informed to your point and then keep the information for later use. Be sure to take your lunch and breaks as scheduled. Some people have the idea that they should work through their lunch that they will be more productive. This is not true. People who skip their lunch often get less done because they get burned out. You need to take a break once in a while for lunch and coffee so that you can be more effective at work. Keep up to date with the latest computer technology that can also help you stay more organized. There are many office programs available that you can use for this purpose. I worked at an office once where one woman got promoted continually because she kept the company up to date on all of the latest software that better organized the office. She ended up carving out her own position by simply keeping abreast of technology, learning it and then teaching it to others. Make sure that you keep your computer free from dust and use a tool that will keep the keyboard clean. Keep coffee and drinks away from the computer so that you do not end up spilling it on the keyboard and harming your computer. If you smoke, take the minimal amount of breaks for a cigarette. Most companies allow employees who smoke to go outside for cigarettes during their breaks or other times. You should not spend too much time doing this as it eats into your working time. By keeping your office papers organized, using the right organizational tools and making sure that you make the most of your time when you are in the office, you will find that you are much more productive. Keeping a list of goals and writing them down is one way that you can make sure that you are doing your job each day. Remember to be flexible enough so that you can help with emergency situations that arise during working hours.
