Start that Project on Tuesday!

Filed under: General HR Buzz — Tags: 6:00 am

Have you ever been asked, “What is your most productive time of day?”  For many years, that question was posed to help employees identify the most productive time of day for them to accomplish the most work.  Most people would agree they are more productive in the morning.  However, have you ever thought about what day of the week you are most productive?

Accountemps, a specialized staffing service, recently published a survey that indicated 39 percent of 300 HR managers polled in the U.S. reported Tuesday as the best day for peak productivity.  The survey stated that Thursdays and Fridays are the worst days coming in at 3 percent each.

The Chairman of Accountemps, Max Messmer, commented that, “Many workers spend Monday catching up from the previous week and planning the one ahead.  On Tuesday, employees may begin to have time to focus on individual tasks and become more productive.  The goal should be to maintain the positive momentum established on Tuesday throughout the week.”

The survey included some tips to increase productivity.  One was to “Axe the Excess” by not having a “to do” list so long that it becomes overwhelming and impossible.  Another is to “Know Your Prime Time” for when you are most productive and tackle your most critical tasks then.

Remember, this doesn’t mean that you can’t accomplish anything unless it is Tuesday, and this new knowledge and self-awareness is not to be used as an excuse to that end!
