Learning to be productive everyday!

If you are like me you are constantly having tasks/to-dos added to your daily work load. Emails, phone calls, requests, reoccurring tasks and projects can consume me. Believe it or not I am not a detail guy:) I have to work to stay focused and focused on the right things at the right time! I have tried numerous different solutions… sticky notes, notebook, Outlook Tasks, different to-do/tasks programs, but for the past 10 months I have found a program that works really well for me. It allows me to keep track of reoccurring projects, daily tasks and projects. Here are few things that makes it awesome!

  • I can share with my assistant.
  • I can set up projects and link tasks to that project.
  • I can set time needed, due dates and sub-tasks.
  • I can manage my time and priorities.
  • I can email directly to the program.
  • It is easy to use!
  • It provides apps for my iPhone and iPad, as well as a desktop version.
  • I can link to Evernote and Dropbox.

I know you are thinking a program will not make me organized, but having a program that is organized, provides tools and helpful resources for getting organized is a great place to start… From a practical standpoint, here are a few things I do everyday. 

  • Review my daily tasks and realign if I need to.
  • I manage my follow-up for phone, email and in person conversations with Nozbe.
  • I have enter all of my reoccurring daily tasks.
  • I email tasks and follow up directly to the program and update the task to prioritize.
  • I manage my personal work projects here, I take the time to map them out so I can accomplish them in a methodical order. Plus my day is often interrupted numerous times so this allows me to tackle parts of project and come back to them for completion.
  • I also love the idea of checking things off my list – I am driven by results, so having a program that allows me to track tasks and “check them off” keeps me focused and encourages me to see things getting done.
