High Achievers at Work Can Have Fun: NJ Productivity Expert Says Organization Is Key

RIDGEWOOD, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2006 -- Do you sit at your desk wondering what to do first? Do you spend hours of time looking for paper and electronic documents? Are there distracting stacks of paper all around?

You're not alone. Anne Sedler, Professional Organizing Consultant and Trainer, is the founder of HFD Productivity Associates in Ridgewood. She knows that countless individuals waste time at work doing things the hard way. That affects bottom-line results, creates stress, and leaves vital personal time to chance. It also prevents people from actually enjoying their jobs.

Sedler says some of the biggest challenges in the office are:

--  Information overload
--  Inefficient use of time
--  Distractions that derail focus
According to Sedler, the key is to learn to use time effectively, prioritize your workload, and create an environment to support your work style. "A system for managing incoming information that prevents paper and email clutter is crucial. A good filing system, both paper and electronic, with speedy retrieval capability is essential. You also need to build focus time into your schedule for your highest priority tasks. These small changes can result in a productive day that's enjoyable at the same time."

She recommends that when delegating, choose the right people and be clear about what you want. Prevent being derailed by activities that don't support established goals. Determine your priorities and take action. For the procrastinators, go ahead and start your project because it's not about perfection, it's about striving for excellence.

HFD works with small to mid-sized businesses, corporate groups and entrepreneurs. Sedler's goal is to help these organizations become more productive by helping define goals and then providing the right tools and training to support them. She believes everyone can be remarkable at work, and still have time for fun.
