Productivity is the heart and soul of a business. Keep reading for tips and advice on how to accomplish that.
Don't focus too much on the physical layout.
While physical space is certainly important, it's also critical that you cultivate an atmosphere of productivity in your workplace.
If your workplace is uncomfortable or full of distractions, it can make for an unhappy and un productive workplace. And when something makes you unhappy, you are simply not as productive or engaged as you could be.
Create opportunities for movement.
The best way to stay focused during a long day of work is to acknowledge when you hit a productivity wall and to take lots of short, quick breaks to gain a new perspective on what you’re working on.
Productivity is not directly correlated with time spent on a task, it's important to make sure that you're re-calibrating and refueling once in a while.
Get a plant.
No, really! having lots of plants around the workspace helps produce cleaner air, and it motivates you to be more energetic and creative, scientific studies have proven the positives of more greenery for offices, from reducing stress to increasing productivity and creativity, plants have oodles of pros.
Give gadgets a home.
Smartphones, tablets and other gadgets can help you stay organized and efficient, but they can also be a big distraction and time-waster.
The best way to avoid this wasted time is to find a home for gadgets and leave them there. Keep them in a dedicated place while you do your work so you won't be side-lined by a constant stream of notifications. A good place to stash your electronics is in a drawer. Out of sight, out of mind.
Keep your space clean.
If you're sitting in a messy space thinking about how unorganized your area is and how you should clean it, you're probably not getting a lot of work done.
Take a few minutes every day to tidy up your workspace, you can do this by throwing out unnecessary items and maintaining whatever organization system suits your style, so those extra distractions and clutter your workspace.
Personalizing your space, “in moderation of course”, can increase your emotional connection to your work, but it's important to not let the personal touches become the clutter that we mentioned above.
Choose personal items that inspire you to be productive.
There is no standard approach to office layouts, design or functionality; Each individual is different, be creative and design your space in a way the you will be more successful in achieving your goals.
