5 Productivity Tips + Hacks

Recently have been asked to speak on panels and taught classes on productivity tips and hacks. As a professional organizer, I get asked constantly to help others stay productive, so they have more time. Who doesn't want more time on their hands?! I will hopefully do a series and continue to post productivity tips and hacks. Below are 5 tips and hacks that I and many of my clients use.

Use the Pomodoro technique. This is great technique to use to really stay focused. You pick a task to get accomplished and set a timer for 25 minutes. Then after the timer dings you take a 5 minute break. If you focus on one thing at a time it will help you get more accomplished and be more productive.

Use site blockers. Site blockers are a great way to not be on certain sites while you are trying to complete tasks. Like social media sites. 

Prep the night before. This helps so much when you are trying to get ready in the morning. If you have your clothes already picked out, lunch possibly made, what you need for the next day, etc. it can be a huge time saver. 

Outsource tasks. If you outsource things like errands, admin tasks, etc. you can gain so much more time to do things you love. This is where Eco Modern Concierge comes in ;)

Do what you can and stay positive. Simple as that. You can't do it all and if have a great attitude all will work out just fine.
