What is it that separates people who are highly effective in work (and life) from those who are less so? Often its a few very specific (and learnable!) things. Acquire these eight simple habits and you wont just get more done, you might actually change your life.


5 Things to Do to Be Better at Work


1. Focus on One Task at a Time

Dont pile on too many projects at once.Its easy to allow new problems to distract you from wrapping up old ones. Understandthe difference between whats important versus (merely) urgent, and prioritize accordingly. Set deadlines for yourselfand keep them.

2. Get Active

Dont be a prisoner of your desk, office, or workspace. Get outside in the morning, during breaks, or in the afternoon, and take a quick walk to get yourself moving. Let your mind wander as you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

3. Learn to say No

Its hard to say no when faced with a new project or opportunity, but the most effective people know that they cant do everythingespecially not all at once. If you arent sure that you can take something on, say no, or defer the task,ordelegate the workto someone on your team who has both the time and the expertise to complete it.

4. Value your time

Spend your time wisely, and do your best to avoid the distractions that you can control while in the office. Keep an open-door policy, but dont allow people to monopolize your time on topics or issues that dont mesh with the goals of your organization, your team, or yourself.

5. Be a Good Listener

Good listening skills are vital to your productivity, becauselistening well helpsto avoid misunderstandings and miscommunications that create needless work. If youre talking more than youre listening, youve got a problem.
