Tiny Things That Could Help

         I don’t know what about you guys, but for me several days before Christmas and New Year are always the toughest. This is the time when I have to complete all the short- and long-time tasks and projects, check up the overall state of my orders and clear out all inconvenient moments with my clients. Regarding the fact that I am usually exhausted with other holiday preparations and that the thoughts about nearing rest don’t always help, I decided to make a list of several tips that don’t require many hard actions, but can actually simplify your work these days.

1)    Use the team of support. Depending on what your priorities are, use your business partner’s help in sorting out your orders or ask your relatives to give you a hand in cleaning up the house and preparing festive food. You won’t be able to both finish your work and make holiday preparations qualitatively.
2)    Don’t lose time in vain. In your everyday life you may like to stretch the shortest task out for the whole day by making short bre
aks and looking through the news in social networks from time to time. Right now it’s the worst tactics possible. Break your work into 3 or 4 big parts every day and don’t allow yourself get distracted until you finish at least one of them.
3)    Make a report. Create to-do list, where you will be able to mark all the accomplished tasks. Then, when all the assignments will be written and orders will be sent, try to pull yourself up and make a full year report. There you may write down the quantity of accomplished orders, good (and bad) feedbacks from your customers and also your plans for the next year.

          Perhaps, right now you are staring at the monstrous amount of work you need to get done before Christmas and wishing to be far, far away from all of it, but don’t worry. It’s not that hard. After all, this happens every year and you manage to figure it out every single time.
