Boost up your Productivity with SMART work! -Avontix

   If we ask you to rate your productivity on a scale of 1-10, how would you rate yourself?

Where ever you are on the rating scale, the good news is, there are always opportunities to increase your level of output. For this, one must be very passionate and willing to experiment with different techniques.


  Don’t work hard, work smart!

Almost all of us must have heard this message coming from superiors, bosses or may be a friend or a family member… But what exactly is smart work?

The concept is to kill inefficiency, do things in a quicker and effective way, add intelligence and intuitiveness to tasks, and avoid silly errors.

This is the age of smart work not hard wok – Let’s look at a few tips on increasing your productivity, If they work, keep them; the ones that don’t, put them aside. One cut doesn’t fit all, you see!

Plan your tomorrow tonight: A quick 5 min plan for the next day always comes handy, Just imagine waking up with total clarity on how your day must go! How does it feel? Superb, isn’t it?!

Big rocks first: What does that mean? Well, the most important tasks come in first, so that the unimportant ones fall in place as required, like sand J


Hardest task first: This simply means you will deal with the hardest task first so that once it’s done the rest of the tasks flow like breeze!

One task at a time: No matter how efficient a juggler you are, this mantra almost always works! Focus on one task at a time, especially when the task needs brain work!

Ditch the unimportant: Segregate the “need-to-do” from “nice-to-do tasks”… That pretty much will set the priorities in perspective!


Use to-do and do-later list – Always: This must be your everyday exercise. It solves issues relating to time-management, overlooking, forgetting to do a few tasks etc. Whatever you fail to do on a particular day automatically adds up to “do-later list!” 


Effective vs Efficient: Effectiveness means doing the tasks that matter the most whereas efficiency means doing more tasks in less time. So, be effective first and then move to efficiency.


Do not procrastinate: How many things would you have achieved by now, had you not procrastinated?  Huge numbers right?! Exactly, do not – ever –procrastinate! Procrastination is such a bummer!


Wake up a little early and meditate: This is a magic wand that never fails to give results!


Delegate: It helps to not be overtly obsessed about having a hold on everything – Delegate tasks as required and watch your productivity zooming up.


Cut down distractions: Allot a specific time for distractions, lunch time may be? Your Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp etc can be handles at leisure.                   


Rest well and stay stress free: Nothing hampers productivity like skipping sleep and taking stress. Keep stress at bay!

There is no elevator to success, but we could definitely make climbing the flight of stairs easier and be way more productive if we follow the above few simple things!

So, Letssss Go!

With ever-changing legal and medical requirements, it is mandatory that all the procedures and processes performed by healthcare practitioners are recorded accurately not just for evidential purposes but for future references also. However, it is not possible for the physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to keep documenting each and every process performed by them in a written format. Hence, physicians take advantage of the technological advancements and record the procedures performed by them in audio files using an electronic device. Although these can serve as records, it is not easy to comprehend a physician’s voice file when the information is required. So, these voice files are transcribed into electronic documents and this process of transcribing is called medical transcription or healthcare documentation.  
The voice files given by the physicians for healthcare documentation include their office visits, emergency room …

Continuous Improvement – The Secret of Self Improvement -Avontix

What is that we typically do for self-improvement? Set a large goal; try to accomplish that in the least possible time. At the outset, this seems perfectly alright but does not work in practicality. It often leads to exhaustion, frustration and failure. This pattern needs to change; instead, we should aim for simple path of continuous improvement by slowly fine-tuning our everyday behavior and habits. Continuous improvement means, making minor changes and adjustments in our everyday life with the anticipation of a remarkable change over a period of time.

It’s not that easy to believe that small changes can lead to big shifts of improvement because we can’t see any notable accomplishments on a daily basis, BUT IT WORKS. Minor alterations don’t show results at that particular point of time but add up over a period, hence, we can see the results only in the long run; in fact, it is possible that we may happen that we may not even recognize it initially.



How do we go about it?
