In a new article for Vice News, Sarah Vignoles, author of The Secret to Productivity, explains how to be more productive, productive and productive at work.
Here are some tips for how to work smarter, not harder, Vignols writes.
Choose a goal and stick to it: Vignoes recommends you choose a goal for yourself.
She recommends “a good idea that you think will get you things done and that is a real goal.”
Vignolos says this can be a task or task-specific activity.
Use a task tracker: She also recommends a task tracking app like Pomodoro.
This way, you can track your goals and stay on track with them.
Set goals that you can be satisfied with: She says that goal setting is a skill that can help you “make the right choices for you, the right amount of money, and the right people.”
Find and use people that you trust: This is the easiest way to keep track of your work and personal life.
Vignolas says you can use the app MeetUp to meet people and find them on a regular basis.
Make sure you have a deadline: This may sound a little daunting at first, but she says “your time is valuable.”
You should be “in control of your own destiny.”
Be accountable: She recommends that you “take ownership of the decisions you make and the actions you take, and be accountable to them.”
She also says “you should be motivated to do the right thing and you should be willing to change your mind.”
Get your goals together: She tells Vignolis that she wants you to “work on the next task you want to do, and then make the next goal.”
She says “make sure you are getting it done in time and on budget.”
Focus on your work: She stresses that you should “focus on the work that matters” and that you need to be “focused on the things that really matter.”
Be flexible: She suggests that you take a break every now and then, to “get the blood flowing.”
She writes, “You don’t have to be on top of everything.”
Work hard: Visconti says she wants her “work to be done well” and she writes, Viscounti says that “you have to make the best of every day.”
She emphasizes that you must “make yourself happy, and you have to work hard.”
