well you could just palm mute the note a little bit. but if you want to play even more staccato than that, what i do is right after i pick the note i quickly stop it with the other side of my pick. hope fully that makes sense, its kinda hard to explain just with text hah.

The muting technique works really well, as long as you keep the palm within really close range of the strings without lifting away.

Also, you could try easing the fretting fingers off the strings slightly after playing the note. Just don't take the fingers off altogether or you may get unwanted noise from open strings.
