Being online is always a massive distraction !

You probably have access to a lot of things at work that keep you distracted. Perhaps your computer can be used to go check out your social media account or maybe there’s game on your phone you could play. There are so many ways to avoid work that it’s almost impossible to get much done. You have to tell yourself that you will only be able to do any activities that are not your job when it’s break time or after work. Turn off your phone, so you can’t hear it and make sure you stay off of any website that has nothing to do with your job.

Have Goals

A lot of people tend just to work because that’s what they’re supposed to do. That’s all fine and well, but you will feel a lot more compelled to do more if you set some goals for yourself. These shouldn’t just be big daily goals, either, because that can be overwhelming. Instead, make mini-achievements that you can reach such as doing so many tasks before your first break. If you don’t meet your goals you can rework them and once you can reach them, you can add a little more to what you do day by day.

Be Careful With Rewarding Yourself

After you get tasks done and are more productive at work, you can reward yourself on a somewhat regular basis. Did you do more this week than you did the previous week? Then maybe it’s time to take yourself out on your day off to a movie. Doing more work may lead to you being able to afford better rewards for yourself. However, don’t let these things get in the way of you being productive at work. For example, you may want to avoid treating yourself to a big bottle of wine, so you don’t show up the next day hungover.
