Do you find you struggle some days to be productive? What strategies do you use? How do you help others in your organisation be more productive?
This is an awesome question. I block out times in my calendar throughout my day to work on specific projects, even if it doesn’t involve a traditional meeting. This allows me to set aside time to work on something, while also giving me an “end time.” I find I’m most productive in short sprints, rather than trying to work on the same thing for hours at a time. In addition, this can help me carve out time in a schedule that might potentially get booked over by other types of meetings.
Would love to hear how others address this! I’m always looking for ways to keep improving my productivity
I also block out times on my calendar and I’ve started using the Pomodoro Technique. I find that choosing one thing to work on, setting a shorter timer and allowing myself more frequent breaks has helped me focus much better and thus be more productive over the course of my day.
