Increase Your Productivity

Five tips to get the most out of your workday.

Making the most of each workday takes a conscious effort, according to Fast Company.

Try these five tips to spend your time wisely:

1. Set your agenda. Jumping right into emails and phone calls first thing in the morning can derail your day. Take time to planódon't just react to other people's agendas.

2. Focus. Identify activities that consume time but don't contribute to your overall productivity, and minimize their impact on your day.

3. Write it down. Take notes. Let your brain focus on the task at hand and not worry about having to store information.

4. Get it over with. Do the most daunting tasks first. You're less likely to have a wealth of energy and motivation later in the day.

5. Don't multitask. If your attention is divided between two or more tasks, you'll probably spend more time completing them than if you attended to them one at a time.
