For the last four months I have been using the Day Designer planner to help me be more productive and use my time wisely. For the months of October through December, I used the planner page you can download from the website and then when my 2015 planner arrived, I started using it. Blocking out my time has really helped me get more done in a day AND allow for time for the things I want to do, like working out and spending time with my husband and friends. There is a section at the top of the planner page for the three most important tasks you want to accomplish and this in itself has been amazing at keeping me on task. I can use the section with each hour broken down to plan work blocks and the section on the right is where I make my to do list. Everyone uses their Day Designer a little differently, but the design will work for almost everyone, no matter how they use it.
This is the planner cover I chose! It's called Carrie Floral and it features my two current fave colors- pink and teal!
The other tool/system I swear by is a blogging editorial calendar and I will share about that in next week's Multi-Tasking Monday post.
Just a reminder that multi-tasking really doesn't work and maybe time blocking won't work for you, but don't get discouraged. Keep trying different methods of getting things done until you find the one that works for you!
I would love to know what tools or resources you use to stay productive! Share yours in the comments!
