Entrepreneur Haider Ali Khan Shares 5 Behavioral Changes That Make You More Effective

We all know of working days that do not degenerate as we have anticipated. We get distracted, do not get done enough, focus on tasks that are not important, etc. How can you take control back and become more productive and motivated?

A good way is these 5 simple behavioural changes that we have gathered from entrepreneur Haider Ali Khan on effective habits in the workplace:

1. Start The Day Positively

Eat a healthy breakfast. You have probably heard it a thousand times before, but there is something about the talk. A healthy breakfast makes you productive and full of energy from the morning onwards. Vary your diet and avoid eating the same thing for lunch every day. Taking care of yourself, your body and your brain provides a lot of energy and focus throughout the day.

Start the day with a positive mindset. You can neither change the weather nor the traffic. You can only change your mood.

2. Be Collegial

Happy employees are good employees. Make friends with your colleagues. You already spend most of your day with them, and it makes working life more valuable and increases motivation.

Therefore, also spend time on small talk in the office. It is not a waste of time, it is an investment in well-being. See the positive and valuable in your colleagues and they will respect you more.

Share the good experiences that happen to you. Get them told. Not only will it strengthen your social bonds, but it will also force you to notice the positive moments. Smile and always be welcoming. It is contagious and it will automatically bring up your own mood.

3. Stop Multitasking

Do one thing at a time. Multitasking three tasks at the same time mean that none of them is solved efficiently. Our brains simply have a natural limit to how many thoughts we can focus on at a time. Avoid mistakes and concentration failures by taking one thing at a time. At the same time, it will stimulate your creativity.

4. Remove Temptations

Whether it is social media, email, working with more than one screen or device, noise from the surroundings or the like. Go if necessary. a short walk of five to ten minutes or work concentrated in intervals of five to fifteen minutes at a time with a few minutes break in between.

Avoid skipping actions by involving others in your commitments. It can be a boss or an employee. Maybe the responsibility should even be accompanied by consequences and rewards if it can motivate you.

5. Make A List

To-do lists also help against skipping actions. Make e.g. a list before you go home from work, listing five goals you would like to achieve the next day. In addition, have another list where you note down three personal goals you would like to achieve.

It could be buying a birthday present for your uncle or booking a train ticket for the weekend. Remember to set only realistic goals and avoid letting the list cover the entire week. It just risks making you stressed.

Make each goal concrete, clear and simple: Call the boss regarding project X, send an email to Y regarding a new customer, talk to the sales department about Z, etc. If the list becomes too inaccurate, it will stress you more than help you. Keep the list short and to the point and do not spend more than five minutes making it.
