There are days in the office when you’re on a high and achieving everything seems possible. But there are also days when you sit at your desk and stare at your screen, waiting for inspiration to strike.
Here are some easy ways to get the wheels turning and boost your productivity, every day.
1) Find Your Personal ‘Peak Productivity Time’
Are you a morning person or a night owl? Identify the time you feel the most productive and schedule the most demanding jobs for then. Use the rest of the day to catch up on your email.
