It’s the Friday before a holiday and the weather is amazing. In Minnesota that means it is so hard to be in the office and focus, yet, it’s a work day and I have a lot I need to get done.
Dilbert and I are here to give you a few tips to help you make it to 5:00pm on the Friday before a Holiday.
#1 Top 3 Priorities – write out your top three priorities for the day on something.
#2 Work in Small Bursts – Set a timer for 20 min, they have found that to be the most productive time and then take a minute to move before the next 20 minutes.
#3 Remind Yourself of the Goal – Have a sticky note tagged to your screen reminding you of what you are working on.
#4 Close your Office Door – The whole office is feeling the same way you are. They just want to be on vacation and some of them are just bodies in a chair with a mind that is already at the cabin. Don’t let them infect your plan.
#5 Drink Water – It makes you need to move after 20 minutes and it is so good for your brain. It will help you stay focused until 5pm.
Have a wonderful Holiday. You can make it to 5pm!
