Are you constantly checking your phone or surfing the Internet while at work? And then, you try to reply an email while reading a text message? While you think you might be accomplishing more by multitasking, your productivity actually takes a hit.
Here are some things that are killing productivity.
1. Impulsively surfing the Internet
It takes 15 minutes before you can fully engage in a task, so don't disrupt it.
You can't produce something great if you don't get started.
Productive people avoid them if possible & always stick to the schedule.
4. Responding to emails as they arrive
Instead, check emails on a schedule and prioritise messages by sender.
5. Hitting the snooze button
When you hit the snooze button you lose alertness and wake up tired and groggy.
Your brain lacks the capacity to successfully do two tasks at the same time.
7. Putting off tough tasks
We have limited mental energy so tackle complex tasks in the morning.
