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:
- 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).
- Make sure you list things you WANT to do and things you HAVE to do.
- When you're ready for work, pull out your trusty Now & Later worksheet and write down the 1st 3 things you intend to do.
- Work like a boss on task one, and see how your brain reacts.
- Stick with it friend, and give yourself a high-five after each completed task!
- When someone or something important threatens to take you off task, just calmly and confidently write it down in the LATER category.
- At the end of the day, incorporate your LATER list into Asana or Google Calendar.
- 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.
