In any industry you work in, time is of the essence. You’ll see this most keenly when you work in education or healthcare. But even if you are a part of a typical business setting, time and productivity are two precious resources you may not notice when you start losing them. Here is how you can assess what is costing you valuable time at the office.
Answering Your Email
We understand how essential checking email is. After all, you never know if you’ve missed an urgent message from being too busy to look at it every so often. But you’ve got to be able to organize and streamline your email so what you need to see isn’t lost in the messy, cluttered echo chamber that your email inbox can become over time. This dilemma becomes even more pressing after you’ve recently reached a milestone at work.
Spending Too Much Time in Meetings
Meetings are inevitable in any line of work. But there is a way to make meetings more effective and not something everyone dreads. You do have a say in how your daily agenda runs – so ask why the meeting is being held. Sometimes these meetings are held once a week and are meant to get everyone on the same page. Even so, that doesn’t mean they need to be too time-consuming. If you’re in a management position, then you understand how multiple meetings in the same day can keep you away from your other obligations, such as checking in on the needs and concerns of your team.
Talking to Coworkers
Building a bond with your coworkers can make your job worthwhile. You might not always look forward to coming back in after the weekend, but having good coworkers can also make a difference. That said, you can’t afford to spend all day talking to your coworkers. Everybody has a lot to do, and communicating can make that workload lighter. All the same, don’t lose too much time when you do. As fun as it can be to spend time talking and making jokes with your coworkers, you need to be able to get down to business, too.
