    Don’t leave anything you can do straight away. Often it is quicker to do the task than to write it on a list.

    Categorise your to-dos – it’s so easy to tick off the simple and easy and ignore the difficult (and often more important!) tasks. I create green (easy), orange (medium) and red (hard) tasks and complete at least 3 green, 2 orange and 1 red each day. My traffic light to dos as I call them work a treat!

    Has anyone else started writing their New Years resolutions? So many great productivity tips already, but here’s mine:

    -define and clarify your goals
    -break jobs down into actionable chunks
    -set timelines and stay on track
    -set routines and create habits, and most importantly
    -find inspiration!

    Yep, I’m gonna need a planner :)

    Plan ahead and make lists. Cross things off your list as you do it, and you’ll always be on track, and never wander around thinking “what did I have to do today?”

  17. Ruth Wollerton

    Definitely take time away from social media! Put time aside to look at facebook, instagram, youtube etc but then schedule time without it! You’d be amazed how focused and productive you can be!! xx

  22. Louise K
    23rd November 2016 / 7:19 am

    Make a to-do list which includes EVERYTHING you need to achieve that day, including small tasks.
    It gives you a sense of achievement when you cross something off your list and the small tasks also take up time. It’s important to consider them too. :)

    I don’t really have a best tip for being productive…I’m a procrastinator and very easily distracted so really not very good at being productive.

    I do try to be more mindful of my procrastination these days. I keep a brain dump journal and write in it every morning with a few sentences about my current mood and what I wish to accomplish during the day. I then add a short to do checklist of the most important tasks. At the end of the day I revisit the task list and then do a quick write up of how the day went.

    Dubbed “Queen of the Lists” by family members. It’s my only hope of being productive , keeping appointments, having food in the cupboard… My ‘helpers’ are ‘take everywher’ purse-sized diary and a magnetic ‘fridge organiser/diary using an erasable ‘write-on’ pen.

    Turn wooden clothes pegs into fridge magnets to organize and hang papers, to-do notes, photos, and cards. To make them, remove the springs, and lightly sand wood with sandpaper. Coat with acrylic paint, let dry. Reattach springs, and affix a magnet to one side of each pin with multipurpose glue.

    Prioritise; Urgent and Important tasks go first, then urgent but not important, then not important but urgent followed by not urgent and not important.

    Also, anything you can achieve today to make tomorrow easier is worthwhile investing time in. ie making kids lunches the night before.

    I used to have tips and tricks that made me a productivity queen. And then I had 2 more children – 3 kids are sooo much more challenging than 1.
    Now my productivity trick is to have a stash of Playdoh and bubble blowers at all times. Keeping my little darling occupied for 5 minutes allows me time to get something done without them UNDOING something else at the same time.
    Its amazing how much my definition of productivity has changed since having kids.

    In this day and age of technology, never underestimate the effectiveness of good old pen and paper. You are more likely to remember what you have written down by hand and therefore you are much more efficient and productive!

    Don’t Be Afraid to Say No
    This is a standard productivity tip, but it makes the rounds for a reason–when you’re too eager to please, you often end up getting in over your head. it’s not simply a matter of being agreeable, when you take on too much, all your work suffers.

  82. Monica Gilbert
    13th November 2016 / 11:15 am

    Make a to do list in the order you want to get the items done. Ideally pencil in the times you’re planning on spending on each task. If one finishes early, you can reward yourself with a short break to keep motivation high. And it it’s taking too long, you can walk away without guilt (for that day) because you’re moving on to something else.

  84. 12th November 2016 / 10:37 pm

    Without a doubt – lists! The feeling of ticking things off is incredible. But it’s also essential to allow yourself some down time, otherwise you just obsess about getting away from the desk!

  85. Kathleen

    Drink more water. When you’re dehydrated, you’ll have far less energy. And get less done.

    Life is messy , so I keep my personal diary and smartphone to remain my daily activities. I check it every night before I go to sleep. It is my favourite way to do things with my personal notebook . I really love this prize . Thank you.

  91. 11th November 2016 / 11:41 pm

    I plan ahead and if there’s something I can do before time I like to get it out of the way. Things like wrapping presents or writing on cards I often do days before the event so it’s not a crazy rush on the way out the door.

  92. Kristy F
    11th November 2016 / 9:27 pm

    Keeping a calendar on my phone with everything I need to do from appointments, to phone calls I need to make, forms I need to fill in, little things I need to do/remember. If I don’t do it on that day I bring it forward until I have done it. I always have my phone on me so I can easily keep track of what I need to do.

  93. Aunty Party (Christine)
    11th November 2016 / 8:27 pm

    I think too much and worry too often and tend to procrastinate; if I write a list and tick the items off I feel productive and spend less time on the internet, which is so seductive.

  96. Diana R
    11th November 2016 / 2:26 pm

    When I’m feeling tired and run down I am much less productive, so a healthy diet and consistent sleep routine help heaps. I also use a check list and wall calendar to remind me of what needs to be done.

    Set small goals and work through them continuously, have a clear mindset, take time out of the busy schedule to rewind and relax and if all else fails stick sticky notes all over the house to remind you of these things!

  103. shelbyward

    Be task orientated, write lists and check them off. Don’t entertain the thought of a break until you have met your goals.

  104. Nicole Colletti
    10th November 2016 / 10:01 pm

    Stay focused,make lists and keep a big calendar with daily tasks. When I’m trying to get stuff done I give my phone to my kids to play with..keeps me from checking notifications and getting distracted! Cause they def don’t tell me when I have a notification!

  105. Jill-Anne
    10th November 2016 / 8:20 pm

    I’m a list-maker “tragic’ and take great pleasure in being able to tick items off my list. This is the only way I have ANY hope of being productive. List-making threatens to take over my life and sleep-time so pen and notebook are positioned on beside table so ideas can be jotted down, not worried that I’ll forget them before morning…. and back to sleep!

  106. Emma Foster
    10th November 2016 / 8:16 pm

    Write a list of what you wish to achieve during the day, and then work with a timer. I find it much easier to get moving if I tell myself I only need to work until the timer goes off. Do this several times a day, and your work is done. But if you’re feeling extra lazy, make sure you set the timer for your breaks too!

  107. Katie
    10th November 2016 / 6:35 pm

    Have a healthy breakfast then drink lots of water through the day

    10th November 2016 / 1:04 pm

    My best tip is to try to complete tasks as you go along, rather than doing bits and pieces of different ones, so you can tick them off your list and clear your mind somewhat. It’s not always possible though!

    Only handle things once, whatever you can do immediately do (eg open electricity bill, pay electricty bill and then its done instead of looking at it 10 times before its due date).
    Whatever you can’t do make sure you write it down because its easy to forget everything.
    Always have a reminder for important events/occassions like graduations, formals, birthdays etc

    What works for me is having lists – and being organized. I try to get as much ready the night before for the next day, and writing it all down. It means two lists – the must do, then the other list is for things that are less urgent, but don’t want to forget. I love planners, too!

    A constant appraisal of the most important tasks is necessary to get through the day, by being able to be flexible and incorporating everything the day throws at you makes you able to think on your feet… creativity =productivity!

    My best tip to be productive, you may ask?
    Write it down! Yup for every list for every task.

    Why is “write it down” my best tip?
    Let me enumerate the reasons and don’t give give me lip.

    How can you be productive if you forget?
    When you write it down, you won’t, I bet.

    Put lists to paper then you’ll see
    That you can check things off so easily.

    It’ll give you confidence that you can do it
    You’ll do much more and put more umph into it

    Write down your goals, be them many or one
    And you’ll see how far you’ve come

    When you write it down it becomes more “real”
    So put it to paper and commit to doing it, hold yourself accountable and it’ll be for the better, I hope you’ll feel.

    Motivation. I believe in delayed gratification. After I complete a task, I treat myself to something nice. That helps one become more motivated to get things done.
    I love Erin Condren products. Finger’s crossed to win a planner for 2017. :) Thank you! XOXO

    Get up a bit earlier (before the family) and plan your day while you have a morning coffee. Cross off everything that was done yesterday, add in anything extra that needs doing and work out your priorities for today (must do, important, would like to do, can be left till later etc)

  130. 9th November 2016 / 6:05 pm

    A good nights sleep, early wake up. Make your bed (first productive move of the day) and go for a walk to think of the things you’ll achieve that day.

    My best tip is to do something today that your future self will thank you for. By that I mean things like:
    * laying out your clothes the night before. Takes 5 mins at night, half an hour in the morning.
    * cooking double quantities of your meals and freezing half for a night when you are busy/sick/tired.
    * stocking the nappy/work bag the night before for big days/important meetings.
    * Buying things in 2’s, for example, I buy 2 paper towels at a time. When the first one runs out and I start the second one, I immediately replace them so I never run out. Same principal for 2 water jugs in the fridge-one is always cold.
    * Writing a meal plan each week with a matching grocery list. That way, when you have a busy week, you can use an old one and just check which of the groceries listed you actually need.
    * Having a present wrapping stash and blank cards stash. Bonus points for keeping a small gifts stash.
    * Buying groceries online so you can just resubmit previous week’s orders.
    * Paying a tiny bit off monthly bills like phones each week so you never get a big bill.
    Hope these are helpful!

    Being a major list maker saves me so much grief! I can plan ahead, know when things are due and always feel in control

  140. 9th November 2016 / 2:07 pm

    My best tip for being productive?…develope a routine, things you do everyday without fail. Giving the small stuff a place in your daily/weekly routine give you time to really dig into the larger issues. Oh yes, almost forgot…write down everything, even if you dnt thing it’s important.

  141. 9th November 2016 / 1:59 pm

    Ummm….try not to juggle too many balls in the air?? Bordering on impossible, but I need to learn to say no and keep my goals prioritised. Writing things down would be an excellent leap.

  142. 9th November 2016 / 1:56 pm

    My life is a mess; I am a constant hopper from one thing to the next!! Aaaggghhh! Help.

  143. 9th November 2016 / 1:35 pm

    Being productive means writing everything down! Brain dump often and then prioritise. It’s ok if not everything gets done quickly! Well that’s what I tell myself anyway!

    I try to stay productive by keeping a checklist, usually putting the most dreaded task first and work my way to the easiest last. I try to limit any distractions and reward myself if I complete my entire list. Being productive, especially at my job, as well as motivated and accomplishing tasks on my checklist is a pretty rewarding feeling but I keep the extra incentive to stay focused and keep my productivity in check.????

    Create a to do list the night before so you can’t procrastinate in the morning.

  147. 9th November 2016 / 12:35 pm

    I always have a hand written to do list in my planner. There is just something about hand writing something that makes it more urgent and have a sense of importance in my crazy life.

    9th November 2016 / 11:11 am

    I write EVERYTHING down! I currently have a calendar beside me, a note book I carry around and a planner in the kitchen! I also get up and get moving every day – whether it’s a walk or a swim I find it gets me focused

  153. 9th November 2016 / 10:47 am

    I stay productive by keeping lists for EVERYTHING in my Erin Condren Life Planner. I plan, I prep, nothing is left unorganized.. from school lunches to the bathroom vanity.. everything always has a place and that’s what keeps my mind sane and my days productive :)

    Start the day positively. I wake up half an hour before every one else in my house. I have my coffee and quietly catch up on news and friends. This means when ever one else gets up I am fresh and ready for what may come!

    My best tip for being creative is listening to good music – usually instrumental for me, so I don’t get lyrics jotted down into what I’m doing. And then just go for it!

    Definitely take time away from social media! Put time aside to look at facebook, instagram, youtube etc but then schedule time without it! You’d be amazed how focused and productive you can be!!
