Like many individuals, January, for me, is a chance to set new objectives. And infrequently my skilled objectives have an overarching theme: Be extra productive.
To that finish, yearly I am going out and purchase a reasonably new planner that I can use to jot down my duties. One way or the other I assumed simply having a planner would magically make me productive, that my time administration points would simply soften away.
In fact, you’ll be able to personal a planner full with highlighted dates and sticky notes and nonetheless not get executed something that truly issues.
I used to be typically plagued with this downside. I might write down my to-dos in no specific order, itemizing them out as they popped into my head. On busy days, my to-do checklist may be 10 or 15 bullet factors lengthy. I would have essential deadlines for work penciled in proper subsequent to due dates for payments and outings with buddies. There was no rhyme or motive, simply no matter I had wished to get executed that day was scribbled there.
It lacked prioritization and offered no technique for time-management, so I had a warped sense of what I may truly accomplish in a day.
Then I bought a brand new planner from my boyfriend, who’s at all times discovering small and sneaky methods to make my life simpler. It was the instrument I did not even know I wanted, and it modified the sport for me.
It is referred to as the Productiveness Planner by Clever Change (for $24.95). What it does for me that different planners have not, is present a practical planning technique on how you can sort out my to-do checklist as an alternative of only a fairly web page on which to write down it.
