Time to work on productivity

Monday, April 01, 2019

I joined the Spring 5% challenge. I thought I would sit out until next season, but why wait? I put off a lot of things in life. You can always do it tomorrow is what my brain says. But then tomorrow I don't feel well, or I'm too tired, or I worked too many hours....there is always an excuse.

Right now I'm working on some time management tasks to make my to do lists less daunting and feel like I'm actually accomplishing something. Here are a few of my current goals:

1. Set a timer when at my computer to get up once an hour. During the time up I do a chore around the house or fit in some stretches and exercise.

2. Organize my tasks between what's important and what is an "I would like..." Tackle the important list first and then focus on the others if time allows.

3. Make realistic goals for time on tasks instead of simply putting everything as due sometime this week.

4. Only check email and social media once or twice a day instead of leaving it open on my computer all day.

These steps will hopefully make me more productive and happier as I won't sit here thinking of my giant list of to dos since I have a plan in action.

    Sounds good. Check this page out. It helped me to create my command center to get stuff done more efficiently. (You do not have to buy anything, but it helps to watch a free podcast.) emoticon emoticon

    This is a good list. What we focus on improves. Changing our routines a bit at a time works! emoticon emoticon emoticon
