When in the co-working space, there are many techniques you can employ to help improve your productivity and prevent you from wasting time while you are in the space.
Understand how much time you are spending on tasks
It is important to understand how you are spending your time in the office. It is estimated only 17% of people can accurately estimate the passage of time when working. Using phone applications to help you manage your time can boost productivity and leave you feeling satisfied with the work you have done.
Do your best instead of chasing after perfection
It can be incredibly easy to become enraptured by the idea that your work must be perfect before it can be shown off, however, reality and time often mean that you can not always meet this goal and by spending time trying to make sure every little detail is flawless can eat into productivity. Always chase after your best when creating something, and only if time allows should you focus on making sure it is perfect.
It is important to take a moment to stop and reflect. While it might sound counterintuitive to stop working, it is actually seen that taking breaks can actually help improve concentration and motivate you to keep on working.
To put off procrastination, impose deadlines or due dates for your work. This will help to motivate you to complete your work as the sensation of having something needed to be done on time will not only motivate you to start earlier, but will give you a clear goal to focus on, finishing the work on time.
Finish small tasks immediately
If there is a task that can be done relatively quickly, get it done immediately. This means you won’t need to put it off and it can be done before more work or more important tasks begin to pile on.
With these pointers, you will be able to maximize your productivity in the co-working space, all while maintaining a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction with the work you do.
