by Kristen White Blogger
Working hard is a good thing. Indeed you can do a load of work and finish it at the right time. But is it good enough with a fast-moving world? It is not. We need to start working smart now. Why? We will be able to do even more work and have extra time to spare for other stuff like family, learning Revit courses in Brisbane, and don’t forget having fun.


This article presents you 20 ways you can work smarter not harder. Take a look:

Make a Work Plan

  • Your priority should be doing the right things first (effective) before doing them right (efficient). If you do everything right, you will end up doing even what you should not have done.

  • You should not focus on the time spent doing work but rather the work you can finish within a given time.

  • Make the process outline by creating milestones and tasks that need to be accomplished. This will give you the freedom to remove any stages that are not useful.

  • Make a checklist which will help you not to skip an item and be able to mark accomplished tasks.

Have a Time Focus

  • You cannot make or store time. If you misuse, it is gone. Make use of every minute for it counts.

  • Fill your timeline with the biggest ideas you want to accomplish.

  • If you want to accomplish the most important tasks, you will have to work fewer hours.

  • Time log keeping will help you know exactly what activity takes your time. Make sure you keep a time log for a full week.

  • Handle the activity that you do not like your first item. Once you are through with that, the things you enjoy will be even easier to handle.
     
  • If you have plenty of projects, arrange them such that all similar tasks are next to each other.

  • Assign a chunk of time to given projects to come up with the valuable result.

Information Management

  • Make the meetings less. Meetings can be time-consuming. If you must have meetings, then have a fixed time to handle the meeting. Another secret is to keep the number of persons involved small.

  • Let your email be filtered by software to help you handle emails that are most important and read later promotional and social emails.

  • Turn off notifications on your phone and your computer to avoid distractions during the work process.

Know the Tools to Use

  • Know the tools you really use. This includes both physical and digital tools. The unused tools can be kept away.

  • Discover new tools and ways to use them. Get a formal education on how to use the tools.

  • Create shortcuts and use the present shortcuts that are on your computer. It saves time.

Make Repetitive Tasks Automatic

  • Let the frequently used documents made into templates to reuse them when in need easily.

  • There are ways you are used to working make sure the software you use is customised to fit your purpose.

  • Some programming on your computer will help you do repetitive tasks so that you increasingly involve in tasks that need your commitment. Indeed you can use the spare time to know new things like Revit courses in Brisbane.
