Boost Your Productivity with 10 Minutes at the End of Your Day

Once you have completed your day you can boost your efforts for tomorrow with an investment of only 10 minutes. Apply these strategies at the end of your work day and you will definitely increase your productivity.

Quitting time. Schedule time at the end of your day; just like for your first 60-minutes, you need to block-out the last 10-minutes of your day to make time for your end-of-day routine.

Look ahead. Start your 'to do' list for the next day. The best time to do this is at the end of the day when your focus is still on the job ? it's far more difficult to do in the morning when you're wondering where you left-off the day before.

Carry over incomplete tasks from your current day's list and add new priorities. It helps to clear your head and put it to paper and you'll be amazed at how much more effective you can be when your brain power is being put to problem-solving rather than trying to remember everything you need to do! It helps too to give you a clearer picture of what needs to be achieved and what you can delegate ? and, there's enormous satisfaction in being able to tick-off completed items and review your achievements at the end of the day!

What's in store?Check your diary and commitments for the following day and be aware of what's coming up, where you need to be and what preparation, tasks and projects you need to focus on.

Leave it clean. Clear and tidy your desk, throw rubbish in the bin, sort leftover mail and papers and put your files away; apart form being good housekeeping, it is good for office security to have valuable company information filed away in locked cabinets or drawers. By clearing your workspace you also signal the end of the day and clear your mind. Wash up. Clean your coffee cup, empty your water bottle, wash any leftover dishes or containers from lunch, and start each day afresh.

Carry your reading. Put your reading file in your briefcase. If you don't already have one, start a reading file and carry it with you on your way home. You can get through a surprising amount of reading while on public transport to and from work and while waiting in queues.

Shut down.Switch your phone to voicemail, remembering to change your message if you're not going to be in the next day, or if you're going to be in late. Close out your email, again, remembering to activate your 'out of office' message if you're not going to be in the next day, and switch off your computer, screen & printer.
