Top Three Productivity Tips We Learned in 2020
Without a doubt we can all agree that last year was a challenging year for businesses and productivity. Whether you had to adjust to working from home or you had to navigate working from the office, getting used to the “new normal” was not an easy task.
When looking back on 2020 and thinking what we can do to make 2021 better, the first thing that came to our mind was to increase our productivity and efficiency both as individuals and as a team.
Here are some tips that helped us, and we hope they will do the same for you.
First, be realistic
Setting realistic goals for yourself is very important. This is especially important for all of you overachievers out there. Take a realistic look at your tasks and schedule. Write them down, prioritize, and leave something for the next day. In that way at the end of the day you will feel stress free, more accomplished and you will be more motivated to tackle your tasks once you start seeing them in the DONE column.
Have a focused conversation
Nowadays the function of emailing it starting to be replaced by video calls. We know that sometimes meetings can be tedious and they can completely shift your focus. For your next call set a clear agenda, it will introduce vigour, clarity and will be a guide for everyone involved. Most importantly, try to skip the small talk and get straight to the point. It will save you time and will keep you focused on the important things that need to be done.
Use a feature-rich, non-integration, team collaboration software
Using multiple apps and platforms for communication and project management can be way too distracting and it can cause you to lose important files. This can be a real productivity killer. What you need is one software platform that has all the features you need. A feature-rich, non-integrative app like Tafoma.
Tafoma as an extensive team collaboration and project management tool offers plenty of features that makes team collaboration easier. With just one app you get a clear overview of your team’s projects and tasks. You can Chat or use the Video call option, our in-house designed Office, Drive to store files, Calendar feature to keep track of deadlines and meetings and so much more.
