Often, it gets worrisome when you are under-performing at your place of work. Your boss might even threaten to sack you because you are not performing as expected; this can send you in to bouts of depression.

Below are some ways to improve your performance in your place of work:

Organise, plan and prioritise

The best way to have a total control of how your day will go is by planning ahead. Organise the tasks you have to perform and prioritise them such that you do the big ones early, before you get tired and do the little and easy ones later. Have a to-do list that will make your work easier. Once you are done with a task, you cancel it from the to-do list and move to the next one.


Avoid multi-tasking

Most people think they do well when they multi-task, however, multi-tasking can reduce your efficiency and you get to use more time doing what you could have done faster. Whenever you start working at more than one thing at a time, take a step back and determine which task is more important and focus entirely on it. Working on one task at a time makes you faster, less stressed and less prone to making mistakes.


Communication is key, ensure you communicate effectively with your colleagues. Never assume or think they know what you did not tell them. Whenever you are also uncertain about some things, ask. This will ensure you perform better and smoothly at your place of work.

Set milestones

Set milestones that will improve you in all aspects. It is okay to be bold when setting goals to improve work performance. The problem is that big projects can become overwhelming. By breaking those big personal and professional projects into smaller sections, you’ll stay motivated during each victory you achieve.
