Internet : vriend of vijand?

Internet is enorm handig : je kan veel zaken veel sneller doen dan 20 jaar geleden. Het is ook erg gebruiksvriendelijk, zelfs kinderen vinden er hun weg op.

Toch kan internet ook een oorzaak zijn van tijdverspilling op het werk. Je vindt er massa’s informatie, in alle geuren en kleuren. Als je iets begint op te zoeken, is de kans zeer groot dat je wordt afgeleid en andere zaken begint te lezen. Na een tijdje ben je zover afgedwaald dat je helemaal niet meer werk-gerelateerd aan het zoeken bent.

Hieronder een paar tips om gefocused te blijven en niet van je werk af te dwalen.

Gebruik een “news reader”
Met een news reader kan je je abonneren op blogs en nieuwsbronnen. Hij houdt bij welke artikels je al gelezen hebt en welke nieuw zijn. Zo hoef je niet elke dag die bepaalde websites te raadplegen om het laatste nieuws mee te pikken. Sommige mensen volgen soms meer dan 20 sites, dus je ziet dat het gebruik van zo’n news reader erg tijdsbesparend is.
Binnenkort verschijnt er nog een apart artikel over news readers.

Blijf geconcentreerd
Als je iets moet opzoeken, schrijf dan eerst je vraag op een kladpapier (*). Als je dit zo voor je hebt, blijf je gericht bezig met je opzoekwerk. Als je, al zoekend, iets anders interessant tegenkomt dat je verder wil bekijken, schrijf dit dan ook op. Je vergeet het niet en je kan het later bekijken.
(*) op deze website vind je allerlei soorten papier om notities te maken. Je klikt op een voorbeeld en dan bepaal je zelf hoe groot je blad wordt, hoeveel lijnen je erop wil, … en dan afprinten.
Je kan ook allerlei kalenders afprinten.

Onderbreek je werk niet om te surfen.
Terwijl we werken, denken we toch nog aan andere zaken. Als je bezig bent met een tekst, presentatie of spreadsheet, onderbreek je werk dan niet om iets op te zoeken. Schrijf je gedachte op, vergeet het en werk verder. Als je later een onderbreking neemt, kan je je ermee bezig houden.

Ga ergens zitten waar geen internet is.
Ik heb bij mezelf gemerkt, dat ik het meest geconcentreerd werk, als ik gewoon mijn connectie verbreek en begin te schrijven. Anders is er toch die neiging om snel even een explorer-venster open te klikken.
Als ik werk zonder connnectie, ben ik meer gefocused.

Openen van web-browser mag niet je eerste actie zijn
Als je begint te werken, doe dan eerst iets anders. Het hoeft niet per se een belangrijke taak te zijn, maar doe een taak waar je geen internet bij nodig hebt; Het zorgt ervoor dat je houding al op het juiste spoor zit. Hoe dikwijls gebeurt het immers niet dat we iets interessant zien en dan ineens een half uur ( en soms meer) tijd verliezen zonder het zelf te realiseren.

Je keuze van homepagina
Zorg ervoor dat je home page niet ingesteld is op een interessante site (bv: je krant, je favoriete blog, buitenlandse technologie-site, …). Dit is erom vragen natuurlijk. Elke keer als je je web-browser opent, zie je altijd wel iets wat je nog ‘even’ snel tussendoor kan lezen.
Mijn homepagina is ingesteld op Google. Simpel.

Verspil jij veel tijd op het internet of heb je de nodige zelfbeheersing ?
Heb je zelf manieren om je niet te laten verleiden tot surfen tijdens je werk ? Je bent altijd welkom om commentaar achter te laten.
