Be More Productive This Spring By Becoming an Organizing Machine

March 20, 2012

By clearing the clutter off of your desk you also clear the cobwebs out of your mind. Here are 4 easy to follow steps that will help you be more productive.

1) Prioritize Your To-dos

Tasks always have a way of piling up. That’s ok… it happens to all of us. Fortunately, we can use the simple “80/20 rule” to cut that pile down to size in no time.

2) Plan Your Day

Prioritizing is just one of the keys to getting things done like power producers. Planning your day frees your mind to focus on the task at hand.

3) Get A Head Start On Tomorrow’s Work

At the end of each day write the next day’s schedule. You can do this at the beginning of the week, but chances are that grand plan will be dismantled by the second day. At the end of this day you know what to anticipate based on what did or did not get completed.

4) Be Careful With Delegation

Are you assigning it to the right person, or are you giving tasks to someone else will delegate for you? Simply handing assignments down the line can lead to issues later. If the person is not familiar with the client or project thus far this could create more confusion than help your business. Web-based software like Basecamp and Todoist let you easily assign tasks, collaborate, share files and calendars across everyone’s communication devices.
