Tomorrow is Friday and it's hailed as the end of the work week. But with that end there is a crunch to get your job done and sometimes that means working past the quitting hour and missing out on a round of after work food and drinks with your friends and family.  SO with some guidance from productivity experts, here is how you can wrap up Friday early and get started on the weekend sooner.  First, front load your work week with the most difficult tasks at the beginning of the week. Prioritize your to-do list with the most complicated, long lead time items early so that you have enough time and energy to have them completed before Friday. 23% of employees say meetings, emails and co-workers dropping by waste the most time. So if you can, keep Friday completely clear of meetings and most to-do list items. As taboo as it sounds, take some work home. A FlexJob survey found two-thirds of people say they’re more productive working from home because of fewer interruptions from colleagues, less distraction and a more comfortable environment. Finally, listening to music can increase your focus by 15% and get those daunting tasks done before the last day of the work week.
