Many people find it hard to handle all their daily tasks with easily and efficiently. They do not know that a person can accomplish all the tasks and have some breaks at the same time during working hours. Below are some tips for you to improve your managing skills and enhancing your productivity:
1. Highlight important tasks:
You probably find it hard to start with all your tasks, you take a lot of time to decide with which ones to begin and end up doing none or few of them. It is time to learn how to prioritize your work; list the most important and urgent ones, then move to the important ones and then to the least important tasks.
2. Concentrate on your own work:
When you feel you are overloaded and stressed, do not accept to take more tasks. Concentrate on what you already have and feel free to refuse any requests, either from your boss or your co-workers. You can also postpone some tasks to the next day or ask someone to help you. Having a lot of work may lead to unwanted results in a very important job.

It is really necessary to organize your desk, or else, you will waste your time searching for important papers or notes. This will make it impossible for you to deliver the tasks before deadlines. When your desk is neat, you will save time and deliver the best results.
4. Make sure you are not interrupted:
Of course, we can no longer live without the internet and social networks. However, they are the main source of distraction at work. We waste our time checking our Facebook page instead of completing the work we have. Moreover, you should learn how to avoid chatting with coworkers, as well as checking your mail every now and then, especially when you are not waiting for an urgent response on an important job.
5. Do not forget breaks:
Sometimes you get busy at work and we forget about taking a break. In fact, when you are exhausted, you won’t be working efficiently. Having a short break will help our minds and bodies refresh and ready for being more productive. In this way, you will be able to achieve more tasks without committing any errors. Take some time to eat, away from your desk and better away from the office.
6. Organize your schedule:
In other words, make sure you assign the most difficult tasks to the time you think you work most efficiently. Leave the easier task for another time of the working hours.
