Over on the Pursuit Communications Instagram account recently I shared tips on how I stay productive. (LINK)
- Don’t let the “E-mail Monster” control your day I prioritise emails – with categories /importance /urgency. 📧
It keeps me on track (most of the time!) and the “email anxiety” levels to a minimum. I use different tags and then work through these according to the level of priority
- Pop it on silent – face down and get to work! Turning your mobile on to silent will help get the work done.
If it helps, consider changing your voicemail message. State in your message the time you expect to return the call. Most people will understand!
- I 🧡 a good “to do” list
It makes me feel organised and I can see at a glance what needs to be done.
I break my lists down into clients and then prioritise. I highlight super important tasks and cross them off first!
My lists are in my Kikki K planner, which goes EVERYWHERE with me.
- Get up and move – your health comes first. I’m guilty of not doing this enough. I’ve recently bought a Fitbit to make sure I do move enough. Being sedentary is one of the “hazards” of my job. More often than not, I’m sitting looking at my laptop for hours on end. My Fitbit really has made a huge difference in reminding me to get up and move and achieve my daily goals. What do you do to get moving?
- I’m a calendar girl… 📆
Not *that* sort of calendar girl 😝 – I put everything on my wall calendar and in my planner. No matter where I am I’ll always be able to plan and make appointments with a quick glance.
I also colour code Birthdays,🎂 personal activities,🍾 and work duties.📝
So there you have it, my top five tips for productivity.
