Develop Your Focus at Work without Hassle



There are lot of work-related traps and hazards that an ordinary worker has to contend with everyday as soon as they walk-in their office premises. Not to mention the problems at home bugging them but have to be left behind because they are expected to be professionals and already wear the hat of an employee when at work.


All these work hassles may stress out the employee in the long run. It is best if he knows how to make the stress work for him and transform it to become a motivator to boost his productivity and morale rather than succumb to the stressors around him. How to do this? By always viewing and seeing the positive side of all his encounters at work.


A good employee can easily adjust to any given situation, adapt well to the surrounding he is in and flexible by working his way into anything. He has the ability to establish effective mechanisms that will guide him in dealing with the distractions and develop a solid rock focus and concentration on whatever he is working on. If the employee has all these criteria, work will become an enjoyment because there will be no piling up of workload and everything is done smoothly with great ease and excellent outputs.


How to go this way and become the kind of employee that any employer would want to have on his team, you might want to check on this way-to-go tips:


  • Impose your own personal working policy and implement it. Nothing beats a disciplined worker. If a project or a list of work to do is given to you by your boss, develop a working plan and set deadlines for each. Be sure you follow the plan and deadlines you set. Learn the right pacing that will work best for you. You are the only one who can control how fast, in which order and how well each task is completed. Focus on one task at a time to avoid mind clutter.


  • Develop routines and patterns which will work around the project you are working on. Aside from the new project that your boss tasked you to do, there are some things that you also have to deal with that is also a part of your job. It is good if you have been following a routine before and only little adjustments might be needed. Phone calls, email, text messages and visitors deserve your attention too especially if these are customers. Setting aside time for them is a great help. You may go to the office a little earlier or use your mornings to work on these dealings and have the afternoon for your new project.


  • Included in your working policy must be the boundaries you set for your co-workers and even loved ones. If co-workers need a little of your time to help them carry out some tasks, its ok to say “no” in a very nice way if you have priority things to do. For family members, set time when they can call you unless it is a life-and-death emergency.


  • Red Alert: Mental Block! What if your concentration runs out? Learn to read your body signals which mean you need to take some time off your computer and get a cup of coffee. A better suggestion would be to grab some fruits and have water for your break and try doing some desk exercises to ease out tension from your body.


  • Another thing that you should be aware about is your body’s comfort while working. Be sure that your workspace speaks convenience and ease for you. Have the necessary supplies near your reach and if you need anything installed, inform the proper authority so he can act on it quickly.


  • Train yourself to ignore the little nuisances at work such as noises from machines and chatty co-workers.


All these suggestions, if followed, will spell success for you as an employee. This will be your foundation for a solid rock focus and concentration in your work and it will increase your productivity level without stress or rather stress has become your ally, your motivator.
