The First 2 Hours: Make Better Use of Your Most Valuable Time
Are you drowning in email?
Overloaded with calendar invitations?
Frustrated by wasteful meetings and an ever-growing workload?

 

Then you know that being busy does not mean being productive. Most workers are being asked to take on more responsibilities with less support, advised to simply ‘be innovative.’ But you only have a finite amount of energy and thinking capacity available to you in a day. Most of us are wasting it on things that aren’t contributing to our most important work: the activities that require problem solving, decision making and critical thinking.

Developed for business professionals, The First Two Hours teaches you how to design your day, rather than be at the mercy of it. Using research on neuroscience, energy flow and the body’s natural rhythms, it divides the workday into manageable blocks and helps you determine when you are most resourceful, and therefore when you should complete your most demanding tasks.

  • Optimise your day in blocks of two hours
  • Take back control of your work life by creating a workflow designed for you
  • Do your most important work at the right time of day so it gets the resources it deserves
  • Decide when you need to be ’on’ and when you can be ’available’ so you can maximise productivity

In a time of near-constant information overload, this practical handbook helps you focus on getting done what you need to get done, when you are best able to do it. By learning to invest your energy strategically, you can be in the driver’s seat every work day and achieve a level of productivity beyond what you thought possible.

3 tips to avoid working from home burnout

3 ways to avoid burnout when working from home

3 tips to avoid burnout when working from home

During 2019, working from home started to become available for office workers on an ad-hoc basis. As 2020 broke and the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, hard, this changed overnight.

Millions of employees around the world have had to make a sudden and unprecedented shift to remote work. Many find themselves feeling like they need to work all the time to signal their devotion and productivity. This results in some people struggling to create healthy work/home boundaries.

Even more than before, afternoons will blend with evenings, and weekdays will combine with weekend days, leaving a sense of limited time off.

This quickly leads to burnout when working from home. Worst of all it can make you feel that it is never ending, which makes the whole situation feel worse.

So, how can we “leave our work at the door” if we are no longer going out the door?

Research shows it will be necessary to:

  1. maintain physical and social boundaries
  2. preserve limits on how you use your time
  3. focus on your most important work

This simple guide gives advice on how you can “leave your work at the WFH door”

How to create a great home office - GKS Consultants

Do you work from home? Just a day or two a week, or longer, having the right environment is vital.

Just because you don’t have a lot of space, doesn’t mean you have to work hunched over your coffee table. Here’s how to carve out a workspace when space itself is at a premium.

When most people envision working from home, they picture a well-lit, spacious home office. Your fantasy office might have a sleek desk and a high-tech ergonomic chair. Or maybe an antique oak desk and a cushy leather chair is more your style.

But when you look around your flat or cluttered house, you quickly have to come to terms with reality.

  • Is there even enough room for a real desk?
  • How much work can you really get done on your couch?
  • Maybe you should just work while sitting on your bed, the way you did homework in university or college?

The possibility of carving a home office out of a tiny living space may seem impossible. But with some creativity and resourcefulness, you can build an office space that will help you enjoy working from home even more.

Here’s how to do it.
