The beginning of a new year brings new opportunities to make fresh beginnings, take on fresh challenges, and prepare for the year ahead.
This means preparing for the next step in your career and work. With the new year just rolling in, many of us may be making resolutions and looking for ways to work more productively and efficiently. And the question that we all may be asking is “How can I perform better at work?”
Most of us may find it hard to get work done and have time to balance work and personal life. But just making some changes in your lifestyle and following some habits can drastically improve your productivity at work.
Let’s explore some of the hacks you can use to work better this year!
1. Create a Checklist
Enter the new year with a to-do list and make note of all your assigned work and pending tasks that need to be completed. Create a detailed list that helps you plan your day. Put down a list of small tasks and important tasks that will help you put things in perspective. It is important to have a goal-oriented and systematic approach to work.
2. Have a Clean Desk
A clean desk gives you clean and positive thoughts! It is essential to tidy up your work desk on a daily basis so it is free from messy distractions. Having a messy desk will only lead to into mental mess affecting your productivity at work.

3. Take a Break
Your career is a major part of your life and consumes a large portion of your time. Working for long periods of time can be monotonous and drain you mentally and physically. Taking a break to unwind and recharge is crucial and can improve your overall state of mind. This in turn can help you work productively with focus and energy. If you are looking to upgrade your workspace, Workafella’s coworking centers offer spacious workstations and common areas to relax and unwind.
4. Set Goals and Deadlines
While you are creating your to-do list it is also important to set tangible goals and deadlines to hold yourself accountable for your work. Set goals that will point you towards getting off to a productive start at work! As important as it is to set goals is it also important to make efforts to achieve those goals within a deadline. Set deadlines for each task and ensure that important work gets prioritized.
5. Monitor and Track Your Progress
After setting goals and working towards them, the next crucial step in getting better at work is to monitor your progress and evaluate your work. Make sure that you are on track with your tasks, goals and deadlines. Keep track of your daily progress and take up tasks and challenges according to your capacity and ability.
