When you are looking for productivity tools, don’t forget
pen and paper. In the world of high-tech, don’t “dis” low-tech. Lists of all
kinds are one of the greatest productivity tools.
you never cross the items all off, you’ll soon feel defeated. Try some of these
tips for success.
Instead of listing every little detail of
everything you need to do, try a focused approach. Pick a set number such as
the Five Most Important Things to Do Today. Focus on finishing those five.
End your workday with a list for tomorrow. That
way, your off time will allow you to refresh instead of mulling over and over
what needs to be done tomorrow.
Keep a separate list for personal items. Again,
use an appropriate and manageable number of items.
From your list, do the worst first. Whatever is
on your list that you deem as unpleasant or a big challenge, then tackle it
first when you have energy and a full day ahead of you. Everything else on your
list will be easier from that point onward.
Until next time …
