Is remote work something new for you? Are you struggling to keep the productivity you once have in the office?
These are some tips that can help to improve your productivity levels.
In many cases, starting a quick Zoom call will save a lot of time.
Slack, e-mail, meetings, OS... too many notifications!
Go into do not disturb.
macOS: Go to Notification Center and tap
Do Not Disturb. This is better as everything will be muted.
Leave channels that don't offer any value.
- block your calendar.
- once a while, when possible, take calls outside your home... get some fresh air.
- be honest and let people know if the conversation needs to move on (thereby speeding up your meetings).
- get headphones
- enable do not disturb on your mobile
Have you heard about Pomodoro Technique?
It is an extremely useful time management method that helps to break down work intervals separated by short break intervals.
You don't need to manage the intervals manually, there are many tools that can automatically do it for you.
My choice is Flow, a minimalistic pomodoro based focus timer. Increase your productivity and reduce stress at the same time.
Those are the hacks I use daily to improve my productivity. What about yours?
