“At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if you worked 10 hours per day, what matters is what you’re getting in the time that you’re given, not over time. Over time should be kept for doing extra purposes,” says Jherinson Almonte, managing director of Critical Mass Global. At Critical Mass Global, we believe that whether you’re working at a traditional 9-5 job or something else that’s 8 hours, we know like many Americans, we all struggle with productivity. “Luckily there’s a cure for lack of productivity. This life-long struggle of trying to get things done has been tested and tried with some scientific theories, we did some research and found 3 ways to increase productivity. This shows that there are other ways to work effectively and not longer,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global.
The biggest time consumer we struggle with is that we’re not prepared. “Studies we read show that when you create a planned schedule and follow it, your brain is likely to make sure you stick to it,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global. Research shows that 71% had followed the plan and landed a successful strategy to implement whatever they had on their schedule.
Studies show that workers that take breaks with co-workers they are friendly with or friends, in general, are more productive than those that don’t take any breaks. This study also portrayed that 36% of people were more productive than they would be. “It’s important to have a social break, we’re human beings and to unplug we need an outlet, other human beings become helpful in that aspect,” says Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global.
Organizing yourself or decluttering really helps put everything together. Once you feel like everything around you is clean and straight — your plans will follow. Studies show that too much clutter causes brain activity to decrease. Your brain becomes distracted by other things — so simple things like keeping a clean space when working or organizing your workspace helps the flow of productivity.
