How to use the Productive Day Planner
First, download the daily planner. Print 14 copies (or more).
For each day, assign your number one goal for the day. Include scheduled appointments/calls you have planned. Decide 3 main tasks and what to-do’s you must finish. On the right of the must-do box is a space to include tasks that can wait. Should you finish your mandatory tasks, move to those can-wait tasks. There is a tomorrow section that allows you to see what tasks are coming up!
How do you track productivity?
Track your performance by using the time tracker or using a productivity tracker. In our daily productivity planner, there are ways to assign targets and track time in 25-minute intervals (which is suggested to do by the Pomodoro technique).
What is the Pomodoro technique?
The concept is this: Break your workday into 25-minute chunks separated by five-minute breaks. These intervals are named pomodoros. After four Pomodoro’s, you take a longer break of about 15 minutes. By doing this, you are more likely to stay focused and avoid mindless tasks like logging on social media for hours on end.
If you want to get more done, consider making changes to your daily habits. It can be challenging at first, but when you make tiny changes over time it feels less daunting! Stop wasting the time you have and use these productivity tools to set and reach your goals. Let me know how the process goes for you and if you have any productivity hacks yourself!
