1 Simple Thing Actions:

Episode 191: BLAST Through Distractions and Disruptions

1 Simple Thing Action:
Try to organize your to-do lists in “Modes.” Examples would be “Email Mode” or “High Energy Mode” or even “Planning Mode.” We tend to work better when we can tap into the mode we are naturally wanting to be in, and by organizing our list that way we can get more of the right things done more often.

Episode 192: How to Theme Your Day for Maximum Productivity

1 Simple Thing Action:
Start using your calendar for date-specific appointments only. Then you can start using your calendar as more of a framework than a ruling approach to your day. Try to “theme” your days. That will give you something valuable to look at, and when you wake up in the morning your brain is already predisposed to know which are the types of tasks you need to get done today.

Episode 193: Simple Planning Tools To ROCK Your Year

1 Simple Thing Action:
Segment out your to do list so that it is more…doable. Using modes, projects, and even scheduling can help give you three different ways to take all of the stuff you need and want to do for the day. Then look at the rest of the year and theme the remaining months of this year. That will give you a framework that will lead you to your destination at the end of the day, week, month, and year, no matter when you start your “year.”

Episode 194: Measuring Your Productivity

1 Simple Thing Action:
Start keeping a journal or daily log of how things are going every day. It can be an unstructured, stream of consciousness type of stuff if that works for you. The key is to create pathways back to the beginning of your week so that the review process is easier and done more often.
