Sometimes, pushing harder to make things work is not the answer. Our society has idealized hard labor to the point where we no longer consider ways to do more with less effort. Burnout can result from working hard without taking time to reflect. Plan your efforts and keep a healthy work-life balance to attain long-term productivity.
Here are three simple adjustments you can make to increase your productivity without exhausting yourself.
- Align your workstation to your personality- Setting up your workspace with your personality features in mind will help you build a solid and encouraging workplace.
- Hack your imposter syndrome- Imposter syndrome is the unfounded perception that you are not as competent at your profession as other people believe you are. It is well known that this belief reduces an individual’s potential by undermining their self-confidence and self-esteem. Sincere discussions about your predicament with your coworkers can help you establish contact with those who can show you the ropes.
- Rethink your work environment
