PRLog - Apr. 4, 2012 - DENVER -- DENVER, Colorado, April 4, 2012 – There seems to be a million obstacles to getting through any given day productively. No matter how early the day begins or how late it ends, projects go uncompleted and new work stacks up, costing businesses billions in underproduction annually. Time management and productivity expert Laura Stack says the first step to eliminating the obstacles that are preventing workers from producing is to acknowledge each distraction individually and resolve it. This, she says, can be done in painlessly and fairly quickly by any committed individual.
Workplace distractions impact productivity
In her new blog, “55-1/5 Ways to Boost Productivity,”
According to Stack, any number of small disruptions can cumulatively turn into huge time sinks that hamper productivity.
“We’re all trying to do more with less, and chances are that you and your company have already made the big, tough decisions needed to streamline operations,”
Stack says individuals can boost both personal and team productivity by adopting a number of small changes – 55-1/5 of them, to be exact – that are easy to implement and provide immediate results. Beginning with the first hour of the day, Stack offers a glaring look at the ways workers self-sabotage with time-wasting habits that must be shed. Chances are, checking Facebook or visiting coworkers on the way to a coffee refill within the first hour of work is a stage setter for the rest of the day.
Stack, a sought-after time management and productivity expert who helps corporations and organizations worldwide establish measures to maximize productivity, bases her advice in part on the notion that consistently working toward a goal, whether personal or work related, can make finding the wherewithal to eliminate distractions and carve out time to achieve it easier.
