Motivation and Tasks
BACK TO BUSINESS
The holidays are over. That means it’s time to get back to business. We are all likely procrastinating and not feeling very productive. The world does not stop, and your money can not stop. Don’t worry, below is a set of tips and reminders to get you back into the working routine. Getting back to business after the holidays doesn’t need to be a drag.
The last thing you want to be doing is handling a large project upon returning to work.
JUST DO IT
Depending on your personality, you may not like starting small. Other people would like to rip the bandaid off and tackle things head-on and get them over with. The thought of a challenge can make you inspired and motivated. If this is the case, then starting with the most difficult task will make you feel like you accomplished something.
The anxiety of having a lot to do is much worse than actually doing it. This happens to me quite often because I assume tasks are going to be more arduous than they are. By jumping in head first, it can ease anxiety, get work done, and get you back to business.
Going back to work to notice a stack of papers as part of your to-do list can be overwhelming. The simple word “deligation” can be very powerful. Organize all papers and start sending some of the work around the office for others to do so you can focus on more important work.
Don’t have others to delegate tasks too? Simple, organize piles of least important to most important and easy to complicated tasks. This will help with the overwhelmed feeling and gather your processes on which task to start on first.
Break room kitchen sinks, restroom drains, or anywhere pipes are located, can become even more smelly in the winter time. You ask, Why? How do I cure this problem? How do I prevent this? These problems can quickly drive clients away. Don’t worry, answers to these problems below can quickly relieve the issues.
DRAIN AND ODORS
Sometimes you might think you are up-to-date with facility Maintenance, but the office still smells. This could be because some pipes are not being used as often causing the build-up of scum, releasing odors. Other times, the odor is coming from a place that is used often, such as the kitchenette pipes or restroom pipes. Grease, food, and other wastes not meant to go down the drain can clog the drains.
