We all want to be successful at work. Whether you have a big project that you are working on, or just want to do better each day, there are some proven habits of highly successful people that you can start today. Check out some of these simple strategies to become more successful, and don’t forget to read about these bad habits in the workplace that you should stop.
Create a schedule
While your days may look a bit different from time to time, creating a schedule is a useful way to maximize your time. Start your schedule with your at home routine. Wake up at the same time each morning, arrive at the office around the same time, and eat your meals near the same time too. This simple scheduling will allow you to make space for meetings, brainstorming time, collaborating with others at their standing desks, and even family and friend time.
Use your weekends for adventure
Your weekends are the ideal time to step away from your standup desk and try out some new experiences. Adventures can help you clear your mind which can lead to problem solving and seeing things in a whole new way. This weekend, go for a hike, try out a new sport, or even cook a new meal. And remember that it is important to keep your body moving during the day too. Inactivity at your office can have many negative effects on your body, mind, and focus. Stand at your adjustable height desk for as many hours a day as you can, and take breaks to get coffee or refill your water bottle.
Set specific goals each week and month
Setting goals helps you to keep track of your progress each day. It can be overwhelming at times when you feel like you have so much work to do. When you can keep goals in mind, even small ones day to day, you can stay focused and feel a stronger sense of accomplishment.
Reading, whether it be for personal development or professional development, is vital in becoming more successful. Take a few minutes each day to read. Sit down at your adjustable height desk for a quick break and read just a few pages of your selected book. This will not only take your mind off of any stressful tasks, but can help renew your energy and focus.
Make to-do lists
Just like creating a schedule each day, writing down a to-do list will help you stay focused and get things done. Each day before you leave your standing workstation, make a to-do list for the next day. Put your toughest tasks on top as your highest priority. Getting a big task finished early in the day will open up your mind to take care of other things.
Standing desks are another big part of becoming more successful. Working at a standup desk can help you to be more productive and creative. True North Desks has many standing desk styles, one that is sure to work for you. Request our brochure for more information.
