10 Tips for a Productive Day

I believe having a productive day is all down to planning, prioritising and focusing.  Check out my tips below:

  1. At the end of your working day write out your “To Do” list for tomorrow and prioritise the tasks using the MoSCoW System (see previous blog for further information – ‘Week 2 – Prioritising’)
  2. Work out a timetable for the next day (see previous post – ‘Weekly Timetable – Upgraded’)
  3. The night before prepare your things for the next day e.g. clothes, laptop, papers, tickets etc.
  4. Ensure you have a good night’s sleep
  5. Start your day with a healthy breakfast
  6. Look at your “To Do” List and Daily Planner first thing. Get started straight away
  7. Take regular breaks but keep them short
  8. Avoid distractions like Facebook, MySpace, personal calls
  9. Take a lunch break away from your desk
  10. Be positive

Have a productive day!

    Good advice Emma – I follow some of it but am very bad about face book, twitter and lunch at my desk (though to be fair to me in my office there is no where else)

      Thanks for your comment Catherine. I think many of us get carried away on social media sites! With regard to lunch even if there is no where else to eat do you try and go out for a walk – just to get some fresh air and have a break?
