Sales and marketing firm, Citipeak Promotions review their 5 top strategies for creating a productive work environment.

    LONDON, ENGLAND, November 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Working smarter, not harder, is an age-old motto. If a person is able to master the concept, then their working life will be easier. Everyone has 24 hours in a day to work with and success comes down to what a person is able to do in those hours. There are certain strategies that will help maximize work habits and productivity. Citipeak Promotions outline their top 5.

About Citipeak Promotions:

1. Parkinson's Law
British naval historian Cyril Northcote Parkinson observed 'If you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute to do'. Everyone has experienced Parkinson's Law at least once in their working life. The law provides great leverage for efficiency e.g. having shorter deadlines for a task. But make sure a sweet spot for productive work is found; rushed work can produce reckless work.

2. Finding your flow
Athletes call this being 'in the zone' - when a person is so focused they are numbed out to any distractions. Optimal performance needs to be balanced in between challenge and skill; a task too challenging and beyond skill level will send someone into anxiety and frustration, if it is not challenging enough, a person will fall into boredom.

3. Single tasking
There are many cases against multi-tasking because for some it becomes 'task-switching'. It's fine to juggle tasks, but if too many projects are on the go, a person can be spread too thin. A person's thoughts and efforts should be concentrate on the task at hand before moving on.

4. The 2-minute rule
It has been found that the most productive people capitalize on the little windows of time that open up during the day. Having a to-do list of smaller, two-minute tasks on hand for whenever a window appears, will increase productivity. A major cause of procrastination is due to overthinking the next step.

5. The willpower trinity
There are three powers of willpower: I will power, I won't power and I want power.
- I won't power is resisting temptation e.g. saying no to social media
- I will power is to choose an alternative behaviour
- I want power is remembering goals and visions for a business or career
