They say that competition in the workplace is healthy; it forces us to do our best, which is why it is imperative to make sure one is capable of handling anything that comes one’s way. Productivity, positivity and planning are the three P’s that ensures success in the workplace and by enforcing them into your daily work routine, one is sure to benefit from the results.

There are days where work may seem like a tedious stint, and one lacks the motivation to get through the day; this is when one should focus on productivity. Staying productive is pivotal to ensure a successful day at the office. Challenge yourself and set realistic goals. Develop methods of completing tasks in new ways, switch it up but remain consistent. Take short breaks, to recollect thoughts and get those creative juices flowing. Productivity allows one to be efficient and strategic with one’s planning, make a list and jot down all of the important tasks to tackle on first.

When one focuses on being positive within the working environment, the job is half done. Imparting positivity in yourself will reflect in the work that you are doing, and success will be the end result. Remain confident in all that you do and accept critique from peers with a positive attitude.

The third P of success is one that many individuals find difficult to commit to, and that is planning. Planning your day and week is a helpful approach to lessen the workload and free up time to complete other tasks. Curate weekly planners, reminders and lists of important tasks, to simplify the 9 to 5 working day. Efficient planning results in ample work being completed, and in turn boosts your motivation to start new tasks and finish them on time. In addition to planning your day coherently implement proper time management skills by identifying time thieves and plan your tasks out in ways that benefit you and the company.

One should always remember that your job should not be something that discourages you, instead make every day as productive and positive as possible. Incorporate the three P’s of success into your daily work routine and remember to do what you love and love what you do. "The secret of success is consistency of purpose." - Benjamin Disraeli
