I like to occasionally drop a productivity focused podcast in the email. Gets me thinking about what I’m doing (or not doing) so hope it does the same for you.
Paul Minors is an Asana and Pipedrive specialist as well as productivity blogger, and drops some good tips in this interview on Hustle & Flowchart podcast.
- Use time blocking to get a view of what you can realistically cross off your task list. Work from your calendar and not your task list. Doesn’t have to be rigid – move things around as life gets in the way of a perfectly planned day. And remember to include some “white space” as buffer.
- Learn how to use tools to set up automated workflows (for personal stuff as well as work). This is a note to self more than anything – Zapier can do amazing things, use it. TextExpander also sounds like a huge time saver for writing.
- Use the 4Ds for inbox management (email and life’s inbox). For everything that comes in you can decide to Do it, Delegate it, Drop it or Defer it.
