Many of us blame low productivity at work on some outside factors. Sometimes, they might be the reasons, but inside factors may have a greater impact.
1. Self-doubt and Denial When a huge and tricky task is assigned, do you feel like you’re incapable of doing it and tend to procrastinate? If so, changing your mindset that may help. Step out of your comfort zone, concentrate on your actual growth and success, and build your confidence. And don’t be afraid to ask others for help.
2. Perfectionism Perfectionism sounds good. It shows that you have high standards and devote yourself to high-quality work. But have you thought about the time consumed because of it? The truth is, even if you spend many hours on something, it might only just be slightly better than what you did in a relatively shorter time.
3. Poor boundaries It is a common phenomenon to respond ‘yes’ to all assigned tasks to present that you are a capable and self-motivated employee. But with so much on your plate, you may hardly feel productive. So, setting bottom lines and achievable expectations is how you demonstrate your value at work because that’s when you can get more things done.
