Let's imagine the situation: the builder is running around the site with an empty car. A surprised passerby looks at him, at how he works, running from the concrete mixer to the place where he should pour the concrete. After all, he can't stand it and asks the worker, "Why are you running around with an empty car?" The builder answers him: "Dude, I have such a "mash" that I don't have time to load the car. Of course, it's just a funny case. However, doesn't it remind you of the behavior of some people? They rush forward so fast that they sometimes forget to even think about anything other than duties and work.
There is distress and constant "running with the car" leads to dissatisfaction and chronic fatigue, and it is not normal. It is simply necessary to begin to approach reasonably to performance of the duties assigned to you and, certainly, you will have time not only for "filling the car", but also for a lunch break.
The principle Less = More
It's amazing how many factors can affect how effectively we use our time. We work with the best performance when we are fully focused and focused on our responsibilities, and nothing bothers or distracts us. Meanwhile, every day and even every hour we are completely unconsciously interfering with ourselves. The radio that is turned on during the work distracts us because, without realizing it, from time to time we start thinking about the messages, news, performers, songs. Each of these distractions causes us to lose our rhythm and concentration, thus spending more time on the task than it deserves. Swiss art dealer Yves Bouvier
This is just one example of how invisible things can distract you from your effective work. There is a whole set of trivial things that interfere with your work and lead you to spend your time on something that is not important and necessary at all. These are e-mail, all kinds of chats, Skype, notorious social networks, all kinds of solitaire, etc.
How to work effectively? Focus on doing a specific job. Do only one activity and do not let anyone or anything distract you from it. With this approach, your energy and strength will be focused entirely on the task at hand, so you can do it faster than if you had to do more than one job at a time. Not only will this allow you to do more work, but it will also have a positive impact on your well-being. The stress that comes with working on several tasks at the same time will be eliminated and at the end of the day it turns out that no work has been done 100%. Efficiency is the first step to success in your work.
