Feeling ineffective at work? Here are some suggestions to spruce up your work style and to get you back into a zone of working effectively.


  1. 1
    Avoid distractions.
  2. 2
    Overcome procrastination. Do what you can do now rather than wait until later.
  3. 3
    Seek further training. If you feel that you're not effective at doing something because you don't know enough about it, ask your supervisor or boss if you can attend training to improve your knowledge and ability to use it.
  4. 4
    Eat well. Do not skip breakfast or lunch and cut down on the sugary snacks. Eat healthy foods most of the time, to increase your effectiveness through being wide awake, and focused.
  5. 5
    Get adequate sleep every night. If you're not refreshed every day, you'll lack effectiveness at work.


  • Read all manuals and instructions related to your position, even if you think you know it already. If your workplace manuals or instructions are updated regularly, it's important to keep up-to-date. Equally, always ask questions about changes if you're not sure what to do.
