Sarah Kessler has an article up at Mashable that offers 37 tips for working anywhere. It’s from 2010, but still very relevant. Some of the best tips are those designed for the average white collar worker in a typical office environment. Not surprisingly, these tips are all related to time management. At Cubicles Office Environments, we know there’s a lot to be said for the difference ergonomic office furniture can make in productivity. But work habits play a huge role in efficiency as well. Some of Sarah’s advice involves a lot of will power. For example, you might have to physically restrain yourself from checking email for the first 45 minutes at work. Other tips take the burden off of you and use technology to help you stay on track. For example, there’s an application you can install on your computer that blocks internet access for a preselected time period. It could be the key to weaning yourself off of social media and other time sucks at work.
