7 ways to work smarter, not harder | The Daily Star - Next Step

Here are seven advice published by Rahma Mirza, sophomore at the Institute of Business Administration, University of Dhaka.

Start with making a plan for the day
What do you need to get done? Prioritise. What is the most important work that you need to do? Make a plan that works for you. If you like working with rigid time based plans, make those. If you like more flexible list type plans, then stick to those. Whatever you do, make sure you have a prioritised list of tasks that you need to get done for the day made.
Don't be all over the place with your work. You have an assignment? Narrow down what needs to be done and formulate a plan (or a method) as to how you are going to get the work done. Think about the work before diving right in, have a strategic way to go at it. Have a series of different tasks? Work in blocks. Finish one block of work or half of each to stay motivated.
And finally, know what time of the day works for you. If you aren't a morning person, don't push yourself to work in the morning. Find the time when you reach your peak efficiency and block out distractions during that time and work.

Gather your information
You won't get stuck as often your task if you knew how to go ahead with it. Learn as much you can, as a matter of fact, always maintain a high learning curve. Keep learning skills and information that will help you out, for example, master those excel skills and invest in critical. Try asking a colleague or senior about how to get the work done, someone who has done it before. Ask their advice and learn from their experience
