If you are working in SharePoint 2013 designer workflow, sometimes when you update in the workflow it did not reflect immediately. This happens with SharePoint designer 2010 workflows also.

SharePoint 2013:
Open SharePoint designer 2013, then go to File -> Options.

In the SharePoint Designer Options dialog box, click on the Application Options button as shown in the fig below:

Now Restart SharePoint designer and publish the workflow again. It should reflect the changes now.

SharePoint 2010:
Close SharePoint designer 2010 and then Navigate to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache directory and delete everything from this directory.
Again navigate to %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache and delete everything from this directory.
