Do you struggle with finishing projects on time? Are you looking for a more productive way to work? If so you should consider the advice offered by blogger Joel Runyon. He suggests implementing a workplace plan called "workstation popcorn." Here's how it works:

1. Write Down What You Need to Accomplish That Day

It's easy to waste precious minutes each day surfing the internet catching up on social media or watching mindless videos. In order to safeguard your time start each day by writing down a list of specific activities you need to complete by the end of the day. Make sure that you write down exact goals (for instance: "Write 1000 words about the upcoming case and send it to Marcy" or "set up three client meetings next week").

2. Break The List Into Three Equal Parts

Dividing your day into smaller more manageable chunks of time makes it easier to stay focused and on task. Once you've written down what you need to accomplish for the day break those activities into three equal parts. If you don't know how long it will take to complete each task simply estimate it.

3. Find Three Locations to Work From

Sometimes a change of scenery is the most helpful tool. Taking the time to stand stretch and move to a new location makes it easy to remain driven and focused. If you work in a more laidback setting you may be able to travel from a coffee shop to a cafe before heading back to the office. If you can't leave the office there are still some creative ways to switch up your ho-hum routine. For instance you can start by completing your first assignments at your stand up desk. Next move to a co-working workstation to complete the second round of tasks. Finally head to a conference room for a meeting (or back to your stand up desk).

Can't find three separate places to work? Simply convert your height adjustable desk from sitting to standing mode in order to break up the monotony of sitting in the same position for hours on end. Plus finding the perfect balance between sitting and standing has a slew of health benefits.

Want to implement the workstation popcorn method on your own? Start by converting your UpDesk from a sitting to standing desk several times a day.
