The party season is over and it’s time to get back to work. Now, if your anything like us and January is not the driest month of the year or you’ve avoided joining the gym because it’s “always busy” come January 1, then you’re probably searching around looking for a New Year’s resolution to forget about in a week or two.

Maybe if you were more productive you would have found one by now.

Easier said than done we know, but that’s why we’ve put together a selection of handy pointers on how to increase your productivity in 2019.

Keep Your Workspace Clean

Are you a hoarder or maybe an untidy worker? Then it may be time to tidy your workspace and start anew in 2019.

It doesn’t take long to clean your desk and, by doing so, you’ll boost your productiveness as you won’t be wasting time searching for a scrap piece of paper that was on your desk but is now somehow lost to the rubbish dump you call a workspace.

Simply by knowing where things are keeps you on top of your game.

Ensure You Work for Someone who Inspires You

Our mindset determines how we approach work. Productivity tends to blossom when you work for someone who inspires you.

Here at Signature Living we work for Lawrence Kenwright, a chairman who inspires us to be more productive every day.

Working for Lawrence, or anyone else who inspires you, is a sure way to boost your productivity and embolden you to work hard.

Update Your Resume

Whether or not you’re in the market for a new career, January is the ideal time to update your resume. Updating your curriculum vitae enables you to not only browse the job market, but also to evaluate and remind yourself of your achievements thus far.

Nothing boosts productivity more than a boost in your morale thus emboldening your go get it demeanour.

Leave Your Phone at Home

Let’s be honest, if your phone wasn’t constantly vibrating from the steady spew of notifications, you’d be able to focus more and be more productive.

Boosting your productivity doesn’t mean head down, blinkers on, madly working until you burnout. It means connecting with people, networking and making new contacts.

Leaving your mobile phone at home may be somewhat of an overstatement but locking it away on occasion could improve your output.

So, the next time you can’t find your phone don’t panic, it may be a good thing.

Work Harder and Smarter

The proverb goes: “work smarter not harder,” but why can’t you do both?

By working smarter, be it adhering to a routine, stopping procrastinating or communicating clearer, you’ll have more time to work harder thus boosting your productivity.

It doesn’t have to be an either or choice, you can both work extremely hard and cunningly smart while at work.

Meditate

Again, meditating may be somewhat of an overstatement but unwinding in the wake of work is imperative so that you can be more productive.

The issue of unplugging is particularly relevant in the working world as technology has made it easier to bring your problems home.

So, unwind, read a book, meditate and prepare yourself for a productive day ahead.
