Get Your Best Work Done... Today!

Become your most happily-productive self, starting today.

If you're like me, you have grand plans to get a lot of creative projects done and then the day goes by and nearly anything has been checked off your to-do list. 

How does it happen? 

Well, I can personally say it's because I struggle to stay on task because as I work, so many distractions pop up that seem important enough to veer me off my well-planned day map. 

However, we've come up with a solution to help combat Creative Distraction (that's what we call it). It's our Now & Later worksheet and it's as sweet as the candy for which it's named. 

Directions for proper use:

  1. In the morning or the night before, plan your day hour by hour on your calendar or scheduling app (we like Google Calendar or Asana).
  2. Make sure you list things you WANT to do and things you HAVE to do. 
  3. When you're ready for work, pull out your trusty Now & Later worksheet and write down the 1st 3 things you intend to do.
  4. Work like a boss on task one, and see how your brain reacts.
  5. Stick with it friend, and give yourself a high-five after each completed task! 
  6. When someone or something important threatens to take you off task, just calmly and confidently write it down in the LATER category.
  7. At the end of the day, incorporate your LATER list into Asana or Google Calendar. 
  8. Celebrate with a cocktail, sparkling water, beer or just the pure satisfaction that you are doing what you love as well as what needs to get done.
