Raising Your Work Capacity

When at school, some of us were honor students; the others studied with great difficulty. But a few years later you see it: the one who wasn’t very good in school owns a business and rides in a limousine. And the former excellent students appear to be incapable of WORKING.


Only work shows our worth. In order to work, it is necessary to have the ability to carry out tasks day by day. And any work should be executed carefully and not haphazardly, with a set degree of quality. Quality includes productivity, accuracy, reliability, fail-safety and other important parameters. And the capability to do high-quality work is your work capacity.


How can a woman prolong her “burst of energy” periods? Can she work for a long time without endangering her work capacity? Yes, she can! Knowing the phases of your work capacity, it is possible to keep and restore it.


Anticipation of work


They say that a major part of a journey is passing through the gate. The pianist diligently sits down at the piano and, before touching the keys with her hands, she plays the first bars in her mind.


And how do women prepare for the usual daily work, for example, at an office? Mostly, they don’t! But some of them do. Successful businesswomen plan their work beforehand, think it over and anticipate it! They enter the initial phase of their work capacity - a preworking condition. In this stage, it’s still rather early to work with all your energy. You have to control your conditions, and their changes. In the stage of getting ready to work, it’s necessary to get yourself in the condition for your full work capacity as soon as possible. How to do that?


If training and instruction are not done haphazardly but rationally, they will allow the raising of labor productivity by 20-25 percent. With a sensible plan of work and rest, the increase of interest in work will produce the same effect. Self-checking of one’s work capacity will lift productivity by another 10-20 percent. Good posture and physical exercises during breaks will also provide a gain of 5 percent! But what if the work is mental? It’s still the same. A warm-up will prepare all the systems of the body for work. It activates your memory, perception and operative thinking.


Getting to work


The horsewoman leaving a stable doesn’t begin with a gallop. First she will go at a slow pace, and then increase it. She will try to feel her own condition and that of her horse. Then she will set off at a trot. A trot – at a walking pace. Only after a warm-up will she gallop.


The businesswoman cannot rush straight away either. You need to prepare yourself for work.


It happens that you don’t have time to get ready for work. How do you act in such a situation? First of all, no fuss, no haste! Remember: Haste makes waste! Your brain needs its own ‘runway.’


Having risen to the top of your work capacity, it is necessary to stay there as long as possible.


You’ll be able to ride the crest of the wave of work capacity for a long time if you replenish your spent energies promptly. Their charge and renewal should be counterbalanced. For this purpose it is necessary to listen sensitively to your body during work. If energy is not replenished, work capacity falls.




Even the longest legs come to an end somewhere. A person gets tired of even his favorite job. According to Byron, "And the heart must pause to breathe, And love itself have rest.”


Endurance is the ability to work for a long time, resisting exhaustion. It is the main parameter of work capacity. But endurance itself has certain limits behind which work capacity falls and exhaustion (an old age of work capacity) appears. This phase of work capacity is the natural response of a body to work.


Exhaustion strikes both mind and body. But if the body of a businesswoman gets tired from a lack of movement, her psyche suffers from overwork. And maybe this is good, if manual housework takes care of this problem.


Working in comfort, but under a constant nervous strain, which cannot be relieved by physical activity, the woman loses the balance between her mental and physical energies.


Signs of exhaustion:


  • You frequently make mistakes; you can’t understand things at first;
  • You are drowsy (you nod off to sleep), you constantly yawn, your eyelids become heavy and stick together, and you can hardly open your eyes.
  • Your eyes hurt;
  • Movements are slowed down; you constantly want to change position;
  • your mouth is dry;
  • you can’t concentrate on your work;
  • you find yourself dreaming of something pleasant;
  • you are indifferent to current affairs;
  • you lose control over your attention.
