BOOST YOUR PERFORMANCE

These productivity hacks will improve your time management skills and lead to better workplace relationships. We spend so much time at work and face deadlines every day, and we have to manage competing tasks to meet the deadlines. By becoming more efficient, we will decrease our stress levels and free up time for other things.
Managing our Work-Life Balance
It is necessary to create boundaries between work and home that are realistic. Try to work more efficiently while at work, and when you leave for the day, try not to recheck your emails until tomorrow. By taking a break from work overnight, it helps you to remain motivated and productive.
By improving time management skills, we get more done in a day. When your boss gives you tasks due Friday, try to have them finished by Thursday afternoon, which leaves Friday less stressful.
Another productivity hack is professional development. In some places, 20-40 hours of training outside work to be completed by the employee annually in their own time. So if you can undertake it in the workplace, try to skill up by logging into work-related LMS training modules (learning management systems) and set yourself a continuous learning plan
Practice Being Proactive
Often a negative situation in the office will need to be turned around. If you see the problem emerging, you will intervene and employ a few productivity hacks to solve or deflect the issue. If you are a good problem solver, you will be indispensable in the office and always control the circumstances. There is usually one toxic person in the workplace, and they are the people that hold you back from achieving your goals. It is difficult often to move them as once they are entrenched, and they are the person spreading negativity and scorn onto every suggestion, making it hard for others to put forward ideas. These sorts of people hold the whole workplace back from achieving, and you hope that the boss can see it. If he can't, surround the workplace with uplifting, inspiring people, and soon the negative person will feel out of place and move on.
Believe in Yourself
One of the ultimate productivity hacks is believing in yourself. It is important not to let beliefs hold you back, and to be confident in yourself helps you move forward. To do this, you often need to challenge negativity and assumptions. You must have enough time and energy both for your family and for your workplace. Sometimes we need to set limits and boundaries to let others know what we want and where we stand.
The qualities we have as a person help us move forward with our personal development goals. If we can employ some productivity hacks along the way, it only enhances our journey.
