Communicate more efficiently – Eliminate miscommunications or misunderstandings by always communicating concisely and being mindful of details. Keep your emails, meetings, or phone calls short and to the point, focus on the important details so there is no confusion on anyone’s part, and only involve those absolutely necessary.

Identify and take advantage of your peak hours – Whether it’s first thing in the morning, after you’ve been up for a few hours, or after you’ve powered up with lunch, find your periods of peak productivity and tackle your most challenging tasks during those times.

Put an end to multitasking – Dividing your attention between more than one thing means you’re never really focused on anything. Multitasking at work makes it difficult to concentrate, inhibits creativity, results in more mistakes, and causes anxiety. Focus on one task at a time and get it done right the first time.
