Well done, you’ve conquered the mid-week hump. Not only is the weekend within touching distance, but Monday has already been long forgotten about. So, how do you remain positive and productive for the final few days of the week? DropTask is on hand to give you a little boost of motivation to help end this week on a productive note and put you in a better position for the following week.
To help you make the most of your Thursday, we’ve noted down our top tips for remaining motivated to get you through to the end of this week.
Do something different
Sometimes, when we get stuck in the same routine, our motivation takes a serious hit. The same goes for our work too. Instead of structuring your work in a mundane fashion, use DropTask’s visual and intuitive Canvas to help brighten your workload and make everyday information more enticing . Inject some color into your working day and personalize tasks with Cover Images. Did you know visuals act as a motivational tool? Our brains are more inclined to absorb the information that’s being displayed when they’re used. Plus, even when you switch to block-shaped tasks in the Workflow, Calendar and Urgency Lists views, your Cover Images remain right where you left them. Try it for yourself, and reignite your interest in whatever you’ve got left to do.
Take a break
It really is that simple. If you’ve hit a slump, take 5 minutes away from your desk to recharge your energy levels. The great thing about taking breaks is that they help restore your productivity. When you work for long periods of time without taking the time to pause, you are more likely to burnout from exhaustion – and that will do nothing for your long-term goals. Grab a coffee, go for a walk outside or catch-up with a colleague. Whatever you need to do to renew your focus, do it! And don’t worry about your work disappearing while you’re away. Before you head off, add a Progress indicator to your task so that when you return, you can pick up exactly where you left off. DropTask keeps all important files, dates and conversations in one secure place, so they can be easily retrieved wherever you are and whenever you need it.
When our motivation is wavering, we’re more likely to become distracted from our work. We’ve all been there. Jumping between tasks, getting lost in email threads and not really getting anywhere. No matter how busy we feel, in reality, this only makes us less productive. In DropTask, cut through the noise and use Filters to hone in on your priorities. See only the things you need to see and Filter by Urgency Level to see what requires your attention right now.
