Manage Office Work Effectively

Working in office can get tricky as the work load increases day by day. Here are some tips to manage the work overload.


  1. Sort out your mailbox/ E - mails/ Letters / Office Memo: Most of the times work gets piled up due to unorganized work practices. The first step is to clean up the space - mailbox, drawers, notebooks, memos etc. Keep a notebook or a notepad handy while doing so.
  2. Make a list of things to do: As you are organising, make a bucket list of things to do as and when you come across them.
  3. Categorise the things to do: Categorise your bucket list of things into various categories like - Administrative, Follow up, Caonceptualization etc. This will help you to get a clear idea of your work.
  4. Prioritise the work: Once you have catrgorised the work, prioritise it into time periods. How much is imperitive to be done today, in next two days, for next week and follow through accordingly
  5. Stick to your list, use the sun-down rule: If you have decided you will close x number of things in a day, close them before you leave office. This is called sun- down rule and will help to build credibility at workplace.
