I use my resources wisely.
I schedule my time. I block out slots in my calendar for my priority projects. I give myself deadlines for completing tasks. I arrange my activities to take advantage of the hours when my performance peaks.
I clear away clutter. I keep my home and office organized and neat.
I limit distractions. I check messages at designated times instead of watching my phone throughout the day. I let others know when I am available and when I need to work without interruption.
I focus on tasks that match my strengths. I tailor my approach, so I can apply the experience, knowledge, and talents I already possess. I collaborate with others in areas where I need help.
I evaluate my efforts. I develop strategies to increase the quality and quantity of my work. I ask others for feedback. I talk with experts and read books. I make a game out of enhancing my performance.
I take breaks. Downtime restores my energy and enthusiasm. I walk around the block in between meetings. I spend a few minutes stretching each hour when I have a morning full of client phone calls and paperwork.
I think positive. A cheerful attitude makes me more relaxed and productive. I focus on what I like about my coworkers and my job. I give my full attention to one task at a time.
I feel engaged and motivated.
Today, I accomplish more with less time and effort. I am a model of efficiency.
