Do you sometimes put things off, especially projects that are overwhelming, tedious, or distasteful?
Of course you do! We all do! Today is the first of two posts on improving your productivity:
- Set Realistic Goals–remember that Daily Shoring tip? Break down tasks as you plan them. Here are two blog posts from 43folders.com: Building a Smarter To Do List Part 1 and Building a Smarter To Do List Part II.
Spend a few minutes today reading the information in the 43folders blog posts, or if that’s overwhelming, review Set a Realistic Goal. Start writing out the steps for a goal/project you have. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated–if you need something easy, focus on a simple task around your home. It can be something you do on a regular basis, like housekeeping–that’s fine for practicing these productivity techniques.
Tomorrow, we’ll work on getting started!
