will step outside of their area of expertise. By adopting a particular philosophy, we are able to bring a degree of structure to this process; we are no longer faced with a random array of options.

Employee Engagement

It is well documented that employees who enjoy their jobs are far more likely to maintain productivity in the workplace. Choosing a philosophy for the company to adhere to certainly facilitates this. When a company has a certain set of aims that are known to the employees, it provides guidance when problems arise. It also enables the employees to buy into the company; they can see the direction that the company is hoping to go in and so will know the role that they are playing.

Do not fall foul of the mistake that perennially affects businesses; choose a philosophy and stick to it! Your company’s productivity in the workplace will benefit from it.

Morning Routine

What allows for a stable mind that can increase productivity in the workplace, are daily routines that tune you into. There is a certain level of productivity that you gain when you are tuned into yourself and focused on what you want to achieve. Get into the habit of waking up very early in the morning and calming yourself. Read an inspirational passage or if you like meditation, get into it before everything starts.

This morning routine allows you as an employee to be very productive in the workplace because you will be well rested and focused. You will stand out from the rest and it will be easy for management to notice you and your performance.

Before Work

Make sure you are early to work every day. Ensure that you are there in time to have some time to yourself. Get grounded by clearing your mind and thoughts so you can focus on the day’s tasks. You need to be conscious about your environment and what you want to achieve that day. It is important that you block out other distractions so that you stay focused on the goals you have.

Make sure you know what needs to be accomplished during the day and devote the greater time and energy to those tasks that seem tedious. Avoid leaving them for the last minute.

 Planning your day beforehand will increase your efficiency at work

Being an efficient employee doesn’t always stand for one being able to complete day to day errands, but rather an efficient worker is one who is able to utilize every minute of every day to produce quality work whilst managing to accomplish the most crucial of tasks.  In order to be competent at work consider adhering to methodical ways that entail few of the following steps.

1. Focus on the task at hand.
Instead of squandering your time at work, simply focus on the task at hand. By concentrating solely on your work you will be able to get more work done in less time.

2. Plan your day at work beforehand
If you are looking to boost your productivity, work out a clear plan of attack and perhaps jot it down on paper.  Organizing and planning your day ahead will save you loads of time once you commence working.

3.  Formulate a group for similar task
Aim to group tasks of the same nature together, and try working on the at the same time. For instance get done with all the emails you need to send out, at once and then move on to the next task. This technique will also help you to develop your overall speed.

Compete With Yourself, Not With Others

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance

Don’t waste time trying to compete with other people. It is a game you can’t win. If you spend all your time worrying about having a better car than this guy at work, or being a better parent than that woman at the gym, you will always be chasing unattainable goals.

No matter how well you think you’re doing, there will always be someone with a better body, nicer hair, a bigger house, or more advanced electronic devices. That’s not to say any of those people are better than you. They just have different assets.

Don’t try to be better than everyone else. Set your own goals, and improve yourself every day

Your main goal in life should be to make yourself into best you that you can be. Focus on yourself and your family. Do what’s best personally for your health and your career. Don’t get caught up in competing with other people. It’s a waste of valuable time.

It is okay, however, to compete with yourself. Strive to be a better person than you were yesterday. If you ran a mile yesterday, run a mile-and-a-half today.

Be encouraged by your personal growth, look at how far you’ve come from where you used to be, and keep building on it. Compete with yourself, set realistic goals, and give yourself a reasonable amount of time to achieve them. Stay true to your own wants and needs.

Turning Negative Events into Positive Lessons

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance

Sometimes life hands you lemons. The key to dealing with the bad, is to focus on the good. Even if you’ve made an error in judgment or taken an inappropriate action that has had negative impact, you can chalk it up to a lesson learned.

Try to find the positive in situations, and roll with the punches.

As long as you can take away some wisdom or knowledge, an unhappy event doesn’t need to be viewed as a total loss. It’s fine to feel sad or discouraged for a while, but you can’t wallow in self-pity or disgust.

Always strive to be your best, but know that you are a flawed human being. You will make mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes will cause you trouble in your life. But don’t be too hard on yourself. Chances are, whatever you’ve done wrong, has been done by a million other people before you.

Besides learning from your own mistakes, you can also learn lessons from other people’s actions. If you see someone else who is succeeding, try to follow their examples. If you see someone struggling from doing the wrong thing, it can help you see what not to do.

By observing and learning from others, you can save yourself the trouble of making those same mistakes in your own life.
