Work smarter with Tempo’s suite of agile software tools for JIRA

It’s a common scenario for most team members today:

You start the day with an idea of what you need to work on and accomplish by the end of the day. But when you check your email in the morning, a number of other demands crowd in, instant messages begin popping up like a game of whack-a-mole, meetings last longer than scheduled, and people start dropping by for “a quick question” that will “only take a minute.” Suddenly, you realize that hours have vanished into addressing other matters while your primary tasks have gone untouched. Multiply that by five, and by the end of the week, you and others on your team have accomplished a fraction of what you were meant to do. How do people ever get anything done nowadays?

The key to accomplishing more at work isn’t working more. It’s working smarter. It’s important to recognize the difference between working hard and working smart; not just for ourselves, but for those we lead.

There are a few initiatives that can help turn things around:

  • Planning
  • Sharing priorities
  • Delegating tasks

  • Analyzing what works and what doesn’t
  • Learning from mistakes
