It’s no secret that effectively managing busy workloads is the key to a productive, low stress workday. But when time’s at a premium due to last minute meetings or seriously tight deadlines, staying organised can be a real challenge. But there are ways to make things easier.
By breaking up your work day into individual jobs, things quickly feel more achievable. You’ll be able to focus your undivided attention on each task and feel like you’re steadily making progress. And that’s where our office essentials come in. They’ll help you speed up your processes, work more efficiently and stay organised and in control of your work flow all day, every day.
So, let’s look at some of the ways our office essentials can help you get through those crazy work schedules in one piece.
Post-it® Super Sticky Notes are a great way to plan the day ahead. The super strong adhesive means you can stick them to a variety of surfaces and they’ll stay there for as long as you need them. As a way to boost your effectiveness at work, they should be an essential part of your stationery stockpile. That’s because you can set them out in different colours to prioritise your jobs, then simply remove one-by-one as they’ve been completed. You’ll keep track of progress, know what you need to do next and then rearrange as necessary. And with a choice of plain or lined, small or large, and in a variety of eye-catching colours, you’ll be writing reminders, to-do lists and memos that are certain to get noticed.
For those who want to add extra time to their busy days, Post-it® Super Sticky Z-Notes will give you the helping hand you need. Designed for the demands of the modern workplace, the convenient pop up dispenser system means you only need one hand to peel, stick and write. They come in a range of styles to match the funkiest tastes and the trendiest work spaces. And with Post-it® Z-Notes refills available in a range of vibrant colours, you can colour map your way through even the busiest of days.
Make your mark
Post-it® Flags and Post-it® Tabs are also a great way to stay on track for a productive day. They’re bright, small and the perfect way to index and arrange your workload. By colour-coding these quick and easy markers in your calendars, notebooks or organisers, you can prioritise by importance: red for urgent, yellow for needs doing, and green for reference and reminders. They’re a visual navigation tool that will stop you wasting precious time, so you can get to the next job.
As your day progresses you can remove or swap the markers to see just how much of an impact you’re making, and having a visual marker of your daily progress does wonders for your motivation and sense of accomplishment.
A Magic Touch
Scotch® Magic™ Tape is a must-have for the efficient, organised workplace. With a cool, frosty look on the roll but almost invisible to the eye when applied to paper or card, the gentle yet strong adhesive means you can stick and re-stick it again (should you change your mind). Best of all, you can write down notes on the back of this clear tape, making it great for temporarily marking up printed documents and reports in a flash. They’re available with hand dispensers (if you’re always on the move), or weighted dispensers for your desk. Either way, it’s a great addition to your office collection.
