There are specific places where we feel comfortable and productive. Some prefer to be at home while other people find themselves more productive in their offices. This is also supported by several studies and surveys conducted that people are inclined to have emotional and mental responses to specific places. Thanks Unclutterer for the great tips!
However, there are times when you are out of your comfort zones. This can be very uncomfortable causing you to lose your focus. The good thing is that you can overcome this situation and still be productive no matter where you are. Here are some of the tips on staying productive no matter where you are located:
Know your surroundings
People have different levels of concentration. There are people who can work even in noisy environment while others cannot. If you’re out of your comfort zone, might as well be familiar with the nearby places where you can change your background. For example, if beautiful plants and flowers can spark your work efficiency, you may opt to go to a garden or park.
Maximize the little things you can do in a given area
If you are falling in a long line to pay your grocery items, you can simply look at your calendar of activities and see if there are things you can do while standing. For instance, you can write something in your to-do-list and plan for the incoming weeks. Since the majority is using smart phone, you can send emails to your clients, read emails and reply to the sender.
Small things matter
Accomplishing a few simple tasks can be your great achievement when pile up. It may be calculating your bill payment, proofreading your papers or anything that you can do while waiting for your turn to order your meal in a fast food.
These are just some of the few things that you can do to maximize your time in an unfamiliar working place.
