7 ways to be more productive

Hi friends! How’s the morning treating you? Hope you enjoyed the goat cheese queso recipe. 🙂 Today I thought we could share some planning and productivity tips with each theory. 

This is something I’ve had some questions about lately, and I thought I’d share since I always love to hear what strategies help others make the most out of their day. To be honest, I thrive on a modest amount of procrastination. Nothing makes me work harder than knowing something is DUE, and I tend to do the best work and have laser focus under pressure. I’ll complete small tasks along the way, but the night before a big project is due is when you’ll really find me cranking along. (Hi, night before Summer Shape Up. Every. Time.) I’m also easily overwhelmed, and if I have too much going on, I’ll find myself avoiding things. For this reason, I really have to motivate myself to keep momentum going so I don’t find myself beneath a mountain of looming deadlines and untouched work. 

At the same time, I’m pretty organized because there’s a lot going on around here. I work from home and out of the home, so I make sure the kiddos are taken care of, get the most out of my work time, plan for the nights where I teach (usually the Pilot is home), with preschool, extra activities, doctors’ appointments, and the necessary chores for our family and house.

Here are some of the things that have helped me to stay on top of things: (for the most part. Things still fall down the cracks every now and again haha)

Does anyone know the answer to this? Please kindly respond in the comments below. The end. Just kidding.

Spring clean your fitness routine
