Firstly organize your workspace:
After your Christmas vacation, it will be really dreary to return back to the work and top of that, seeing a cluttered workspace might result in dejection. It will be a great idea to give new look and feel to your workspace in the New Year. An unorganized workspace can be a big turn off to start off the New Year. If not a new look at least you can clean the space and make it appear fresh. You can spend some time and clean the space and then start with work. Kudos, to those who have cleaned the workspace and then went on leave.
Time to celebrate your victories:
After celebrating Christmas and New Year, it’s time for another celebration, rejoice your victories of 2014. Start the New Year on a happy note by recalling and rejoicing over your past success. This will give you strength and confidence to start the year productively. Celebrate your last year accomplishments with your employees and take pledge to achieve more this year.
Take short meetings in first week:
Meetings of maximum 15 minutes are more than enough to discuss the goals and for planning ahead. Don’t waste your time and energy in meetings, utilize the active mood effectively in work. Even daily meetings are not mandatory. More than speaking, reveal your efficiency in your performance.
Consider the possibilities:
Don’t run behind unrealistic goals, consider and plan for only goals that are attainable. Just focus on the right goals and head towards it. Too much of planning is also not healthy for your business. Thus, just be restricted to your possibilities to reach your target successfully.
Multitasking might not be fruitful:
Multitasking might not be productive all the time, not everybody has the skill to perform multiple tasks at the same time. Too much on the platter can be hard to digest and you might suffer from food poisoning so it’s better to consume only which is digestible. Undertake the tasks that are manageable or else you can goof up and undergo loss.
Don’t waste your time in responding to mails:
Don’t repeat the mistake which you committed in 2014, wasting time behind mails. Most of the people have the habit to keep on checking their inbox every now and then. Most of the productive time is spent in checking the mails. Hence instead of checking the mails frequently, fix time for this task. You can schedule time in morning and evening and check the mails.
Whatever you do remember to stay focused and determined then only you can have a productive year ahead. So let’s begin the New Year with new energy and enthusiasm.
