Do you find yourself regularly wishing for more hours in the day? Are you squeezing every last drop out of every minute as demands from work and personal life seemingly never end? Some people counter this by continuously multitasking until realizing that they are barely ever fully engaged. Many blame the stresses of life and don't see that the issue may just be in their approach. But eventually, there has to be the realization that there must be a better way.
Some employees feel the solution to a heavy workload is to work more and more hours in hope to get ahead of it all. This serves to be a fruitless method as U.S. manufacturers are still facing a shortage in qualified workers, as identified in Prime Advantage's 2015 CFO Survey. The lack of capable employees prevents companies from being able to provide additional resources for this time-crunching quandary. Employees are thus forced to look for other ways to maximize their output. As we see in Inc.com's 15 Ways to Increase Productivity at Work, there are simple and deliberate techniques to improving productivity without the use of drastic measures. These tips will help you perform at your best and most efficient in the workplace and allow you to be fully present to enjoy your personal life as well.
