Staying organized is key to freeing up your time and keeping you balanced. Here are some quick, easy tips that you can start doing today to help you stay on the productive path.
SET THE TONE FOR THE WEEK
Mondays get a bad rap. They are the end to a relaxing weekend but can be the start to a productive and fulfilling week. While it may be tempting to take it easy on Monday, jumping right in can have long-lasting effects on your productivity throughout the week. Grab a coffee and organize your to-do list. You’ll thank yourself later!
TAKE THE TIME TO PRIORITIZE
If you feel like you’re running in place, prioritize! List all of your tasks that make up your day and determine which are urgent and not urgent. Urgent tasks include deadlines, pressing problems, and crises. Tackle these tasks first, but schedule time (an hour or two a day) to complete non-urgent tasks. These can include planning, continued education, and anything proactive that is beneficial to your business.
Holding yourself to deadlines is key to planning and executing your task list. Once you receive a project, we recommend breaking it down into bite-sized, small steps that can be turned into tasks and assigned accordingly. By using your task list in Podio, you can have a bird’s eye view of what step comes next in all of the projects you are working on. Set deadlines for yourself and hold yourself accountable.
