Four Hacks to Make Your Workday Worry-Free

June 24, 2020

Minor inconveniences, like forgetting a password or a paper jam, can add up to lost time and productivity during your day. Whether you’re working from home or the office, here are four hacks to help make your workday worry-free.

  1. Do the most important task first

When you begin your workday and make your daily to-do list, prioritize your three most important tasks. These are the big, tough tasks for your day that you really need to get done – and the ones that would keep you in the office late if they are not completed. Work on those before you move on to less critical tasks and you’ll find you feel a whole lot more productive at the end of the day.

  1. Use a password manager

If you use the internet, then you have passwords to memorize – both for your personal and professional apps and databases. Considering many of these services require users to change their passwords often, you could be wasting time searching for these regularly. Download a password manager, such as Lastpass or Dashlane, so that you don’t waste all your time and energy remembering or searching for login passwords.

  1. Use paper with a 99.99% Jam-Free® Performance Guarantee

Eliminating the stress of being late to a meeting or stopping the flow of your day because of an annoying paper jam is simple with the right paper. Boise® ASPEN®, Boise POLARIS®, and Boise® X-9® all come with a 99.99% Jam-Free® Performance Guarantee, making them worry-free options that perform flawlessly to keep your day running smoothly. Engineered for consistent and reliable run-ability, your paper will never come out of the printer smeared or crumpled, producing the look you desire for your documents.

  1. Implement the two-minute rule

Small tasks will pop-up throughout your day and letting them accumulate can add unnecessary stress to your workload. Instead, if you know you can complete the task in under two minutes, do it now. If it will take longer than two minutes, save the task to complete after your top priorities.
