Time flies by. No longer are your days spent for recess adventures and biology—you’re a grown-up now, with grown-up problems and responsibilities, and the professional world can be ruthless sometimes. Tight deadlines and work pressure are your day-to-day routine now. Except that it doesn’t have to be like that. Yes, work can be dreadful, but it is a brand-new life for you, and where there’s will there’s a way. So expand your horizons and get your work done effectively with these five helpful tips.

Start a bullet journal

A bullet journal might be one of the most crucial parts of productivity. It helps you keep track of what you’ve done, what you have to do, and your long-term goals. If you’re a responsible person juggling many things all at once, it can be very helpful to jot everything down in your journal. The perfect reason why a literal bullet journal is way more preferable than a productivity app is that you can customise your journal to align it with your needs and your aesthetic taste.

Do things one by one

Whether you are a freelance artist or a fresh accountant, your job can be tremendously overwhelming from time to time. Responsibilities will be thrown at you all at once and it will be tempting for you to multitask and get everything done as soon as possible. The error here is that you are more prone to be clumsy and leave out little details or do them badly. The secret to doing everything the best you can is to just take a deep breath, sort out everything you have on at that moment, and do each of them carefully. Not only you will get your job done properly, it is actually so much more time efficient.

Always double check

We are not programmed. One of the most cherished aspects of being human is how we are bound to make mistakes—even the terrible ones. Admittedly, it can be frustrating to make errors when doing your job, but the fear of mistakes may prevent you from doing your job at all. The key to this is to always double check. Did you misspell any words? Did you miscalculate your numbers? Did you mispronounce any name? Sparing a few minutes before submitting your work can easily save you humiliation.

Focus on the end-game

No matter what you want to be in life, do not settle for a dead-end job. Having a long-term goal can be one of the most important motivational tools to keep you going and doing a good job. Perhaps you aim to get promoted to the executive board; perhaps you dream of taking a vacation to Rome; or of building your own business by the time you have enough. Small goals can be thrilling too, like treating your friends to a grand birthday party or taking your loved one to a five-star gourmet dinner. Doing your job will be less dreadful when you’ve got these happy goals in mind.
