TOP READS OF THE WEEK: Reclaim Your Focus!

Is the relaxation from your summer break already a vague memory? Do you feel in need of another break to stay productive and motivated for the last quarter of the year? You are not alone in the struggle to hang on to that refreshed glow.

Instead of coming back to work to inject our projects with endless energy and creativity, we are stuck to catch up with emails and falling further behind of projects and tasks.  

We at Timeo-Performance love to see how participants in our business accelerator trainings such as “Getting The Right Work Done” learn to take charge of their time by determining, creating and implementing powerful goals and sustainable action plans.

I compiled for you great articles about strategies to recharge under stress, to get the most out of a micro-vacation and to stay focused by taking control of your time.  

To Cope with Stress, Try Learning Something New

Stressed. Anxious. Exhausted. Drained. This is how many employees feel at work due to stressors like longer work hours, more-frequent hassles, the need to do more with fewer resources, and so on. Such work stress has been shown to induce anxiety and anger, unethical behavior, poor decision making, and chronic exhaustion and burnout — all of which impair personal and organizational performance.

How to get the most out of a day off

The idea of “vacation” often conjures up thoughts of trips to faraway lands. While it’s true that big trips can be fun and even refreshing, they can also take a lot of time, energy, and money. A lot of people feel exhausted just thinking about planning a vacation—not just navigating personal commitments and school breaks, but deciding how to delegate major projects or put work on hold, just so they can have a stress-free holiday. Because of this, some might put off their time away, figuring they’ll get to it when their schedule isn’t so demanding, only to discover at the end of the year that they haven’t used up their paid time off.

That’s why it’s important to eliminate daily distractions if you want to improve your workflow and grow your business. Ready to take charge of your day? Here are five ways to stay focused in a distracted world.

Eight Ways To Achieve Work-Life Balance Within A Thriving Business

Through recruitment, training and consulting, Timeo-Performance provides solutions for increased performance of companies, teams, and individuals. As our clients are in the center of global business and often serve the APAC region, our solutions need to be sustainable in a multicultural and remote context.

We love what we do, feel the Timeo-Performance experience!

As busy professionals, our schedules are often filled to the brim with meetings and tasks to complete. We can get so caught up with work that we might even forget our all-important lunch and power through dinner as well. Alas, we can only do so much given the 24 hours we have in a day. While time management is vital, being productive is another matter in its entirety.Enter time batching.
